Legit Game, Toddlers and Cracks. [SOLVED]

Post by DarkAuthor on Fri 13 Jan 2017, 02:07

So, I have a question, and I had a very hard time finding the correct answer.  I'm sorry if its dead obvious and I missed it somewhere, but I did try...

If I buy the sims 4 and update it to the latest version (the one with toddlers) could I then install all the pirated DLC on top of it and run the game with everything?  I don't care about being able to use the gallery.

Thank you for taking the time to read this.

Thank you for the answer, but, why not?  From what I've been able to find, you CAN install pirated DLC on top of an existing origin sims 4 installation.  It even says so in the guide.

My concern is mostly due to the crack being version 1.25 and the game now being version 1.26, but couldn't I use the same trick I have seen others mention, (moving the game version files around) to make the game think its a lower version than it is without losing any content?

 Wait, this can be done? Could you provide me the link on the topic in this forum, please? This is news to me!

Sure, step #3 here specifically says it can be done (installing pirated stuff packs on a legit base game).  The rest of what I'm asking, I'm not sure about, though.


And this is the place where it talks about making a pirated game think its updated by copying a file from the legit one.  It doesn't really update it though, but my question is why wouldn't it also work in reverse?

It won't work because you don't have the actual dlc. It's pirated so, it won't work with legit base game.

Hello,

I'm afraid you've misunderstood a number of things. The first guide indeed mentions you can "install pirated DLC on top of legit games". But if the legit game is on a higher patch, and you apply pirated DLC that is on a lower patch version, then your installation gets "rolled back". In this case it would mean your overall installation is still on patch 1.25.136.1020. A.k.a. without the toddler update.

The current cracks only support game version 1.25, and using them with the 1.26 game files from Origin wouldn't work.

The second guide that you linked to was written from a user whose native language is not English, and thereby a few things have been worded in a rather unlucky way, that can easily be misunderstood by people unfamiliar with how TS4 works. Essentially, with the procedure you don't have to rename folders under Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 4 anymore when you switch between playing the Origin & cracked versions. That is where your savefiles and mods/CC are stored. It's a nice little trick, but it has nothing whatsoever to do with updating a cracked game.

The only way to get new content for cracked games is to wait for new scene updates.

Thank you Ghostman!

I was actually just getting ready to come back and post that I had tested it and it did indeed roll back to the previous patch level.  Oh well, I didn't pay full price for the base game so it wasn't that big of a hit and its still nice to have (I was meaning to buy it anyway).

Yes, for example you could still use the Gallery. Smile  Was there anything else you wanted to know for now, or can we close the topic and mark the problem as "solved"?

I would say "solved". lol

In all honesty, I kind of had fun messing around with it, even if it didn't work out in the end.  Thank you, again!
