first off, i don't have WA.
now, onto the problem.
my game won't let me cook. the only thing that pops up for the fridge is 'Open'. and there is nothing in the fridge.
and when i roll over most stuff, it has stuff overlappping it, like this,
and in CAS my traits thing doesn't show up. i have to open the little window for it to show all of the traits, then i can see it.
plus my favourites is weird. it shows the fruit parfait, then white and white. so i don't know what my sims like.
yes, i have the newest patch. that's what caused this, in my opinion.
Please try the guide above. It is good for not just for game crashes but other general glitches.
