Have you tried 'repair game', before launching the game right click on the little 'cog' > repair game. Also, there's debug by clicking on the sim?
Do you have any mods or cc in your game, (if so, remove them and see if the issue remains).
Hope this helps,
nb: If this solves your question, please mark the reply as having been the solution, so as to help others with a similar problem in the future.
I have no connection to EA
If you by cheats mean Mods then remove all Mods/CC and try the game without. If that helps you can start adding them back a little at a time while testing the game. Do this until you have found all that are broken.
Are you still having issues with your game & have you checked the suggestions?
