    I've decided TC3 Patch Day can be shortered to just T-Patch Day. What do you think?

    TC3 is going down in, uhhh, 5 mins. Sorry for the short notice! We don't expect downtime to be longer than an hour. Please keep an eye out on the dev blog for version notes.

    Whee! T-Patch Day!

    I think it sounds good .. but I'm a fan of abbreviations.

    I'd call it TPD.

    Normal update day for TC3 [​IMG] Pari being silly=T-Patch.

    OK if i login without the -r800x600 I get stuck at 35%...so far.

    Guest Guest

    I tried updating to EA Land then back to TC3 but had same thing happen, login gets to 100% and error message pops up that it's stopped working. I'm on Vista and this happens with both patch and with client.

    I guess its just us CG, what shall we do while we wait? [​IMG]
     
  22. Guest

    Guest Guest

    Same thing happening to me.. Log in.. then POOF screen disappears... both with client and patch. It did do the update though the first time I went in..
     
  23. Guest

    Guest Guest

    Same thing here. I type in my acct and pass, it loads to 100% then I get the "TSO has stopped working" error and Windows shuts it down. I've tried it on the patch and the client, tried it on Run As Administer (Windows Vista Business)and even tried running in windows XP compatability. Uninstalled, reinstalled, did it all over again and still not getting in. [​IMG]
     
  24. Hrmm. I had no problem updating TC3 and logged right in. I don't patch back and forth. I have one game installation for TC3 and another separate installation for EA-land. Logging in with client will never get you an update patch. Must login with just TSO.exe. You might try rebooting computer to make sure buddy.exe has been released by windows, so that when you login with patch you are getting a clean game launch.

    I'm on XP also (Vista = [​IMG] LOL) and patched back to TC3 from EAL fine, selected the sim I wanted but then stuck at 35% entering the city. Will be watching to see what's up. Been doing other Wednesday stuff or I woulda checked sooner and reported that it wasn't just Niki LOL.
     
  28. On my desktop computer, I get into the city, but I can't enter houses and I tend to crash to desktop. BUT on my laptop, I can't even get into the city, I get stuck at 35% and it goes nowhere. [​IMG]

    Ater reading this I tried again using TSOClient.exe instead of Patch, same result. [​IMG] was thinking that might be a workaround.

    I patched just fine, updater up date of 578.2kb and TC3 update of 8.4mb, everything worked fine until I got the latest patch. I always log in with the patch (aka tso.exe) first, since its the only one that will allow me to choose from my three AVs (the client greys out the other two). Rebooting didn't help. I always reboot after in unistall something and then again after installing something. Windows had an update today (Group Policy Preference Client Side Extensions for Windows Vista [KB943729]) so maybe that's conflicting with the TC3 update? Can't see how though.

    Since I've made my other post, I tried working with my firewall (McAfee) to see if maybe the problem was with that. I turned it off completely, the game went to the acct password screen, loaded to 100% then froze just like before with the error that its stopped working. Set my firewall to not launch at startup and rebooted to try again, again the same thing happened. This is with BOTH the tso.exe AND the client. Maybe a solution will come up later.

    I just hope this isn't another of those "bug fixes" that turns out to be someone made a mistake, like when free accounts were locked out of skill/money houses.

    Edit: got in fine in normal mode but window mode shuts down instead of going to the city view. I put in my login info and it progresses up to 100%. When it should be showing me my avatars, it shuts down.

    I am having the same problem with windows mode. Full screen worked, but it left me hanging at 35% after I picked a sim.
