I need Sims help

My Sims Livin Large game continues to freeze everytime I try to play! I have re-installed. I have run scan disk and defragmented several times. I have closed every running windows operation except explorer and systray. I really, really, really want to play and this is driving me crazy!!! Are there any other Sims fans out there with any ideas? I would really appreciate it.


How odd, because my game “The Sims” does the same thing, sort of. Mine just closes at random times.

The Sims and Livin’ Large required a sound card that supports direct sound. I had the freezing problem when I first bought the game; I solved by problem by adding a command to the shortcut which executed the game with no sound. The Sims manual says how to do this. So far, Livin’ Large has only froze once, which was before I updated my sound drivers.

Forgot to mention that I do have sound now.

There’s a forum at this site to answer every question you can think of. :slight_smile:

Have you downloaded any custom skins, objects, or textures? Some of those can make the game crash, I had that problem. There is a program available at thesims.com called FileCop which will find and remove the bad skins, objects, etc.
