Sims 3 Won't Start- Black Screen?
So, I just recently installed custom content.. realized the game wouldn't load, would just black out and go back to desktop. So, okay, I just took everything out, and made a new Sims 3 Folder, hoping it would run correctly...
Uninstalled brand new... ran with package files in the documents>mods>packages folder, and with my old save file... Still not working. I fear my computer may not have the requirements... But it was working fine days ago?
