You can change the location where these items are saved after download, I think, under the application settings in ZLOrigin.

I myself haven't changed it. For example, I have the G4TW version of The Sims 3 installed, and ZLOrigin seems to be trying to download the 1.69 patch, so I always abort that one. But other than that, no issues on my side.

Also, before you download anything through ZLOrigin, RENAME your folder "Origin", normally under C:\Program Files (x86).

There is another tutorial that can help you here:
https://www.games4theworld.club/t33399-how-to-transfer-from-g4tw-to-zlorigin-and-vice-versa

As for my 20+ minutes of playing so far (a new savefile) in first person mode, I'm not so impressed. It seems like the mouse-sensitivity is super-high, and moving the mouse a little jerks the view around. Also, I haven't found a way to go through doors in first person mode.

In normal mode you just click on the floor in another room and choose "go there", or choose another interaction. But that doesn't work in first person. It's likely that I am missing something, but all in all this looks like something that has been rushed out, and not thought through well on EA's side. 

Like, if you want to use the UI in order to check the sim's needs, you need to "break out" of the perspective somewhat and hold the SHIFT-key, which leaves you in first person mode but changes the cursor so that you can access the UI menus.

What are the options when you right click on a DLC in ZLO? Post a screenshot.

Where is this even from? Open info page for "The Sims 4", it should look like this:



I think you didn't log into ZClient and/or logged into your legit account on ZLOrigin but I'm not sure.

That's not ZLOrigin. That's normal Origin.

First of all, I censored the ZLOrigin credential of yours, that you posted somewhere above. Second, before using ZLOrigin, I recommend that you rename the folder "Origin" (if you have Origin installed), normally under C:\Program Files (x86). Just change the folder name of Origin into something else.

Then see my screenshot here:




Use ZClient first, after you get the "auth success"-message, double-click on the "ZLOrigin"-shortcut. This shortcut points to the "Origin.exe", located under C:\Program Files (x86)\ZLOrigin. And this is how you open ZLOrigin.

Note the above is a customized setup of shortcuts and files; I basically started off with the ZLOrigin framework that @Tarac posted in his guide for setting up the ZLOrigin. All these items are located inside a folder "ZLOrigin", which I have put directly on my desktop.

I don't know how you are doing this, but maybe the above can give you a first guideline, for the future. And as said earlier: that first person mode is - while interesting - not as groundbreaking in my opinion as most people seem to think it is.

@GummyPop or @anadius, if I may ask. How was the problem solved, through TeamViewer? Judging from some newer topics here I assume the problem has been solved? Smile

Forgot to say, yes, problem was solved! We reinstalled ZLOrigin, then it didn't even want to start. Solution was cleaning the Origin cache with this batch file (taken from ZLOEmu Discord).
