G4TW Sims 3 won't load with G4TW Store collection. Empty G4TW Sims 3 won't load with G4TW Store collection.

I downloaded The Sims 3 and all EP/SP from here. I also downloaded the Store collection.

I installed TS3 (+ all EPs/SPs) with all the details indicated in the readmes and also with the Ultimate fix posted here in the forums.

My TS3 game runs fine. It loads, I can use the launcher, I can play.

The issue is with the The Store collection. As soon as I installed the Sims3pack for the worlds (I don't think this is the problem) and put the folders (DCBackup, etc) in the My Documents folder the trouble started.

While the game seemingly launches well (I can't skip the intro video, however, showing there is some problem),  the game gets stuck, forever in a loop at the 99% of any of the worlds loading screens.

I think everyone knows that this is a problem of an "outdated" mod but the only thing I have is what I have described above. The Sims 3 plus all the EPs & SPs and the Store collection downloaded from here. I don't have any other third party custom content installed.

I did not install the final Sims 3 patch, 1.69. But instead opted for the 1.67 that G4TW recommends.

Could anyone shine a light on this situation? It's been quite a while since I had to reinstall TS3 and this is quite puzzling - does the Store collection from here works for everyone and just not for me?

I'm sure that as soon as I take out any of the Store folders (DCBackup, Library, Mods, or Downloads - Mods and DCBackup most likely imo) the problem will be gone - but what is the fix for this issue?

Thank you very much and sorry for so much text.

Did you also apply the latest ccmerged (August 10th 2014)
Extract with Winrar and place in the folder Mods\Overrides.
Also DELETE existing CCmerged from the folder DCBackup and place a copy of the latest CCMerged. (So don't overwrite)

Did you apply the Last Fix (July 2014)
Extract with Winrar and place in Mods\Packages.

Hello and welcome to the Forum @babysweet,

The store collection works fine for me. Please try deleting the scriptcache.package file under Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3, and also try disabling interactive loading screens from the game options.

Other than that...so does the store fix definitely cause the problem for you, or not?

Those fixes are included in G4TW's store fixes already, and you can actually overwrite the existing ccmerged.package, and replace it with the new one.
