    SIMS 3 game keeps on crashing while playing the game in WIndows 8 Consumer preview

    I have installed the SIMS 3 game in Windows 8 and the installation doesn’t had any problem as such but when I tried to run the game it just goes for some time and the screen becomes black. Have anyone faced this before? Is there any fix for this issue or some patch available to overcome this problem?
    171) Is possible to install Windows 8 OS as touch screen mode in the PC which as the touch sensitivity available? Is it a different installation setup or the same? How to install and use it?

    Hi,
    The gaming problem might be due to some hardware problem.
    It might be due to your GPU interface i.e. your graphic card must not to be goo d enough to process the graphics of thegame you need to play.
    You can try fixing it by lowering down the resolution of the game or the Graphic details.
    For your Second question the answer is:
    No,
    There is no such OS for pc giving touch senstivity.If your pc is touch interface then only you can use it otherwise with the mouse and all the OS is same for both touch and non-touch PCs...
    Hope this might help.....

    Dear Friend....

    It might be occur only 2 reasons:-

    1. Compatibility issue for which you need to check what hardware configuration is actually required for playing this game.

    @ 2.4 GHz P4 processor or equivalent
    @ 1.5 GB RAM
    @ 128 MB Video Card with support for Pixel Shader 2.0
    @ At least 6.1 GB of hard drive space with at least 1 GB of additional space for custom content and saved games
    @ NVIDIA GeForce series FX 5900, FX 5950

    If you have this configuration, then you can play this game.

    2. A part from this, it can be a crack issue which you have to paste from the C-Drive where the game files installed and then paste and replace with the desktop icon. The problem has been resolved now.

    Thank you...

    The SIMS3 is a graphic Intensive game, that is it requires high specifications to run the game.

    If you are dependent on the onboard graphics chip to run the game then some form of problems might occur,
    also RAM is a vital issue, extra RAM can provide seamless running of the game.

    But in case of crashing of the game the problem might be of either the software which was installed or the installation was incomplete.

    Get the latest version of SIMS3 from any source, install it, after uninstalling the existing SIMS3 game, and possibly things will be normal.
