Sims 4 base game instulation error...

Post by cheylangley1 on Thu 10 Mar 2016, 20:54

Help me!!!!!
tried installing the base game for sims 4 and when I click The_sims_4_setup, I get an "Data error(cyclic redundancy check)"
I will add a screenshot so you can see. what does this mean??? I don't think I can use the sims ultimate fix because the game itself wont actually install. all I did was download the file from this website and extracted it. the farthest ive gotten was trying to install.

pleaaaasssseeee help!!

Hello and welcome to the forum @cheylangley1,


Did you create an empty folder beforehand, and did you then extract the contents of the original .RAR file download, into that empty folder, with the program WinRAR ? Please do so, if you haven't. Smile  You can get WinRAR 5.21 here:
https://games4theworld.org/downloads.html

If you already did all that, do you still have the torrent in your torrent client under "seeding" ? If yes, please right-click on the torrent and select STOP. Then right-click again and select "force re-check". Wait until it's done and re-extract into the empty folder again.

Good luck and feel free to keep us posted !

That may be, because our instructions are from the time before TS4 had this 64-bit executable. We might change our instructions in future releases of The Sims 4, but for now, please move your installation folder of The Sims 4 under C:\Program files. NOT under C:\Program files (x86) ! Then, try running again the TS4_x64.exe.
