    I can create a neighborhood and can create the individuals in a family but once I say save family it tries to download for nearly 10-15 mins. I've pressed Ctrl + Alt + Delete and get the same issue with Sims2 not responding and such. So I have to quit the game. I've tried to create my first family nearly 5 times and have yet to get past that point. It's quite frustrating.
    I just got a new Dell and figured it would have the right qualifications for such a game.

My daughter has that game and was having similar issues. after reading the back of the game we found that it requires a better video/grafix card than we had and that the proccesor we were using was not fast enough for the game. she could play for a while and then it would just lock up. we have since gotten her a better computer and the game works fine

Game grim tales the Legacy is frozen


Probably means that another game is downloading or something else. It has been happening to me lately. I download several games to try and then play a game and frequently the game I am playing freezes and even clicking on 'Ctrl', 'Alt' and 'delete' at the same time does not always work. I have had to shut down my computer and restart it again. It also could be another program on your computer running as wekk

You can do this :
When you join a game and they're about to launch , just Press Alt + Ctrl + Delete , then pick the bottom option start task manager , (( sorry .. im using an arabic windows so whatever I tell you to click on may be in a different word , but the same meaning and location )) after the task manager window shows up. on top you got 6 tabs the last tab named as users to be sure , pick the 2nd tab named Operations then right click on explorer.exe (( be sure it's not iexplorer.exe with an i )) then select the 2nd option End Operation Now you can play without any graphic issues as long as you keep scrolling to other opened windows by ( Alt + Tab ) if you want everything comes back to normal then open task manager again, pick first option above tabs ( File ) then pick the 1st ( run ) and type explorer.exe then press enter.
good luck

I can't quit the game. I tried pressing the Esc. button, but it didn't work. I even held the Esc. button, to no avail. Eventually, I had to just press Ctrl. + Esc., but that just minimized the game. If...


use the hotkey Ctrl+Alt+Del to start task manager and then right click on the program you want to close. Then just click on end proccess. I think this is happening because your ram or processor is way too below the games requirements.

System ''Lock up" when running FSX Pro


you can try alt + tab. or do alt + ctrl + del win the game DOES run fine. windows task manager will pop up and it will push flight simulator in the taskbar.
