Legit Base Game and G4TW's Get Together. [SOLVED]

Post by crystaaaaalxo on Mon 14 Dec 2015, 12:11

Has anyone tried to download G4TW's Get Together with a legit base game? I'm a little hesitant to try. Is the Ultimate fix still required?

Why did you even buy the game if you want to pirate DLC...?

If you have the legit base game, I recommend you download G4TW's separate pirated base game and then download the pirated expansions/packs.

That way, you can still use The Gallery with your legit base game, and then have a separate pirated version of Sims 4 with all the expansions/packs.  Good job!

Hello,

Yes, this is technically possible. Just keep in mind that if you pirate any DLCs or expansion packs, you're going to need to crack them too. The crack cracks the game as a whole. This means that you should ALWAYS play with Origin completely closed. If you do log in with Origin open, it will detect that you do not actually own the DLCs/expansion packs and they simply won't show up in-game. Therefore you might as well pirate the whole game.
If you want to install expansion packs to an original The Sims 4 base game copy, note that you should copy the files to this folder instead:C:\Program Files (x86)\Origin Games\The Sims 4\
Also make sure that you do not accidentally update your original The Sims 4 copy via Origin, as this will break your cracked content. HERE is a little guide on how to turn off automatic game updates in Origin.

Hope this answers your question. Smile

A very blunt, but absolutely legitimate question. Maybe it's because people didn't realize (from the start) that keeping up with DLC is going to be expensive. Maybe it's also because of "good conscience", for some people ? So that they don't feel as bad, when they pirate stuff later on ?

Either way, reasons for people buying/having legit games can be various (I myself got it as a gift), and sometimes hard to understand from a rational standpoint. But that to judge is not up to me.

This is The Sims. It used to cost hundreds of dollars to own the whole package even before DLC became a thing.

Anyway, it is up to you to judge. To all of us. People buying this garbage is the reason companies like EA keep releasing garbage. As for anybody who did it out of conscience, well I'm sorry but they deserve what they get.

Sure it is The Sims. But people do not always inform themselves beforehand, about events/facts from several years ago. Which I attribute partially to the *not so good* Western and "Western-inspired" public educational systems. 

And yes, I would not underestimate irrational motives behind human actions in general either. People's actions are very often (and sometimes even unconsciously) influenced by emotions, fears, wishes and the like. Things which don't necessarily have any rational basis. 

I'm also astonished by the high number of people asking if they can "add pirated DLC to a legit Sims 4 game", given the fact that you can get a pirated basegame as well. The ONLY advantage you can get from a legit Sims 4 game, is the access to the gallery. But even that may be turned off by EA, sometime in the future. 

But in the end, explaining this to the people (that they can actually pirate the basegame too), is pretty much all I can do.

Not a good idea. If you turn on online features, the default Origin account in the cracked version says RLD. I never tried to change it as I don't want to find out what will happen.

I've experimented with this a bit BUT I definitely would NOT advise adding cracked content to a legit install. If you're not the type to back up your install folder and TS4 folder in your Documents constantly, you'll end up being locked out of the cracked content anyway. Origin will check against your account to see if you have the items. If you don't, you'll probably get errors saying the game was saved with a different version or something to that effect.

I have a legit install and a cracked install at the same time. I just keep the legit install outside of the install path, rename the folder and EXE's.

No need to have a legit game and a pirated one "simultaneously". And yes, you can use the gallery from within a pirated game, if you log into your Origin account before starting it.

If done correctly, your Origin ID should show up in the gallery, instead of RLD!. The only things you need to pay attention to are to use the gallery ONLY from within the main menu of the game, and also make sure to de-activate automatic Origin game updates (see this topic here). Other than that, feel free to use the pirated Sims 4 to connect to the gallery (which is only going to work if you have a legit Sims 4 on your Origin account.

@adamzaid, next time please open a new topic for your concerns, instead of bumping another person't post. Smile  Since the OP isn't going to post back I guess, I will also close the thread.
