CAW edit in game not working?

Post by KayaKlaw on Tue Jan 29, 2013 12:47 pm

Now that you guys helped me get my Sims working I have downloaded CAW! I've been having bundles of fun with it, but edit in game just doesn't seem to be working? Any idea on how this can be fixed?

I downloaded form here: http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t7423-download-link-for-the-create-a-world-tool

I click the button and it asks if I want to run Edit in game mode, then the world I'm making flashes blue and nothing else happens....

Hello,

It can take a loooong time for edit in game to start loading. But see if this helps at all.

Okay, now Sims 3 is loading but I'm getting "Sims 3 has stopped working" after it loads Sad

//EDIT

I don't think its a computer issue? My computer is very fast, the bar loads in about 2 minutes.
It crashes a few seconds after it reaches the page where it gives game tips.

Hello,

Not sure if this helps at all, but try it anyway: http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t857-the-sims-3-crashes-freezes-to-desktop-fix-updated-on-29-09-2012
Especially the DEP fix. (If possible, add all of the CAW .exe files to the DEP exceptions too)

There only seems to be one for CAW and it says it must have DEP enabled...

Hello,

I had no trouble adding CAW.exe to the DEP, make sure you're logged on as Administrator.

Hello,

When you start the pc, do you choose a user account? You can also right click the icon you use, and pick "run as Admin".

Hello,

On Windows 8, you can click the "Desktop" tile in the Start Menu to go to your Desktop. From there, it's pretty much the same as Windows 7. (You can use the [WINDOWS KEY] + [E] to open Explorer)

Hello,

Ok, you probably are administrator then. lets see... Did you add all the other game exe's to the DEP?
I have to say that EIG didn't exactly become more stable since the latest update. I create my lots in the actual game because EIG crashes so much, and place them in EIG from the library, but it crashes upon saving every time. Depending on when it crashes during saving, I may or may not have to place the lots again. It's rather annoying since it takes forever to load Rolling Eyes

I'm having the same problem, have had for a long time, managed to rule out what you were talking about and the fix that is on here, changing S3W or what it's called only made it worse, should i make a diffrent post for my problem maybe?
