Combining bought DLC's with G4TW DLC's and have access to the Gallery

Post by Tarac on Sun 20 Aug 2017, 14:40

You can combine bought DLC's with downloaded G4TW expansions.

Step 1:
When your bought game is still located in C:\Program Files (x86)\Origin Games\The Sims 4, delete the folder The Sims 4, else go to Step 2, 3rd line
Open Origin -> Application Settings -> Installs & Saves -> Game library location.
Now change that location to f.e. C:\Program Files (x86)\    (Do not add The Sims 4 there)
Of course you're free to select any folder on your computer as long as it is not called Electronic Arts, Origin Games or ZLOrigin Games.

Step 2:
Download your via Origin bought games again
The installation folder will be as chosen earlier
When finished, copy the folder Game to your desktop

Step 3:
Now add the G4TW downloads in this order:
Get to Work
Get Together
City Living
Toddler/Vampires
Parenthood
Now delete the folder Game
Install Fitness - this will also contain a new folder Game

Step 4:
Rename the folder Game to Game cracked
Copy the folder Game from your desktop to the installation folder (see step 2, 3rd line)
You now have a folder Game + a folder Game cracked

Step 5:
From the folder Game\Bin copy the file Default.ini and copy it to the same location in Game cracked (overwrite existing file)
Make shortcuts from Game\Bin\TS4.exe (and/or) TS4_x86.exe for your desktop
Do the same with Game cracked but give these shortcuts a different name, f.e. TS4 cracked.
Repeat the first line of step 5 every time a new update/patch (version) is available via Origin to avoid the "unable to start, higher version, update via origin" error

Now you are ready to play your bought game via the shortcut of Game (with access to the Gallery) and play your G4TW DLC's via the shortcut of Game cracked.
Of course you must make sure that Origin is not active on your computer when you play Game cracked.

Warning:
It is advisable to use Game only to access the gallery or to update with new patches as items used in Game cracked will not be visible in Game and will disappear when you save your game.
So play with Game cracked !!!

Advantage of this system is that you can still access the Gallery and Origin may still update your game without rendering your pirated DLC's worthless.
