PostSubject: [solved]Can't Play My Family!   Tue Jan 15, 2013 7:25 am

Afternoon my friends. I have an issue and I know I will get some good feedback as to what the problem is from some of you. I have this family that I have played many times before, but when I tried to go play them, I can't access them. My cursor just spins around. I did the Alt Delete, but it says it's running, and sometimes it says it's Not Responding. I've cleared out my caches and all. Restarted my comp. Done everything I can think of, but still can't get to them.

unhappydance

I had this happen once before, with another family. I moved them out of the house only to have to refurnish the house and move them back in. That was a pain. I don't want to have to go thru this all of the time. Never have had this issue before. Do you think it has anything to do with me adding Ep for Fun with Pets?

Oh, and sometimes I see the message prompt, "The Sims SC is Not Responding." What does that mean? I hope my game is not starting to act crazy on me. I've lost to many of my peeps and lots in the past. Just recently I lost everything on my husbands comp. Was never able to reload my game. Now my come is acting crazy. crying

Any suggestions?

aw BB! scratch groan i hate it when these things happen.
I wish i had an answer/ solution for you but that has never happened to me.
Im gonna assume youve checked your CC with cleaninstaller?
could it be the computer itself?
Can you play other families or is it just that one you cant access?

Yeah, I checked those. I can access others, and it has happened with another family, but I had moved them out then back into another house. I thought it was the house, cause I loaded it from TSR, But is a house that I created myself. Like you said, it could be a CC. I checked my clean installer and don't see anything. Nothing popped out at me when I ran it, so not really sure what it could be.

I'll keep trying, and it doesn't work, I'll just move them out and into another house.

BBdoll it sounds like it could possibly be a memory problem. Have you tried closing down some background tasks with the gaming tool I suggested to you? Also keep in mind the more cc you put in your game, the more RAM you are going to need, so if you have a lot of cc in a particular lot, your computer may groan and crash under the strain if you don't have enough memory. Another thing is your computer may need to be defragmented. Fragmented files can make your computer crash. If you've never defragged your computer, now's the time to start. It can a while to do that, so it's best to use a day when your not using your computer to get it done.
As much as I love the Sims2CleanPack installer, it will not automatically sort out any bad/problem cc like most think; it only detects potential problem cc. The only true way to find offending cc is to sort through it until you find it. They have other tools to sort through bad cc, but I can't remember what they are. I did try one of them years ago, but it was not user friendly and yielded no results for me.
Also make sure the drivers for your graphics card is update by going to the graphics card's site and checking there.
But this sounds like it could be a potential memory problem, so try the tips above and maybe it will smooth out the problem.

wowspring Cinda, you know, that is one thing I have forgotten all about. I did a restart today, cuz I did some other stuff, and when it was booting up it said it was performing a Defrag. This is something that I used to always do on my XP, but just downright forgot about it on this one.

I will do as suggested. I always forget about doing the Background stuff as you suggested. I'll keep you posted. Thanks ladies for the tips
