Unable to start

Post by ellyrubi on Mon 13 Jun 2016, 19:26

Hi I have installed the sims 4 according to the instructions given but the game is not able to start. The message that appears after clicking either  TS4_x64 or TS4: "Unable to start: The contents of your user directory were created by a newer version of the sims 4 and cannot be loaded. Please update your game via Origin to play." Can anyone help me out here? Thank you.

Open the folder My Documents - Electronic Arts - The Sims 4
Open the file GameVersion with f.e. notebook.
Change the contents of GameVersion to 1.13.104.1010 and save the file.
Now start your game

If Tarac's solution doesn't work try resetting the game to factory settings without reinstalling using this guide
And if you want to save all of your saves and mods do this:

before reverting to factory settings. Copy marked folder and place them temoprary on Desktop. Then use guide to revert to factory settings. Copy folders from desktop to  C:\Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 4.
