Game only opening origin login. Empty Game only opening origin login.

Post by MagicAddie on Sun 09 Feb 2020, 06:25

i decided to take advantage of the base game being free on origin today, but im getting the sense i may have **** everything. after i installed it, i logged out of origin, went to open my g4tw game, and it took me to the origin login. so i uninstalled origin. then i got an error on running that said "origin is needed to play your game, please reinstall origin" or something to that effect. i renamed The Sims 4 folder in program files, wouldnt run. i moved it to program files (x86), wouldnt run. i reinstalled origin, made sure the legit game was uninstalled, went into offline mode, logged out, took me right back to the login.

i am so stumped.

Hello @MagicAddie,

Either your Windows Defender and/or your antivirus software have probably purged the "No-Origin" fixes. So your first priority should be about fixing these programs so that it doesn't happen again. For Windows Defender under Windows 10, look here:
https://www.games4theworld.club/t32067-two-ways-of-disabling-windows-defender-under-windows-10

If you have Windows 7 or Windows 8, I believe there is an option in the System Control Panel, to turn off Windows Defender directly. And if you have other antivirus software beyond Windows Defender, you need to do research on how to configure "exclusions" properly.

Once you did all of that, please take whatever the latest Sims 4 download of yours is. Re-extract the "Game"-subfolder (only), and re-insert it under your TS4 installation path. When prompted, replace all existing files. Then try running the game again.

Good luck for now!

thanks so much for the reply, i really appreciate it. i went through the steps in the guide you sent, but have no entry named "disableantispyware", and so couldnt continue. should i still try to replace my game folder?

I believe I posted a workaround for that in the guide that I linked to as well, towards the end of the text. Let me see if I can find it again.

@The_gh0stm4n wrote:(...) If for some unknown reason you do not see an entry named DisableAntiSpyware, right-click somewhere on the empty space in the registry path shown above and choose New -> DWORD (32-bit value). Name the key DisableAntiSpyware - and off you go.

So that you end up with something like this at the end:

ah, i did miss that, thank you very much! sometimes white text on dark backgrounds swims in my vision and i miss easy things. after a lot of futzing around with things, and getting on teamviewer with a friend who knows a lot more about computers and game files than i do, im happy to report that we figured it out!

a couple things:


-after an hour or so, we found out that the "disableantispyware" entry i created disappeared, and windows defender had turned itself back on


-i had already replaced the game file per your instructions and gotten the game to run when we found out defender was active again, and as im typing this, defender is still active, and ive restarted the game successfully (and with no missing saves, might i add). so i can only assume that it was actually a problem with the game file all along

That sounds good, at least for now I guess!

I suppose in theory you can leave Windows Defender, but you then have to add the path (where your TS4 installation is located) to the "exclusions". Not sure if you can safely roll with this setup in the long run, but for now it seems to be working.

ive had all of my exclusions up to date since i first downloaded the g4tw crack years ago, so it should work? i'll be keeping an eye on it regardless. i wont be opposed to resetting everything (exclusions included) after backing up and reinstalling if something goes funky again to see if that fixes anything, too

i just tried to load up a save and got an endless loading screen that forced me to end the task through task manager. testing a new save took me to a blank white screen where the worlds should have been. it looks like origin screwed everything, so i am going to backup, reset exclusions, and reinstall everything and see if that fixes it

It would have been a better decision to wait for my feedback, and use this instead:
https://www.games4theworld.club/t33486-the-sims-4-validator-version-1-60-54-1020

Then copy-paste the validator report, in a response on this Forum here.

But good luck either way!
