Sims 4 doesn't start

Post by Lia95 on Fri 07 Sep 2018, 10:27


I installed the sims 4 and all the DLC up to city living and then tried to start it and nothing happened, like I hadn't even done anything. I don't even have an error pop up so I don't know where to start looking for the problem. I'm still downloading the DLC because my internet box is kinda slow and I don't want to waste time, so now I'm at the parenthood DLC, and still nothing is happening.
What can I do?
(I'm sorry for any spelling mistake, english is not my native language)

Thank you for your help

"City Living" or "Toddlers, Vampires & Bowling Stuff"? Because the second one is problematic one and it comes before Parenthood.

Things you can try:
Move the game to different location - if it was in "C:\Program Files (x86)\Electronic Arts\The Sims 4", move it to "C:\Program Files (x86)\The Sims 4", so the path is shorter.
Add "Game\Bin" folder to your anti-virus exclusion list.
If you had Sims 4 installed before, move "Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 4" to desktop or delete it completely if you don't care about saves.

If you want to download much less, look at my repack. Just skip "base-files.bin" and DLCs you already downloaded from G4TW releases:
Get to Work: EP01, FP01, GP01
Get together: EP02, GP02, SP01, SP02, SP03, SP04
City living: EP03, GP03, SP05, SP06, SP07, SP08, SP09
Toddlers, Vampires & Bowling Stuff: GP04, SP10
Parenthood: GP05

I'm not a part of G4TW team, I'm just helping a lot here.
