Unable to load GTW

Post by leYUPPIE on Fri 17 Jul 2015, 08:24

Hi,

Firstly, I would like to thank G4TW in providing us an alternative to purchasing many different games for MAC/PC.

However, I have encountered a few problems in loading Sims 4 GTW since its launch.

I have followed the steps completely and the expansion pack is still unable to load (i just reinstalled the whole Sims 4 but to no avail).

My re-install steps are as follow:

1. Un-install Sims 4 (from control panel)
2. Delete off any existing files from C drive
3. Restart PC
4. Install Sims 4 Base Game
5. Copy and paste Sims 4 GTW to C drive Electronic Arts folder, replacing some existing files
6. Copy and paste Sims 4 Ultimate Fix into C drive Electronic Arts folder


Please advice.

Thank you! Why God. Why God. Why God.

Hello and welcome to the forum,


Are you sure you copied and pasted the "Get to Work" and "Ultimate fix"-files into the correct location ? That is:
C:\Program files(x86)\Electronic Arts\The Sims 4

It's NOT the one from My Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 4.

Yes, I'm completely sure that i copy and paste into the correct folder as windows will prompt if I am pasting anything into program files.

I tried reinstall with the new downloads but sadly, it still won't work..

I have one question though.. how do i run the game without origin?

Sorry for the late reply,


Please see this here:

The part about the Windows firewall should be easy to do, please re-read it carefully again. And AFTER you did that, please TURN OFF the firewall of your anti-virus program, if your anti-virus has one. Then try and re-start the game. Good luck !
