Thanks, I've moved the topic to the appropriate section Smile


Did you try to start the game without any mods or CC at all?

I'm sorry to say that I myself, am not too experienced with these Sims 4 problems, since I never moved on from The Sims 3 Sad
I am not sure what to suggest at this point, but let me tag @The_gh0stm4n for you, and he will get back to you when he is online next.

Mods and CC go to the same folder - "Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 4\Mods" - no matter if you're playing original game or cracked. Remove them from that folder. If the game still doesn't start, run the validator and post the result here.

I meant copy result and paste it here, not take a screenshot. "bbcode" one, since this is not Discord nor Disqus.

From what I see your installation is fine. Go to "Documents\Electronic Arts" and rename "The Sims 4" folder to "The Sims 4_". And start the game.

Just realised. You installed the base game only. That's why your CC doesn't work. Your game version is 1.0.797.20. CC you're trying to add was probably made for newer version of the game.

Do you want to install DLCs or just the base game? Whichever you choose, have a look at my repack. Read carefully "what to download" section.

In short: extract DLC file (.rar or .zip or .iso for the latest update; you can mount the last one - if you don't know how, just extract it too), copy files from extracted folder (there should be those folders: Data, Delta, Game, FP01 and depending on DLC - EP*, GP*, SP*) to your game installation directory.

Before installing Seasons delete "Game" folder in your game installation directory.

You need to copy them in correct order, read this guide.

You just said it yourself. Extract and copy.

For the downloads from G4TW it is extremely simple:
1. Base game -> Download, extract with Winrar, click on Setup.exe (place crack if you don't oinstall further DLC's)
2. Move (not copy) the folder The Sims 4 out of the folder c:\Program Files (x64)\Electronic Arts
3. All DLC's -> Download, extract with Winrar, copy folders over to the folder The Sims 4

After installation of Toddlers, delete the folder Game from your install folder The Sims 4 (see #2 above) and replace with the folder Game from your downloads.
Exception to this rule is Update 1.46.18.1020 where you must not delete the Game folder but just copy/paste from the download.

Should this be too complicated for you, download the Sims 4 all-in (from base game upto and incl. update 1.46.18.1020) in just 1 single folder, so no copy/paste, no cracks, no patches etc.
Download and play. See HERE
