I guess I'll just play the sims 3. lol


Sorry to hear about your issues,

From my experience, the guide you linked to (and which I not only tested myself successfully, but on countless other people too) works *almost always*. Those cases that do not work often involve some "hidden" security software that the user is not aware of, or possibly some network restrictions: so that even if you allow the TS4.exe to communicate through the firewall, your network itself may be blocking the file. But I'll still have to see what is behind all of that.

Also note that the guide gets updated whenever new information is available. 

What I can also say from experience is that 9 out of 10 people have huge problems even in understanding the guide. This may sound arrogant to you, but it's an (uncomfortable ?) truth. And I have to admit myself: this guide is probably the hardest thing to do, from all available G4TW tutorials here.

In many cases, I then help out via TeamViewer, and mostly I manage to get the game working for people. But keep in mind that it is impossible for me to get back to all users on here, via TeamViewer.

Sorry, but what do you mean by that ? If you have problems with configuring your anti-virus program(s) and firewall(s), then the "format" of the download won't solve your problems either. And I actually find the way the downloads are for TS4 now, MUCH easier than the ones for TS3, but OK, that's just my view of things.


//EDIT

Indeed, if people really cannot get the game working, I often suggest that they let it be for the moment and do something else instead. And when they feel better, they should try again. There is no use in trying the guide "multiple times", as you will only make things worse. You keep on failing, and you will get more and more frustrated, up until the point that you most likely do something seriously wrong on your computer.
