The Sims 2 UC Windows 10 Crashes

Hi all,

I was hoping somebody could help me. I downloaded and installed The Sims 2 UC on Origin earlier today and have also applied all the fixes mentioned in this forum and others but I am still getting random crashes to desktop. It could be when I enter CAS, a neighborhood or anything else for that matter. If it is simply because this game does not work with Windows 10 then I could live with that but I'm reading that people have actually got theirs to work. Any help is much appreciated.

EDIT: After more testing tonight it seems I can play in the Pleasantview neighborhood for a while without any crashes. All the other neighborhoods seem to crash though. Strange.

Your Video Cards.sgr needs to be updated - if you look at the config-log.txt you can see that:
Name (driver): NVIDIA GeForce GTX 970
Name (database): GeForce GTX 970

The Driver has NVIDIA on the front, and the database does not. The database is video cards.sgr - so if you update your video cards.sgr that will fix that.

If you go into your logs folder, do you have any sims2exception.txt files? if so - can you attach the most recent one to your reply so I can have a look.

There might be a corruption problem with the hoods, depending on how old they are and if you have any CC in your game at the moment.

Thanks for the reply. I have updated videocards.sgr and will test it to see if there is any difference. My most recent sims2exception.txt file is attached.
