I've fixed problems with the game crashing before...but this is the first time I've ever had this particular problem. Whenever I go to make a family, the face of *all* sims ( both genders, all ages) are completely black...their body, hair, even their eyes show, but their face is solid black. when I put make-up on the make-up shows like there's a face there, but it's completely black. Any ideas of how to fix this?
Phew...Well...I followed the directions about replacing the objects file...then when I re-started the game it froze and wouldn't even load create a family. So I finally got frustrated, uninstalled and then completely reinstalled the game (put my downloads safely in another folder first), and then loaded the game.
And they still had black faces O.O;;
On the verge of a nervous breakdown, I then took all my downloads out and then re-started the game.
And they had their faces back ~__~;;;;
So obviously one among my huge multitude of downloaded files has to be the culprit ^^;; I guess my only option now is to slowly add the downloaded files back until I figure out which one caused the problem.
