  1. Cursor Freezes When I Try to Download or Play Sims 4


    I have tried EVERYTHING! About two months ago, I went to play my Sims 4 which had previously worked fine and my cursor froze when I opened the game. The game graphics still moved, and my keyboard worked, but my cursor wouldn’t budge. I’ve tried everything from deleting and reinstalling the game, to factory resetting my entire laptop. Still having the same issue. The only way to get the cursor back is restarting my computer. Please help! I just want to play my game!

    :)

  2. The sims 3 or 4? Anyone play them?


    I've never played the Sims 4, but the Sims 3 is a lot of fun. I quite enjoyed the funny moments and building a house and such. Sims 3 is also open world whereas Sims 4 has loading screens for different areas. With both having their pluses and minuses, I don't think you can do wrong with either.

    As per the description, I understand that you are facing an error "The dynamic library "rld.dll" failed to initialize (E1103)" while launching SIMS 4 in your computer. It seems like the issue is related with the inconsistency in the system files or
    driver update. I will certainly help you with your issue.

    Note: I also suggest you to update the display card driver from the computer manufacturer website as well.

    Please confirm with the SIMS 4 support if they have released any patches for this game.

    I would suggest you to perform clean boot and check you are able to play game.

  4. Cursor Freezes When I Try to Download or Play Sims 4

    The sims 3 or 4? Anyone play them?


    Am thinking of investing in one of sims 3 or 4. Thought it might be a good game to get into and might be something my young son can enjoy too. I don’t see much point in just getting the base game as so many features are missing. So will get a few expansions too. But does anyone play the sims? With expansions also in mind is the sims 4 much better than 3? I guess in my experience sequels aren’t necessarily better so I thought maybe sims 3 could still be the better game?
