So basically the Plumbeous Lot did not load into my reinstalled game despite working with it and having all the required CC.
LUCKILY I had saved each Sim in my saved sims folder individually in case this might have happened, including Igor. (R.I.P)
So I created them in CAS after putting them in Neverglade (And upgrading it a bit)
I rebuilt the house to perfection based on photos of the house I had. Changing some things here and there because I felt like making the layout different. Still 4 rooms though.
I plopped them in with Charon/Griselda/and a bunch of other randomized Sims with strange names I made up. And a few of my previously created Sims. Was going to add more but I was more interested in seeing if I had fixed the crash.
I played it... Crashed at 9AM
I took out CC and my NRAAS mods.
Played it again...Crashed at 9AM
I redid my DEP settings/Refreshed
I tried playing window mode on minimum graphics
Re Updated my NRAAS mods and put them in though I knew it was pointless.
Updated NDIVIA driver - again.
Kept Crashing. Except this time it played past 9AM crashed around 3 or 4PM when I aged up Igor and he died. Grim did not appear.
WHAT DOES THAT MEAN?
Still got the same exact crash log though.
(Repeat this process 2 or 10 more times. Include re installing and uninstalling and waiting for 4 origin downloads in 6 of those times. And a completely clean computer sweep twice. And more crying, a lot more.)
It did this before I even updated to the latest patch (beginning of the week), in fact, that is why I upgraded to the patch...it was to see if it would fix this crashing.
I've never, ever, ever, ever had this problem before. I really don't get it. I'm totally stumped. My fiance is mad at me because I can't pull myself away from the computer. I just can't think about anything but how to fix this. I'm basically an expert at this program and its inner workings and I can't even solve this problem.
I read on the sims forums that a person who is experiencing a different crash than me was told to download this super patch. So I'm going to try that. But I don't really know what it is going to do because the forum it was on didn't look updated.
So we'll try that.
NOPE already had it installed with the regular patch. There is no need for it.
I'm so freaking frustrated. I just wish someone would be magical and just wave something to fix it for me.
I told my boyfriend,
"Seriously, if we install these games on your computer and they work. I will stab myself in the heart with a butter knife."
I think my dramatic phrasing is well deserved considering the week I've spent fighting this hopeless battle against this freaking computer game.
I played again without any CC, minimum graphic, etc, etc. Froze and died almost immediately.
Said DEP stopped me from playing.
I have all the sims exes added to the exception list EXCEPT for Ambitions (TS3EP02.exe). Because it isn't in its file AT ALL. I noticed it wasn't there before and after my many uninstall/reinstall attempts but I didn't think any thing of it. It is completely gone. I suppose I could copy it over from its CD but I don't have a CD, it was a digital download from Origin/EADM. And that might be the reason why I'm crashing...because I have Ambitions...but I don't...anymore.
WHAT THE HELL?
