I have been trying to get my sims 3 cheat to work.
I have checked to see if I am typing in wrong but not.
I have done it on pause, on edit town, on pause on edit town.
The cheat box comes up but then once I type in it just goes away like a normal cheat would.
But then it doesn't work.
Someone please Help!!!!
Are you typing it in case sensitive like...testingCheatsEnabled true
Pay attention to the C and E.
Open the console by pressing Control + Shift + C. You'll see a blue bar at the top of the game, this is the console. now, type in testingCheatsEnabled true and press Enter to activate the code.
i had this problem for over a year! i finally got it working a couple of days ago, make sure you type "testingcheatsenabled on" exactly and it should work, then you can shift click your sim and mailbox ect. to get the extra actions ☺️
It's happening to me too. I've typed it in correctly, I've been playing for years and have come back to sims 3 from sims 4 as there is more to do, however my man is at uni renting a home and I'm trying to get his girlfriend to move in but when I use testing cheats, shift click on the girlfriend the option to move her in isn't there? I can edit her in creat a sim or object delete but no way to control her or move her in. I'm stumped.
I've been struggling pretty hard with this and it wasn't until I put in the code and then pressed shift then right clicked (using a MacBook) and it worked!!!! I was missing the SHIFT then right click all along. Hope this helped!
