Inside every sane person there's a madman struggling to get out.

Reason: 1 problem got fixed.
This user has the following games installed:

"Unable to Connect to EA download Manager" message (Fixed, thanks to ellacharm3d) & stuck on Family loading screen, and then quiting (Nevermind, will have to wait 'till the next patch.)
I just got this message "Unable to connect to EA download manager". How do i fix this?
Loging in into EADM
Quiting and launching again EADM
<edit> Uninstalling Mods
<edit> Restarting My Computer
<edit> PS. Whenever i put files into the Downloads folder, the launcher doesn't even start. That's why i ask how to fix this message, because i think the downloads won't work because of EADM. (The problem with the Downloads fixed, thanks to http://www.modthesims.info/showthread.php?t=382520. But the cannot connect to EADM still pops out.)
Still pops out that message
Anyone know what's the problem?
Answers will be very appreciated.
<edit> If anyone needs screenshots, i'll post.
<edit> OK, so i've noted that whenever i try to load the game, it just exits! What can i do to make it work? I have patch 2.3. I really really want to play with Create-a-world tool
<edit> Nevermind, i'll wait till the next patch comes out.
1) Uninstalling the EA Download Manager, start via Launcher again to test.
2) If the above still cause a crash, try Game_Help:Bypassing_Launcherwiki, adapting the instructions to use "TS3EP01.exe" instead.
Do you mean when you have CAW opened and used the Edit-in-game mode, it crash?
Then that might have a separate cause than the game crashing. Let's solve the game's crash first before we deal with a totally separate tool.
....tried to remove the mods. If by downloads you mean, well,....
What does that mean, exactly? Have you removed CC or not understood the steps?
For the unable to select your saved game at the main menu issue, you've tried all the suggestions listed here Game_Help:TS3_Patching:Common_Errorswiki?
Well, if you had gone through all the FAQs in the Preparing sticky and Patching wiki, and it still crashes, next thing to check is hardware: please post Game_Help:System_Specswiki
Operating System: Microsoft Windows XP Professional (5.1, Build 2600)
System Manufacturer: system manufacturer
System Model: System product name
Processor: Intel(R) Pentium(R) D CPU 2.80GHz (2 CPUs)
Memory: 1024MB Ram
Page File: 677MB used, 1783MB available
DirectX version: DirectX 9.0c (4.09.0000.0904)
To update properly:
- download the file from above link
- boot to Safe mode (press F8 during boot-up),
- uninstall old driver via Control Panel
- reboot (You'll be defaulted to standard VGA drivers at low resolution)
- install new drivers
- reboot again
- after driver update, run another DxDiag report to verify if your driver version and date has now changed.
Test load the base game again ("TS3.exe" ).
Then test WA ("TS3EP01.exe" ).
No, not that version. Did they release yet another warning on Nvidia drivers released Dec?
The warning was for 195.62(Nov), for GeForce 6 and 7 series cards - causing Launcher to CTD. Earlier there was trouble with 191.07(Oct).
The patch won't solve your machine having an outdated driver, though.
