should i install origin?

Post by pauuchan on Thu 07 Feb 2013, 04:57

hi. im new here.
i got all my Sims 3 base game and expansions from torrents and here too.
so i was installing Seasons and this message is in the last window:

"Yes, I would like to install the latest version of Origin. (Recommended)"

should i check it? or leave it unchecked? i was afraid it would detect that i didn't pay for the Sims i have if i download it.
please help me if i should or should not install Origin.
thanks! Smile

Origin really serves no purpose for these games unless you'd want to update through the launcher, which is usually more trouble than it's worth. It's up to you if you want to install it though, as it has no way of detecting that your copy of the sims is any different than any other copy. Smile
