[BUG] Missing names in Vampires (Solved)
« on: January 24, 2017, 10:07:28 PM »
Hi guys,

Don't know if this is the right place to post my problem, but here goes. A lot of stuff is missing from Vampires - Sim names, object names, lot names, conversation topics as well as all names of skills, traits, and aspirations. Either there is an empty space or it says 'debug'. I have tried updating and repairing my game and followed this site's steps for clearing cache. What am I doing wrong? :'(

My first thought is that it may be part of the empty bubbles bug.

Codes instead of Text/ Empty Bubbles
http://sims4.crinrict.com/en/2014/11/codes-instead-of-text/

We may have to wait to see if Play's got any ideas of what it might be.

Note: Players that have Vampires installed are reporting this issue.
 
Codes instead of text/ Blank text and bubbles

Look on last page - pg.54 at time of post. Solution can be found on first page of thread. - Link above.

This bug isn't specific to Vampires, it's a long standing bug that's been around quite awhile.

Hello MrsFlynn,

Thanks for your reply. I decided to investigate my installation and seemed to find the problem. For some odd reason, I had both a regular version of the main game as well as a premium version installed. However, they weren't both updated and/or repaired. I uninstalled the lot of it and removed all remnants of TS4 in terms of folders etc. Then re-installed the premium version along with all the expansions and packs. It took a bit, but everything now seems as it should be. Phew. Time to enjoy, finally :)
