I'm not sure if this is the right place to put this, but my game has been crashing constantly and has only just started doing it. I have the 4gb patch and graphics rules maker, I've tried changing my compatibility and running it as administrator but as soon as I do my game doesn't even start or crashes. I've cleaned my cache, I've updated my drivers and I don't know what to do Sad

If you change compatibility/run as admin after running GRM and applying the 4Gb patch - compat. setting erase the GRM/4gb setting you just fixed.
*sigh* TQVM W10! *aaaargh* (Been there, done that.)

So... change compat/admin first.
Then do GRM/4Gb patch - and see if that helps? I'm no expert, but I've been down this path before Big Grin

Sadly, I have tried to fix those blasted ACCESS VIOLATION crashes for years! About all I can come up with is - too much CC.
How much CC do you have (including your SavedSims folder and anything you may have stuffed away back in the ProgFiles)?

Also - what iteration of the game are you running? Discs, UC, some-other-install? If you are using the UC, you should be using "George" to start the game. It is a no-CD.exe made by Kiri, and it is already 4GB patched. Good luck! Cool

oh its definitely CC then, oops! I had 28GB of CC bahahaha! I'll squash it all down now. What's a good number for CC if you know? And thank you for telling me about GRM! I'll check that out right now. Is George used for origin too?

George does indeed work with Origin. Using george will allow you to play the game without Origin, which also can cause crashing.

Another option to [ulr=https://www.reddit.com/r/Windows10/comments/7a0763/standby_memory_issue_causing_stutters_on_creators/]delete standby memory[/url] to free up more for the game to use, this route doesn't always work, but worth a shot.

Code:

Yes. George is for the UC - which is was only available through Origin.

Hello, sorry for not updating as quickly as I should have, (I was in hospital for a little), I removed 3/4s of my mods and created a brand new neighbourhood. My neighbourhood before began having issues with access violation at 32 households, this neighbourhood only has 3 households and it's crashing. Attached is my recent crash, thank you. Smile
