The Sims 3: crashing fix

If you’ve been following my blog you’ll know that sometimes seemingly random diy/fixes posts will pop up.

This is one of them

So I’m kind of obsessed with The Sims.  I had the first generation,  most of The Sims 2, and a few expansions short of The Sims 3. I think I’m going to have to draw the line there though. I’ve put way too much money into my addiction.

So you can imagine my distress when the game started crashing repeatedly to the desktop,  saying it stopped running and Windows would look for a solution.  It would crash mere minutes into playing.

Windows fail! No solution presented itself!

I knew my system was enough,  so that wasn’t it.  I tried deleting my caches and thumbnails, no dice. Compatability mode for Windows 8 and 7 gave no results. I tried to download the crash analyzer and that wouldn’t even run!

But you know what did?  Turning off the Internet and saving every hour.

Yes,  I have gotten back to my addiction-level playing sprees of whole day Sims marathons.  All because I turned off the internet.

I hope others can fix their games and waste days of their lives on this sweet sweet addiction faster than I did.
