I can't change the language in The Sims 4. [SOLVED] Empty I can't change the language in The Sims 4. [SOLVED]

Hello, I have a problem and i couldn't find a solution to this problem. I downloaded The Sims 4 repack from other site (idk know if i can give this site here) and i have a problem changing the language of the game to Polish. The site administrator created a file to change the registry entry and recommended using it to change the language. But when I run .reg files (from refiles, i cant add a specific page), i decide to run them as administrator. I receive information that the information has been successfully added to the registry. However, when I open the register, I see that nothing has changed and the game is still in English. I made sure my installation directory is correct. When I try to manually change the registry entry (HKAY_LOCAL_MACHINE \ SOFTWARE \ Maxis \ The Sims 4) to Polish, I get a game error (35dec40:90f690cf:00000075:495f32a0). Did i do something wrong? Can you help me? I don't know what to do anymore and i'm sorry for my bad English. Sad

Hello and welcome to the G4TW Forums @shoija,

I can try helping you as well, also if you downloaded the game from elsewhere. But the first thing you need to know is, that most groups that repack Sims 4, only put one (1) language in their games. Mostly that is English, sometimes also Russian.

The remaining languages must be downloaded separately, which is a huge pain, unless you know "certain tricks". But either way, most people don't put more than 1 language in their Sims 4 games. That means for you, if you try changing it into something else than English, you get this error. Usually something like "service initialization failed [error code]".

You can try downloading the Language Strings here:
https://www.games4theworld.club/t35594-the-sims-4-discover-university-version-1-58-63-1020-out-now

Or if you don't want these ads, then feel free to do an internet search for "Sims 4 language strings". Copy and paste the strings over your install folder, replace existing files when prompted, and then try the game again.

Your registry entry for the GDFBinary is not the way that it should be, I'm not sure if it can work that way. But please try grabbing the Language Strings first, and apply them. See how it goes.

Good luck! Red star from Carlos
