Downloading The Sims 4. [SOLVED]

Post by ToyaLea on Wed 12 Nov 2014, 18:05

I'm a newbie here. How exactly do i go about downloading the Sims 4 directly from this site? I tried once using the Torn thing that made me download but the actual Sims download never started and remained on 0%. Any help will be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Hi there, and welcome to the Games4theworld Forum! Very Happy

To download The Sims 4, you first need a client to download torrents. uTorrent and BitTorrent are two of the most popular, you can download whichever you want.

Then, you need to go to this page:
http://www.games4theworld.org/downloads.html

You'll see that "The Sims 4" is the first one on the list. Just click the Magnet that's next to the name, and if it asks you what program you want to open it with, select the one you downloaded. The download for The Sims 4 should start automatically. 

If you are having problems with the download speed on uTorrent, we also have a guide on how to fix them and make it download faster. See it here:
http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t11496-how-to-speed-up-fix-utorrent-downloads

After it's downloaded, you'll find an installation guide inside. Follow it carefully and you shouldn't have any issues. Please, let us know how it goes! Good luck!

Thanks lots for the quick response. Its downloading. I have a 2 hour wait lol. That port-fowarding turned out to be too much work so i'll wait my time and let you if everything was successful.

//EDIT

Hi again! Smile

Did you make sure to extract the RAR file you got from the torrent with WinRAR? Using any other program may damage the files inside. You can get WinRAR from the same page where you got The Sims 4, here:
http://www.games4theworld.org/downloads.html

The process to download it is the same. Then, extract the RAR with WinRAR and see if the error persists. Good luck! Very Happy

I'm not sure...can you try de-activating your anti-virus completely, and then try extracting again ?

Keep getting that "CRC failed in setup3.cab. The file is corrupt" Anti-virus was disabled. Deleted everything and downloaded the torrent all over again and getting the same message about the corrupt file while extracting. Also being told that the file "???" is corrupt. This is starting to look hopelss

//EDIT


It installed!!! My problem was with where i downloaded it to. Even though it was saying that it was fully downloaded before, i didn't have all the components. Got it now 



Mod edit: problem solved, topic closed.
