Can't play Sims 4

Post by rainythursdays on Sat 09 May 2015, 13:48

Hello!
I have the copy of Sims 4 from G4TW - the base game, GTW expansion pack and all the other extra packs. Today I was able to run the Sims 4 but when I click play on a household, the loading screen will come out and after loading it goes back to the neighbourhood map. It has been like this for all my households. Please help, thank you!

Hi there,

Before doing this, I suggest backing up your save files. Try deleting the file "Slot_00000001.save" in your saves folder.

Hello and welcome to the forum,


I'm sorry for the belated reply, but I just came back from a month of vacation, and it can still take a while until I respond again more regularly here. Please try and be patient with me. Smile

As for problems like these, experience shows they are caused by anti-virus systems which are "messing" with the crack of the game. Do you have anti-virus programs, and if so, do you know how to add exclusions to them ? See this guide here for an introduction (note - you might need to do some research on your own):

After you did that, try re-extracting the Ultimate fix from the .RAR file (if you still have the original .RAR download), and then re-apply the fix. Take your time for reading through everything - good luck !


@WatashiwaKisu, normally, you should open your own topic for things like these, but it's OK. Next time though, please click on "new topic" ina  subforum, so that your own topic will be created. Smile

And click on the button "new thread" in the top left of the subforum, to open your new topic. I will maybe try and look into "TeamViewer" for that.
