Poll results and a little rambling

Heya. I still am leaving my poll open. Sims 3 got 13 votes and Sims 2 - 11 votes

Thing now is I am going to take a little break from TS3. I do not want to destroy my computer just because of the hardware errors I am encountering from the game or at least have sorted this out. So it will take me a while to post Sims 3 screens. :/ I wish that  TS3 do not have this bugs. To be honest I never encountered hardware problems like this with my TS2. I have a high-end gaming PC in which TS2, TS3, and my other games - Crysis, Tomb Raider, Second Life and Lost Planet are installed. I am really disappointed that I can run my Sims 2 games [All EP and SP plus big, big game modifications] plus almost 16GB of CC's as well as all my other games with no problem at all. [that includes another EA game -- Crysis but with TS3?] :(I really don't want to think its complete waste of my money. But is it?

The gaming tower was built especially for TS3. More than enough than the actual TS3 game requires. Has Quad Core Processors, ginormous RAM, 750GB hardrive, 9800GTX graphics and all the fancy stuff. All drivers updated, scanning viruses and spamwares everyday... For every CC I install in TS3, I play my game and test for about 1 hour max. Even double checking all downloaded CC's [scanning for virus and such]. While working on my video I started to get BSOD. I haven't encountered BSOD's until I started to play with a newly created family for the video. My Sim family actors, they are 5 in the household. One Mom, 2 daughters (children), one father and one son. None of them are using custom content even in their houses when I'm not filming. Prolly thinking it's the number of Sims per household? I have other household with 8 residents and have no problems playing with them - NO BSOD. In the first 20 scenes that I already filmed, I did not encounter any problems. Now, the headache started when I played with the family with kids. It's driving me nuts. My game will either quit to desktop or ka-boom get BSOD. I looked for whatever I could have missed in the process. There's two lighting hack I have in the game, plus four more mods that kills certain unrealistic animations in TS3. They are fully tested and working in my game with no conflicts at all. But to be on the safe side and since most of these are still in its beta stages, I am only using that for filming. They are uninstalled when I'm on gameplay. Other than that, I don't have any heavy hacks or core mods installed. My TS3 game is still pretty clean and CC's very organized. I clean all the cache files once it get to a certain limit or installing new defaults. When I played with the family, [they aren't dressed to the max with CC's for the movie, just skilling them and developing their relationships] I don't get BSOD. I zoom in and out and can play long, 2 hours at the max - that's my limit. Now when I'm ready to film and shoot them with the correct CC's I need for the scene, in less than a minute, my game will get a BSOD! I really don't know what to do because all the CC's I have are tested. The only possibility I was looking to are the two custom hairs from Rose. They are fully tested and working in my game. No crash or quit to desktop. However, the BSOD's are only happening when my Sims are using those hairs. :/ I have tested and retested them for how many times, and they seemed okay, my game never crashed or quit to desktop. Only this time, Sim kids are wearing them. I'm going to delete these particular hairs from my game and will still have to see. I tried playing with other families and don't get BSOD at all. Only in that particular household. I really do not want to delete them just yet. I still have to shoot 8 more scenes with them. :( Starting fresh/Redoing the family would take an awfully long time and am really not looking at that as an option. *Sigh* I guess the most reasonable fix for this atm is to clean all my TS3 saved games that I have and start clean again. Geez, I'm already tired. :( This game is built this way and it will stay this way for long...

I'll just take a break from TS3. I know BSOD has something to do with faulty hardware installation but is not likely in my case. Only happening in TS3... I know my PC that well, hardware or whatever is causing the error, I am not going to risk destroying my PC by playing TS3.

Too bad, I actually love TS3. :(
