PostSubject: Game taking forever to do anything   Sat Nov 17, 2012 9:32 am

I have had major issues with my game over the past 2 weeks. It takes about 5 mins to start up the game, then 3 hours to load the town and then around 30 mins just to save a game. My game lags and crashes a lot and I am just really fed up with it now! I have done a sims 3 dashboard clean and it hasn't picked up any problems with my mods file. When I remove my mods my game works fine but I don't want to get ride of my mods and cc so I really need your help D: Also before the game starts up it says I have something in my sims 3 files that doesn't go with the version of the game, And freezes before the game starts. I have already had to drop out of two modeling comps because of the time it takes so I just really badly need help

Thanks

Usually, if you get that message before the game starts up, it should be a mod, not like clothes or hair, at least in my experience. You could also have a corrupt/sims 2 file in there. You probably know that, but it's worth checking out.
My game was crashing a lot too, and i was really surprised to find ts2 files in my mods folder. It fixed the problem though.
Oh, and if all else fails, you should just uninstall the games, clean out the registry and reinstall. It worked for me. Hope i helped

If you don't merge your files, it's something you should think of doing as it helps to reduce lag as well.

Sounds like some bad cc somewhere in there. I have that issue about twice in the past and it was always something related to CC

That message sounds like you have an outdated mod to me. The dashboard may not be picking up anything because the mod itself is fine, as in not corrupted, but it may just be outdated and you should be able to find an updated version to install.

Also LE's suggestion to merge your cc files is a really good one, it gets rid of lag, every couple of months I merge all my package files.

I hope you get it figured out I hate when my game isn't working.

Try deleting your cache files too, this helps reduce loading times and small bugs in game.
