The Sims 3 text balloons not showing / missing fix.

Post by Webmaster on Mon 28 Feb 2011, 23:35

Hello everyone,

If you're playing The Sims 3, but you can't see text balloons and / or a lot of text is missing, you can fix it by changing the game's language to "English". You can do this as following:

1. Open "Start" and type "regedit" in the search box. After that, press [ENTER].
2. When the Registry Editor has opened, navigate to this path: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE > Sofware > Sims > The Sims 3 (Be sure that you're navigating to exactly this path!)
If it's not in that path, it may be here: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE > SOFTWARE > Wow6432Node > Sims > The Sims 3 (Be sure that you're navigating to exactly this path!)

3. Now you'll see a file called "Locale". Double-click on it and change the value to "EN-us".
4. Click "OK", close the Editor and... ENJOY playing!
