Game gets stuck at "Save To My Library" window

Post by lkjhgf on Sat 27 Oct 2018, 03:29

I'm stuck here. Clicking the save button doesn't do anything- It doesn't save or close- and the X button doesn't work either. (Neither does pressing ESC.) This is the second time it's done this, and I'm not sure what to do to fix it. I've tried waiting it out, but it's been thirteen minutes.

Try starting the game without mods.

If that doesn't help, run the validator and post the result here.

Running the game without mods fixed the issue. How do I go about seeing what mod is causing it?

Testing the mods one-by-one, and starting up the game each time. Sounds like lame advice, but to my knowledge there really is no quicker/easier way. 

Maybe it's worth emphasizing (though I'm not sure if applicable in your case) that mods and CC are best installed in small batches, instead of happily downloading tons of stuff and putting everything into the game in one go. Again, this is going to be a bit more time-consuming, but imagine just adding one new mod at a time, and then always starting up the game afterwards.

If you notice a problem in the game, you can be almost sure that the mod(s) you inserted "most recently", are causing you problems and should consequently be easier to find.

If anyone else encounters this error, it was a script mod called "UI Cheats Extension." I could've sworn it got updated, but apparently not!

Sometimes playing with mods leaves behind 'traces'...in the form of cache files, which you can try deleting. One of them is the localthumcache.package. You can find the file under Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 4, and it should be deleted regularly.

Another thing is the cachestr-subfolder, under the same location. Delete its contents regularly as well, but don't delete the actual cachestr-subfolder.  Carlos is tha man
