(MAC) Sims 4 crashes randomly
[ Edited ]
★★ Novice


I experience some weird issue on my game. I start the Sims 4, load my house/sim, with no lag at all. I can play a little while without even a lag, and then, randomly (It can be 5 minute of game, or less, or 4 hours later), an error message appears on my screen saying that "vmmap needs to take control of another process for debugging to continue. Enter your password".


So when I enter it, my game whether crashes, or stay on my screen, continuing to play (the water is moving normally, so are the trees or whatever object has an action, but my Sim is kinda stuck and stops her activity). And so I have to make it crash by myself, by turning my computer off manually.


Or when I cancel and refuse to enter my password, another message of error comes right away "Developer Tools Access needs to take control of another process for debugging to continue. Enter your password."
And it's always the same. It is supposed to "debugg" but instead it makes my game crashing for no reason, considering that my mac is not doing any effort and is not hot/warm (you know what I mean, I don't know how to say it in English, sorry).


Plus, I don't run anything else than Sims 4 to avoid bugging. I also tried running it without internet. Same.

Also my mac specs are not that bad, and I think I have enough memory RAM...



Here are my specs:


MacBook 13" (End 2009)

Processor: 2,26 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo

Memory: 6 Go 1333 MHz DDR3

Graphics: NVIDIA GeForce 9400M 256 Mo


I've heard of some patches made by EA Games, but I've never found them.
Does someone have had the same issue and find a solution please ? Thank you <3
