I have asked my teammate to review that Russian page. My own knowledge of TS4 and any problems that can arise is way too limited to have a look at it myself.

I understand that thank you though! I don't wanna bring my hopes up or anything but I'm excited for this game in general like the hype hasn't died down for me yet somehow.  Hail King Tea!

The only hope I can offer at this time is, that it will be cracked eventually. We just can't tell you when that will be.

Updating your game to 1.24 is very simple but it won't give you Backyard and City Living.
Logical of course, when you f.e. only possess the legal base game of the Sims 4, you can update to 1.24 but it won't give you access to the DLC's.

Open the folder Game / Bin
Open the File Default with notepad and replace the text by the undermentioned and save the file.

In the meantime I looked at the Russian site in question that Edin pointed me to. The procedure described there involves using modified Origin files, and logging into (hacked?) Origin accounts, in order to play the new DLC. I don't understand Russian sufficiently to get into the technical details of modifying Origin. Apparently, you "only" have to download these modified files and then replace your legit Origin files with them.

What concerns me most, is this: so you obviously need to log into already-existing Origin accounts. How exactly were these credentials obtained? And if you post these usernames + passwords in public, wouldn't the average reader hastily try logging into these accounts and change the account's password, so that he or she can have the account only for themselves then?

From a purely technical standpoint the guide looks interesting, and it may have worked at some point in the past. But someone with the technical knowledge to modify Origin in such a way must also know that posting login credentials in public just isn't going to work, if the procedure hinges on this very detail. Even if we assume that all readers of that guide are nice little kids (or adults) who absolutely would never ever try and take over these accounts, what if the legit account owner decided to change his or her password at some point? Don't use that guide/procedure!

@Saffirah666, for the future, if you want to send something to the team look for the green e-mail buttons in the profiles. You can send (private) messages that way as well. As of currently, me and @SeoY have these e-mail buttons activated, so you have that avenue of communication as well. Please don't post these things in public, though. Smile

P.S. I forgot, you can only use this e-mail contact form when you are logged into the Forum.

My Russian is not as good as it used to be (haha).
From what I understood is that you switch off the internet and then login (off-line) in a modified Origin account (more or less in line with the old 3DM-solution of a dummy-account).
Unfortunately I cannot figure out exactly how this must be done.
Neither the Dutch, nor the English nor the German translation made me any wiser.

Ooh that makes sense I didn't know it had to do anything with that. Maybe the credentials were obtained by willing people or even hacked into [no one knows I guess except those guys] Thank you for looking into it though didn't 100% occur to me that people are gonna be a bit greedy and change the pw/the owner of the account would change it just to do it. 

I hope everyone's Sunday is going well and hello lurkers!

I dont think anyone but the accounts owner could change the password, anyway that seems like too much work. I'll wait for a proper crack, if it ever comes out. Its not like ts4 is a good game or anything. I can wait.

I'm not sure if the "security question" in Origin (needed for changing the password) is activated by default. But if it isn't - or if a user is too oblivious of that - then the person who has the password can make all the changes they want...

Well, no. It seems like a pretty bad idea, and we will have no part in possibly putting your system at risk, sorry WhatDidUJustCallMe?
Besides, I don't have it anymore Sad

Well, I guess that depends on who you ask Razz
That is a user-suggested option, and not supported by the G4TW-team. Try at your own risk. 
If you need to try something, look here first, and note that neither one of these options will get you City Living.

I looked at the link, though it seems quite useless to me. I already have that version, what I want is an updated version (version 1.24) and wanted to know if what Tarac suggested would work with the cracked game. Thank you though Smile

Well, no. From what I understand, it would only create the illusion of an updated version if you wanted to use cracked DLC with a legit base...

The method can be helpful if you have a legit TS4 base game on Origin, and then it apparently helps avoid renaming the folders under Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 4. But that is not what you wanted it seems.

We will have to wait for a proper scene release, concerning the actual 1.24 update files/crack + Backyard stuff + City Living.

Also, about your question before (concerning the Russian site), I did read it. Smile  But I deliberately didn't answer, and Edin eventually got ahead of me on that. The reason I did not, and still don't want to send the link to other people, is because legit Origin accounts might have been hacked here. And I personally wouldn't want to spread this type of site. God knows how many people have seen it already, during the short time window that the original link was posted on here. Yes, I have that kind of decency to not take advantage of people who potentially got their accounts hacked.

The Russian site really does work if you follow the steps carefully. With the upgrade + city living + backyard stuff but it crashes and lags a lot so it'd still be better to wait.And hopefully we won't have to wait until Christmas Why God.

Re: The Sims 4 City Living.

Hello guys, I also decided to finally join this forum after following this thread. I think I have some insight that may be helpful, but I'm kind of a dope, so maybe it's not that helpful, hahaha. ANYway, it's mostly about that "skidrowreloaded" website. It's actually where I personally get all my sims 4 downloads and most games I can't personally afford at the moment, (I got fallout 4 and rise of the tomb raider from there for instance). I'm kind of just a dabbler when it comes to "warez" and computers in general, but I've never noticed a problem with any game I've picked up from there, whether it be the torrent or direct download option. Definitely no surveys either. It seems to have a large userbase as there are always a TON of comments under each popular release (so not like 1 or 2 really fake sounding comments). Funnily enough, basically all of them seem to think that the site IS operated by Skidrow, lol. Most comments are stuff like "thanks Skidrow!!! Please do [recent game] next!!". And of course, lots of feverish requests for the newest sims 4 stuff. Another funny thing is that people seem to think it's one person that cracks the games and also runs that website, lol. I for one am super curious about who REALLY owns the site and where they get the releases from. At least with the Sims 4 games, it's typically the Reloaded releases they upload. But they seem to upload releases from just about anyone (Codex and Conspiracy seem to be common on there). The installation screens have the funky music and ascii art and everything. I don't think my memory is that reliable on this, but I could have sworn that the last Sims 4 update they uploaded was also available there before it was on any popular torrent sites that I noticed.

Now, I can't remember if it was in this thread or a reddit comment, but as for the rumor that this website hides stuff like bitcoin miners in the game files, I find that concerning. I'm actually unclear on how to confirm that there is nothing like that hidden in here. But, my system runs normally while running the games, and there are no wacky processes running, and my network traffic looks normal. Other than that I don't know how to check for malicious stuff in torrented games though. Hum what else... skidrowreloaded DOES however run malicious ads periodically. You know, the type that open pre-minimized popups that give you the "are you sure you want to navigate away?" window when you close them, heh. I'm not personally sure how dangerous being exposed to these sneaky ads are, as I've not gotten an anti-virus warning from them (I use Avast). They're certainly very sketchy though. But as far as I know, these ads are the sketchiest thing about getting games from skidrowreloaded.

Hummm what else can I add... I've never personally compared the Sims 4 releases I've gotten on that site with any of the ones on torrent sites or G4TW, but I just love um. They work properly, probably better than the official game clients for all I know (heh), and they bypass origin completely. I remember the first release of Sims 4 I got required some kind of offline origin spoofy business that was real annoying. But the releases I get from skidrowreloaded have nothing like that, and I think now a large chunk of the expansions/dlc have been compiled into one "deluxe version".

Baaaa... so in short, if anyone is trying their luck with the "skidrowreloaded" site (all one word like that, not some other one with a dash in the middle or anything), I have never PERSONALLY had issues with viruses with them, and I PERSONALLY really enjoy the releases from that site, and I don't PERSONALLY think that the real skidrow OR reloaded have anything to do with the site, but I also think that who ever does operate it AT LEAST is not as sketchy or malicious as the other pretendsies warez group sites. I trust this website for now, but I DON'T fully expect that the site will remain "safe" forever. For all I know the owners don't care about it that much, so maybe the second they miss a payment the site will fall into new ownership or something and be just like those 100% malware sites. As for when the newest Sims 4 stuff will be available? I DON'T think that any "release date" from this site is reliable. I think it comes when it comes.It seems that whoever cracks the games or procures the games may have a habit of waiting until the next stuff pack. I waited FOREVER for dine out! And then no backyard stuff as of yet! I don't think they do this out of spite for sims fans, but for whatever reason I think there is a trend of waiting to release a handful of sims 4 content at once. So I'm not expecting skidrowreloaded to have a download before December. I don't think the people who operate this site care about or even pay attention to what any of their typically rather naive fans say, positive or negative.

WOO! Sorry for that novel! I would love to hear more about Tarac's experience though as I believe they mentioned something about 40 infections!? That's certainly worrisome. Was that from the torrent or could it have been from one of the not so nice large file download services they also use? I certainly don't download every game the site uploads so I can't truthfully vouch for the safety of all of them.

One of the precautions I take is to always download on an external HDD connected to an old PC equipped with anti-virus and Spyhunter. (In both cases original and paid versions)
I also use Peerblock when downloading torrents.
Before I start a download I scan the computer and have Spyhunter active during and after the download.
When I have checked the PC again I start installing the download. Only when after the installation the PC is still clean and the program is running OK I upload it to one of my websites.

Most of the infections are not in the actual download but will be placed whilst downloading or on opening the downloadsite.

EDIT: I noticed that G4TW sometimes use Mediafire to upload.
Mediafire puts malware on your computer, (adware.Wajam) a pretty nasty spy and not easily to remove.
The first sign of malware is that when you download from Mediafire immediately a new tab will be displayed in your browser with a casino game or something simular.

In addition, the data collected is generally non-identifiable. Wajam may have some side effects like slow computer performance and annoying pop-up ads.

I've just informed an Admin of G4TW about this problem.
Let me make it clear: This is not by intention of G4TW, they certainly were not aware.

Are you sure about that Mediafire thing? I've never heard of that. I download a lots of things from Mediafire and I never had a single problem

I tested it various times.
Had a clean machine, download from Mediafire and had the Wajam infection.
Cleaned machine again, tested, no infections, downloaded from Mediafire, infected !

Most probably you won't notice the infection straight away, but during downloading:
Did you get an extra tab in your browser with a casinogame or sometimes some pornografic sites for girls that like to meet you ?
Or how to earn a lot of money ?
