Changing Directory During Install

Post by SakuraAngel1 on Wed 20 Jul 2016, 04:08

Hello!

So, I have downloaded The Sims 4 Base/Get Together/Get To Work expansions from the G4TW downloads site and when I tried to install the game and change where it would be installed, it won't allow me to change it at all. WhatDidUJustCallMe? 

Now, here's the thing...

I HAVE followed all the instructions that were here: http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t19572-how-to-move-the-sims-4-to-another-partition-after-installation-fix#

And even tried doing the "Alternative Method" as suggested in the guide, but the installer still won't change from the (C:) directory.

I have freed up as much space as possible (only 4GB left free, the rest are necessary program files) and still can't install. Using (C:) is absolutely NOT an option for me, because that's all the space I can get while my good computer is being repaired in the shop.

My only option left would be to download The Sims 4 from another source and I really DON'T want to that, because I love G4TW... Why.

My question is: Is there any OTHER possible way to change where the Sims 4 would install?

Thank you in advance for your help!

Hello,
did you reboot PC after changing registry? If you didn't repeat and be sure to reboot. Inedd, after installing Base Game you can move it to any other partition you want.

Hello @SakuraAngel1,

Indeed, after you did the alternative solution, don't forget to re-boot the computer. 

Nonetheless, it is a pain, having to resort to such methods (and once you are successful with that, you would have to revert the registry change again to what it was originally). The problem seems to lie in the modified installer that we used.

I was now thinking, with the modified language system of the game (as of the recent 1.20.60.1020 update), there could now be a re-release of the base game, that is "friendlier". But we'll have to see what the future holds. One potential problem could be some confusion with the instructions, in that people download a new TS4 base game from us with the brand-new instructions, and then follow up with the Get to Work + Get together DLC, which still use the old system.

Nonetheless I believe it may be worth bringing up the discussion again, about a new base game.

I'm sorry you are having these difficulties with the game. WhatDidUJustCallMe?

Update 1.20.60.1020 is derived from the full sims4 torrent on a.o. Kickass.
I tried this 11.2 GB download and it works fine inspite of sometimes having to guess what to click on.
The crack is exactly the same as the one being used in the G4TW download of 1.20.60.1020
