Original game + G4TW wersion

Post by Klamra on Thu 06 Sep 2018, 20:30

Hello,
Is it possible to have both (original version of sims 4 and G4TW version) on one computer? How can I install it to work properly?

Yes, that is possible.
The original (legal) version will be installed by default in the folder C:\Program Files (x86)\Origin Games\The Sims 4

When you start installing the base game from G4TW, this will go (whatever you do) to C:\Program Files (x86)\Electronic Arts\The Sims 4.
After installation MOVE (not copy) the folder The Sims 4 out of the folder Electronic Arts to anywhere else on your computer (preferably Program Files(x86), thereby creating Program Files (x86)\The Sims 4).
Make a new shortcut from this new location The Sims 4\Game\Bin\TS4.exe or TS4_x64.exe.

Now you can play both versions of the game.
When you get an error like "unable to start game as made with a higher version, update via Origin", copy the file Default.ini from your original game\bin to your G4TW game\bin.

In principle:
Use the original game for access to the Gallery only, never save an original game. Play the game with the G4TW shortcut.
