How do I keep both?

Post by Summerbear5 on Wed 25 Jan 2017, 18:54

So how do I keep both copies of the game and the ability to switch between them?

I want to keep the official origin game so I'm able to check out new content and game updates, without having to redownload the entire game each time...
However I also want to have the full cracked version easily accessible when I want to play with expansions and game packs, without having to constantly uninstalling the original and unzipping the g4tw game folder.

I thought I seen something on here where you could have both copies available and the ability to switch and play either one, but now I can't find the post.

Hello again,

First of all, you will need to keep the Origin game and the cracked one in SEPARATE install locations, which normally shouldn't be a problem. As for the rest, you should check out this here:

Read the entire post there, and let us know if you want/need to know anything else beyond that. Good luck! Smile

Is everything clear about the issue? Very Happy  Or was there anything else you wanted to know for the time being?

Hey, I tried doing this and my legit TS4 uninstalled itself, and the pirated one kept asking me to log into Origin. 

I put the updated (toddler patch) game files into the cracked version, but the cracked version was in programfiles/origingames/thesims4

And the pirated was in programfiles/thesims4 ... Is that the issue you mean when you say they can't be in the same install folder?

Hello and sorry for the belated reply,

Your issues seems to be entirely different, and you should open a new topic for your issue(s), if you haven't done so already. Thanks in advance! Smile
