Hello and welcome to the forums.

Have you properly installed TS4: Get to Work? The game should be running smoothly if done correctly with the expansion packs and DLCs intact. Where did you copy the files from the Get To Work RAR file?

Try extracting the contents of the GTW archive to the installation folder then apply the Ultimate Fix. Now that you're seeing pools mean that you successfully applied the Ultimate Fix only.

Might i ask, is it an initialization error? or are you logged into origin? or does the origin login window pop up after launch? Because the main thing I've noticed when something like your problem or an initialization error is that no one actually reads EVERYTHING in the install guide and to make everything appear you have to apply the fix as follows, LOG OUT of origin and make sure you exit in the task manager if it's still there. go into airplane mode, and then launch and then everything should work that way

Tried EVERYTHING...

Post by badwolf0711 on Thu 11 Jun 2015, 08:16

I have looked over ever post, uninstalled and reinstalled the game, GTW and the fix numerous times and nothing is working. The game loads and I've gotten some DLC I believe. No pools, no camping stuff, no traits. The only thing that will work is the base game. Origin is down 100% and my anti virus and all has been delt with properly as stated in the guides and on here. And yet I'm still stuck. It took me over two hours to even find a way to post this.  Why God. Noob I'm new here.

You can try re-downloading the crack-only here:
bit.ly 1dL2nT0

Copy & paste those files (inside the .RAR) into C:\Program files(x86)\Electronic Arts\The Sims 4\Game\Bin. When prompted, overwrite the existing files. Then re-start the game, and see if that shows any improvement. 



But in the end, you will probably need to find out what exactly on your computer is blocking the crack of the game. Check for any trial version anti-malware/anti-virus programs, toolbars with "security"-functions or any other downsized security software. I know this is difficult, but there is no other way around it ("thanks" to the fact that EA has arguably done a good job in making the game nearly uncrackable, unfortunately).


Good luck for now, still !  



//EDIT

Should it really not work at all, I will try and help you via TeamViewer. Feel free to check out the chatbox at the top of the forum's main page, when you see me online there !
