[OPEN] [GTW] Can't purchase advertising

[ Edited ]
★★★★ Novice

Hello.

 

1)  My game is updated to 1.7.65.1020 patch.
2) I've tested game after reparing, reinstallation, at clear save(vanilla game), without mods and CC, after deleting cache and scratch folder in saves folder with origin off and on.
3)  I have GTW, LP and OR.
4)  My computer specs are good for playing game (I'm playing on PC) and also my graphics settings are set on medium and my game never crashed.(!) Graphic is updated also.

 

The bug:


Bug with purchase advertising - I can't buy advertising on cash register after buying them once.
The option "purchase advertising" is greyed out , even when the advertising campaigns are end. Tested on vanilla game too.

 

I've seen also few people describe this problem in Sims Forum - this original one.
---
Sorry for language issues, I'm from Poland.
Hope that someone will find or have found the solution !

I'm having this issue also. I can purchase short and long term web advertising but I can't purchase the short or long TV ad because it's greyed out and says "Let the current ad campaign finish before purchasing more advertising." and its been many sim and real life days that have passed.

This is still an issue after the March 2016 patch.  It doesn't work for both forms of advertising:

 

This is the message my Sim gets when they purchase advertising:

  • We fixed an issue that was preventing the Sim from purchasing additional advertising for their retail lot once the initial advertising had completed.


Fixed in Patch 1.24.102
