Tiny question about getting eps from origin

Post by simmeremma on Wed 28 Oct 2015, 18:21

This has probably been asked before, but i have the base game as a normal copy through origin/disc and download the stuff packs etc through here (thank you by the way) but was wondering if i was to buy spooky stuff will it still install to my current games?

Hi! That's a very good question!

I have a feeling that you will lose the stuff you got from here and have only your legit stuff, meaning that, if you only bought the base game and the Spooky Day, you will only have those two.

I feel that the search below might help you on giving you clues on what may happen, or on what you can do, maybe "mix & match" legit with pirate, but that would also mean you would have two separate folders for your saves and different games saved with different content etc.

I don't know what's included with Spooky Day, but I feel that it may be not worthy going through all that trouble. You may prefer to wait a little longer for a new "free release" (probably when get together comes up, a few weeks/days later, of course), and keep playing what you have so far. It will save you money and trouble fixing/moving things around all the time you want to switch between legit and "free" copies of the game and the saves...

You're more than welcome.

Yes, I feel it's not worth it. You would have a short blanked covering you anyway, very high risk of being able to run Spooky Day or "The rest" only, not together.

It might work for the first time, then you would be annoyed that you have much less content when you want Spooky Day, and your "The Rest" version would not have Spooky Day at all.

I may be wrong, but as far I have heard, whenever you run an official copy, it kills the "free stuff" you got on the side Sad

It wasn't / isn't the case with The Sims 3 though Very Happy

I only own what I like, but I still can have everything if I want. I use the complete collection, though, since it runs way better than the origin, and I log in from within the game with my legit licence. Everything works perfectly Wink

I wish you a great holiday!
