Sims 3 lag spikes (Help!)[SOLVED]

Post by R0ckstar on Sat 01 Dec 2012, 17:10

I recently started playing Sims 3 and all was well. I was able to play it fluidly on the highest settings. Then yesterday, I started to get these so called 'lag spikes' - where, for a couple of seconds, my character just stops, as do a lot of other things that should be in motion. Curiously, the little icon above his head continues to animate and trees continue to blow in the breeze etc.

Given that I've already established that I can play it on the highest settings without any trouble, does anyone know what the problem is and how I can get it to stop? - I've seen other users experience this problem, but none of their circumstances were entirely similar to mine.

Perhaps some sort of corrupted save file? (Although God-knows how that would have happened.)

My specs are:
WIN 8 Pro
Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-2630QM CPU @ 2.00GHz
6GB Installed Physical Memory.
NVIDIA GeForce GT 540M Cuda 2GB.
Drivers Up to Date.
Sims Version: 16.0.136.019001

Kind regards,

Marc
