View Full Version : So... Did Showtime Work For Those Who Had Issues With Pets?
6th Mar 2012, 10:34 PM
Hey guys! So as you remember, (if u read my past posts), i had issues with Pets like a lot of you did! :P My problem was the Intel G33/G31 graphics card and the incompatibility that all of a sudden just appeared with that EP... So... I wanted to know if any of you bought Showtime already and had issues with Pets (mostly 'cause of your graphics cards) and if it worked fine... :)
Guys, i'm sorry for the bump, but i REALLY need an answer and i can't contact EA/Origin or The Sims 3 team, so... Would you please answer? :( I really want this EP but don't know what to do as i don't know if i'll have issues too...

You have to be patient!
I'd suggest come back after a week or so, or at least after the weekend when the "newness" have worn off a tad. Some people don't get the game until the 9th, you know. Even then, those who have bought and can play won't be hanging around forums would they? They'd be playing! Once they encounter the new and old unfixed bugs again, they'll be around and then you may get a response. But not likely from people who already have weak systems as I doubt they'd buy something again when Pets don't work, but there could be eternal hopefuls around. Well for your sake, I hope they come around these parts.
I very much doubt Showtime would improve matters if Pets already proved the system weak. If you don't want to take my word for it, then please wait, and stop bumping. It is not the end of the world to not play Sims for a few days. Or in your case a few months now; I understand the withdrawals - I went for a year without when my old laptop died.
Well, not the end of the world for others but they are trying to stay alive from freak thunderstorms and tornadoes, earthquakes and unrest in the streets. Perspective, please. Jeez!
Saw thread today with Intel graphics and crashing issues on 1.31. http://forum.thesims3.com/jforum/posts/list/508907.page
You could probably do search over there yourself and locate more.
