Origin Must be Running error - MAC

Post by Nascar_Perry on Wed 23 Sep 2015, 02:40

I am using Sims 4 on a mac with wine as per a members great instructions here. 

I originally got the game from G4TW, so no mix and match issues. 

Game worked perfectly with no issues other the GTW expansion pack frequently disappearing forcing me to quit and restart the game several times till it was there. 

Applied the Ultimate Fix today following full instructions Including moving the Sims 4 folder out of Electronic Arts and to the C:/Program Files folder instead. 

I still get the error, anything I am missing here? The update I downloaded is the 1.10.57.1020
  fix

Should have mentioned, No anti virus program to configure, considering its on a mac. I do have Firewall configured as per the above mentioned members instructions to block attempts to connect with Sims 4

Hi. I was having the same issue. What I finally did was move (not copy but move) The entire Sims 4 folder to Programfiles (x86)/Origin Games. After I did that and started up the game worked fine. Try that out.

(x86) does not apply for my situation. This is on a Mac Book Pro. I only have "Program Files" as created by wine. I have move the sims from the EA folder and moved it to the Program Files, with no joy

Hi there, Nascar_Perry, and welcome to the Games4theworld Forum! Very Happy

As your problem is on Mac, I'll move your topic to the Mac Section. You'll have to wait for a reply there, most probably from @Phoebe.
