64 bit vs 32 bit?

Post by Beatoften on Thu 29 Dec 2016, 17:55

Downloaded City Living and gave these instructions a read: http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t21806-must-read-how-to-install-the-sims-4-correctly#146695

I realized I have my game in the Programs(x86) folder instead of the normal Program folder. Is the difference really that simple? I get 32-bit because of file location? If so, would moving the game into the 64bit folder be as simple as copying it over?

Hello,

Yes, file location is the key here. If you want to use the 64-bit version of the game, move the entire "The Sims 4" (!!!)-folder from C:\Program files (x86), under C:\Program files instead. And then use the TS4_x64.exe to run the game...
