    Okay, I wasn't entirely sure. Thank you for clarifying all of that. The game does seem to be running better today. I haven't had it crash yet. I'll post again if it does.

    Just another update. My game hasn't crashed in two days. I'd say the above steps are a good bet if your game is still crashing, although, read @luthienrising 's comments as well.

    Buy the game. Maybe someone will then be interested in helping you. Maybe it'll even work.

    > Has anyone experience crash while saving game? The message said "The Sims 4 had stopped working". Seriously EA have you ever make a game that is actually playable? My Sims 3 is now extremely laggy (especially after Seasons and University), crash most of the time till I gave up playing it.

    I agree..its a very expensive game and it just like burning moneys in the fire of madness(wth am I talking about)However.It crashes because 1st it cant load your sims face when emotion is changed(for example:Focused to Flirty) it will never let you

    save..2nd when you are saving the game suddenly play then a sim spawn..3rd it could not save your game...so when this happen.DO NOT save your game..eventually when your game crash while saving soo many time.Your game will corrupt and you cannot open it.I am serious that really happen

    You admit to pirating the game. No one in this forum can help you with your issues.

    How many flags does it take? I flagged him the other day when he first posted, you flagged him, Im sure luthienrising flagged him.

    He just keeps bumping an old thread with nonsense

    Ok...So the game crashes might be because of you accidentally buy a ** DEBUG ** items.and name.(itemname).(sort) or something that shouldnt be there.so the solution is.Idk.What the solution?

    The game also crashes MAYBE because the sims that spawned at your lot accidentally wear a debug clothes that right after the sim fade in(spawned)your game freeze and crash

    Another thing Extreme lag can also cause crashes

    Also When your sims emotion change rapidly can also cause crash(e.g:Flirty to Very Flirty and Very flirty turn to flirty and turned to happy in just like 3 sec)

    The solutions:Lets say...NO SOLUTION.you have to restart your game over and over and over and over as there is nothing better thing to do!(I am joking of course)Save your lot and make a new game.I always do that and it does work.But after some hours later it started happening again.

    Please dont comment I am embarrassed ...

    You should be embarrassed for stealing the game. No a stolen copy will not function the way a legal copy of the game will an no one will help you. All your doing at this point is spamming this thread.

    Wait again what is this discussion for?
  • phoebebebe13phoebebebe13 Posts: 19,400 Member
    @Nazran123 keep editing your posts trying to remove evidence that you admit pirating the game. If you look at the thread we made copies before you changed your posts. Im sure EA will catch on as to what you are up to.

    It's for helping people with Sims 4 if they own legitimate copies of the game.
