Horrible background noise Sims 3 Late Night
« on: 2011 May 18, 21:44:32 »
THANKS THIS IS GREAT

I can't find any solutions for this, and I have searched the internet. Sometimes when playing, there occure a horrible loud background noise in the game. It's from a TV, like some kids are playing a videogame and laughing. I've tried to destroy some empty houses, turn of tv's and stereos. Does not help. This is so destroying the fun of the game. Is there a way to solve this problem?

So, if I have posted the question in the wrong section, so be it.

I have had the situation where the game plays all stereos, computer game, or TV sounds at full volume, whatever the settings for sim voices, environment etc.  On my old P4 rig, I set all sounds to low quality, and this appeared to solve the problem.  However, I never did definitively figure out what caused the problem.

Another solution is, apparently, to build a more adequate computer, which is what I did in the end.

The solution probably lies in not being a psychotic amazone.

Amazone is an old (and indeed psychotic) troll, witch. She was probably around during the time you were souped. Tongue

That does not disqualify me from asking questions about the game.

Of course it does since I don't buy CRAP. Hope that was easy enough for you.

I have the same problem occasionally.  It starts with the sound of computer games, then something like a cartoon character laughing hysterically and bouncing noises, some music, a silly seductive male voice to the background of some romantic music, I can't remember the rest.  It's only a few seconds long, but it loops endlessly, plays at max volume and continues even when you pause the game or enter build mode.
It's usually coupled with all other sounds stopping and then rushing back in a tidal wave of noise several minutes later.

And *my* computer is most certainly not from wall-mart; it's hand crafted by a skilled computer technician with too much time on her hands.

I am getting this too. In my case it takes various forms - sometimes it seems to begin with a car journey and the sound is similar to that of driving. But it goes on for Sim hours, LONG after the Sim has arrived wherever, or I have even switched away from that Sim and the sound continues. It can stop suddenly or restart, as described above, at FULL volume, which is quite unpleasant. At other times there are the same ongoing television and radio noises as described, even with all electronics on the Lot switched off; at yet other times it seems to be simply random game sounds including Sim toddlers laughing, Sims talking, music.... It is really making the game virtually unplayable, at least with sound on.

As poster above, I have a good computer built by ditto. 8Gigs RAM, AMD Phenom quad-core chip, masses of HD space and degfragged regularly. I shut down most processes when loading Sims 3, except the antivirus and Firefox.

Something I tried, which so far seems to have made a difference, is to remove as many of the stereo's and fixed telephones from non-active houses.  I also reduced the number of high-rise night clubs I had added to the neighbourhood.  I predominately play one household, but keep a few others sacred so that I can mess with their life direction occasionally.  This seems to have helped reduce this problem.  I cannot say it has worked as the problem may resurface again.

I do recall so early sound issues being caused by multiple stereo's in non-active lots being on at the same time, or something like that.

It seems to be some EAxian bug that they either can't, or aren't interested in fixing.

Twallan's Overwatch mod turns off stereos (and tvs) in non-active households, so it may help if inactive stereos are to blame. I use it and never have this problem, although that could be coincidence.

IIRC, Awesomemod does this, too.

As of two weeks ago or so, Awesomemod didn't turn off stereos in unoccupied houses.  Don't know if it does or not for inactive but occupied homes.

I might have to try Twallan's Overwatch, it might make it easier than removing them all.

I have not seen this, as I have encountered many stereos in inactive houses to be blaring away when I switch into them.  Unless of course there is a config. setting in AM that I have missed somewhere, anything is possible.  Suffice to say that after removing the stereo's, the problem seemed to go away, knock on wood.

Did defrag start working again? See, that's what I get for sticking with my old machine. I fail to keep up with the times.
