@ActuallySammy Do you have the actual spinning or other camera issues ?

Macs seem to have other problems currently: https://answers.ea.com/t5/The-Sims-Mac/Current-Issue-Zoom-and-rotate-Trackpad-controls-not-working/m...

Re: Unable to rotate camera bug

★★★ Novice

Hey all, I'm actually on a PC (Windows 10) and having this problem... sort of. I'm using a regular mouse (albeit an MMO mouse with lots of buttons) but whenever I rotate the camera either in CAS or in live mode, it like... goes into overdrive. Gotta go fast and all of that. One tiny centimeter moved on the mouse results in crazy Sim spinning in CAS like they're trying to spin off into space. There is no issue zooming, nor is there an issue using the turn-arrows in CAS. The only mods I'm using that should alter CAS are the more columns/different background, which don't seem to have any relevance on how the camera would work.

 

Plus, it does happen in live mode as well if I try spinning it around my Sim. Centimeter = 4 camera spins lol. I'm using the Sims 4 type camera.

Yeah I'm pretty sure its the spinning camera issue. It doesn't spin as many times as it does with OP but it does spin. I also have the other issue you mentioned.

@Boo_101102 Another Update: I use Reshade (which I never thought would be a problem) but after I tested my game and saw that everything worked, I added back my reshade. When I got back into the game, I started up a new save and the problem was back. So I quickly uninstalled reshade (from the Sims, not my computer), loaded the game back up, and everything was fine. I'm no tech guru, so I can't think of why Reshade would cause the game to act like that. But if anyone is having this same problem and uses Reshade, consider taking it out for a while. Maybe it'll solve your problem. Just thought I should share my experience!

 

 

EDIT (crin)

 

If this doesn't help, try the following

 

  • Turn off Origin-In-Game in Origin
  • Change you mouse sensitivity settings (proven mostly not working)
  • Make sure you have no mod-conflict.

@Boo_101102 I actually wondered if it was Reshade but I was hoping it wasn't. The game is so blahhh without it ;;

I always notice that once Reshade and the game load up, the menu flashes through its animations about a bajillion times on super speed before going back to normal. I always figured this was a "catchup" of sorts because Reshade takes so long to load. So maybe it's something like that with the camera?

I just am not sure how it would be broken now but not before.

@failbender Did you try without and can you confirm the theory ?

It's seems to be connected to the big Windows update (and one Mac :D)

@crinrict Yes, after removing Reshade and repairing the game, both the CAS and live cameras have slowed down to their normal state. It's really a shame, since I'm so used to the vibrant colors Frown

The cameras were fine up until the *Sims* update, so I'm not sure what the recent *Windows* update would have done since that had already happened (at least for me) to no ill effect.

also disappointed cos my game somehow took even LONGER to load than usual. presumably because I used the repair function, but yeesh!
