Sims 4 Error Code: 3. [SOLVED]

Post by Dawnie on Wed 30 Jan 2019, 23:59

Hey everyone,

I couldn't find a thread on this particular problem, so I thought I would just open one. I've been putting in the expansions for Sims 4, and I got up to Laundry Day. While downloading the next expansion I thought I would try the game to see how it was looking. When I launch Sims 4, a pop up says "The game failed to load. Error Code: 3". I'm not sure what went wrong. I have The Sims 4 file in Program Files since I use x64, and I've followed all the Instruction notes that come with each zip file. I just wanted to know if someone knew how to fix this before I keep putting on expansions.

Now, I did just realize that I put My First Pet Stuff in before putting in Laundry Day. Could that possibly cause some issues?

That will cause some problems but not the one you're having now.

Delete those files:
game/bin/codex.cfg
game/bin/core/imageformats/msvcp100.dll
game/bin/core/imageformats/msvcr100.dll
game/bin/core/imageformats/msvcr100d.dll
game/bin/core/msvcp100.dll
game/bin/core/msvcr100.dll
game/bin/core/winhttp.dll
game/bin/orangeemu.dll
game/bin/orangeemu64.dll
game/bin/origins.ini
game/bin/python/deployed.zip
game/bin/rld.dll
game/bin/ts4.par

You should apply Jungle Adventure and then My First Pet Stuff again. At this point it should probably work. Then apply Seasons, Get Famous and Update 1.48.94.1020.

---------------------------------------------------------------------

Option 2 is using my repack. https://www.games4theworld.club/t33925-the-sims-4-alternative-installer-v2-download-only-what-you-need-even-smaller-than-before
Read "what to download" section. First you want to update the game (it will take care of the mess in Game folder too), then you can download and install DLCs you're missing - in any order you want.

It's also much smaller. Seasons + Get Famous + the latest update from my repack weights 6.64GB vs 15.1 from G4TW.

Okay! I deleted those files, and I'm currently going to try applying Jungle Adventure then My First Pet Stuff again. I'm waiting for Get Famous to start seeding, but until then I'll try to apply them in order to see if it helps. If it doesn't, I will definitely look into the repack.
