Fix Frozen Load Screen in Sims 3 Ambitions

in Sims 3 Expansions, Sims 3 Gripes, Sims 3 Guides, Sims 3 Technical Stuff, Sims Videos

So I might have gotten Ambitions today but I haven’t played the game for more than five minutes today.

Yeah. That’s right. Five minutes.

The first issue was the eye of my DVD ROM going out so I had to run to Target and get a USB DVD ROM. Like a champ, external drive recognized the game disc and started installing the game.

Everything was good to go until I got to the load screen…and stayed there.

This is what I did to fix the stalled load screen in Sims 3 Ambitions. Hope it works for you guys.

    Thank you very much for this. I uninstalled everything and reinstalled the game and it didn’t work then I realised that the uninstaller never asked if I wanted to get rid of the CC for WA, only for the base game. Once I removed the mods folder from WA it worked fine.

    LIFE SAVER YOU ARE! Got ambitions today load screen wouldn’t even come up. I’d get the opening video and it’d close. Now i’m sitting here going “WHY didn’t I think of that?!” lol Thank you!

    Girl. YOU ROCK! I was having a really crappy week and my husband bought me this game to make me feel better and I couldn’t get it to load. So I did a search and this was the first thing I found and it WORKED. I really love you right now lol!! You are awesome!!!

    Thank you so much. I have an equally massive mods folder because I went on an installing spree of CC one day not realizing that some of it could be compatible. I got rid of the ones that didn’t matter and the game moves super fast! Thanks again!

    Thank you! It turns out it was none of my clothing or hair, but Turnable Core Engine mods…i just removed those and it started up right away even with my old clothing, hair, and accessory files!

    Dealing with major Sims 3 problems………I have it on two computers. On one, it goes crazy. First glitch was, the screen would flash and go black. Second glitch was, it would randomly exit. Third glitch (currently going on) is the loading screen. It’s stuck on a picture of Sunset Valley and the music will randomly play in little pieces, causing sleep
    sleep deprivation. Even when you turn the computer off, it’s still there, just more ghostly. Please help me! I like to consider myself a screen burn-in expert, but this glitch I can’t fix.
