It worked for me.  Easier for those unfortunate ones, like me, that can only get dial-up.

Ever since I installed the 1.29 patch last night, I've had my sound cutting out and not coming back on. The sound plays as normal on load up, then about an hour or so after play, it cuts out. How typical of EA to "fix" things, and break a million other things.

You've named one problem that's probably PEBCAK; where are the other 999,999 other things?

You had a comma splice in your sentence; you're supposed to use a semicolon to join two related independent clauses.

Is anyone else experiencing random "ACCESS_VIOLATION reading address 0x00000030" crashes to desktop since the 1.29 patch? The crash happens at random times - with or without CC - so sometimes I can play for a bit and do many things, but other times it's the exact opposite. My Sim lives in Appaloosa Plains and is only on week 2 of her life, but could it still be a possible save corruption?

I've been getting those, too, since 1.26.  One was definitely a corrupt save, but my graphics card isn't well suited to games and seems to be part of the problem.  Turning down the settings, getting rid of memories, and using a smaller neighbourhood is helping so far.
I think she has a total of 5 memories (okay, maybe ~20 since they like to have memories of such trivial things) but I'll try deleting them, along with turning down some settings. I don't suspect graphics to be the issue, but it couldn't hurt to turn some settings down for a test. Thankfully, I won't be losing too much progress as she's only 2 weeks old, but these crashes are still ridiculous. I suspect save corruption, but we shall see..

Ever since I installed the 1.29 patch last night, I've had my sound cutting out and not coming back on. The sound plays as normal on load up, then about an hour or so after play, it cuts out. How typical of EA to "fix" things, and break a million other things.

Can you provide a bit more info? Does the sound cut off completely but come back after a while, all at once? If so, that's a problem that has been around for a while with no known cause, as far as I know.

The sound doesn't come back on after a while. It took me a while to actually realise that the sound had turned off completely. I first noticed it in CAS. In CAS the background music tends to cut out after a song or two, but the sound effects play as normal. Last night when the sound cut out, I figured that was the case again. Only the sound effects (changing clothing options, outfits etc) when clicking the buttons were not playing and the sim wasn't saying anything either. The last time it happened, I had my sim teaching his dog to speak, as the interaction started, all sound cut out again once more. I continued playing for a few minutes, then saved and quit the game.

EDIT: What is PEBCAK?

What is PEBCAK?

It's been found to be the most common cause of computer problems.  You should probably Google for a good PEBKAC scanner for your computer.

Next time you play, try one thing out: when the sound cuts out, pause the game for 5-15 minutes and do something else near the computer while you wait; keep an ear open for any sudden spew of sounds, which should hopefully happen. If it happens, just repeat the same steps the next time the sound cuts out because you now know it will come back eventually.*read below* This is actually a good thing because it means your game isn't screwed, just a victim of a random bug that has been around for a while. If the sound doesn't come back, I can only suggest basic troubleshooting suggestions such as removing CC/mods, etc.

Edit: A quick search led me to this thread right here on MATY: http://www.moreawesomethanyou.com/smf/index.php?topic=20852.0 - check it out if it matches your problem & follow the solution suggested. I know you said the sound cuts out completely, but I can't tell from your posts if you wait 5-15 minutes on Pause to see if the sound comes back. In my own experience with this issue and from other posts across the interwebz, the sound always comes back after a while.

I am going to give this sentence a special Grammar Day thumbs up for being correctly punctuated. Some might quibble about the comma before the final subordinate clause, but given the length of the sentence, I am happy to let it stand. Thanks for participating in Grammar Day!

I also have the sound issue but this patch didn't cause it as it existed before this. I just save and exit, then restart. Or I go play something else.

The thread linked above has a solution that may help you avoid the constant restarting.

Just updated to 1.29 patch and I have to say, what a dumptruck of fail.

Go to launch game.  Game says my mods may be obsolete.  Try to run anyway.  Game crashes.  Odd, just got the newest "1.29 compatible" versions of my mods, but whatever.  Time to track down the culprit.  

Began by removing a mod.  Same message.  Game crashes.  Removed another.  Same message.  Game crashes.  Wash, rinse and repeat until I have NO MODS LEFT in the game.  

Same message.  Game crashes.

So to recap: I remove every mod from my mods folder, including the folder itself and the game still just says I have obsolete mods and crashes.

Guess I'll be playing something else and hope EA can pull their heads out of their asses for 1.30 patch...

I had this too... so I installed a BRAND NEW copy of every single expansion on my other computer, Installed no mods, ran the game and It said "unable to verify that my cd is a valid copy" (because it isn't)

I put the Crack in, and it loads, BUT I get the out of date mod message...

Bottom line: A crack is a mod... /facepalm

Anyone know where to get a 1.29 Sims pets crack? If not I'll post when I find one.

Inb4 someone says using cracks with the sims is a noob move :>

Hope some Awesome Modder can show me the way Tongue

IF I COULD USE AWESOME MOD I WOULD THAT'S WHY I'M HERE!

I installed the mod correctly, Installed the updater correctly, and neither is working.

If your having the same issue Repatch and it will overwrite the crack, then google a No-CD mod if Awesome-mod doesn't work for you.

P.S.

Dude, even in the event of minor framework/patch fail AM will still perform the no-cd function.
For you to be having issues means you need to have fucked it pretty badly.

Are you playing on PC or Mac? My twallan no-cd mod randomly stopped working for a while at one point. I had changed nothing whatsoever. It was a Great Mystery. Course, I generally feel like my game is held together with Blu Tac and crossed fingers, so am not much help.

If you read through the AM Updater thread you will see that it has not been updated itself apparently and as such will NOT work with the latest patch.

Why use a stupid updater anyway?  Just update AM manually.  It doesn't involve anything more than copying and pasting files.

I managed to get Awesome Mod working, the updater still doesn't work >.>

My problem was I had it installed correctly, the old way... Didn't know the modding method changed since The Sims 3 came out.

Still have my Updater files in C:/Windows and now have the patch in the correct spot, and the updater doesn't work...

But you were right I didn't have the mods installed correctly >.>

Repatching (to overwrite the crack files) and CORRECTLY installing Awesome mod fixes that "Out of Date Mod" Message
