Sims 4 Mac infinite household loading screen base game.

Post by Ghosty5643 on Sun 09 Jul 2017, 10:45

So i followed all the steps on the mac wine guide however when I start up the game i can choose my sims customise them choose starting location/house but then i click to move in and then the game runs normally like it's doing something but it is stuck in an infinite loading screen where the diamond keeps rotating and the text keeps changing as if it is working fine.

The steps I took installing JUST the ultimate fix NO DLC whatsoever 

1) I copied pasted then hit replace all for every folder and it's contents from the ultimate fix meaning that from the ultimate fix I copy pasted all that was in say the client folder into the corresponding client folder in the Wine folder

2) did this for every file 

3) Game could open but then it would go to the problem listed above

1. Do NOT apply the update-only-fix
2. Install base game, then copy folders from Get To Work, Get Together, City Living, Toddlers/Vampires, Parenthood, Fitness. (without playing in between)
3. Delete the folder Game from your install folder
4. Download THIS FOLDER ,extract with Winrar and place folder Game in your install folder
5. Move, not copy, your installation folder The Sims 4 out of the folder Electronic Arts


Note: The Update-only-fix is meant for players wanting to play with the base game only. So this fix wipes out all your DLC's !

Hi,

You can follow step 3 onwards. Basically, you can delete the Game folder, then either 1) Copy + paste the ultimate fix or 2) Download from the link provided. Always test the game with a 'fresh' sims 4 folder in Documents.

I tried doing that like i deleted the game folder from the (show package contents -> Program files -> EA -> Sims 4 -> moved to the trash) then i copied pasted every single file from the ultimate fix v1.31 into the corresponding files in the wine wrapper then copied pasted the game folder from the ultimate fix into the "sims 4" wrapper folder where i had deleted the original.

I lauched the game successfully but then I could not choose a household/a starting area it would just be blank all the options and other things were there (eg Music was playing the options bar was displayed everything else yada yada) but the actual options to click on a starting area were not there.

Your install folder is/was Program files -> EA -> Sims 4
What happens if you move Sims 4 out of the folder EA ?

Just to clarify that program files ->EA -> Sims 4 was from the wine shortcut on my desktop i created then. There's another folder in the Library that is titled EA which contains all the save files mods and so on and so forth I'll try removing the "sims 4" folder out of both or either

Hello,

I just looked again at the install guide (included in the Update-Only Ultimate Fix) for confirmation, and it is mentioned in there that prior to applying the Fix, you should rename your "Game"-folder inside the installation. So yes, you can play with the Update-Only Fix, and there is no need for further DLC. Also, it is mentioned that you should move the installation from...

C:\Program files (x86)\Electronic Arts\The Sims 4  to...   C:\Program files (x86)\The Sims 4. You don't need to touch the folder under Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 4 for the purposes of correct installation.

Sorry to hear you are having these difficulties, and it can indeed be tricky especially if you're doing this the first time. But then again: most if not all the information you need is included in those little .txt files that we put in every torrent.
