I was in CAS got 3 sims all dressed up etc etc etc then went to give them names as you do, but when i went to put them into town it flashed up saying i hadn't named them so i went and renamed each one, but it flashed again and then it froze and I couldnt do anything apart from re-start my computer any suggestions on what it might be?

Is this the first time this has happened? And has it happened since? Can you play normally apart from the CAS crashes if it's happening all the time?

If you look in your sims 3 root folder there will probably be a crash dump file - they end in "xcpt*.txt" and "xcpt*mdmp" - if you have those you could open up the .txt file and copy paste the contents into a reply here or a pm - I only really need the "exception info" section. I can take a look at it for you and see what caused the crash and if there's anything that needs to be done about it.

If your game is running normally and it hasn't happened again then chances are it was just a one off and nothing to worry about. Either that or it's most likely just some icky CC :)

that was the first time but i have noticed that since i installed pets and go into CAS all sims have the same name even when i change them, it doesnt affect gameplay, so what i have been doing is putting them in game with the same name then use the MC to rename them.

I will look in that folder and try and get the info you need. Thanks isla heart spin

Hmmm scratch that's really weird! I've never heard of that happening before. I'll have a dig around and see what I can find on that. I've had tons of glitches since I installed Pets - EA are working on a patch but nobody knows which glitches they'll fix! Aaaargh!

So not really sure about the name glitch - I need to learn more about that haha!
Errors and crashes I can deal with, silly things that EA should have noticed and fixed before letting people have the game I'm not so good with lol!

more love
