Accidentally used the Ultimate Fix, and lost all my packs.. what now? [SOLVED]

Post by tgogel on Sun 11 Jun 2017, 16:10

Title says it all.

Basically I wanted to switch from the ZClient version to the G4TW version.. so I followed what I saw on another topic and just deleted ZLOrigin, ZClient, Origin Games folders.. all of them. Then I updated the pirated game with the Toddler patch, went into my usual Sims 4 folder and there was no TS4.exe. I read on another topic that applying the Ultimate Fix helps with that, so I did. I didn't realise that it resets the game to the base game...

So what now? Do I just have to download everything again?

Hello,


Unfortunately you need to re-install the packs again since the latest update-only fix deletes the DLCs installed.

And please use the patch found here

this is the last thing to install. Remember to turn off the antivirus and firewall before installing.

Something I have been theorizing only very recently (but didn't really get the opportunity to test it, due to being 'otherwise engaged' in real-life at the moment). If you accidentally applied the Update-Only Ultimate fix, try applying just the files here:
http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t23706-latest-available-no-origin-files-for-the-sims-4-version-1-30-105-1010

See if they make your DLC show up again.

If I'm not mistaken, the DLC disappear because of the modified RldOrigin.ini file used in the Update-Only Ultimate fix. Applying the 'original' RldOrigin.ini might fix the issue already, without having to re-apply all the DLCs.

Ahh thank you, this worked perfectly!! It wouldn't respond the first time I started the game, but after I closed it and opened it a second time, it worked. It said it was "downloading some uninstalled packs" but I just continued playing and everything was the same as before. I'm going to download Parenthood now, thank you so much!
