Cant start my game since game-time sims replaced on my computer

Post by Wonderwalls on Mon 24 Aug 2015, 14:50

Hi!

I've previously downloaded sims 4, g2w and used your ultimate fix. I'm currently downloading the temporary fix.

However when I wanted to play sims 4 while waiting for the new fix, I noticed that origin decided to download an old sims 4 gameplay file I have connected to my originaccount. It didn't matter if i tried to start it via the deskopt app or the folder in game/bin. 

So I deleted origin but now I only get this message:


Do I wait for the new fix to maybe work or should I reinstall?
Also is there any way to save my family if I have to reinstall?

Thanks on beforehand

Hi there, @Wonderwalls! Very Happy

So, at what location is the game located now? If you installed the game from here, then it should be at Program Files (x86)\Electronic Arts\The Sims 4, but you could also have moved it to Program Files (x86)\The Sims 4 if you followed the latest Ultimate Fix instructions.
Origin should have installed that Game Time version to Program Files (x86)\Origin Games\The Sims 4.

There's no need to uninstall Origin to fix those issues. And did you uninstall the Game Time version before deleting Origin?

What you can do is re-apply the Ultimate Fix, that is already available here:
http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t20953-temporary-the-sims-4-ultimate-fix-version-1-10-57-1020-out-now

Make sure to read all of the topic before starting, and following the instructions very carefully. Please, let us know how it goes. Good luck!

Hi! 
My game is in Program Files (x86)/ The sims 4. 
I'll try to reapply the latest fix.

No, I couldn't find game time anywhere in my origin.

Are you playing The Sims always with Origin closed (it can't be running in the background, even if no "origin" window is open) or with it at OFF LINE mode all times?

It's a funny side effect. Try to rename your "The Sims 4" folder inside your Documents to see if the game recreates it by itself Smile

Let's know what happens!
