ZLOrigin off-line for the Sims 4.

How to use Zclient and ZlOrigin as an easy downloadagent for the Sims 4 or play off-line

Zclient + ZLOrigin are an easy and safe solution to download all DLC's.
No downloads of all kinds of torrents required and you can choose which DLC's you want to install. F.e. you hate Vampires but you still want Toddlers (impossible with the torrents, it's all or nothing)

Some people do not like the use of ZLOrigin because they must always be online via Zclient.
Well, you can easily solve that problem
If you have not yet downloaded The Sims 4 + all DLC's via Zclient/ZLOrigin, then do so.

  1. When your installfolder is within a folder Origin Games or Electronic Arts, MOVE the folder The Sims 4 to another location
    In my example it's moved to an external drive Z and a folder Test Origin, but you're free to choose any disk or folder name.
  2. Download the latest crack (at this moment Fitness), unpack with Winrar and rename the folder Game to Game Crack
  3. Now copy the folder Game Crack to the folder The Sims 4 on your new location (see item 1)
  4. Your new installfolder now has a folder Game as well as a folder Game Crack.
  5. Make new shortcuts from TS4.exe and/or TS4_x64.exe for your desktop from Game as well as Game Crack
  6. You can now choose to play via ZLOrigin/zclient online via the folder Game or offline via the folder Game Crack
  7. You can still update your game via ZLOrigin if you wish.


The contents of your user data directory were created by a newer version of The Sims 4 and cannot be loaded. Please update your game via Origin to play

As the cracked version and the ZLOrigin version are not always the same you will get an error "unable to start .... Update via Origin"

To solve this problem you can either:
Delete the file GameVersion from the folder User\Your username\Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 4 and repeat this every time the error shows up.


Copy the folder Default.ini from the Folder Game\bin to the folder Game-crack\Bin. You must repeat that after every new update of the game via ZLOrigin.

Mod edit: moved to the right section.
