Game freezes after 5 min playing Empty Game freezes after 5 min playing

Hi everyone! I have just installed Sims 3 and the world adventures and the game freezes about 5 min after starting to play. Game doesn't really crash as in it doesn't shut down or give me an error message. The game just freezes while cursor and windows are still running normally. I have tried to fix everything related to the graphics cards and it doesn't seem to have a problem with it? I put DeviceConfig here just in case. I have limited the fps but that didn't seem to help. While the game actually functions it doesn't seem to have any performance issues even though i put the settings high (I have also tried with really low settings). It just freezes out of the blue. I would be really grateful for any advice!

Welcome to the Forum @omena

There are some general technical tweaks here for you to try out, in case you haven't done so yet:

Also, are you able to pinpoint the freezing of the game to some specific in-game interaction, or does it happen randomnly/after 5 minutes? Because if you were able to match it to some in-game interaction, you could try avoiding it I suppose, even though it may limit the playability of the game.

Good luck for now! Yess, aye lieeke!

Thank you for the suggestion! yes the game freezes totally randomly and always no matter what I do. Because of this I haven't actually been able to play (I don't count the 3 min or so before the game freezes and I can't save). I have done the DEP and 4GB patch but that hasn't helped me so far.
