Unfortunately, my game will not run any more. Since I installed Patch 1.34, my game has had memory leaks (caused by the patch, not my computer), so I get a crash to desktop after only about 20 minutes of playing. And I really don’t want to have to time myself and start my game over from scratch when it takes a while to load anyway.
Until I can get this problem fixed, I will not be able to play with the Derpingtons. I have already done a massive reinstall of all of my games, but since the patch auto-installs, this did not fix the problem. Even in the vanilla game, I get memory issues, despite the fact that my computer has 8 GB memory, which is overkill for this game.
I’m just very disgruntled and I really don’t feel like reinstalling all of my games AGAIN especially when I’m this irritated with everything.
I have two more chapters that are already finished, and I will get those out to you, but I honestly don’t know when I’ll be able to fix this problem.
Until then, I wish you all have happy simming. If you know of a fix pertaining to memory leaks with patch 1.34, let me know in the comments, or if you’re aware of a new patch having been released, that would be nice to know about as well.
I’m sorry that I’ve had to deliver this news to you. 😦
I have confirmed without a doubt that it was patch 1.34 that screwed up my game. I installed the base game, ran it without patching it, and it ran fine. I then installed patch 1.34, and what do you know… it crashed 20 minutes after I started the game up, just like before.
I’m going to return to patch 1.33 if I can find the download online. I will not be updating to 1.34. Whenever the next patch comes out, I may give it a try, but this has really made me not want to patch my game again, ever.
