Sims 4 download links not working?

Post by taterpaige on Wed 18 Jan 2017, 20:51

Ive read the tutorial but I can't even download any expansions or anything, when I click on the torrent link all it does is open an internet explorer page to my downloads, and when i click on the magnet link nothing happens. Is there some thing i'm doing wrong or need to fix? Thanks

Hello and welcome to the Forum @taterpaige,

Have a look at the guide about torrenting, to learn how this works:

Good luck, and feel free to post back here once you understood everything, or if you need more help along the way! Smile

After installing all DLCs Origin says I have to update game in order to play

Post by taterpaige on Thu 19 Jan 2017, 23:54

So i have origin, and i already purchased the base game but i have turned off automatic updates. I downloaded and installed first get to work, then get together and then lastly City living, without a problem but it appears impossible to run the sims 4 without origin(which i had completely off while installing all DLCs). I cannot run the sims 4 without updating it says origin. Is there anyway to bypass this? 
Thanks!

When you last updated or played your original game it became version 1.26. (with toddlers)
Pirated games are still on version 1.25 (no toddlers)

Go to the folder Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 4 and delete the file GameVersion.

@taterpaige, unless you are told otherwise, please keep ALL discussion about the same game in only one thread. As for the new issue, the topic here describes a possible way to deal with this phenomenon:

I suggest you read through this topic. Smile
