Game will not open
« on: April 05, 2018, 07:07:55 PM »
I have been trying to get into the sims 4 for two days now, and I've tried everything! Everything seems normal when I open origin and select 'play', but after waiting a short while, origin just opens up again and the game will not open.

Is anyone else having these issues?

You haven't said what you've tried, so please forgive the repeat tips.

1. Move the mods folder to desktop (for testing purposes) - This is to fully make sure it's not outdated mods/cc or some hidden files in the Mods folder. - Read more in the post linked below:

How to Fix Problems with Mods/CC

2. Turning off Origin In-Game
Open Origin, Select Origin > Application Settings > Origin In Game and deselect or turn Off to disable Origin In Game.

3. Start the game in Windowed mode -- In the Origin Client, go to the Games Library tab, and right click on the Sims 4 Cover and select Game Properties - In the Command Line Arguments, add the following text: -w and click Okay. If this doesn't work, try: -w und

4. Make sure drivers are up to date

5. Try a Sims 4 factory reset and a new game save without mods/cc.
