Problems opening The Sims 4 Wineskin app

Post by amxlia21 on Fri 12 Aug 2016, 16:40

Hello! I just downloaded the sims 4 base game and the get to work and get together and the ultimate fix using wineskin, but now when i try to double-click the app on my desktop it just opens with the custom wineskin options (install software, set screen options, advanced, and quit). How do i open the game to play? Or did i make a mistake when add the expansion packs or ultimate fix?



//EDIT

When using wineskin, I had already created the "The Sims 4" wrapper. Once that is done:








1) Right-click on the wrapper and select "Show Package Contents"
There should be 3 items: "Contents" "drive_c", and "Wineskin.app"








2) Double-click on "Wineskin.app" and it will open with 4 different options.








3) Click on "Advanced" and where it says "Windows EXE" click on browse.








4) From here, it will either show you a list of different Windows applications (EXE) on your computer or you will have to manually choose your game file. Look for the title of your game and make sure it is EXE.








5) Click "Test Run" at the bottom on the Wineskin Advanced tab and it should work! Smile
