I will no longer be watching the comments page after The Sims 4 launches on September 4, 2014.

Translations:
-Deutsch

Summary:
The Sims 3 Crash Log Analyzer (CLA) parses crash logs (xcpt*.txt) in the the Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3 directory. It then attempts to discover what most likely caused the crash which CLA displays under the "Likely Cause" column.

This is a tool to help diagnose crashes. It is not a miracle worker.




System Requirements:
-Microsoft .NET Framework 4.0 Client Profile. Mac OS X is not supported.
-An internet connection is required to get the names of The Sims 3 executables. If you don't have an internet connection, it will ask for a "*.plf" file. Download the current version here and point to it when it requests it.


Usage:
Upon opening CLA, you will see a list of crashes and their likely causes. You can click on the corresponding buttons under solutions for assistance in solving those specific issues. If you are getting a lot of "Unknowns," you may either click on "Export to Text File" which prompts you to save it or click on "Copy BB Code" which copies the data to your clipboard to be pasted in the comments (see below) or the official Sims 3 Forums.

CLA does not delete any logs by default. If you wish to delete the logs, you can do so under the File menu.

Please note that download threads are not for game help and support.

While this program can be helpful in troubleshooting certain issues with your game, download threads are not meant to provide solutions to game problems. Please do not post your crash log stuff here to ask for further help - please use the Help section here at MTS, starting with this: Game Help:Sims 3 Game Problemwiki and following the instructions, each step, in order. This FAQ: Game Help:Sims 3 Crashingwiki can also be helpful. If you continue to have problems even after trying ALL of the steps in the above-linked two FAQs, you can post a new thread in the Help Q&A forums (there's a link at the top of every FAQ) and we will be happy to offer you help for your problems one-on-one. Make sure to include a detailed list of everything you've tried to fix the problem (not just "I've done the FAQs" but a description of the steps you took, in your own words) as well as the summary version of your system specs, using the form you can copy-paste from this page: Game Help:System Specswiki


Unknown Crashes:
If you are getting a lot of unknown crashes, you can use the "Copy to Clipboard" button and paste the results in the comments section.

This information may be used to expand the library of crashes the application can recognize.

Please be aware that is it very unlikely reporting unknown crashes will result in good, immediate advice to fix the crashes. I would recommend looking here for a list of things to try to fix the problem. If you happen to figure out what fixed the crashes you reported previously, please provide an update so that I can perhaps automate the detection of that specific type of crash for people that experience the same problem.

I was actually able to get this working again after decompiling and tweaking the few issues that had it choking. I tried sending a PM to FordGT, but got no response. I'd love to share, but want to make sure I get the thumbs-up first.

Doesn't work. When I run it, it shows in task manager that it's running then it closes by itself.

he left for the sims 4 as he said. I don't think sharing would be bad then, and you would help lots of sims 3 player.

Just share it! It's ford gt's own fault that he's off to work on the crappy sims 4 game. If he wants you to take it down after, then obey. But i can guarantee that he will not notice if you share it because he is too far gone to the dumb side of the sims franchise.

I'll clear it with site mods, first. Hopefully, I'll have something up soon.

So...I'm curious. I got the cause "Incorrect Executable - Expecting ts3w.exe. Got: TS3.exe." I've already disabled DEP, but it's still saying it. Is anyone else having this issue? Did anyone figure out how to fix it? My game crashes ever half hour to hour with this problem.

I tried it on my game as it was crashing after two hours of gameplay and it says there was a game update available, which wasn't true as my game was up to date

I'm just a fan of Ira Losco passing by. Wish one of her songs were in the Sims #OPA
