I can't save my sims 3 game!

★★ Newbie

I have the sims 3 on my macbook and saving has never been a problem before but these last couple of days when I click save or save as, the saving sceen stays there forever like its frozen so I have to turn my computer off.  It would be awesome if someone could help me out thanks.

Can you try if you have this issue in all your save games or only in one ? Start a new one to see if it happens there too.

I've had the exact same problem as well and it's starting to grate on my nerves a bit.  Any tips or advice on how to remedy this would be most helpful!

I play on a macook to and my game does this when I try to save.

What I do is that I let it be there for a while, and when I´m tired of looking at it I press "CMD+SHIFT" and it minimizes the game so that you get back to your screensaver.

Then I "force quit" and most of the times when I go back to play the game it has saved.

 

I recommend you start up your game and changes the hairstyle of a sim or just do a minor change in your active game and then try to use "CMD+SHIFT"

Is there a similar trick for a Windows-based computer?

I just had this same problem. I fixed it by deleting my cache files and reloading the game. There is a step by step on the SimsWiki.

I've found that on windows if you have any cheats other than the cash cheats, the saving screen will be forever. But my issue is, is there a way to stop the saving process so that i can undo the cheats???
