Quick Download/Installation Question

Post by KeeWee on Fri 05 Oct 2012, 14:54

Hi everyone!

I've purchased The Sims 3 base game and Generations EP (along with a few SP) from Origins, and I'd like to download the rest (since I feel like EA are burning a hole in my bank account and I'm sadly addicted to simming).

My question is this: since my game directory is under "Origin Games" in my program files, should I use a typical installation and let it setup a new "EA Games" (or whatever) directory or use costum installation and change it to the "Origin Games" directory? Will my games appear in the launcher even if they're not under the same directory?

Thanks y'all!

A Typical installation will work, the game doesn't care where they are installed as long as they are installed. But taking the little bit extra time to change the directory isn't a bad thing, keeping all The Sims 3 stuff together is useful when applying the cracks/fixes, since you'll needed to remember what folder they are in when applying cracks/fixes.
