Everyone! don't believe anyone who tells u to update ur graphics card, or u don't meet the minimum requierments and all that crap!!
actually some of us have the best graphics card and stuff, and we don't need to update anything!, I found out why this thing is not responding and acts really slow while playing and sometimes freezing, yesterday I thought of removing my mods folder from the sims 3 directory, I moved it to the desktop, and resorce.cfg too, when I played the game... YES! IT DIDN'T TURN TO THAT BLACK SCREEN AND IT'S FAST AND ALL! I got it back to what you used to be before I have this not responding problem
Yes, it's a download!, I'm sorry for these ppl who didn't install any mods or cc, I dunno what's your problem, but I hope you find out soon, but to those ppl who used to play the game with no crashes or anything and suddenly it began to turn to that dang black screen, CHECK UR DOWNLOADS!, there must be a hack or a mod or even a HAIRSTYLE! some ppl's mods or hacks are corrupted or maybe damages the game, even hairstyles, I read so many problems about installing peggy hairs and causing their game to crash, even if it's not peggy, it must be these unkown hairstyles, like converted ones or whatever
anyway I found what's making my game to no respond, and it's a hairstyle
the sims 3 acts so weird with CC, The sims 1 and the sims 2 didn't have so much problems with them though
I hope you find the download and delete IT!
Good Luck to everyone!
