My Game Hates Me

Filed under: Announcements — Mao @ 2:02 pm

Unfortunately, it seems that TS2 has decided it hates me, at least on this installation.  I was randomly (maybe once out of twenty play cycles) getting Application Crashes ever since I installed Mansions and Garden Stuff.  Now, unfortunately, I’m getting them several times during play… which is so annoying.  I obviously need to go through my CC/Hacks and see what I managed to futz up.  Unfortunately, I have neither the patience or really, the time.  When I go to play a game, it’s because I have a window of opportunity.

I’m hoping I can sit down and get to the heart of the problem before I leave for quite a bit in July to get married/etc.  It’s frustrating because I at least wanted to have this round finished before I have to take my break!  Worst comes to worst, I’ll just save ridiculously often and push through.

I’m not done with Boreal Springs and certainly not done with TS2.  At all.  So don’t worry!  I will fix the problem (this is NOT the first time it’s happened to BS, unfortunately, sigh) and everything will be back and ready to go.  Until then, things will be intermittent and remember, I will be gone for the first part of July and I’m getting married, so important stuff > sims, unfortunately.

I’ll try to get some updates done here.  I definitely want to finish the dang round!  But if you’re looking for more consistent updates, you can check out my attempt to play multiple houses in The Sims 3 over at Different Views.  Currently, it’s like driving sporks through my eyes, but JM’s Awesomemod helps.  You can also check out fiance’s TS3 fun here.  Yes, he actually plays The Sims and doesn’t just light people on fire.  It’s like having my own Pescado, only sans programming knowledge and beard.

Until then, keep an eye out for updates.  I have a kitten demanding attention and relatives to call, sigh.  (time = precious… who needs kids when you have a cat menagerie?!)

ETA – Don’t mind the mess, currently changing the layout.


  1. You know I have been getting random crashing since installing M&G too. I made sure to have all my hacks updated, but something is causing the crashing.

    I took out the hacks that I though was causing it, but it wasn’t them. So I think, like you, I need to take them all out and them in one by one. Which I really don’t want to do. *sigh* Hopefully we’ll both get our games fixed once again. This is my first time of this ever happening.

    When your game crashes are you doing anything special?

    I noticed that it mainly does the crashing when my sims go to make a phone call to another sim, or when I’m sorting through their clothes to either change them or when they are shopping for new ones.

    I’ve been a little too frustrated/distracted to isolate it, but it seems to occur during carpools. Like when the carpool comes or leaves. It always seems to crash when someone is going or coming home from work. Which really puzzles me, as I use NO career hacks, period. Will have to sift through and find the culprit! If you’re having issues with clothes, experience has taught me that it’s usually a corrupted mesh. I HATE when that happens. When my game crashes now, I get the application crash pop up, ‘This Application has crashed and will now terminate.’ Sigh!

  2. Oh, that sucks, Mao! It’s so tedious going through hacks and other CC and it’s unfortunate we don’t have a better way of weeding out problem files. :\

    Indeed. x_x Going to need a day chalk full of patience for that one, LOL! Certainly not the next few days… relay, alterations, blegh.

  3. Awwww. I’m sorry you’re having problems with your game.

    Enjoy your wedding!

    LOL, I’ll try. ;) Still toiling through hacks/CC to see what’s wrong.

  4. ‘This Application has crashed and will now terminate.’ Is the same thing that I’m getting. So it’s most likely a mesh? OMG. This sucks, since I do have the clothing in seprate folders ( women, men, elder women, etc.) but I tossed the meshes in with the clothing. Crap. Oh well, I better get searching. lol *sigh* Not fun!

    I hope you find your problem soon. Crashing sucks.

  5. Sometimes, it depends on what it does when it crashes. It could also be an old hack or conflicting hacks. :( I’m probably dealing with a faulty mesh, I’ve updated all my hacks and I noticed some children clothing meshes are messed up, sigh.
