Unable to start game "required game date is missing or damaged". [SOLVED] Empty Unable to start game "required game date is missing or damaged". [SOLVED]

Post by eeveelutionize on Sat Sep 15, 2018 2:13 pm

I think I made a mistake and need some help now fixing it Why.

I moved the The Sims 4 folder from program files to another place which should've worked without any issues. But I forgot to add the new location to my Antivirus program, so I think it messed something up because when I try to start the game I just get this error:

Unable to start game "required game date is missing or damaged". [SOLVED] 6PzgUKk

I don't have the newest 1.44.88 patch yet, so everything up to and including Seasons was installed (game version 1.44.83). And the game worked before I moved the folder and I didn't change anything else afaik.

I found an older thread but wasn't sure if I can try the method there or if it's outdated.

Any help?  Wat.

That's not the error you get when anti-virus blocks the crack. Run the validator and post the result here.

Alright, this should be easy. Delete "Game_" folder, apply My First Pet Stuff, Seasons and Update 1.46. Don't delete "Game" folder when applying update! Just overwrite files. That should be it.

Update 1.46 is the newest patch 1.44.88?

Thanks a lot in advance! I'll try it and let you know if my problem is solved.

Update 1.46 is update 1.46. You already downloaded it from what I see. You applied it to your game. But since you forgot My First Pet, you need to apply Seasons and Update 1.46 again.

Ah, I didn't see the 1.46 update because it wasn't listed here yet. My mistake. I'll keep an eye on the news section from now on.

Your solution worked perfectly and my game is running again! So thanks a lot!  Good job!

Yes, we do like keeping things organized on G4TW. And I did not "delete" your comments, but merely moved them into a new thread here:

Next time pay more attention before posting, and also please use English on these Forums. This topic is closed.

Edit: you can find "lost" topics simply by clicking on "Welcome (your username)" in the top right, then "my posts".
