NilObjectException Crash

  • Type: Crash
  • Version Tested: 1.2 (Intel)
  • OS Version Affected: Mac OS X 10.9
  • Status: Open


While attempting to play Sims 3 in fullscreen with "Shades" on, I received a crash notice that stated:

"An exception of class NilObjectsException was not handled. The application must shut down.

Exception Message: image is nil"

Does anyone have a fix for this issue? I'd be incredibly grateful for help.
