The Sims 3 frequent crashing.

Post by QCompliant on Mon 02 Oct 2017, 13:35

Okay, so i got all my sims 3 files from here, installed and they worked perfectly except for the occasional freezes and such. After adding mods it also worked fine till it didn't and i have to uninstall my sims 3. I reinstalled again and the game wouldn't even have time to load before it crashed and it was happening so frequently that i figured maybe i didn't delete all sims 3 file before reinstalling. Then i deleted all sims 3 files, uninstalled and reinstalled for the third time. It was working perfectly yesterday which was when i reinstalled but today, it keeps crashing like 2 minutes into the game. Ave gone online to check for solutions and none seem to be working so i need help cos i wanna install the other sims 3 worlds. I have no mod or cc. Thanks

Just a follow-up question: are you playing any other games on that particular computer, and if so, how is the performance there?

Good luck!

If the tips in the linked thread above don't yield much success for you, then there is still the option of uninstalling some of the expansions or stuffpacks from The Sims 3, which you do not like/care much about. It's an uncomfortable solution, but then again, The Sims 3 it notorious for not being very well 'optimized'. Plus, laptops are generally not made for gaming purposes, so that oftentimes - not always, but oftentimes - adds another layer of complexity to these issues.
