Did this issue appear after a specific patch or change you made to your system? No

The patch for the error code 0 has been released but it is still happening in my game even though I have updated my game. This is quite annoying because I have played for hours today and my game has not saved any of it. I have bought all of the packs for this game costing me a lot of money and it has been completely unplayable for the past month. First it was the broken wedding pack and now this? Why does my game always seem to be broken?

@MisStkVegetarian Did you try reading all the neighborhood stories ? Any wedding cake ? What platform are you on ?

There could be other causes then the ones they fixed. Do you get it on every save you play ?

Still having Error 0 issue on PS4

★★★ Novice

I saw on Twitter from SimGuruNinja that the issue was resolved April 1, but I first got this issue in the past couple days (April 11). The game does not save properly, giving me an error message “Error 0” and then my save file is deleted. 

 

I have a recent save on my psn cloud, but I also saw in my system storage that my saves appear to all be there, all my most recent saves. So I would like to know how to get those saves back into the game, because they aren’t appearing when I open the game back up. They still appear to be deleted/not there when I select load on the main screen. Yet they’re on my playstation. Anyone know what’s up with that? Would love not to have to start over, I’ve had this file for three years and 12 gens…

Hello @Swag020406 @MisStkVegetarian 

If you're still seeing Error 0 without mods and with an updated game, could you share your save files?

Yesterday I  and my daughter took turns playing. Everything was going good until I made a new character, moved her into  the household being played. All of a sudden any time I tried to save my game it would pop up with the error code Save Code Error: 0. I do not own Wedding Stories (yet, was actually just going to buy it) but I had moved the new character in to be the wedding photographer for a wedding (where a wedding cake was made and consumed). I lost an entire day's worth of content/ builds/ storyline. I tried to "save as" and it did not work. I have tried moving people in and out of households. I am at my wits end considering my game didn't start doing this until AFTER the patch. and it is almost my birthday and as a present  I was going to buy some more game packs and an expansion. This is my first real time getting back into game play in two years due to having babies (my 2 year old has made it nearly impossible and my 10 month old makes it hard), I have been playing Sims since it came out when I was in high school over 20 years ago and am kind of desperate to figure out the issue. Thanks!

@farmerkristyn Console did not get that update until April 4th. Please ensure your console is connected to the internet and that your game and console are fully updated to the latest patches. Version 1.57.2 for the Game and 9.51 or 22.01-5.02 for your console.

 

Check that you have read through all the neighborhood stories by clicking on your sims mailbox and checking the updates. You have to click repeatedly until you get the message there's no new stories.

 

If you've updated your game and clicked through all the stories updates on the mailbox and you are still getting this error, please let me know.

Re: Still having Error 0 issue on PS4

hi, thanks for responding. i do have the latest version of the game. i clicked through all the neighborhood stories and then disabled neighborhood stories but i am still encountering this issue.

 

ive been able to save if i create a new file rather than overwrite, but when i go back into said save, i encounter a new bug where all my sims’ family photos and paintings from reference have all been wiped, with the photos going black and the paintings going white. i dont know if this issue is related to the error 0 issue, but it is happening consistently where i either encounter error 0 or i encounter the blacked out photos in the event that im able to save.
