Cannot load Sims 4 Empty Cannot load Sims 4

Post by lorynxxx on Thu 17 Jan 2019, 22:46

Hi :-)

Apologies in advance, I have followed https://www.games4theworld.club/t33925-the-sims-4-alternative-installer-v2-download-only-what-you-need-even-smaller-than-before and downloaded everything in order etc.

I run the set up, which loaded fine and made a shortcut but now whenever I launch it, my screen goes black then goes back to my normal desktop.

I have searched the forum and tried some of the suggestions but with no luck.

Thank you in advance
Loryn

Let me guess, you didn't change the installation folder and installed to default location? My repack installs by default to "C:\Program Files\The Sims 4" and you didn't have your game there.

I didn't see where it told me to change the location.  Is there anything I can do or am I best to just get rid of the lot and start again?  Thank you for such a quick response.

Selecting install location is the first step if you don't count selecting installation language.

Just move files from "C:\Program Files\The Sims 4" to the folder where your game really is.

I might be stupid or missing something, but going by the location when hovering over the created short cut, my game seems to be in Program Files/Origin Games/The Sims 4/Game/Bin.  Would I move all the files I downloaded to there?

Run the setup again and check where it is set to install. My installer tries to detect the path so if path in registry is wrong it will install to wrong folder unless you change install location.

And no, if the shortcut was created by my installer then it points to the location it installed the files to. So move files from "Program Files\Origin Games\The Sims 4" to where your game really is. I don't know where. You probably installed the previous DLCs using G4TW releases so you should know it.

I did download the base game using your installer and it's went to C:\Program Files (x86)\Origin Games\The Sims 4 apparently, but there are so many folders, I can't then find where to launch that from.

Again, sorry, I'm just a bit confused and have been trying for a couple of days.  What's the best thing to do now?

You should've started with that. Most people use it to just update the game.

Move files from "C:\Program Files (x86)\Origin Games\The Sims 4" to "C:\Program Files\The Sims 4". Then start the game with "C:\Program Files\The Sims 4\Game\Bin\TS4_x64.exe".

If it still doesn't work, run the validator (in quick scan mode) and post the result here. Don't worry if it shows lots of missing files. It should if you didn't install DLCs.

Did you? Because the files I listed here are inside "base-files.bin" and it looks like you didn't download/install it.

Move "base-files.bin" to where "_setup-1.48.94.1020.exe" is, run the setup, change installation path to where your game is (if you listened to me it should be in "C:\Program Files\The Sims 4") and install base files. I don't know where you got the idea to move it to your game folder.

I did listen to you.  I'm running the setup now, installing it to the correct folder.  I will update you, as this takes a while.  Thanks :-)
