@Abradley745 I had my Sim watch a movie and not only did the bar not move but the movie repeated itself and the Sim just kept watching it.

Ok, good to see it wasn't just me. I decided to try repairing my game before checking this error for the 3rd time... the game repair through origin seems to have fixed it, temporarily. No clue how long that will last.

Hello 🙂

 

Not sure if anyone already reported this but as stated above Watch a movie and Watch a movie with interactions are not working properly since last update.

 

Tried restarting the game and console and with different sims/households. Same for all. The movie will just repeatedly play in loop until I manually cancel it

Loaded an existing save, and I'm back to experiencing Movies stuck on a loop. Seem's it is fixable by repairing and making a new save. But any existing save file it gets stuck. Least from my experience testing this.

@Abradley745 Tried that on my game but doesn't seem to fix the issue. I found that rebuying the TV fixes it for ONE movie. After that it breaks again and it's back to indefinite movie watching.

I also have this issue. My sim watched a movie and I wondered why the progress bar is still at the beginning and then I realized that she watched the same film over and over and she does not stop until I cancel the interaction.

Pre-update was also a bug, the sim canceled watching the movie before the end, but now she just watches the same movie over and over.

@Abradley745 My sims watched movies fine before the patch and now it never finishes not matter what I do. Also it keeps coming up too autonomously! I'm about to delete my TV!
