Windows 10 and TS3 crashing
« on: 2018 May 29, 20:42:05 »
THANKS THIS IS GREAT

I was curious if anyone else was having the same issue or just me.

Since windows 10 did the last major update/upgrade to the April 2018 edition, TS3 has been crashing to desktop a lot more that it ever use to.  It also doesn't say that TS3 has stopped or is shutting down, it just goes straight to desktop.  Before you ask, no it isn't just minimising the game, I have checked.  It usually does it without warning, no freezing, no glitching, just everything humming along nicely, then bang, the desktop.  I am thinking of doing to full, fresh, reinstall with the April 2018 version in case all the update/upgrades on updates/upgrades over time have slowly screwed things up.  I recall always being advised to do full, fresh installs, rather than upgrades to windows.

Just wondering if this is plaguing anyone else out there?

Yep, something with the update affected the memory in Win 10.

I only play TS2 and was getting the crashes to the desktop.

Follow the tutorial in this link:-

I did and I've had a few days of no crashes at all.

Sometimes I get a bout of crashing. I run the last patch before Origin in case some files have been corrupted and that seems to help. A reboot before starting the game will usually help too. I play TS3 on Win 7.

Hey Aussieone, did you see the new TS2 clothes? Some are really nice.

I have taken to rebooting everytime before I play, a pain in the arse more than anything else.  A fresh reboot does seem to help for a while.  I'll try running the last patch again, just in case something is screwed up.

I had a look at one of the links posted within that link.  Appears to be a known memory bug that has been in windows 10 for a while, and still not fixed yet. when I am more awake to concentrate and follow the instructions, I'll try the fix and see if it helps any.

Nice to know it's not just me. I get the "unable to start" error.
