In game content won't show up.

Post by charaebelle on Tue 17 Feb 2015, 16:21

Hi, everyone.
I installed the Ultimate Fix today, followed all the steps correctly, and the Outdoor Retreat Content just won't show up.
I clicked on the link about that fix, and I followed all those steps. I was offline in Origin, all the folders are in my Anti-Virus exception list, and it still won't work.
I was so looking forward to playing, and it just won't work. I have done the steps at least five times and still nothing.
Can anyone help me with this, please?
What else could it possibly be?
Thank you in advance.

Hello charaebelle and welcome,


I think with the most recent Ultimate fix, you MUST close Origin completely before playing. So going only in "Offline mode" won't help. Also, make sure to look in your task manager for any processes related to Origin, and close them (in the "Processes"-tab, right-click on the right process and choose "end process").

Good luck ! Smile

Hey! Thank you for answering. I wish I had known beforehand I would have this problem. The thing is, the Sims 4 I downloaded needs Origin to play. Is there anyway I can bypass this at all? I really was looking forward to playing OR.

Charaebelle, you will need to un-install your (3DM/Skidrow) version of the game, if you want to keep up with the latest DLCs and game updates. Smile 

So again, un-install that properly, and then re-download the Games4TheWorld version here:
http://games4theworld.org/downloads.html


In addition to that, you will also need to download the "Ultimate fix", to get the latest game updates + DLCs. Get it here:
http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t18086-the-sims-4-ultimate-fix



Unfortunately, there is no easier solution though. Sad  So you will need to use the stuff from Games4TheWorld, if you want the latest updates + DLCs.

I actually got my game from NoSteam.
But thank you, I am currently downloading it.

OK, but that should technically still be based on the original 3DM/Skidrow release: namely the one that requires Origin (in Offline mode) to run.


Keep us posted ! Smile

I have really slow wifi, so it may take a few days to download, but when it has, I will add the fix and let you know if it works out. Thanks so much, again!

Have you already looked at this guide here ?

Maybe it can help speed up your download a bit. Smile

Hello.
So the game has finally downloaded, and when I tried to start it, it 
gave me the initialization error, I tried following all the steps, and it
still did not work. I applied the ultimate fix, and it tells me I need
Origin to play. When I do use Origin, the DLC content does not show
up. What's going on? I am getting really frustrated at this point.

Unfortunately, this is the way how many modern (cracked) games work - they have huge problems of all sorts. I wrote a guide about it, here:
http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t18501-unable-to-start-initialization-error-at-startup-updated-on-26-2-2015


If you cannot manage to get it working after THAT, then I'm unsure...for most people it seems to work, but for a few others it doesn't. I still think though that the majority of these issues are related to the things I described in the guide.

So make sure to (re-) read it very carefully. Good luck again ! Smile

That was one of the first things I had tried, but no luck. Sigh. I think I will uninstall the game, and try once more and do this fix, and take my time. If not, I guess not Outdoor Retreat for me.  Sad Sad Sad Sad Sad

Another thought: have you made sure to download & install ALL available Windows updates ?
