Post by IndyJanka on Wed 19 Aug 2015, 15:37

Hello,

I downloaded all 5 parts of the temporary fix and when I tried to extract them, I got this error. Could someone please help me? Smile Thanks !

I fixed it ! Look at your files, part 1-4 is supposed to have 850 MB and part 5 has 771 MB. For some reason, they didn´t download completely so I downloaded them again and now it works! Smile)))

also getting the same issue.
I was able to open and install the first file but got the error on the second, I did redownload the
2nd file again but the same error comes up.

Q. Would the game work with just the first one added?
im going to guess yes considering the way the fix's are made but would to know for sure from a mod/admin!

Q. If so can I skip the fix_files that wont de-compress?

I've tried it several times and I can't seem to get the complete parts....if it were uploaded as torrents it would've been so much easier

I'm getting the same thing on all but part 1. Rar has corrupted parts. I first tried what Carlos said and just extracted one of the archives and replaces my game files... but then I get the Origin not running error. I hope I don't have to uninstall and reinstall the whole thing again.

I switch from using 7-ZIP to unpack the RAR files to RARZilla and it this tells me that it cant unpack all of the RAR file, so i guess this maybe the problem which could be because there are RAR files inside...Idk!

Hi everyone!

Sorry, but could you be a little more specific? How does it not work? Do you get an error message of any kind?

Please keep in mind that this is a temporary Ultimate Fix. When Admin comes back from abroad he will upload the Ultimate Fix in a single file, and also as a torrent. But you'll need to be a little more patient on that.

If you are getting an 'Origin isn't running' error, then please take out your The Sims 4 folder from inside the Electronic Arts folder. It should end up at Program Files (x86)\The Sims 4. See if the game starts up fine then.

Keep in mind that for this to work the RAR files need to be extracted exclusively using WinRAR. You can get WinRAR 5.21 from our downloads website here:
https://www.games4theworld.org/downloads.html

Let us know how it goes for all of you. Good luck!

If yoiu still cant open the others and dont wanna wait -
If you Unpack and Install JUST the First RAR file (the other RAR may need to be present!) the game will update and will add the following atleast,

Outdoor Retreat DLC (Game Pack)
Luxury Party Stuff Pack
Perfect Patio Stuff
Spa Day Pack

It may add more in just the First RAR but im not sure!) plus will update to version 1.10.57.1020.

I understand and of course we all appreciate what you did. 
I seem to be unable to get the full parts due to an unstable internet connection so I figured that I'd download each part separately while monitoring the speed and opening up a random website if I feel it dropping. It's very ghetto but it's working so far so maybe you guys should try it.
or maybe just use a download manager  Oh my...



Mod edit: OP's problem seems solved, hence the topic is closed. Smile
