The Sims 4 alternative installer v2 (download only what you need; even smaller than before)

Post by anadius on Thu 16 Aug 2018, 01:33

Download links

Torrent

Direct download mirrors:
Mediafire
Mega

Info

Faster updates, help, etc. at Discord.

This release is for people who want to:
a) download less
b) play with only some DLCs or no DLCs at all

No matter where you got your game from, you can use this installer to get a new content.

What to download

If you want to keep the previous patch, rename _setup.exe to patch-<version here>.exe before downloading a new one.

Always download _setup.exe and helper_tools.rar.

"I want the base game"
Download base-files.bin, no-origin-fix-*.rar and patch-*.bin.

"I want to just update the game"
Download no-origin-fix-*.rar and patch-*.bin.

"I want to install DLC"
Download dlc-*.bin for that DLC; if it's not showing on main menu screen download no-origin-fix-*.rar and patch-*.bin.

"I want to install everything"
Then download everything!

Note: no-origin-fix-*.rar is a crack from CODEX! Password is "origin-fix". Just in case your anti-virus deletes it and you have to extract it manually.

Installation

Just run _setup.exe.

Incremental patches

At first I wanted to make Sims-3-like incremental patches (updating from version x to y) but CODEX (group creating the crack) does a great job already. The only thing they are missing are language files for all 17 languages.
I'll provide those here: https://ts4installers.page.link/language-strings
Get updates here: <snip> I don't think I can post that link here on forums. Razz

Size comparsion

Total size:
1. FitGirl's repack (~18GB)
2. my repack (~20GB)
3. CODEX release (~27GB)
4. G4TW (~61GB)

Size to download when new DLC is out:
1. my repack (3,2GB patch + new DLC: 60MB-1,9GB)
2. G4TW (similar to mine)
3. FitGirl's repack (~18GB)
4. CODEX release (~27GB)

Longer explanation of size comparison can be found in this comment.

Thanks to Razor12911 for pZlib!

So if we were already using the v1 "alternate installer", should we uninstall all of those files and install these?

If I can continue by just using the new version with the old version:
How can I be assured new files won't crash the game I currently have?
Do i have to install that download_setup.exe and the other file?

I'll just aswer your e-mail.

I am not understanding mainly because there are no instructions for people already using the prior installers provided https://www.games4theworld.club/t33100-the-sims-4-alternative-installers-install-dlcs-in-any-order-you-want-discontinued.
"I wanted something smaller" but how does this affect the people who already downloaded and rely on old files provided.
It doesn't affect you in any way. As said in title, "download only what you need".
Why discontinue that "project" ?
Because I find this form of installer better.
Why use Zorigin since this crashes with some files??
It doesn't. G4TW uses files from ZLO and I can assure you they are 100% the same as files from CODEX releases.
Is it that we should uninstall all of files in the old link and reinstall the new files?
No.
Can we use the new files along with the old files such as patches and any other updates/packs?
Yes. But the patch in this release is a full patch. You don't need previous full/incremental installers.
For people with the old files, do we need to download that download_setup.exe and other file ?
If you want to install patch/dlc from v2 then yes.

Patch update installation

I want to just update the game so I downloaded no-origin-fix-*.rar and patch-*.bin. and _setup.exe and helper_tools.rar.
In which order should I start getting on it? Would you mind telling me the step since I am not quite familiar with an alternative installer? 

Thanks a million Very Happy

@yuzukisena just run "_setup.exe" it does all the work. It'll ask you for install location and everything.

I got an error when I tried to run _setup.exe, it said:

'An error occurred while decompressing: Archive header is corrupt!
Unarc.dll returned an error code: -14
ERROR: this is not FreeArc archive or this archive is corrupt

Any idea what might have caused this or how to fix? Do I need to re-download?

Download "hash" folder and "verify bin files.bat", and then run it. It'll check if files are properly downloaded.

@Roorek Most probably incompatible mods. Move them out of "Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 4\Mods" and try again.

Nope. That's not it. I didn't put any mods there. It worked before (when I downloaded all packs, not the one I want) with CC, didn't have any problem.

When I said mods I meant mods/CC. Just take everything out. Or even better, rename "Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 4" folder so the game starts completely fresh. And if that doesn't help, try using validator and post the result here.

You didn't have to uninstall the game. Your internet provider can't check what's on your computer. They can't even check what you download as long as it goes through https. So use direct links, there are 3 mirrors to choose from.

However when using torrents everyone who connect to that torrent can see IP addresses of other people who download/upload that torrent. You should consider using a VPN. Or stick to direct links.

Hi! I recieved the language error : Unable to start
The current user is not entitled to run the sims 4 in the installed language.

I installed my game in Fr first and downloaded your DLC and had the error... took the language tool (helper) changed all to fr but it does not work Sad

Try changing the language to English and back to French. If it still doesn't work, run validator and post the result in the new thread.

My language changer works both with CODEX and RELOADED crack.
