How do I switch back over to Origin?

Post by Deadbydawn on Tue 28 Mar 2017, 20:10

Hello so I just wanted to play with Toddlers for awhile on The Sims 4.

But I want to be able to do this without having to re-downloading G4TW Cracked versions of the game.

Is there a way I can take out G4TW downloads and use Origins version and then when I am done with Origins version be able to put G4TW version back in to play with all the dlc again? 

I tried looking but couldn't find anything and I feel a little stupid for asking so any answers would be great, thank you and have a lovely day! Hail King Tea!

Hi,

You can have both on your computer as they use separate install folders.
i.e. G4TW version installs in "C:\Program Files (x86)\The Sims 4" and Origin version installs in "C:\Program Files (x86)\Origin Games\The Sims 4"
The only thing is though, you have to delete the 'GameVersion' file (My Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 4) whenever you use the legit version as they both share this folder. You won't be able to play the G4TW version otherwise.

Good luck!
