Oh, boy! I tried booting up TS2 a few days ago only to be greeted with this "lack of memory" issue. Will definitely give this a read later to hopefully fix it.

Free memory: 2048MB
Mon pc fait 4 Go est non 2048

My game still crashes and I've done everything! I've done the 4GB. I did the memory allocation. It STILL crashes after I've made a new family. On the new family loading screen after CAS, it crashes. It's REALLY annoying. I don't know what else I can do! When my game crashes and I check the task manager it says MEMORY COMPLETELY USED UP. Wtf????

Hello, I am during installation, and one of my antiviruses(A have two) found a trojan, and I am not sure if I should continue it?
I was in a step where I put 4GB patch over Sims2EP9, and it told me that this TR was moved into quarantine (like we all, heh)
It's called TR/Crypt.XPACK.Gen3
And here's my security's notes about it: https://www.avira.com/en/support-th...ry/2710?track=1
I had this patch few years ago, but I uninstall TS2 with all mods etc. and now I reinstall it and this appeared and I feel insecure, but I really want to play TS2, and now I am stuck.
I don't really feel like virusing my laptop, and I don't want to risk.

Sorry if that's the wrong place to ask - but if you already did everything there is about the pink flashing and crashing (including the things mentioned in this thread), what other options are there if your game still crashes?

I can play for hours without problems if I don't use CC at all or just very little. But I love playing with custom outfits and objects etc. Is there really anything like too much CC? I just have so many great items but I can't use any of them without constant crashing (every 20 minutes and on most community lots).

What amount of CC is too much depends on what your system can handle. In addition to this, Apple computers have a file limit (I don't have an Apple, so I'm not familiar with the details.)
http://simswiki.info/wiki.php?title...stom_Content%3F

If your game only crashes when you put CC in your game, you may have some bad CC and will probably have to do a 50/50 search to weed it out.

Thanks!
My computer should have no problems but it still crashes quite often.

Did the 50/50 method already and that didn't help. The game crashes no matter what CC I have, it just does it more often if it's the whole folder and not at all if I remove every download. But I can't figure out what CC could be bad, either every single file is corrupted or the problem is somewhere else.

It's just sad, I love the sims 2 so much but there is apparently no way to play it with custom content without any issues

So I also have this problem after trying litteraly everything! My problem is that the 4gb patch won't apply. After I do that my memory is going down to 1024 and it just sucks that the game is always crashing after a really short amount of time. I have a lot of cc, but this is not a big problem, because I used to have constant crashings since I installed it. My Computer is a Lenovo with Windows 10 and an intel graphics card. I do not know more, cause these things aren't really my cup of tea. I really tried every method out there to stop the crashings and only got rid of the pink flashings etc. The only thing not working is still the 4gb patch, so that is actually my last hope.

This is my config-log, oh and I don't have the UC, I have all expansion packs and all stuff packs, except mansion and garden, H&M and Kitchen and Bath.
If someone could help me please let me know.
This game means so much to me and I would love to play it with less crashes.

Make sure you don't run the game in compatibility mode with older systems if you want to use 4 GB patch. (to see that, right click on an icon with which you start the game, then choose "properties", then choose compatibility tab and see if you have checked option "compatibilty mode".

Thanks for the tip but it only changed it up to 2048 instead 0f 4096, so I think it still did not work. If you know any other solution, please let me know.

Do you have the computer specs for it? If you don't have enough RAM it can't draw on it, you need 2GB free to run your pc.

Try Window mode. Right-click your desktop shortcut go to properties target window. Go to the end of the text which should say the path you instaled it to. Do a gap then type in -w click apply.

If the patch refuses to run or properly save changes on the exe file while the file is in Program Files, try copying the file to your desktop and run the fix there, before you move and replace the file back into place. Sometimes the write protection (or whatever it is) in Windows can get a bit frustrating in the Program Files areas, but this trick can help if nothing else works.

Same with the Graphic Rules & Video Cards files.

Hello,

the patch does not apply I don't know how to do it too, I have 4096 but at the bottom I have 2800 or less sometimes and not 4096 on the 2 how to do?
I still haven't found the solution to my problem, I can't get 4096, the memory often drops

basically the memory changes all the time but it does not stay fixed
thank you

#324 Old 3rd Sep 2020 at 7:46 PM
Have you run the Graphic Rules fixes, too? Could be your game isn't properly reading the graphic card/chip, and doesn't mange to balance the memory.

How much RAM do you have? You need 6 or more for the 4GB patch to properly work, at least if you have Windows 7 or above, because the newer Windows versions can easily use 2 GB RAM just for the OS, leaving very little for the game.

#325 Old 4th Sep 2020 at 2:09 PM
when turning on the game, I went to 2292 in memory in the file
I managed to make it work with the 4go patch, I had 4096 the other day but not anymore, I have 8 GB in my pc so I don't think any worries if the other day it worked!
if you are talking about Graph Maker i did this

it no longer works because 'I had to change the game;, hum


I put the Exe back in TSBIN and graph maker found it
