It is a REAL shame because while I was enjoying a nice 20+ hour playthrough (not at once obviously) I just couldn't stand the constant crashes. How every five minutes I'd save my game and hope for the best, or I'd keep my Sims living at home and never let them go out to any community lots because they'd crash, keep my Sims from going to college because somehow University is a game killer as it'll crash so often that you don't even have time to save!
So after all these crashes I decided to go for that 4GB patch that everyone tells you to get because "It's great for the random crashes!" you know what? They're absolutely right, it IS good for the random crashes because my game doesn't crash anymore! But that's because my game doesn't launch anymore instead! Anyone know how to fix this without just completely uninstalling my game? Because like I said, 20+ hours of fun progress right there I'd absolutely dread seeing go to waste.
