ZLOrigin disconnects my internet.

Post by miseriabello5 on Thu 19 Oct 2017, 19:42

I have been trying to redownload The Sims 4 through ZLOrigin but every time it will get about 15% through and disconnects the internet. If it happened just once there wouldn't be an issue but every few % it does it over and over again.
It did not do this the first time I had used it. Now that I would like to reinstall it just keeps disconnecting me and I am forced to restart my router in order to get everything working again. Why would this program have an effect on something like this? 

Has anyone else had this type of issue and is there a solution or should I just give up hope of ever using ZClient again?

Hello @miseriabello5,

Your "regular" (browser-based) downloads and the torrent downloads are working fine, I assume?

Yes, sir! This is the only program I have ever had an issue with. I have used it before but I messed something up (The game was glitchy so I tried a "repair game" option and everything got ruined), but I have since then realized what was wrong and fixed the problem but now it will not let me redownload the game.

I had a simular problem with ZLOrigin.
I thought it was installing in directory A but in fact it installed in directory B and consequently there was nothing to Repair or Re-download.
Search your computer for the file ZUpdater32.dll and see where located.

It will not even let me download the game in general so there is no file to locate. It disconnects my internet connection before it ever finishes.

Hi there,
How fast is your Internet? Mine disconnects frequently but I know that is because of an atrociously slow internet connection. Takes ages to update etc.

I have never had any issues until I tried to download this game. My internet does not mess up any other time. It is at about 51mbps. There should be no reason for it to just disconnect. I tried to spend an entire day downloading and resetting my router constantly but even after the downloads did not work properly and something went wrong.

Have you tried to delete ZLOrigin by opening the folder ZLOrigin in Program Files and clicking unins000.exe ?
Then re-install ZLOrigin.

Ok, go to settings on ZLOrigin - Advanced and activate Secure Download, its a bit slower but it could help.

If it's not a state secret to ask (and for you OK to post in public here)...what is your Internet Service Provider? It's not likely, but from reading your first post, I suspected that your ISP could have "tampered" somehow with your internet. See this:

I suppose we could try doing some research, even if we can't come up with a solution immediately. 

Another thing I brought up back then: what if we - in theory - downloaded an entire "The Sims 4" folder from zlOrigin, and provided it here as a torrent? And kept up doing so until the end of the game's lifespan? Would such a folder be "usable" for people using zlOrigin? Not that we are (at least at present moment) really willing to go forward with that idea, but just as a thought.

Looking for bad joke

When you have ZLOrigin already such a torrent is useless. Every time a new DLC is coming out, you'll have to upload/download over 22 GB again and again. Also downloading from ZLOrigin is just as fast as via a torrent with a lot of seeders. (I download the complete Sims 4 serie in approx 30 minutes from ZLOrigin)

For those not using ZLOrigin it might be quite useful.
Start f.e. with base upto and incl. Toddler Stuff in 1 download. All problems with changing Game folders, moving out of Electronic Arts and 3 es solved.
I suggest such a download would be in .iso format as extracting such large files with Winrar takes too long. In Windows nowadays you no longer need programs like Daemon or Poweriso to mount an iso.
Before you upload the torrent, change the folder Game from the ZLOrigin version to a cracked version (or add an additional folder Game_cracked).

Well, in this instance the OP and some others don't have zlOrigin, at the end of the day. Regarding these (rare) cases my question was more of a theoretical nature, but yes. I figured so much, that in practice it's probably not going to be worth the effort for us to keep re-uploading large chunks of data.

As I said before, it would be extremely helpfull when there was just 1 torrent for the base game upto and incl. Toddler Stuff. It would solve at least 50% of the questions asked on this forum.
Even 1 torrent for Vampires/Toddlers/Bowling -> Toddler Stuff could solve a lot of problems.
The "must read" guide is (for some people) too complicated.
Sadly, many people don't want to read large amounts of text, they'd rather see it all compressed to 1 emoj, lol.

For the none ZLOrigin users such a download would make sense
