The easiest way would be to re-download the Sim Architect pack, and then you only need to download G4TW's newest patch (1.56.52.1020). It's water under the bridge in your case, but for the future, try backing up your actual installation folder of The Sims 4 - currently a little more than 35 GB in size. And not those individual torrents. I believe I put such a notice as well, somewhere in the - admittedly long - introduction in that TS4 Must-Read.

Because if you have the installation folder backed up, all you then need to do is to copy-paste the folder back onto your new computer's hard-drive.

Just copy and paste. Cracked game doesn't need any registry entries so you don't have to worry about them.

And just a general addendum, for people reading up on these threads, and better comprehension.

@manda3000 wrote:(...) updates/fixes in between or are they included in the main files..thankyou

Yes, (in theory) you have to install all the items listed on the TS4 Must-Read. Otherwise we would not have added them to the list. Either way, I assume your problem has come to a conclusion, so I will close the thread now. Feel free to open a new thread again, anytime.

Yess, aye lieeke!
