    It's really annoying if you want to disable a cheat for a few moments then re-enable it, because you have to type the whole thing in again instead of paging up.

    [quote="lzbthnndgls;c-17207558"][quote="CaprianaB;c-17206537"]All I want to do is change my former NPC's mean trait to something more positive so he doesn't keep insulting his new wife. Hope whatever this glitch is gets fixed soon. [/quote]

    Oh, ok, just saw this. Then "testingcheats true" and "cas.fulleditmode" then shift+click your sim and choose "Modify in CAS" Then you should be able to remove the mean trait and put in a different trait you like.[/quote]

    Yep, that's what I've tried doing, vbut over the past week or so, I'm unable to click on the sin I want to change. It worked fine before that. I must have some sort of glitch. Repairing and updating the game didn't work and neither did shutting down my computer and making sure no other programs were running.

    Seems like a waste of time to change the cheat bar when so many other things need attention. We'll just probably get used to it. I always react badly toward change, which is something I'm working on. It's not always a bad idea. I'm ocd builder though, so yeh, don't move things around in my fridge at home either.

    @CaprianaB Have you tried clearing out your Tray folder, your Cache folder, and deleting your localthumbcache file?

    If you have done all that and you're still having the issue, I would just start a new save. You can save your families to the library and put them in a new game with the same skills and interfamily relaitonships and jobs, but all friendships will be gone. I've had to do that once. Took me a few hours to save everything to my library and then place them into a new save and rebuild their houses too. Once I did that, eveyrthing worked fine.

    I don't care. I didn't even know it changed until someone talked about it ;) .

    I did check the cache folder; nothing was there. Not sure about the tray folder. I'm out of town now so will have to wait until I'm back. I did stay a new save with different Sims but can't remember if I tried using the cheat bar.

    Update, cache folder still empty. I moved the files from the tray folder to my desktop, and my current save and other saves have the same issue.

    My cheat bar problems are over! I think the patch corrected it. Hope it also resolved for everyone else with issues.

    It's listed as fixed in the patch notes, so hopefully, it'll work as before again.

    (I am OP) So idk how to close this thread, but this issue was addressed with the recent patch. I am so very grateful to EA for fixing this issue. It bugged me so very much.

    . And I can no longer copy and paste in and out of the cheats bar. It makes cheats take longer and I think that's ridiculous. .

    I just use control C & V. Just as quick as copy and paste.
    Only didn't vote because it makes no difference to me when I do use it.

    New cheat bar
    I play, most often, in speed two, so I was glad to see the pause happen because now my sims don't go do dumb stuff like set the kitchen on fire while I'm typing!

    I never seen my game go dark but it had gone all white before for some reason (nothing to do with cheats even from what I can remember as I don't use them all that much) and had two crashes recently. Once when trying to add a sim to move in and once when adding which sim I wanted to travel and an issue with photography forced me to shut down the game with task manager. These issues just started happening with the past two patches.

    The only cheats I use is the basic ones and nothing really happened with the computer when I add them. Maybe it depends on the cheats used or something? Or to do with a mod? A lot of people seem to have that MCCC mod.

    Can't vote as it all seems the same to me.

    I don't have any cc or mods, yet I had the issue with the cheat bar. I'm just happy it works again.
