Edited Q: Is there a chance to update game?

Post by Amczek on Sun 08 Oct 2017, 01:32

EDIT: I solved a problem, still I cannot use some CC content due to game being not up-to-date (CC.
Is there a chance to update a game? Update 1.33.38. My game is currenty 1.29-something, but all EP working. 





________________________
I installed one zip after another, the sims are working but well... no Expansion packs it seems. 
I followed it carefully (I think?), also removing "Game" folder and overwriting it with last EP installed (SP probably too, I just started with The Sims 4). Copied all items from zips except for base game, since it was installed with setup. 


I use 64x Windows 7
My Sims 4 folder is on C://Program Files/The Sims4

Red numbers are order of installation. 
Second screen is how my The Sims 4 folder looks like

Just in case... All EP icons are showing up I don't know if they should be gray or colorful?

If you install the update only fix, it removes all your EPs.. it just only updates your game but you won’t have anything else besides the base game.

Hi @Amczek ,

Did you by chance delete GP05 folder from your installation list? It's from the Parenthood update. Try copy + pasting Parenthood - Fitness - Toddler's stuff again and see if your DLCs shows up.

Also, the game folders can be deleted, so that you won't get confused.

So when should I install it? Or not at all? 

I'll try reinstalling game, fortunately it doesn't take that long

No, there's no need to re-install everything even if you accidentally uses the ultimate fix, which I assume, you did not.

Just re-install Parenthood -> Fitness -> Toddler's Stuff and see if the DLCs are in again.

GP05 is inside the Parenthood .rar. If it's missing, perhaps the download was corrupted or incomplete?

In the end I reinstalled all but re-downloaded Parenthood. GP05 is now downloaded!  
Now it seems all EP and GP folders are OK but game is not starting. It asks me if I want to run application as Administrator (TS4_x64.exe) and that's that, sometimes process is visible in Task Manager but only for 5-10 seconds tops, and then disappears.

This time I haven't applied content of "TS4_UpdateOnlyFix_1-33-38-1020.rar" , only "Error Code 3" fix (so I could switch language to Polish). 

When I re-installed TS4 base game only it worked, then I made everything like in the Installation Guide but it's not working o.o

Try renaming your Sims 4 folder in Documents to say sims4backup and then place this new game folder. Remember to either delete or rename the Game folder first.

Alternatively, you can try to restart your pc and then run the game again if the above does not work.

I restarted PC but did as it was stated in topic. Thank you Smile It finally works! 
Double thank you because now EPs also work!


The only problem now is that game is not updated (I downloaded a sim but "it was made with newer version of the game") but it works so that's the most important thing.  Good job!

Hi @Amczek ,

If the sim was made with a 1.34 version, then yes, unfortunately we (1.33) can't use/placed it in the world. You can use ZLOrigin to update your game however, but of late, I've seen a couple of connection errors. You can read it more at the topic below:

http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t30092-zlorigin-made-simple



OH! I just read your edited post. Your game is 1.29? It should be 1.33 now, especially since the new game folder is for 1.33. To check your game version, you can go to Documents\EA\The Sims 4 and open up GameVersion.txt.
If your version is already 1.33 however, I'd suggest to wait till the next crack comes, rather than updating it via ZLOrigin.
