Game Won't Load

Post by floralacnl on Fri 20 Jan 2017, 16:20

So I was told you can have the cracked version of the game, and the updated game. For some reason it won't work! Done everything as I last did, but now it wont work and keeps asking me to update. Should i just use my base game off origin? 


Thanks!



- The message I get why I try to open is -

"Unable to Start - The contents of your user data directory were created by a newer version of the Sims 4 and cannot be loaded. Please update via Origin to play"

When you play the Original game, your The Sims 4 folder in Documents/Electronic Arts is updated to version 1.26
Your downloded games are still in version 1.25.

You have 2 options:
1. Go to the folder Documents/Electronic Arts/The Sims 4 and delete the file GameVersion
2. Go to your installation folder for the Origin game, (probabaly C:\Program Files\Origin Games\The Sims 4) open folder Game, open folder Bin and copy the file Default to the same location of your installationfolder (probably C:\Program Files\The Sims 4\Game\Bin) for the pirated game.  Item exists, so overwrite.

Now start your game again.

Be aware: When you play with toddlers in your legal game, you can't see them in your pirated game and when you then save your pirated game, the earlier created toddlers are also gone from your Origin game.
