Each time or is it random ?

 

Also, did you ever try a new save game for testing purposes to see if it happens there as well ?

 

How often does this issue occur? Does it occur with all households, or one in particular?

 

Can you  provide a save with a household where this was seen to occur regularly?

Willing to share your save game ?

If so, please zip up this folder: documents\electronicarts\thesims4\saves and drop the file to this Mediafire-Link to upload.

 

Please make sure to name the zip file with your user name.

 

 

Also could you attach your DxDiag to your post ?

Yes, am still having this problem. Can't be my laptop because it's a gaming rig that can easily handle much more than TS4. Game gets stuck trying to take a picture, can still move the screen using the mouse but no response to the keyboard. Only option is to end task via Windows. Very, very, very annoying because I just lost hours of gameplay... again. Ugh.

Do you get this every time or only when taking multiple photos ?

Not every time. I am playing a Sim who loves taking pictures and it happens about once every few times. Just happened again - I keep forgetting to save my game so I just lost lots of progress again. Not sure if it's related to taking multiple pictures.... I do often have my Sim take multiple so it could be - but I can't say with certainty.
