View Full Version : in live mode game randomly freezes then crashes for no reason
18th Aug 2006, 11:20 AM
I know your gonna tell me this has been answered, and im sorry if you do, but all i found was help if it was crsahing in buy/build mode. My game crashes in live mode.
It happens only on a lot & at random times. Once it crashed almost as soon as i started playing a family, and another time after i had been playing for hours.
Can someone please help me? Its not fun playing sims wondering when your game will crash next :(

What happens when it crashes. Does it go to your desktop, completely reboot, BSOD?

no, the program feezes, then the screen erases from the top down to reveal my desktop. :/

Are you getting any error message?
Have you updated your graphic/video card driver?
Have you used disk clean up and disk defragmenter lately?
Just a few things......

no messages, just randomly crashes. but- my sister was playing today and said she got a message, but the only message she got said "application has crashed"

yeah, i know what youre talking about. my game has done that a couple of times to me too. i noticed it was doing it to me when i was using huge global mods or severly hacked objects, and sometimes it just does it on its own. it lessened when i deleted some of my custom content tho

maybe, i have ALOT of custom content, like over 3,000 files.

yeah, im no expert or anything, but theres probably a couple of files in there that over-do it.

First, start my moving the Downloads folder to your desktop. If you don't want to worry about screwing up one of your families, create a family just to test the game with. Also, please take a look at this (http://www.modthesims2.com/article.php?t=139718) FAQ.
