Hi guys, I was wondering if someone could help me. I just recently downloaded all of the dlc and kept the base game from origin. It keeps popping up saying it’s running 32bit even though my computer is 64bit and in the origin settings it says 64bit. Does anyone know how I could change this or did I do something wrong when downloading everything? Any help is appreciated, thank you.

Welcome to the Forum first of all,

It's worth noting that unless you know what you do, you should not have "merged" the (cracked) DLC with the Origin base game. I know it is or can be intuitive to do so, because it may seem to save hassle. Nonetheless, if you play that game through Origin, the cracked DLCs will not be recognized.

What you should try doing now is to right-click on your game in the Origin library and choose "Repair". Then basically leave your Origin game as it is, because it's useless (see previous paragraph). You should only start it up for grabbing Gallery items.

You will then have to re-install the cracked Sims 4 from scratch, starting with a cracked base game, and then the DLC. Do not start Origin when playing the cracked game, and instead go under the Game\Bin subfolder and use the TS4_x64.exe to run the game. Which is the 64-bit version of the game. More information on the cracked Sims 4, can be found here:

Feel free to post back for any follow-up issues.  Yess, aye lieeke!



Note: the above is a "simplified" procedure, and a suggestion from mine, since you appear to be completely new to this. In theory you can indeed have only one single Sims 4 install folder, but with various different "Game"-subfolders (Game_Origin, Game_G4TW, Game_ZLOrigin, etc.). A procedure that in theory is elegant, but I doubt it will be comprehended by most users, and you have to keep renaming these "Game"-subfolders if you switch between Origin/cracked versions.
