    Hi peeps..

    This my fourth day of trying to solve this Sims freezeing problem and I give up today. Finally :) So maybe you guys can help me out.

    I've been trying to play this Sims 3 game.. It took me 2 days to succesfully install the game and it's cracks. I made everything right and the game finally started.. But I didnt know that thing are gonna get much more complicated..

    Well, here's the problem: When I open the game everything looks great infact when I try to move a family to a home and start to play, the screen freezes and I can not even force quit.. I'm gonna write down the things that I tried according to other people's advices.. I saw these solutions on internet forums and pretty much everybody made it but me..

    1-I deleted all things named or marked 'sims' in folders 'USERS-LIBRARY-PREFERENCES'
    2-I turned off the internet connection, uninstalled the game and reinstall without updates.
    3-I changed the graphic options like low to medium or medium to low and i tried every screen resolutions...
    4-I downloaded the SIMS 3 RELOADED version and some other versions. I individually installed them, and tried if one of the maybe gonna work but none of the actually worked at all.. I just wanna know if Sims 3 works with my laptop.. If not please somebody tell me so I can stop trying things and sleep peacefully..I would be appreciate if someone tell me something about this madness... Thank you...

    I can help you out real quick with this one:

    It's not your macbook, it's the Sims that sucks. The base engine that the game runs on is incredibly bad, and will cause lag in game after a while, no matter what. I don't know if you're into mods, but if you're willing to, check out NRAAS Industries, by Twallan. He has a bunch of mods that will help you optimize the game, like Storyprogression, Errortrap, Mastercontroller and overwatch. If you put those in your game I promise you it will clean up your game so much it might just run smoothly again. (ish, since the base engine still sucks and you can only do so much before it's hopeless)

    This is his website : http://nraas.wikispaces.com/

    Edit: I can't read, but this looks like a different error. try everything this page says: http://simswiki.info/wiki.php?title=Game_Help:Sims_3_Game_Problem

    Good luck, I know how frustrating it can be.

    awesome, good job. :)

    You should edit your first post and put the prefix "solved" in front of your topic (dropdown menu) so others know this is not an issue anymore. :)
