I'm not sure if this is a proper question, but what method is used to crack updates?

Hello,


If you mean to ask how I/we extracted the game updates, then here's how:

At first I de-activated automatic updates in Origin. Then, BEFORE updating the game, I copy the folder "The Sims 4" (C:\Program files(x86)\Origin Games) into another location. This is really important.

And after the copying, I update the game. Now, in my program files location, I have a fully updated Sims 4 folder. But, I also have the previous version of the folder (because I copied it before the update, remember ?).

I then used WinMerge to compare the contents of the two folders (old vs. new "The Sims 4"-folder), and so I could find out which files exactly have been updated. 

I did propose to the Admins and fellow Mods to use these files that we created "ourselves". At one point, we were also doing research on the crack from RELOADED, so that we may be able to release our own crack, in the future. 


We will continue working on this though !
