Strong first post. 1/10 would not read again.

This works.  I tried several remedies for Error 12 posted on various message boards.  None of them worked.

It's not easy:  I had to run not only the save files and the library, but also all the custom content I'd downloaded through the years, through the decrapifier.  And as bloated as my save files were before it, I don't know why it was needed as I have 12 MB of RAM (although I think TS3 as a 32 bit program can use only 4 MB, but regardless the task manager showed the memory usage when I went out to Edit Town at about 2.5 MB), but I did have to do it.  It took me over an hour to get everything decrapified plus finding a few pieces of custom content that wouldn't cooperate (Process Monitor showed TS3 looping on the hair and paintings of 2 creators).

But...it was well worth doing, as I was hitting Error 12 anytime I played for over 2 hours at a time, and now I just played 4 hours (saving in between because I was unsure it would work) and never hit it.  The save files are much smaller as well, though in today's age of cheap hard drive space that isn't much of an issue for me (or likely for most people).  But getting it to save certainly is.  I recommend this method to anyone who's getting repeated Error 12's.

As was said in the post early in the thread, every bit of custom content-- not game mods, but skins and items (I download a lot of "paintings" because TS3 comes with so few, even including expansions), has to be decrapified or it won't show up in the game anymore.  It can be dragged to the decrapify file in Windows, even selecting multiple files at a time, so it's not as bad as it sounds.  It still isn't fun to do the decrapification, but if the E12 is ruining it for you it definitely has seemed to fix that and you'll have a lot more fun in the end by using this fix.

Edit:  It didn't work the miracles I thought it did when I wrote the above.  Last night, I Error 12'd again when trying to save.  Then in something that was almost certainly a coincidence but was still a pain, after I finally gave up and quit without saving, I couldn't start up again.  Origin said it couldn't reach the net and that my first login had to be online (it should have had my login data saved and known I'd been on many times before, and I could even log in to the Origin site on my browser so it should have been able to reach it, anyway).  But I did just now manage to reload my game.  I did think that this was a panacea that would end the E12's (for at least a couple months, until the files got crapified again and I just had to do the same again), but now I'd say it only helps a little.  It's still better than nothing, but if you have a lot of content that also has to also be decrapified I'm not as sure it's clearly worth it as when I wrote the above.

Yeah, that's part of your problem---

I think it's the 12 Megabytes of RAM, personally. It's amazing Windows even runs on so little RAM. (precision of language, dumbass)

It's a SSL certificate issue. Have you changed anything on your computer lately? New firewall? Antivirus software? Is the time/date correct?

From dropbox's site:

I wonder where her alleged "silent majority" is. Surely someone has stepped up and told her how to do it in a personal message, because you know, they are "too afraid" to post publicly.  Roll Eyes

I miss your retail hacks in TS4, Inge. I loved the auto restock and instant cash register in my OFB stores and wish my retail establishments had them again!

I also wish Pescado would mod for TS4, I'd love to see what he'd come up and fix. I have fewer quibbles with TS4 than I have with previous games, but there are still annoyances I'd like to see fixed!

This is not an AM bug, moron. Don't use the automatic updater, learn to update it your own damn self. It's not hard.
13  TS2: Burnination / The Podium / Re: Awesome fixes on: 2014 August 17, 22:26:43
Just the most recent one, in your case probably M&G.

That Jeezer can be quite the rascal at times, but he's nowhere near as bad as Jeeslla or witch poffs.

Gotta watch out for us. We're mean and take no prisoners.

Cracked Demo torrent is up. Am downloading nao. People on the OFFICIAL(!) forum alerted me to this torrent and they say it works.

That's because you only have two brain cells and neither of them are connected.

18  TS2: Burnination / The Podium / Re: Can't adjust relationships bar using testingcheats? on: 2014 July 28, 11:12:40
Yes, and you have to find which one of those 160 files is causing the problem. You need to do a "binary search". It's a lot easier than it sounds, I promise. It's also a LOT faster than testing all 160 files individually.

Take out half of the files, start your game. See if problem exists.

If YES (you can't edit the relationship):

* The problem file is one of those left in the game.
* Take out half of the ones left, start your game. See if problem exists.
* Repeat until you can edit the relationship.

If NO (you can edit the relationship):

* The problem file is NOT one of those left in the game.
* Take out all of the files.
* Put in the other half of the files. Start the game. See if problem exists.
* If YES (you can't edit relationship) see above.

Example:

1.package
2.package
3.package
4.package
5.package
6.package

1. Move files 1-3 to a temporary directory.
2. Start the game. If the problem exists, it's either 4.package, 5.package, or 6.package.
* 2a. If the problem does not exist, the problem is either in 1.package, 2.package, or 3.package. Move 4-6 out into a temporary directory, move 1-3 into games directory. Repeat steps 3-5, using appropriate named packages as needed.
3. Quit the game, move 4.package, start the game. If the problem exists, it's either 5.package or 6.package.
4. Quit the game. Move 5.package, start the game. If the problem exists, it's 6.package. TADA! If the problem does not exist, the problem file is 5.package.
5. Move the broken package out and move the working ones back in.

Tip:
Don't mix known working packages with unknown packages. Create as many folders as you need to keep yourself organized during this search.

Once you find out which file is causing the problem, you can report it here and someone may be able to fix it, or we can tell you if you can live without the file.


19  TS2: Burnination / The Podium / Re: Can't adjust relationships bar using testingcheats? on: 2014 July 28, 00:02:56
Well, which mod/CC was causing the problem? That's your first step in figuring out how you broke it.
20  TS2: Burnination / The Podium / Re: Divorce on: 2014 July 25, 22:30:42
Because MATY is all about being PC.  Roll Eyes

You're a retard and I wish you would just keel over and die. No one would even miss you.
21  TS4: The Pee-ening / Insert Amusing Name Here / Re: L&P: The Sims 4 CAS Demo on: 2014 July 25, 11:26:39
You have to have an internet connection to verify the game (not the demo) during installation. I'm guessing that it'll require you to have Origin installed and will verify your game through that.

23  Awesomeware / AwesomeMod! / Re: remove expiry date AM 1.63 on: 2014 April 29, 23:00:15
To sum it up: since I don't give a damn and actually find it kind of interesting to see your desperate fails to offend me then YES, it was worth the "effort". Had I truly wanted AM I would of had it in my game right now.

Translation: I was unsuccessful, so I have redefined the terms of success.

Which sounds a lot like Eurotard. WINNING.

The way I see it is, you may think we're tards, but we still ain't giving you what you want. That kind of gives us the edge, and just makes you look well named.
25  TS3/TSM: The Pudding / The World Of Pudding / Re: Sims interaction issues since last AM update. on: 2014 April 23, 17:50:35
1) Did you take out AM (while leaving other CC in place and CC free) and see if the problem went away?
2) This could have been posted in the AM bug thread, if step 1 turned out positive for an AM problem.
