Breakpoint Crashes – Not a Problem

(If you find yourself reading this because you have an actual breakpoint problem with your game, I hope you fully read this post without getting impatient. I like to talk a lot)

 

Ever since I started playing again I have been experiencing crashes (You can tell the difference between an experienced sims player and a newbie by the kind of effect having a game crash causes on them. lol. Seriously, I’m like “it’s all good”) Anyway, the main reason why I have been having crashes is because of the world I’m playing. Yep. I learned routing problems can cause a crash and there is nothing you can do about it other than prevent routing problems. How? Well, I wasn’t using the Debugenabler and Errortrap mods from nRaas on this particular save and once I put them in the game the crashes stopped happening from a 70% chance to a 5% chance. So that’s one way to stop your routing crashes. — Now, this post on crashes is not to report on routing crashes but I have deviated from the main subject as I always do. Sorry ’bout that.

I was playing perfectly happy this morning, went to work, came back and BOOM, the game crashed. It read like this:

type: BREAKPOINT
address: 0x0058dbf6 “E:\Program Files (x86)\Origin Games\The Sims 3\Game\Bin\TS3W.exe”:0x0001:0x0018cbf6

So knowing google is my friend I naturally did a search for it and found this:

GAME CRASHING (BREAKPOINT)

What’s hilarious (and kinda scary) is that the person with the crashing problem on this site is no other than me. Yep. Your one and only. True story: if you every see a screen name with JADEEYES anywhere or just JADEEYES, well that would be me… 99% of the time. Now, after reading my poor attempt at trying to ask for help and solving the problem I tried playing the game once more, suspecting I had corrupted the ‘save’ file – because let’s face it, if breakpoint meant I have a corrupted installation the game would have been crashing long time ago with this particular problem, like right after doing my reinstall sometime in 2014, so it’s safe to assume that whatever is corrupted happened right before I clicked that beautiful blue arrow symbol on my launcher, and that it is most likely (100% positive) caused by me. It crashed again. Fearing losing all my progress on this generation 2 of Randominovs, I was already about to cry (yeah, wasn’t feeling like an expert then) when I thought of doing something which I have to say I feel so proud because I would’ve never thought of that before. Am I getting smarter? BAH.

Okay, so I right-clicked on the folder The Sims 3 and clicked on ‘restore previous version’, it showed me two late versions of this game from last week; I picked the closest to the present version being one day ago and went with that. The game ran perfect, no crashes. Problem solved. Sure I lost an entire day of gaming (which I had accomplished a lot) But hey! That’s better than losing the entire generation. And now I’m going to sleep because I have spent my gaming time fixing this crash which I provoked myself by deleting the ‘backup’ folder of the save. Yeah I do that… dumb.

P.S. If by any reason restoring previous version of the The Sims 3 folder doesn’t work, or creating a backup folder for a corrupted save folder (which is another thing I could have done) doesn’t work either, and it is in fact a corrupted installation – in which case you would have to uninstall and reinstall the game… sorry buddy – you can read this thread which talks about the same problem and provides another alternative to solving the issue: Sims 3 seasons stops working with additional issues

Happy simming!

DasmX86Dll.dll not found 4.27.13

My game has been crashing every month.

This time though it is not because of High End Loft, although that problem was not solved by patching up. I think in order to solve that problem I will have to do the most dreaded thing of all: uninstall and install. So that I may do all the patching correctly and all, so that if crashes again because of High End Loft I can simply say it is not my game but that stupid SP.

 

Now, to the problem at hand.

I have to say, thinking of fate, the universe, and just plain and simple LIFE, this game hates me and just doesn’t want me to play at all; lets not even mention the legacy folders I have all over the place with the corresponding CC and so on… those folders are messy enough to not even want to deal with them… blah, to fully understand what I just blab about… lets not even go there okay.

So my game crashed because of the file Dasm not found and when running crash-analyzer it explains this is a lack of memory issue.

After two hours of searching for answers, I have come to the conclusion that I need either more RAM ( currently I have 4GB, but this particualr folder has 3GB) or I need to clean my comp of shit I have in it, and rid myself of the obsession of CC.

CC is not YOUR FRIEND!!!!!!!!!!!!! We love it, we want all, everything we see… ALL. But in reality it is not our friend and it will mess our game up one way or the other.

Plus the freaking montevista world takes about half the space you need … pft.

Yeah, needless to say the story will have to wait for a bit more. I was in the process of taking my pictures for the 3rd chapter!! I’ll try my best to get up before the year ends.

 

Sorry my friends,

High End Loft Crash 4.11.13

Yep! It happened once again, the game crashed because of High End Loft. This time around I was able to find out why my game is crashing with High End Loft.

I learned how to read the xcpt file more or less to a level in which I can tell what is causing the problem, but I still cannot tell why. That’s what the crashanalyzer is for ^ ^

Again, it tells me is because a patch is available…. uh, I have my game up to the date!

Turns out I might have skipped a certain patch. I found two simmers talking about a problem similar to this on the forums.

I have no idea how this happened since I patch every time an update comes out, but who knows… at this point anything is possible.

Now all that is left for me is to try and see if it really works by patching the game now. I can’t be sure so I’ll leave this for the morning, when I’m at my best … err, after coffee.

I’ll update on this!

High End Loft Crash 3.23.13

So my game crashed today for the second time in about 4 months or so.

I thought I was free of crashes with the NRaas mods but…

25422848

Yeah, it sucks!

However I do have the crash analyzer from MODS and apparently the two recent times the game has crashed is because of High End Loft Stuff Pack and something or other about a patch update… I have no idea if it is the update never completed for that SP or if it is that the SP is just plain messed up since I have heard getting games from Origin can be a bad idea, but other than HEL I have no problems with my other EPs and SPs.

I uninstalled HEL and re-installed it; went into the game and so far no crashes. However, several months passed between crashes last time so only time will tell with this one.

I wasted an hour of game play  -___-

If you have had crashes because of HEL SP please do tell your experience!

Thank you!
