16  Simmers' Paradise / General Sims 2 Help / Re: Crashing after install on: March 09, 2013, 10:40:45 pm
This just keeps getting better, its still crashing, it is not showing that any of my expansions are installed and it won't read my saved game.  I wonder if the windows update that messed up my resolution has something to do with this.  That will really suck, if thats the case then it will let me play the game but the graphics are going to be really terrible.  My computer is doing some updates, I'll restart and try the game again, if it is still doing the same thing then I'll do the update from last week.  That is the only other issue I can think of.

Edit: Ok, its not crashing, now its just freezing when I try to load any lot, I think to save my sanity at this point, I'm going to back up all my games and just restore the factory settings, hopefully that will work.

I decided to do a system restore, I reinstalled double deluxe, the game started, loaded perfectly and loaded my families.  I don't know what happened or why it did this but restoring worked.  Thank you everyone for all of your help, I really appreciate it.  Smiley

I haven't put the backups in yet, I have 2 more stuff packs and then I'm going to start the game.  Usually when I have issues, its almost always cc related or a corrupted lot.  As soon as I test my game I'll update.  Thanks everyone.

Hi mookie, thanks for your help.  I did that too, I've been doing everything I can think of since this started 2 nights ago.  I'm going to reinstall and patch, hopefully it works.  Thanks. Smiley

So far I was only installing double deluxe, as far as I knew it was already patched.  I didn't install my other eps or sps since the game keeps crashing when I try enter a lot with a family.  I figured something went wrong with that installation and the rest of the games are going to be messed up too.

 I uninstalled avast and maleware bytes just as a test and reinstalled again and its still doing the same thing.  I thought patching the game should fix this problem but what if for arguments sake, I only had double deluxe, I couldn't play the game anyway, it should be installing properly.  I did try at one point installing apartment life and mansions and gardens hoping that would fix this problem but its still doing the same thing.  I don't know what went wrong, everything was fine a few days ago.

 What really baffles me is how I can enter cas and empty houses but not houses with families.  If I didn't have every sims 3 and its expansions and stuff packs and the complete gta collection, I'd just reinstall windows but I'd hate to go through all of that trouble and the problem still persists.  From what I can see, it appears that the crashing is coming from nightlife not being installed, but it should be installing since I have double deluxe.  I can't say if it always did this (although it is unlikely) when I installed all the games when I first bought this computer, I didn't test after each install, I just installed all the games, copied my backups and started the game, everything was fine.  I was hoping a windows update caused this but it didn't, last weekend I had the dreaded 800x600 only resolution issue.  Deleting the update fixed that.

 I also noticed when I installed mansions and gardens and apartment life, the splash screen never changes, it continues to just say the sims 2.  I don't know if that means anything but it does not seem right.  Ok, I just installed sims pet stories, the game runs great, no problems or crashes.  So I can narrow it down to be the game itself and just the game.  I'm going to try and install the games and patch them like you suggested.  I have never patched them before, I always though when it said its checking it was patching, this has never been a problem before but at this point I'll try anything, thank you again for your suggestions, if I still can't get it to work, at least I have pets stories, I'll get my sims fix one way or another lol.

Hi, thank you.  I did a memory test and the results said no problems found.  I removed ad aware and uninstalled double deluxe.  I restarted the computer and reinstalled and its still doing the same thing.  I bought this computer brand new in july and all the games installed fine but I think I only had avast installed since its the only anti virus program I use.  I recently installed adaware but the game is still doing the same thing even after I uninstalled it.  Maybe malware bytes is a problem, I'll uninstall that one too.  Thanks for your help and suggestions.

I did that yesterday, all my drivers are  up to date.  All of my other games are running fine.  It seems the problem is the game is not installing properly, it looks like nightlife is not installing.  This does not make any sense, everything was working fine a few days ago.
23  Simmers' Paradise / General Sims 2 Help / Crashing after install-Solved on: March 09, 2013, 02:43:53 pm
I played my game a few nights ago with no problems.  I started my game thursday night, when I loaded one of my lots the game crashed.  I assumed it was the lot so I deleted it and tried another lot, the game crashed again.  I figured it was probably my cc so I removed my downloads folder and it still crashed.  I then removed my sims 2 folder and let the game generate new files and the crashing continued.  At this point I figured the only option would be a fresh install.  I uninstalled all my games and reinstalled just double deluxe.  I started the game, I noticed the splash screen says the sims 2 and not double deluxe.  Once I load pleasantview, the top menu seems to be missing downtown.  I can load empty houses and I can get into cas but it crashes when I try to load a house with families.  I also noticed that I dont have any cars, its not greyed out, there is no cars icon in my buy catalog.  It seemed to have only installed the base game and celebrations stuff.  I have never had this problem, 3 days ago my game ran fine with no problems.  I thought it was the disc so I installed it on one of my laptops and it installed fine, so my computer is doing something wrong.  All of my sims 3 games are fine as well as my other games, its only sims 2 thats is doing this.  I have uninstalled and reinstalled several times and the same thing keeps happening.  I have not made any changes to my computer.  My computer meets and exceeds the requirements, I don't know what to do.   I also noticed that the game is not generating any cache files in my documents folder either.  I always delete them before I start the game but it does seem right they are not generating for me to delete.   My only other and last resort is to reinstall windows but I don't want to do that since the only issue I'm having is with sims 2.  Any help is greatly appreciated, thank you.
