"Required game data is missing or damaged"

Post by NoOtherStream on Wed 22 Jul 2015, 20:42

Hi guys, I'm tried everything I can think of, but every time I try to start my Sims 4, I get an error message telling me that it can't start because "required game data is missing or damaged". This only just started today and I haven't added any new CC or mods. Everything I'm running is from this site and includes base game, get to work, and everything else offered so far.

Here is what I've tried:

  • restarting computer
  • removing all CC and mods
  • replacing desktop icon (saw this in a related thread)
  • redownloading and reapplying ultimate fix
  • COMPLETE reinstall

I can't think of anything else, so any suggestions? I miss my sims!

Please, rename or move your "Documents/Electronic Arts/The Sims 4" folder.

Then, follow the instructions in the VIDEO below and download the stuff from the link in its description at YouTube and try running the game. If it works, maybe you have corrupted files in the folder you renamed/moved. You can try to recover it by copying back the saves folder inside of your old "Documents/The Sims 4" folder (just the saves, not the entire thing, or you might end up with same issue.

The tutorial and the game version below are more up to date and they should work better. Let us know if you need further assistance or if you got your game working. Thanks!

Idid all of that but the spa day and other packs still are not added back to my game.  At first when I reran the uptimate fix, it would put them back in, but now that doesn't work anymore and I do not know where to get the spa day and othr packs file at.  I don't see it listed in the downloads here.  Can you provide me a link to those files?

Hi! Link is in the video's description at YouTube. I made it that way, so I can update the links easily if necessary (and trust me, I had to do it at least about ten times for several reasons).

Have a great simming time and keep us posted!
