@suecorn13349  I've moved your post to the Sims 3 PC tech forum.

 

Where in the loading process do you see the error?  What do you mean when you say "faults occur"?  It would help to know exactly what's happening in your game.

It's the screen that comes up after filling in ones email address and password.   When I click the arrow to start the game the message comes up about a script error (error 0) and asks if I wish to continue running scripts.

 

As for the errors that occur they are so diverse and random that it is hard to describe them.

@suecorn13349  Do you mean when you try to sign into the launcher—the initial Sims 3 screen with the big Play button?  If so, don't sign in; it's not necessary.  There have been issues recently with the launcher trying to connect to nonexistent Facebook accounts or something, but the game will play the same regardless of whether you sign in or not.

 

As for the other errors, I really can't help you without more information.  There are just too many different kinds of errors to be able to help without some idea of what's happening in the first place.

@puzzlezaddictHi, I am having the same issues when trying to load the game. When the Launcher opens I instantly get a script error relating to connecting to Facebook. This only just started today and I have not been doing anything differently that I wouldn't normally do. My game still opens but I experience really bad freezing and lagging every couple of seconds and it makes it impossible to play the game! I have tried everything I can find from changing the settings in the game to deleting origin and nothing is working. Do you have any ideas?

@carolinethomsonx  I don't know why this would have started now, or if the Facebook-related error has anything to do with it.  The easiest way to find out though is to play while completely offline, as in, disable your computer's wifi and/or pull the ethernet cable.  If you use Origin, sign in first, then put Origin in offline mode. You won't be able to login to the launcher or at the Main Menu, but the game itself should work exactly the same.  Let me know whether it helps.

There have been a number of Simmers with this problem.  Some have stated as such under a different title including me.
