The Sims 4 Full Trial Help (See question)

Post by icbogue on Fri 01 Jul 2016, 23:15

Hello everyone! I am having a problem related to downloads (I think). So I have had cracked the Sims 4 for a while now. I sort of stupidly decided that I would get the Sims 4 trial. I did this so I could get a few things from the Gallery. After my trial was over, I uninstalled Origin and when I went to open my game, an Origin window opened up. I will add a picture below. What can I do to get rid of this but keep my saves? I know that the CC & Saved Builds are in Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 4. Are saves here too? I just looked and I think they are. I have backed up this folder two times: 1. Before I downloaded the trial 2. After I downloaded the CC from the Gallery. I will try uninstalling the demo and see what it does. I have nothing to lose now.

Thanks!

Also, is there a way to run TS4 as 64 bit?

In this screenshot, it says The Sims 4 (Trial) even though this is the normal TS4.exe I use.

Hello,
did you correctly uninstall The Sims 4 Trial by going to Origin -> My Games and then right clicking on The Sims 4 Trial and uninstall.
Maybe, something from this guide will help you even if you don't have problems listed in topic'sname.

Hello @icbogue,


What happens if you go to C:\Program files (x86)\The Sims 4\Game\Bin and then run the TS4.exe ? The error you got above ?

Also, if you want to play the 64-bit version of the game, move that install folder OUT from that location. For example, under C:\Program files. Then run the TS4_x64.exe.

@The_gh0stm4n, @simmer_tony, I have already uninstalled and it removed the whole C:\Program Files (x86)\The Sims 4 folder. I guess I'm getting the crack again. Goodbye computer storage space Sad.

Also, please make sure Origin is not running while you launch the game.
Otherwise you will get conflicts...

Thanks, @Shamrock. After the trial was over, I uninstalled Origin completely. I'll just install TS4 again like I said above.

That is actually NOT the default install location where Origin saves its games, so you may have done something wrong on that end. But yes, ultimately you will have to attempt to re-install your pirated Sims 4...

The default location where Origin saves its games is C:\Program files (x86)\Origin Games, and the legit Sims 4 and the pirated version can "co-exist" on one and the same computer, provided that both games are installed in separate folder locations.

@The_Gh0stm4n I knew that. I wonder if Origin checks to see if there's a pirated Sims 4 before installing the trial. Seems weird but it might be possible. I checked the directory that you said, and there wasn't anything there. Then I went to the cracked sims 4 folder and it showed some things were added on the day I installed the trial.
