Hey guys, I got as far as this but now it's telling me to "Please update your game via Origin to play."

I can't seem to find anyone else addressing this in the forums... have any of you encountered it?

Thanks!

Alright, the solution should be pretty simple.
Just go into your Documents > Electronic Arts > The Sims 4 and delete the file called "GameVersion.txt".

Cheers!

Re: The Sims 4 - "Origin not Running" Issue with latest Fix - In Wine Wrapper

Alright, so now I have this new problem.. I've got everything installed just in the way that is explained perfectly fine. 
But when I start the game and get the: "Origin has encountered a serious problem and needs to close." message, the game just won't start! 
If I just ignore the message, nothing happens.. If I mouse click "Close" or simply press Enter, the program REALLY closes!! 

So what should I do? Have followed everything you guys put in links at this forum, but just can't get it together!

Please help!

So i am running into the same issues but i have a different ending:

- Base game + get to work launches, no problem
- Installing get together + the ultimate fix causes the origin message. Game doesn't launch
- I did install origin (oldest version of the installer, I found it myself but I assume that's the same as the one posted above)
- The game launches after the origin error message, I can play.

Except : ALL THE PACKS and EXPANSIONS are not there. I cannot load any of the extra content, I am told that I don't have it.

Anyone else having this issue? Can you please confirm that when you do the origin install trick, you are supposed to have everything?

Thanks a lot for your help

I have the exact same problem! Did you find a solution for this?

Having the same issue that @zappster was having before they got it working. I've tried the Origin installation trick, but it just says that it cannot install (no executable?) and quits. 

As for the error saying that you need Windows 7 to install Origins, just open up Wineskin from inside the wrapper, go to Advanced, Tools, Config Utility. At the bottom of that window you can set which release of Windows to use. I selected Windows 7 and stopped getting the error. 

However, still not able to install it due to "no executable". Sad

edit: Downloaded a Legacy version of Origin and got it to install with the expected "Origin had to close" issue. Started game. Still not showing expansion content except for the UI updates.

What Macs do you guys have? I'm using a Macbook Air and all the packs aren't working on my laptop. But when I copied the wrapper on my friend's Pro, it showed. I think it's because of my laptop. Sad

Hey, I followed the first step here, but I don't have the same directory so I don't know how to add the DLCs. Also tried installing the base game + ultimate fix but it won't work. Can anybody help me? I want to add the base game and DLCs. Thanks a ton!

@zappster wrote:Oh my god, oh my god!! I got it working!!! A little hassle but this is what I did:

1. Download EXE (take note, not DMG) installer from Origin.
2. Right-click your Sims 4 wrapper and then click Show Package Content.
3. Double-click Wineskin.
4. Click Install Software.
5. Click Choose Setup Executable and the locate the Origin EXE file you downloaded.
6. Let it install. If there's an error that says Origin had to close bla bla bla, just click CLOSE.
7. Wait for the Wine window to show up, that means Origin was installed.
8. Double-click your Sims 4 wrapper and hit Enter once an error about origin needing to close shows up again.
9. Play the game!!

At first when I didn't get to hit enter and I opted to click CLOSE using my trackpad, the game opened in a windowed format but was really small. As in, 5x5-pixel small. But when I just used enter on my keyboard, it went on to the usual game.

My only problem is that my old game didn't load.

Also, I tried closing the game and opening it a gain a couple of times and it still worked.

I made a new game, closed the game, opened it again, and the new game was still there.

I hope I was of help!! Smile


This is the only thing that got my game running. Some items aren't showing up in Build Mode but it's another success story for the Origin error and this post on a Mac... and an old stupid Mac at that (2010 desktop on the verge of giving in).

ETA: I can't find a solution to the missing expansions. Has anyone "solved the unsolvable?"

It used to work for me, but now that there's the toddler update, I always get the Origin error after I install that. Works fine until City Living, though. I've tried installing the legacy version of Origin and updating it using newer files, which gets Origin working, but doesn't solve my Origin error problem anymore Sad
