Seasons crashes after loading a save file/starting a new game?[SOLVED]

Post by TheSphericalMiracle on Thu 22 Nov 2012, 00:42

I've searched high and low for a solution for my problem, but no one seems to have the exact problem I'm having.

I recently downloaded G4TW's Supernatural crack and was very pleased with it, so I decided to grab your Seasons crack, too. However, after I installed the crack (which went perfectly fine) I started up the game, and after I selected a save file to load, right after the loading bar filled completely, it crashed to the desktop and I got a window that says The Sims 3 has stopped working.
I already tried the Ultimate Fix*, my game is 100% updated, but I still have the issue, even when I attempt to start a new game (in that case, it crashes while loading CAS). Any ideas? :S

* As a side note, I don't really get how the Ultimate Fix works. What's the point of adding the files located in the expansion pack folders to the bin folder, then replacing them with the files in the #crack folder, which (I think...) are the same files? I figured I'd ask, because I don't know if I just didn't do it right, or if using the Ultimate Fix is really that confusing lol. Also, does the fact that my game was already updated before using the UF effect it? Because I recall a step that asked to update the game prior to copying the #crack folder files, but it was already updated.

If you have any questions, I'll be sure to answer them to the best of my abilities.
Thanks!

Edit:
And yes, I do have CC, but I had no problems with it when I got the Supernatural crack, so I don't believe it's the culprit.

Blah. Looks like I don't have the system requirements to run it. Oh well, I'll just have to wait until I upgrade from this crappy laptop of mine.

Thanks for your help though! Smile

//EDIT

Hm... it still crashes, even after uninstalling Seasons.

Did you apply the DEP? As seen on my given link.

Hello,

We've been speculating that it's actually the latest patch that causes a lot of these crashes.
If you were able to run Supernatural on your laptop, it should also meet the requirements for Seasons. Having all EP's may be too much on your system though, so you may want to downsize your game. It's what I did.
I am now running Seasons reasonably, but I uninstalled 3 EP's and all SP's to run it like this. I figured playing a downsized, incomplete Sims is better than not playing at all.

Cezra31: Yep, I did everything the list suggested I do, but no luck.
Lady ElDi: Good point! I know I've had troubles with patches crashing my game before, but it was before I tried any of the G4TW cracks. I only gave Generations and Supernatural, so I don't think the EPs are putting too much stress on my system.

Who knows. I'll cross my fingers and when there's a new patch/update I'll try using the crack again.

Thanks for all your help!
