Running Vista 64 on one computer & Xp on the other, both With World Adventures on drive C: patched with V 1.8.23 or some such?
file ran fine in a sub folder on both computers with an exception of telling me i had no framework for WA on the vista machine, it tells me i have no corrupt files but i have installed
I have all of a sudden experienced two bugs since installing these mods two days ago, the Dashboard tool is not picking up neither bug.
one being an invisible Repoman who does not leave the lot telling me when i close down the game that he is still taking my items, the other bug is all my veggies growing or fridge stocked with fruits and veggies have now disappeared along with what is in my Sims inventory.
the NoRepomanHack most likely is outdated? dunno? but shouldnt it still have picked it up? besides one of the other packages having a glitch?
Of course i have other files in like Hysterical's skintones and her no Custard face replacer and i can see all the barbies No-No's.
So I just ran the file and I am so surprised at how many blue lot corrupt files came up!! Not surprised because my game had become so slow in load time, wouldn't save and I haven't played in several days because it took me almost 2 hours for my game to load the last time I played! I also found like 25 Sims2 objects!!! That almost surprised me until I checked the dates and found most to be early on when the game was first released. Things weren't so tidy on some sites. All of Fresh Prince vehicles and I knew that I had a corrupt painting but almost every painting came up corrupt blue lot. I knew I had a bad picture because when I would try to click on a pic when decorating my game would crash. So now I need to find the blue lot fixer and run that and then run this file again!! Whew!!! Thanks Delphy for much that you do!!
*off to look for blue lot fixer*
I just used this and it found several files that came up as Corrupt (Blue Lot), but what's strange is I use most of the objects regularly and I've never had the blue lot problem. I'll run them through the blue lot fixer just in case, though.
What I'm wondering about, though, is why did it pick up a hair file as a Corrupt (Blue Lot) file? I thought only certain objects caused it and it had to do with which object it was cloned from. So hair having this issue doesn't make much sense. The hair it's showing is the first male one from here. Does the Blue Lot Object Fixer even fix hair?
ShortyBoo I have ton's of Rose hairs that come up blue lot and was surprised. Even so I am going to run the blue lot fixer because some of that hair I use. I've not really experienced a huge blue lot problem only on a couple of game plays but it shows me how much was going on to make my game almost unplayable.
HI, I am also getting the "corrupt file (blue lot)" with quite a few things that I am pretty sure aren't corrupt, like doors, windows and even cars. while I know these things work, I will continue to monitor them.
Thank you! With this tool I was able to identify a few files that hadn't previously caused blue lots but I know must have been causing slow down in the game, so I ran them through the blue lot fixer and the difference in my game is incredible. It was especially noticeable when trying to save and that time has significantly decreased.
I'd like to be able change where it's checking files, if that's possible. I've been compressing my .packages into a few big .packages, so I keep back ups of the individual files in a different place than the Sims directory.
So far this program is awesome! Thanx Delphy!! We love you!
thanks-thanks-thanks! I adore things you create!
there is only one error I found - on my computer "clear all" button causes program crash anyway, it's not difficult to delete cache files one by one.
I don't know what I did wrong. I used jzip to unrar the package and double clicked on the .exe file. I get a message right away that there was a problem with the program and it had to be shut down. I have a vista 64.
I had the same problem, it does the same thing that the multi installer program does too. I restarted it and it worked for me.
Hey Missa, that error you are getting incase you havent figured out yet, your supposed to put it in your computer/program files/electronic arts/the sims 3(or sims 3 world adventures)/game/bin. it didnt get any errors after i placed those file in there.
Does this program also substitute for the Process Monitor, or will you still need to weed out the repeatedly loading packages? And will this also fix the corrupter blue lot packages like BLOF or merely identify them?
Yes, I'm answering for Delphy here, but meh, he's sitting right beside me, he can smack me if he's bothered by it. :P
Claeric - It doesn't detect ALL issues, just two specific ones (files cloned with S3OC that can cause the blue lot issue, and Sims 2 files). It's not a "detect everything that might possibly be wrong with everything" tool. There may still be other stuff going on. This doesn't do anything for world files - just stuff in Mods\Packages.
Martine - Evidence seems to point to the same file wonkyness that caused the Blue Lots thing causing the inexplicable slowdown with some TS3 content - but it's not 100% for sure yet, so... sort of? IMO, I'd still go ahead and periodically use Process Monitor just to be sure, since this only detects two specific issues that might cause the game to get hung up. There could still be other issues that arise in files that this won't detect, but that the game won't like. This will allow you to disable the problem files but won't fix them (yet - that's probably a good feature idea though, to add the blue lot fixer code to this). Though the TS2 content should really just be deleted, and can't be "fixed".
