PostSubject: The Sims 3 University Bugs And Glitches   11/3/2013, 10:46

Since installing UL, my Sims no longer can marry, have children, or use rabbitholes.
My game crashes when i am in build/buy mode
I cannot move a family in to a lot without the game crashing
My Sim cannot graduate or receive my diploma

Restore back to factory settings does not work
blinking screen, black screen, screwed up graphics, thought it was my graphics card, so nVidia did a diagnostic for me. They said it is the game, my graphics card is fine. Spent $200.00 on another geaphics card i did not need.

I tried a vanilla game on an XP, Windows 7, and Windows 8 computer, all have the same issues.

Some experts and game review sites and magazines are calling University Life the buggiest Sims 3 EP to date.

Anyone else having issues? The Sims 3 forum is flooded with people just like me with the same problems.

Oh my Annie!!! This is terrible!!! Now I'm REALLY glad I've waited to get it! So sorry you've had such a horrible experience.

Yes I know, I have been posting there and no one can figure out my problems either lol

I have been in touch over the phone with EA Customer Service and nVidia Tech Help, both do not know what nor why this is happening to me on all three of my computers.

Each computer has a different OS, XP, Win 7, and Win 8
Each computer has a fresh clean and new install with no CC and no mods, nothing copied over

EA knows they screwed up, now they are scrambling to fix the bugs and glitches, however thank goodness they are aware :)

My three computers are more than sufficient for the Sims 3 games; I am a graphic designer by trade and hobby, so my machines need to take a brutal beating every day lolXD

So sorry to hear this Annie!!!!!! I can only imagine how frustrating that is!!! Especially the coughing up money for things you can't use! angry angry2

I honestly haven't had any problems YET with UL. But I've only been in-game for roughly a few hours and don't have many sims in my game right now. I am definitely going to keep a watchful eye on how it performs!!!!

I do hope they can fix your problems soon!!! cuddle hugs




Anyone can criticize...can YOU inspire? - unknown

Thank you everyone for your amazing help:) it is truly appreciated:)

I am going to update my XP computer to Windows 7 with a new graphics card next week. I will uninstall and reinstall all my games, CC, and mods yet again and hopefully this will solve all issues. I actually shared my screen with EA Tech support to show them exactly what is going on. They could not believe what they were witnessing:(

Ah well..........

Once upon a time there was a company called Electronic Arts. This video game company came up with a brilliant idea to create the greatest EP this side of Sims 3. Some people hailed it to be great while others in the kingdom had nothing nice to add to the conversation. One peasant in the village, Annie Peters decided her fate would be grand and installed this EP.

Behold the awesome and terrible power of this EP! The grips of death was upon Annie!

Her digital download was so corrupt that it ate her graphics card alive. Seriously even Nvidia cannot explain this. This graphics cards software corrupted Annie's system OS files to the point of no return. I am now waiting for my newly purchased desktop computer to arrive in the mail. I am so sorry to everyone on this team. I have no computer but my husbands laptop.

Please forgive my absence and blasphemy while I rebuild my laptop. I am still here and I still very much want to be a part of this team. I will hand in Daria interview article tonight. And try like heck to hand in more advertisements.

Again I truly apologize for EA's poop lol

so so sorry to hear your having a bad time hun. and you have no need to apologize to anyone here hun. you can't help what has happened. it's all down to EA. and i also feel they should be the one buying you a new P.C. as it's their soft wear that has made things come to what they are.

hope you get everything back to normal hun. :) luv u luv u

I am one of the ones who decided to forego installing University. Guess I dodged a bullet.

Thank you everyone for understanding:)
I was really worried that my position here at Simtech was in jeopardy because of my absense:(

I am one of those players too that nothing bad happens when I install a patch, EP, and/or SP.

I am working on the cat article the best i can last night and today. I have been contracted out to help a local business with graphic designing. I will post a link so you all can see:)

Today is also my 4 year anniversary! Very Happy

Jack, and Ina's story however is the best Very Happy

And if anyone does have issues with the new University Life EP, i probably will be able to help now lolXD

@ AnnieOver. you being away from the forum for game related problems is just one of those thing. it happens.

it's not like you just could not be bothered. you had a reason for being away. and we very much respect that things do happen. ie game problems, internet problems, health, something going on in family's. ect ect. everyone at some stage has or will have something going on in real life that will temporarily keep them away from the forum for some reason.

so don't worry yourself about things like that. we are just happy to hear your ok and that you game is being sorted. and that it was not a more serious matter that kept you away from the forum. and i'm more than sure you place in the mag is very much yours to keep for at long as you want it to be yours. :) luv u luv u

Thank all of you for understanding:)

We found the problem, well the final problem on the list lol. EA's minimum requirements for The Sims 3 University Life is 3GB of RAM. EA refused to tell me, and I found out through NRAAS of all places. So now I need a new motherboard. My new computer will not arrive til next month, and if I order a new motherboard, that will not get here until three weeks from now. I am so screwed at this point that I want to just give up:(

The first problem was a bad digital copy
The second problem was Graphics Card
The third problem was System Files
The fourth problem was crashing
The fifth problem was unable to save
The sixth problem was CC and mods
And finally the last problem is memory

Is this not ironic how all of these problems only started after I installed University Life?

I am now crashing to desktop every ten minutes >:(

I have tried DEP, removing mods, CC, vanilla game, new game, and nothing works.

I hope this new computer fixes all these issues, or I am going to have to pack it in with The Sims 3. I just cannot take the stress level of this nonsense:(

My apologies for the late reply:(

I really buried my head in fixing my laptop the past couple of days. I have found almost every download I need to update my game and such to 1.48

I am almost there and so relieved that my laptop is on its way to recovery lol

As for the article, I do not have it as some of my files were deleted in the fiasco when I had to repair windows. I tried System Restore however I could not find my files:(

I do have the email from Darias interview?
