@adukes87.

 

 

!! Look! 

 

I tried several different saves, I restarted my pc, updated my drivers, repaired the game - all to no avail. 

 

Eventually, I left that game alone (to wait for a fix) and started a new one. 

 

That second patch really screwed things up for quite a few people, it seems.

@BansheeHVO I tried all that too with no results. So I moved all computers in my home lot to the household inventory and am playing without them for a while. I guess we are a no computer household until that gets fixed.

I am on a console and when clicking on a computer in any world my games freezes and eventually crashes with the general error code. I have renewed licenses, ps4 and sims are both up to date. It started happening after the June 10th update 1.27 was installed. My main Sims are a Tech Guru and a Detective...very frustrating to have this happening when they both need to do stuff on the computer for their careers.

@ghostlydragonite It only happens to some people. The develops don't care about the small amount of people who are complaining. I might ask for refund on the eco lifestyle.

Honestly, if that is true I will do the same thing. I've been wanting to play sims for over a week now but I have refused because of this bug. I just want to play the game normally D: I really do hope that the devs will do something about this soon.

@thekrazchI do believe EA to be many things, but I don't think, They don't care about this problem. Often Game Companies doesn't share, which problems They're working on currently with daily updates, and it may seem, They don't care for Our specific problem.

 

- But We can help EA or other Troubleshooters by supplying data or a clear description of the problem, like Attaching the config.log from The Sims 4 Documents as requested in an earlier Message, or similar information relevant for solving the Problem at hand.

 

I wanted this Problem to be fixed Yesterday too,, or even that it never existed! - I do understand the Doubt Many Experiences, about the Progress, but I may approach it different.

Re: Unable to click on items to issue commands and time freezes!

Yess every time I attempt to clink on the computer or any playable object nothing happens. It’s absolute ridiculous. It’s been happening since I update Origin yesterday. 

I’m on a macbook. The glitches I’ve been having since the newest patch and Eco Lifestyle have been minimal, but not interacting with the items in order to get stuff done, renders the game useless. 

Also, the game takes about 2 minutes to close but right as it’s about to close, you see the options for the computer pop up 🤦🏾‍♀️ What?!? If I was expecting it I would have tried to get a screenshot
