dragon valley is a world so the game will play from whatever game it is normally played from which us the supernatural game as that is the newest released installed game that your wife has the same will be true for any store world that is bought and installed , ( monte vista, roaring heights, midnight hollow et al )
BitDeFender if you have that on your system is know to cause an isue with sims3 so most people disable that while playing there are some other antivurus programmes too that can interfere with the game too and also makeing sure nothing isblocking the connection firewall/antivirus
I had this same problem for months and i read that if you're running 8.1 32 bit the max RAM your PC will use is 3.5GB. I upgraded to the 64 bit version and now I'm using all 16GB of RAM and just like that no problems.
1) Open the START MENU
2) Right-click on THIS PC or COMPUTER
3) Select PROPERTIES
Before mine said "16GB RAM (3.49GB usuable)", Now it just says "16GB"
Depending on your graphics settings the game runs optimal at about 3.3GB with spikes up to 4.6GB. Whenever it would spike the game would crash. Now that I'm using all of my RAM the spikes are not a problem.
It Works If You Have Downloaded It From Origin And You Got A PC Download Copy Of The Sims 3 , After It Downloads , And You Want To Play The Game I Suggest That Go To Games , Click On The Sims 3 Cover On Origin , Then After 3 Minutes It Will Work And Open The Launcher. So Dont Worry , It Will Run If You Have Downloaded It On Origin . I Also Have 64-bits
but how though? im driving myself crazy trying to get it to work on my Lenovo win 8
It works PERFECTLY on my lenovo laptop win 8 64 bit just install and play but its SO HOT when in high graphics
You mean how to start in compatibility mode ?
Right click on the icon on your desktop and choose properties. Then go to the compatibility tab
