I have just started playing Sims 3 - it is so slow and preferred Sims 2 when you could play offline. Can you do this with Sims 3?

Yes, mine can be really slow at times and waiting for my Sim to wake up is annoying (takes too long). Blooming annoying that you cannot go into the community buildings too. Sims 2 seems better just now - hopefully the changes will improve Sims 3.

Switch it from full screen mode to a windowed version. This usually lightens the load on your processor, which can tend to speed things up.

Make sure you exit out of all of your background applications that aren't essential. And, like always, try lowering your graphics. TS3 is much more graphic-intensive than TS2 was, especially with the new town system. Things are constantly happening around you, so when you speed time up, it's not just your household that's going faster, it's the whole town.

Perhaps turning story progression off would help, but I'm not sure about that.

Thanks but that is what I had already done and have lowered the graphics too. Will just have to be patient and wait for EA to correct the glitches.

Re playing offline I understand that the connection is just for downloads etc. but it still slows it down. Grrrrr!
