Origin opening.

Post by cows5evah on Sat 25 Feb 2017, 10:09

I followed the guide below
but now when I switch to go back to the cracked version it opened Origin and loads the Legit game.
How do I fix this?

//EDIT

OLD QUESTION:

http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t24433-i-have-both-origin-g4tw-versions-of-sims-4-how-can-i-manage-the-documents-folder

I read this but I have a few questions just to be sure.

1. Do I need to rename my cracked folder before I install the legit version of the game? I'm not sure if I need to do this before installing the legit copy.

2. Does downloading the legit game while having the pirated version on my computer, put the Origin account at risk of being banned? My best friend has offered to let me download from their Origin and I don't want to put their account at risk. 

I'm sorry if these have obvious answers, I just want to be 100% sure before doing anything.  DedicatedToLorilihim

Hello,

You rename the folders under Documents\Electronic Arts before you play either the cracked game or the legit game. I know this sounds complicated, but there is no easier way to phrase this. Read the guide again, very slowly. If you are already having difficulties with that, then I don't recommend you using this method at all. Toward the end of the guide there are links to some of @Tarac's posts. There are other ways to bypas this difficulty, like creating a separate Windows user-account to play one of the games.

Also, there is no way of knowing for Origin what you have installed. I have tons of cracked games, and also lots of Origin stuff. While I don't use Origin anymore that often, there never was a problem.

I can't say much about the glitch you're having with the dying, other than suggesting you ensure the MC Command Center you are using also works for version 1.25.136.1020 (the version of the cracked game).

Also, I merged your posts. Please keep all dicussions in just one thread, unless you are told otherwise. Smile  Have a look at the FAQ to learn more about general navigation & posting issues.

When you click on your profile in Origin you can select Installations & Applications.
Then select Installations and saved games
There you can change the directory under Location Game Directory.
By default that is C:\Program Files (x86)\Origin Games (I've changed mine to D:\Program Files (x86)\Origin Games.

Your pirated games should be under Program Files(x86)\The Sims 4
Now you can safely use both versions, of course still with the conflicts in the folder The Sims 4 in user\Documents\Electronic Arts.

Thank you. I'll give this a try later.

The "Origin problem" has only 4 reasons:

1. Origin IS active somewhere on your computer.
2. The crack for the Sims 4 has been de-activated by your anti-virus
3. Origin has overwritten your pirated games
4. You haven't installed all DLC's and/or have placed the incorrect crack or incorrectly placed the corect crack

is there anyway to fix this? I uninstalled origin and it wants me to reinstall so I'm assuming somehow it replaced my pirated version.  No shit, Sherlock.

I followed everything in the guide carefully.

No, G4TW has no all-on-one.
They have Base Game + Get to Work + Get Together + City Living and these include all other DLC's (except toddlers and Vampires)

Sorry for the delay,

I'm probably going to cut back on posting in those Sims-sections. Which guide "broke it"? The fact that Origin opens up when you try running the cracked game (if I understood correctly) is because you did not properly configure your anti-virus and/or Windows Defender exclusions properly. Sometimes you may even have to re-configure the stuff because some programs have a tendency to not immediately accept new input. This guide here can help maybe as an introduction, although it's meanwhile a bit outdated:
http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t18501-unable-to-start-initialization-error-at-startup-updated-on-11-9-2015

Also, the format of the downloads doesn't matter for your problem. You would get the same issue with those "all-in-one installers" as well.

Not all "all-in-one" downloads have this problem.
As the Sims 4 do not need an entry in the register, I created an "all-in-one" in iso-format whereby you start the game from the iso in a virtual drive.
Origin, nor your anti-virus, can write to and/or alter that iso. Surely, when Origin is active on your machine, you'll still get the "Origin not running" error.
As I'm performing a lot of expiriments in The Sims 4, adjusting files/folders it's a helpful tool to restore such files/folders to their default values.

Is it ideal ?
* No, the size of the download is massive (approx 20 GB upto and incl. City Limits)
* Changing the language becomes difficult and makes the crack again vulnerable to your AV as you'll have to copy the contents of the iso to a folder on your PC to alter the file RldOrigin.ini.
* With every new DLC a new "all-in-one" must be up- and downloaded and the size of the file will increase even more.

For the time being the G4TW system is - in my view - still the best. (maybe combine Get to Work and Get Together to 1 pack of 5.95 GB)
That said, maybe some more emphasis should be given to the advantages of the 64-bits game as you don't have to worry about the AV.
Strangely enough the file RldOrigin.dll is regarded as a "virus" whilst RldOrigin_x64.dll is considered to be "safe".

You can bypass that error by deleting the GameVersion.txt under Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 4. To put it VERY simply, this error shows up because your computer still thinks you are running the Origin-game of TS4.

If you read the guide that I linked to intially, this problem is exactly what I spoke about in that thread. I acknowledge this can be difficult, but there is nothing wrong with the guide. You have to understand and apply the procedure correctly. That this is not everybody's cup of tea is understandable, but for the future: if you are having such tremendous difficulties, then either don't install two separate TS4 games on the same computer, or use an alternative method. Like the topics of @Tarac here:
