Hello! I might as well just jump right into this whole question thing.
I have had my Sims 3 game since middle to end of June I believe. Sometime in June anywho! Well now as you know, it's August 16th.
I have been playing it very frequently since then, so it's just as though this problem has randomly arisen. I was playing it an hour or two ago, my daughter Sim had aged into a Teen and so after about a day (in the game.) had passed I realized I ld probably save just in case. I went to the save menu, clicked on the game slot of the family she was in and it started to save and I was not worried! But then during it's save, the little red box telling me not to Power off or RESET froze. It stayed like that for a few minutes, because I thought that maybe letting it sit for a minute or two would help it. You know, I figured it was just doing that because it was fresh turned on or something? I don't know. CONTINUING! I decided to try pressing the Reset button- nothing happened. So, while cringing from the idea of it, I very extremely reluctantly held down the Power button. The Wii turned off and when I went back to playing my game it seemed to play just fine. It took me back to my last save on that family, which I wasn't too bummed about considering it was only a day before she aged into a Teen. I let that day go by, she aged, and I immediately tried saving while I thought I had the chance.
Turns out, the same exact thing happened with the freezing. What do I do?? Please help. :-/
