So most of you know I've been working on a lot...the lot itself is complete, but I can't get it furnished because my game won't save the furnishings! I've decorated the living now 4 times, and the bedroom twice, and the bathroom, two of them, once each!

I'm smelling a uninstall/reinstall and it doesn't smell nice! It's been doing this since shortly after I patched my stupid game and I'm am so NOT in the mood to do this again.

This will back my 4th time since owning this game I've had to do this!!

Has anyone else heard of this happening to anyone else since the patch?

Crap!

Oh no CeCe I'm so sorry you're still having problems with your lots...I actually haven't tried building any but at some point today I'll go try it out and let you know if I have any problems....I don't think Brian is having any though.

hi cece. it mite help just by uninstalling the last and reintsalling it. do you have a external harddrive. if so save all of the sims folders on it. so when you uninstall the last game i would delete all of the old saved folders. by reinstalling the last game the folders will rebuild themselfs. once you have reinstalled it. copy all of the info from the folders on the harddrive in to the new ones

when ever i have stuff going on with my game thats what i do. hope this helps:) :)

Wow! Thanks all for your support! I was so frustrated yesterday when I went in game and saw once again the darn house was butt nekked.

Brian you kind of lost me on describing this style of uninstall, could you map it out a little clearer as it sounds not so massive as a complete uninstall?

Once again...huggles to my Cstyles Family!! You guys are just the best! I'm feeling all warm and fuzzy inside now! hiho

*that could be so misinterpreted! Shocked laughing

My game has a sheet that keeps coming over my game. Sometimes half my screen is blocked off in black. EA says it's my video card but it just started and I believe it's another glitch Sad... Called Dell and they updated my drivers and said the game should be supported by the Vcard. Tried to tell me it does't run on windows 7 just XP!!!! Worst CService.

@Ninja Suspect back at ya! Lol!! Yep I have cc on the lot. I'm doing the uninstall right now as I type this. I have my game information uploading to my external hard drive and when that' s complete I will go in and strip the game from my comp!

Ugh...So very tired of this!!

@Snowee...who are you telling?! I don't even bother with EA customer service anymore. They know just about as much about the game as a one eyed dried up booger!! Good thinking on calling Dell. Is everything working properly now...?

No Brian I never got it figured out, I'm going to do a complete uninstall later tonight. I have already saved everything on my external hard drive, I'm just a little sad about having to do this AGAIN. Not looking forward to it, but I really want to get back in game to finish up my house and I really really really need to get some sims up.

@Ninja...I don't know...I'm very cautious now when I download cc...but I could have possibly got something bad and just overlooked it.

I've never owned a game before that I have to do so much to just keep it up and running!! I heard they are already working on a new ep pack...and they have announced Siims4 coming...they never fixed Sims3 and they are talking of the next level?!? Suspect I has a feeling they are not going to fix it.... Suspect

NOTHING is working now!!!!!!!!! My houses have disappeared and the people are standing in the lots waving their hands and stomping (UMMMM guess I would too). My family is still there but the homes and businesses are hit and miss. The film is still coming over the screen and blocking. Maybe I should just uninstall like you cece and start over. This has made me pull out my 4 letter sailor dictionary and use.

The laucher was down and a message was sent so they have to know something is wrong. I just hate to have to uninstall again this is out right DUH!!!!!!!!!!

Cece you said you are going to use your external drive, how do I go about doing that if you don't mind explaining ABC form. Thanks,

Ah oh noes!!! Snowee how horrible!!

Ok...I'm going to do my besties but I'm horrible on explaining in ABC form. I tend to write full page directions in a foreign language!! Here goes...

Plug your external hard drive into your computer

Click on the 'my computer' icon

This will take you to where basic information is stored, you should see either a C, D, E, F drive depending on how many you have used. My external is showing up in the F drive

As long as it's visible it doesn't matter what drive it's in

Click the hard drive link

Any/All information you have already installed should pop up on your screen now

Head back to your computer screen and pull up your EA files (you can minimize this for now if you like or just keep it up)

Click and open up your EA files and scroll either down to each category you want to save or just save the entire game.

*with your problems I'd just save per category instead of the entire game*

I saved my 'saves' and 'savedsims' 'exports' 'packages' 'mods' 'screenshots'...each one I saved separately.

Now there are 2 ways you can do this...either you can save these files to desktop by just pulling them out and placing them on your desktop or

save each file to desktop and then just click each file icon and move it over to your external hard drive...which is open on your desktop

*basically you can copy/paste each file to your external if you find that easier or quicker*

To move mine, it's basically just right clicking and throwing them over to the external

It should show each file as it's being transported to your external drive.

Before you delete the files you have placed on your desktop and begin the uninstall.....check the files in your hard drive to make sure they all moved over completely.

Once you have placed all of your files in your external...checked them...then just click the icon on your bottom bar of your computer and 'safely remove your hardware'

I hope I broke that down fairly ABC'ish...if you need anymore help just scream at meh!!

Done!!!!!!!!! Everything is in place and working now. I've been playing for the past day to see if everything is glitch free, so far so good My old family even came back with the new reinstall but with the glitch so I had to start over with them. This time I put them in Bridgeport ( 2 fams lost in Sunset is enought) in the little house until I can build the Big House to make them really happy with everything. My son bought me the Outdoor Living today so I'll check it out later. Thanks againg Cece for the help.

@Brian...I am NOT going to no bar or club to pick up dudes dude! I wantz no STD's or strangers creeping into my bed or meh!! Suspect laughing

@Snowee...Yayz!!! So very glad you got it worked out!!! Aren't son's just the best!! My son hooks me up on occasion with the game and ep's, I don't like stuff packs so he is free and clear of that chore!! I loves him to bits!! :heart:

I'm sorry you lost families...I thought I had lost ALL of my sims!! But luckily I found I just had mislabeled and folder! shame

My game is up and running, but I haven't tested a save yet on a lot because I have not put a 'old' save back in game yet. I just did enough to test the reinstall!!
