The same thing happens to me. It played just fine yesterday morning and now, nothing. Launcher works, and it gets to about 89% loaded, then crashes.

Re: Origin Updated, Now Sims 3 won't load

@abc415232430  I split your comment into its own thread because it's easier to keep troubleshooting to one thread per person.


The first thing to try is dragging your entire Sims 3 game folder out of Documents\Electronic Arts and onto your desktop.  Launch the game again and try to load a new save.  Let me know whether it works.


If you can't load the game even in a clean folder, please run a dxdiag and attach the results to a post here.


I don't work for EA. I'm just trying to help fellow players with their games.
