This user has the following games installed:

Sims 3, World Adventures, Ambitions, Late Night, Generations, Pets, Showtime, Supernatural, Seasons, University Life, Island Paradise, Into the Future
Default Sims 3 Settings Always Revert
Uh, not sure how this happened? Currently playing TS3 and noticed edge scroll feature is on, aging is disabled and the time has switched to 24 hours, went ahead to settings to change this however edge scrolling is still on even though it is disabled in settings. The time and age goes back to normal but the game does not show the boxes ticked in the settings. I will link a video. https://imgur.com/VnS14C9

check the options.ini file and make sure it is not read only.

Did this problem reoccur after quitting and restarting?

Also, check the options.ini file and check the "date" of it, to see if it was actually updated after you save the settings down. And also checked the actual setting inside such as "aging" if it is off or on. If there are no changes to the options.ini, it means somehow it is not saving it.

This might be a CC issue or your installation is corrupt.

I'm having this problem too! Thought it was my Origin download, but it looks like because my cloud service isn't linked up to the My Documents folder, options.ini isn't updating. Is there any way to create a new local options.ini file?

you can just edit the file with notepad. however, i wonder if it is reading it at all.

Nope, can't even open it - says 'the cloud file provider is not running'. Trouble is, if I activate OneDrive it'll immediately flood with my local files and won't even update it.

quoting Spaceballs, "Even in the future nothing works!"

call me oldschool, but I don't do cloud server or one drive, etc.... and I don't do origin and online installations. I like my games on DVDs and I don't bother with all these new tech that's suppose to make our lives more convenient.

would just like to say i have fixed the game issue.. somehow? reinstalled the whole game but dragged my ts3 folder in documents to my desktop to save all my saves and custom content (i looked for any custom content that could've caused it and had no luck, but now that i've reinstalled the game it's like everything is back to normal) thank you for helping nitromon<3
