Sims 3 Keeps Crashing on Create a Sim

★★ Novice

Everytime I'm in create a sim after 10 minutes my game will crash. I have Sims 3, Sims 3 Pets, and Master Suite.

I have tried everything DEP. I have no custom content or mods, I have no saved games, windowed mode doesn't help, I also ran in Windows XP (ServicePack 2) compatibility mode, turned off visual design, turn off desktop-desig, and ran as administrator.

Nothing is helping.

Re: Sims 3 Keeps Crashing on Create a Sim

Hero

If lowering the graphics doesn't help, you can try the factory reset described in this post: http://answers.ea.com/t5/The-Sims-3/FAQ-Troubleshooting-Steps/td-p/714/

 

It might help but your chip IS below specs and if you have most expansions as well, that is probably where your issue lies.

Unless you also have a graphic card in your computer, You're graphic chip is below specs. you need at least 128 MB of dedicated memory, you only have 64 MB


Try lowering your graphic settings and turn off mirror reflections.

 

Also check if there are newer drivers for the card.

Re: Sims 3 Keeps Crashing on Create a Sim

★★ Novice

I lowered all my graphic settings, already checked for new drivers neither worked.  I can play in build/buy mode, but create-a-sim always crashes after 10 minutes it is really frustrating.

Why is it that I have no problems in build/buy mode?

Even without the expansions it still does the same thing. The factory reset did not work.

Re: Sims 3 Keeps Crashing on Create a Sim

CAS is usually very demanding. You can see this in the FPS that go a lot higher in CAS then in buy/build or live mode.

 

Each patch adds new stuff to the game which makes it harder and harder to play with below spec computers, even if you don't add any expansion.

 

The game is inefficiently programed and needs a lot of resources. 

 

Maybe someone else has more suggestions. Sorry I couldn't help.
