HELP! GAME WONT WORK! >_<

★★★★ Novice

As of a few days ago, my Sims suddenly WILL NOT WORK. It loads the first time to the Household screen. Then I pick a household, and it literally WILL NOT LOAD. It gets most of the way there and STOPS. Ive waited 2 hours before, before using task manager to close it. I am NOT getting black screens or anything. Ive tried removing Custom Content and mods, Ive tried restarting my computer, Ive even tried doing a factory reset. Ive misplaced my box of sims games since we moved, and whileas I know I can redownload them through origin (I think), I REALLY want to keep that as a last ditch effort. But Im becoming desperate. I REALLY MISS SIMS! :womansad: Help! PLEASE.

Hello!

 

First of all try to check your Sims3 game is upto date or not. You can try this here:- Sims 3 updated.

If not then you will need to update your game.

Also try clean boot your PC.

Did you  rename the user folder or did you reset your computer to factory settings ?

 

You don't need to reinstall your game for a game factory reset.

The launcher says my game is up to date. Also, I did the factory reset properly, by renaming The Sims 3 folder to The Sims 3 Old, and doing everything along those lines. Thank you for replying so quickly. Please keep giving me ideas. Frown

What does your launcher say ? If you check the file of the expasion, it will give you the version of the expansion.

 

You have to check the file in the base game folder for the base game version.

I get the "Unable to connect to origin" message, if that helps. 

 

I have the following mods by Nraas: Woohooer, Sleep Freedom, Relativity, NoCD, and Mover.

 

Id recently gotten the Naked mods or whatever, but I got rid of them in case that caused the glitch. It didnt help.

None of my saves are corrupt.

Did you make sure those mods match your patch level ?

 

Does it load when you remove them ?
