I have had Sims 3 on my computer for about 4 months now. It was installed properly and I haven't had any trouble until now. Evertime I press play or anything on the welcome screen it freezes. I wait and then about 6 minutes later it tells me sims isn't responding. I have restarted my laptop and taken the game out and put it pack in. Why isn't it working like it should? What is the solution?
I had the same problem, after several attempts of not responding I had an additional message 'unable to link to Origin' so I uninstalled Origin. Game launcher works fine now. Hope this works for you too.
My launcher has stopped working as well, it happened today, And i can not buy sim points and everytime i leave the site i get logged out and then take a million years to log back it again. Has someone reported this serious issue to EA games?
