[SOLVED] Can't play households after Cats & Dogs and latest update

Post by Redeim on Wed 03 Jan 2018, 21:24

Hi. I've been having an issue with actually playing Sims after downloading Cats and Dogs, and it persisted despite getting the latest update. I tried deleting the dxgi.dll, dxgi.ini, dxgi.log files that someone mentioned in the update thread, but that didn't work either. No matter if I make a household with pets or not, once I place them in a home, they can't be played. I took screenshots to show what happens.

The loading button seen from the map flashes, but never loads, no matter how long I wait. Once it does that, I can no longer enter the household, either. I'd really like to avoid having to re-download everything if it can be avoided. \:

I'm one of the many that spends more time creating sims and houses but I still want to play my Sims game.
(Also, no matter when or how often I press save, when I return to the game, that save file is gone.)

I saw a thread similar to this, but I'm not sure if it was this exact problem or just a similar one. I tried doing the things from that thread, too.

I have this same exact problem and have tried everything from the previous thread as well. I also tried playing without mods or cc and still ran into the same issue. I've updated to 1.37.35.1010 too.

Sorry for the belated reply @Redeim,

Have you considered trying the fresh "Game"-folder, for the latest 1.37 update? You can find it at the bottom of the announcement here:
http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t32463-the-sims-4-update-version-1-37-35-1010-out-now

You should delete your old "Game"-folder though, before putting this one in.

Also, the thing with the dxgi-files appears to be an issue "only" with people who are using a zlOrigin-version of The Sims 4, and then try applying this Game-folder, in order to be able to play offline.

Oh, I didn't notice the game folder! I'll try it and get back to you on that!

Go to your install-folder, f.e. C:\Program Files\The Sims 4
Open the folder Game\Bin
Copy the file RldOrigin.ini to your desktop.
Now delete the complete folder Game.

Go to the download of your latest installed DLC or update 1.37.35.1010
Copy the folder Game to your install-folder
In the install-folder open Game\Bin
Copy the file RldOrigin.ini from your desktop to the Game\Bin folder
Now start your game.

@RachelxRude my gf suggested removing my mods folder and trying the game that way, and it worked for me. I'd say try that. Now I'm going through and making sure all my mods are updated. (x_x )
