Sims 4 must update before running

Post by catfishnthebottlemen on Sun 19 Jun 2016, 23:00

Hi, I have the base game through origin and i was trying to install some expansion packs. I followed all the rules on where to put the folders and such but when i got to open the game a popup occurs. I was just trying to install get to work first and i wanted to run it to see how it was.

I go into origin and then it needs to update as well, so i updated it and replaced the files again and the same error comes up. When i open it in origin i press play, it seems to load or a second but then it stops and i'm able to press play again. So in short it does nothing now.

Simple solution:
Open the folder My Documents - Electronic Arts - The Sims 4
Look for the file GameVersion and open it with Notepad
Change the contents to: 1.13.104.1010 and save the file.

Now start your game.

Note: Every time you update your game via Origin you will get this error again and you will loose all pirated installations.

Edit: The above version is valid after installation of Get Together.

You can follow @Tarac's solution or pirate whole game which is much easier and if you have future problems they will be solved easier. To pirate whole game use this guide.

I was downloading get to work, do i have to change the contents to a different number then? and will the pirated installations be there?
also if i pirated the whole game would i have to uninstall the original

edit: i put in 1.5.139.1020 and it seems to be running; but in the future for the base game to get the pirated version where would i start since i have the expansion packs as well, would i have to reinstall them after getting the pirated base game?

Best way is to pirate whole game from here. Look at my previous reply for more informations. Uninstall every legal piece of The Sims 4 and close Origin when running pirated game.
