Sims 3 Create-A-Sim glitch

Post by oddthing on Sun 16 Dec 2012, 03:10

Hey!
So, I've installed the base game and Pets, and I've also installed the manual updates and the ultimate fix with no issue. In fact, my game works rather fast and I don't see an issue until I get to Create-a-Sim.
When creating a sim(not a pet, a regular sim), I have free control as would be normal for the first couple minutes - I can edit it how I please. After that, though, and seemingly randomly, there's a graphic glitch where it stops updating the sim as I click on changes. After another minute, it glitches entirely and won't let me move to different tabs, to the options menu, etc. Interestingly, the music is still playing and my sim is still blinking and acting normal(just not with my changes). Since I can't access Options in order to exit, I just ctrl+alt+delete out and it says the game has stopped responding.
Every other part of the game renders smoothly and quickly. I've tried editing my graphics settings, turning off my antivirus program before starting Sims 3, and just waiting to see if it will eventually load my changes but this never works. I also do not have anything running in the background while playing Sims.
Any idea what this could be about? Thank you for reading!

Hello,

Welcome.
Do you have mods/cc? If you do, try it without the mods folder to see if one of your mods causes this. Just temporarily backup and remove the mods folder to test this.

No, none at all. It's a completely fresh game, so to speak. I haven't added anything to it.

Did you have The Sims 3 previously installed on your computer?
