Ever since the patch which gave us ghosts I've had some strange interaction options where the wording is replaced with odd numbers and letters (look like they might be some of the programming).    Anybody else have this problem.

Make sure you don't have any mods in your game that haven't been updated since the last patch. I read somewhere on the official forum where someone had a mod for the radio stations and was having those weird codes in their game....turns out it was an outdated mod.

yea I would do what BG said first - and make sure your mods are updated. (: Sorry to hear that though!

Thanks ladies, not using any mods though! I just have the game and the two updates, nothing in it that hasn't come direct from EA via Origin.

I'll have a proper look on the officials and see if I can find anything.

OK, I've tried

* using the repair game opiton, no effect.
*deleting the UI.package file and then running the repair game option which was suggested on the forums, no effect.


To try:

* Reinstalling the game (drastic and will be a last resort)


Still looking for other options first, any suggestions welcome.

Thank you BG and CD9. I've had a look at the links you've both posted and I've had to give in and re-install the game.

I moved my saved files folder first and put it back after the re-install and everything now seems to be working fine. All a bit of a pain but solution found and no loss to my legacy!

Just downloaded the new pools patch and guess what? The funny codes are back again. Really hoping there is another solution for it this time. I don't want to have to re-install the game every time there is a new patch! Mad

Wish me luck!!!!!

I have the same problem. Everyone on mts seems to agree it's because of mods, but since you don't have any that may just be wrong.

I don't play that much, it may just be possible to live with.

Well another re-install sorted the problem - such a faff each time though!

I've sent all my details to Crinrict so hopefully they will find an answer soon.

This MIGHT be a simpler solution:

That seems like a fairly easy solution. If I reinstall I might end up with being refused any more installs at a later date too, I can just imagine how annoying that would be.
