GAME KEEPS FREEZING! HELP PLEASE!!!!

Post by yesenia05 on Wed 02 Jan 2013, 02:27

Okay so I downloaded the Sims 3 Seasons exactly how it was instructed. The first and second day of playing went smoothly and perfectly fine. But,for some reason it is now freezing up constantly. I thought it was a perfect game, and well it is, but now I just can't play it because of the freezing. Please help!!! I really enjoy this game and hope to be able to play like I did the first time Sad

Did you add any mods or cc, or change any of the in-game settings?

No, I don't download any mods. But I do have a few store content on my game which I've deleted the useless ones and kept the rest.. Oh and one thing, soon after it began to freeze up and it started to frustrate me, I decided to see if lowering the graphics would help but I ended putting it back to normal cause it didnt even let me change the settings without freezing.

In your My Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3 folder there is a file called Options.ini - you can change the graphics options in there, but you'd have to know the identifiers of what you're wanting to change (ie: running full screen is "fullscreen" and it's boolean, so 0 is off, 1 is on).

I don't seem to have a file called Options.ini, all I have is "Caches" "Game Data" "Game" "Support" and "Thumbnails". And I dont see Options.ini in either of those.

I think you're looking in the wrong spot. Should be in My Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3 -- not the installation directory.

Since I'm not sitting at your computer I can't really give any good advice on what exactly to change, but I will list the options that are graphics related. If I put (bool) to the side it means 0 or 1, where 0 is off and 1 is on, otherwise it's just a regular number where 0 is low and the maximum is unknown (to me anyway).

terrainqualtiy
(bool)showplacementgrid
visualeffects
maxactivelots
(bool)objecthiding (recomended: 0)
resolution
simquality
lightingquality
snowenabled
rainenabled
fullscreen
aspectratio (recomended: 0)
treequality
(bool)advancedrendering
drawdistance
postfilterflags
(bool)fogenabled
forcesquarepixels
generalreflectsions
texturequality
animationssmoothing

Okay thank you, is there anything else you would highly suggest to do?
(Btw, do you think it possibly has anything to do with the fact that ever since it started to freeze up was when I downloaded TS3 Seasons from here and maybe that could be affecting it?) Idk I just really wanna play and im so worried that I'm annoying you right now lol but thanks for trying to help me anyways..... Oh an Ive never had to change any graphic settings until now Sad
