Thanks a lot for the sims 4 and one question. [SOLVED]

Post by rockin on Thu 23 Oct 2014, 18:46

it was worthwhile waiting, since I'm sure you've done everything to give us a safe, easy installing version.
it was indeed the most easy game installing.
I installed the game and it's works fine.


I didn't understand properly the reason/importance for using the fix we got, after installing the game.
is it for future updates?
do I have still to add the game to my antivirus exemptions, even if my game works fine now ?


and do i have to do the other instructions there, like :




[ltr]After adding ALL of the installed game files to your anti-virus software’s exception list, copy[/ltr]


[ltr]the “__Installer”, “Data”, “Game” and “Support” folders in this .rar file, to the folder where[/ltr]


you’ve installed The Sims 4 to.

Hello rockin,


The reason for the Ultimate fix being there is that certain anti-virus software tends to delete crack files. So in the event your anti-virus does that, you can re-apply the update files + crack from the fix, to make the game running again. Otherwise, you would have to un-install + re-install the game again.

And yes, I would still add the game install location to the exceptions. As for the fix, if your game works fine for now, you don't have to apply it.


Hope this answers your questions !

P.S. you're welcome. Wink

thank you carlos.
just to be sure I understood.
you recommend me to do the first part of my question, meaning add the game folder to antivirus exemptions, but as long as the game works fine I don't have to do the second part, meaning add those folders (Installer”, “Data”, “Game” and “Support) 
to the place I installed the game folder,
correct?






btw in my antivirus it called " excluded files "

"Exclusions" or "Exceptions", it doesn't matter what exactly it is called, since it's the same. Smile


I suggested to add it to the exceptions that your anti-virus won't delete the stuff sometime in the future. It's a precautionary measure if you want.

I did NOT suggest re-applying the fix, because in your case it's not necessary. Wink  You only apply that fix to "repair" the game, if you wish, but again: since your game seems to be working fine, there's no need to do that.
