View Full Version : animations disappeared
31st Mar 2010, 8:23 AM
so when i start a new game, as in my first generations, everything is fine, but a few generations later, as it is now, some animations disappeared.
when i say animations, i mean mostly in WA, like the sparkles that lead you to what you unlocked, the lightning on the ax from china, the lightning or fire from the traps, and the green lines around you when you have the ability to zenport.
they work at first, but eventually they stop appearing. how can i fix this?

Did you just add new CC? or just patched?
What changed, when did this glitch start happening?
If not, sounds like some of the content you have is suppressing the game's effects for WA.
Have you checked that your CC is compatible for WA and the patch version(s) you have?
Have you tried running a new game *without* CC for a few generations to replicate the glitch?
(remember to clear caches/thumbnails and not load any save games!)

nope, didnt install anything new. this also happened last time when i didnt install any CC at all, so im not sure what the problem is here. this also happened before the patch and after.

When you say the glitch occurs after a few generations, do you mean that after x amount of sim time the animations stop and the hood is permanently kaput? Or are you playing several generations in one session, and after say two hours, the animations stop appearing?

after x amount of sim time they stop appearing.

I'm not positive this has anything to do with the problem, but while the game loads, it will give me a message that says "Warning: non-critical core mismatch! A core file not part of awesome mod does not match expected values. This could be a result of a version mismatch or other third-party hack". It then gives me a choice to ignore or quit, i usually press ignore. That might have something to do with it, and it appeared after i downloaded the awesome mod. i think it might be around the time the animations stopped appearing too.

Didn't you just say it also happened without any CC at all?
Please test this *without* CC, like ella already said.
