My game won't start after the Cat and Dog DLC

Post by Bakandasama on Mon 13 Nov 2017, 17:49

Hello Smile

So, I installed the cat and dog DLC today, and I downloaded all the other DLC's before, without any issues. (the main game, go to work, Go to the city, all of them.)

And, as always, i drag and drop the new folders of the cat and dog DLC in my Sims 4 file (i changed the name of the file just in case), with changing the name of the ancient "Game" folder, everything the "how to install" file told me.
But when I started running the game as an administrator, there is a window opening telling me to shut down Origin or that some files are damaged or corrupted and needed to be repaired, but Origin was off and I even stopped the Wifi.

I tried to change the folders many times, i restarted my laptop, the folders were in the exceptions files, i drag and drop all the files again, and I still can't play the game.

Any solution ? Smile

Edit : I checked my Mods and updated them, i read all the others topics, my old game file was renamed before being removed- still not working...

Thanks to all of you for releasing the DLC's so fast ! Yess, aye lieeke! Wink




Mod edit: moved to the right section.

Don't forget to delete the current folder Game in your installation folder The Sims 4 before applying the latest DLC

Well, i usually change the name folder from "Game" to "Game_", install the DLC and then erase the "Game_" folder WhatDidUJustCallMe? I don't know if it's the right way to do this, but i like to keep the old folder in case the new one doesn't work.

So, i re-downloaded the DLC, i did the extraction with Utorrent, opened it with WinRar, installed it like usual, and i still have this text telling me there is some missing or damaged data. Everything was downloaded without issues, so f***ing WHY.

Edit : I put the EP04 out of the Sims 4 folder, so i can run the game smoothly but there is the "Downloaded package" text showing up, telling me i'm gonna have a notification once i fully downloaded it. For everyone having issues with the DLC, put your EP04 folder out so you can still play while waiting for an update or a fix !
