Consignment shop broken
« on: March 26, 2011, 08:27:35 PM »
When I try to sell something to the consignment shop, it cancels it out before I get any options. Any advice? Thanks

Do you have any consignments running at the moment?  There's a long standing glitch that causes what you describe that happens after consignments have been in the store for a while.  After a certain amount of time, the items that haven't sold are supposed to be mailed back to you.  What happens is that the counter reaches 0, but the consignments remain in the store and continues to count down as the days pass.  This negative number causes confusion in the register, and makes it unusable.  The easiest way to fix it is to "Cancel Consignments."  This should give all of your items back and allow the register to work.

If you don't have any consignment items in the store, replacing the register or the entire consignment shop sometimes fixes the problem.  However, there are times where the consignment system in a certain version of a town is simply broken.  There isn't a whole lot that can be done in cases like this as far as I know.

There's a long discussion on the subject here. Maybe you can find other suggestions there too, Jenny.

I have a bug in one of my games where I have to reset the sim after using the Consignment store if I want them to be able to use it again.

I did this and it fixed it -- thank you so very much and thanks to everyone else :)

This is a bit of a game breaker for me.  Actually it's not a game breaker so much as once you let the 5 days lapse the glitch follows the sim to whatever town you move him into later.  A mulligan is needed or a patch to fix it.  But as long a standing that this glitch is I don't expect one. Just rather sad considering.
