Have you tried installing the Super Patch from the official Sims website? You can find instructions here:

You will most likely need to reapply the latest crack afterwards.

I tried what you suggested and it lasted longer before it crashed, but I can live with it- since i can now save multiple times before it crashes. Thanks antiskub Laughing

Hey, antiskub. How do you download from there? Do I need to be registered or something? Because I've tried and there's no way I can download it.

I don't believe you need to be registered. Do the links not work for you or what is the error you are getting exactly?

Do you have popups blocked?
Have you tried using different browsers?

Sweet! Don't forget that you will most likely need to reapply the crack if you use the official Super Patch Very Happy

I won't! Thank you. Very Happy But... Is it normal that it's still downloading? It says is going to take 3 more hours. I'm not downloading anything else and my Internet connection is slow but NOT SO SLOW. It is stuck at 435MB.

No that is not normal; it should download in a similar amount of time as the manual patch that's on this website (about 10 minutes for me sitting in this coffee shop).

Have you tried redownloading it? Maybe there's a firewall issue that's obstructing it? Or someone in the house being a bandwidth hog Razz

It never happens with other things I download, just with this file. I'm going to tell my siblings to stop using internet for a while and going try to download it again. I'll let you know.
Thanks! Very Happy

By the way, 10 minutes???? Who are you?? Internet's King? Razz

I don't know what connections are like in Europe (I see you live in Spain!), but here in the US where I live there's wireless internet everywhere and a lot of Internet Service Providers offer it for free in addition to the broadband connection you pay for at home. I assumed Europe would have much nicer internet infrastructure than here (we still use wooden posts to hold up electrical wires; it's really sad.) Embarassed

So, we can try to figure out why you have a bottleneck. The first thing I would do is just reset my router; 75% of the time that fixes it. Also clearing your browser's cache and redownloading the patch may work.

This article has some tips that can help you in more detail:

OMG! Look at this:

It's so Paranormal Activity! Very Happy My last post was at 5.57 and it's 7.47 right now, so I guess there's must be something wrong with my connection.
We may have better internet infrastructure but our Internet Service Providers are soooo expensive and (sorry about using this word) CRAP. We have to pay a lot of money for a poor internet connection.

I'm going to do what you've just said and see if it fixes this. It's the fifth time I try to download the Patch from EA webpage and it never finishes downloading.

Update: No, no way I can download this. I did everything you said and it still "stops" at 300 and something MB. Don't know what else to try.

Even after clearing out your browser cache? Hm...

You can try looking around for other places to download the Super Patch from and see what happens... but I find it strange that you can't get it from the website itself. I tried it myself (when not logged into my account), on two different computers, and it worked fine. I'm not sure how to help you other than send you to Google to troubleshoot your internet connection Sad

Yes, that's the thing. I can download it from other places but not from EA official website. They hate me I'm starting to think... Very Happy
Thanks again for your help, man.
