Graphic Bug

[ Edited ]

Good evening,

I do not know how to describe my bug so here it is in picture :

http://img15.hostingpics.net/pics/423870BUGsims3.png

And that's how it since version 1.29. But here, it's much worse because even the native objects of the game no longer displayed.
To install the addon animals & Co., I had to update the game to version 1.33.
Without this update, the basic game running smoothly.

BUT, with the update ... The basic game contains graphic bug!

I tried, I removed the custom content (rather off), same for the folder "mods" ... but this problem still images that appear strangely ...
By disabling the firewall, the catalyst and the virus problem is still there.

I contacted twice the Help Center EA but no advice has been able to find answer to my problem.

Here is my configuration computer

Today my game is updated in the wrong version



Thank you for any help.
PS : I'am a french gamer

Are your drivers up-to-date ?

 

Only other advice that I have is to delete the cache files: http://sims3.crinrict.com/en/2011/01/faq-delete-your-cache-files.html

 

There's also a folder called thumbnails. Move that to the desktop.

 

If that fails, try the Resetting to factory settings tip described here: http://answers.ea.com/t5/The-Sims-3/Troubleshooting-Steps/m-p/714/message-uid/714#U714

Removed the dot from the link. It should work now.

Suggestions


This problem is usually caused by broken registry references or corrupt user data.

 

There are several things you can try:
