Error: Sims 3 has stopped working.

Post by NaomiPheonix on Thu 13 Dec 2012, 05:36

This is an error I get every time I try to open my sims 3, Error: Sims 3 has stopped working, then I am offered two solutions, try looking online for a solution, or close the program.
I have installed all the mods I want to, updated everything, cracked everything, and ultimately fixed everything. I have also removed all my mods and custom content. Yet I continue to get this error, has anyone else had this problem, more importantly does anyone know of a solution?

I have gone through and tried all of the solutions, none have worked for me.
I had all the other expansions and they had been working fine, I had custom content, mods, the whole shabang. Only after installing the Seasons expansion have I gotten this problem.

Are you using the launcher? If so, does the error occur when you start the launcher or is this after you click the "Play" button?

Is there a down arrow on the lower left of the error box that says something along the lines of "View Details" ? If so, could you paste the details for us please?

I use the sims launcher, it happens no matter which one I use, whether its the one I was using prior to the download, the one that was placed on my desktop after the installation or the ones in my actual electronic arts folder. The error appears after I pres the actual play button.
Here are the details from my error message.

Fault Module Version: 0.2.0.177

This is the line that catches my attention. My version is 0.2.190, and when I use my 0.2.0.177 backed-up file, I have the same error - with the exact same details (baring Locale). Have you copied all of the updated cracks properly?

Hmmm... yes, I was very careful, and when I got this error I made sure to re do all the cracks again, and then a third time.

Download the file here: http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t752-the-sims-3-ultimate-fix-should-fix-most-of-your-problems

Extract it. Go into the # Crack folder, copy the two files to your Sims 3 installation location replacing the others. That should get your game working, as long as everything else is proper.

Oh gosh, I feel like an idiot... I had downloaded my torrent from pirate bay, from the same guy so it came with the ultimate fix. Perhaps it was outdated because the game is running perfectly now.
Thank you so much for your help!
