1.) Since The Sims 4 tends to be picked up - erroneously - as "malicious" by many anti-virus programs, you need to make sure to add both the (future) install location of your game as well as the location of your downloads to the "exceptions list" in your anti-virus program. The guide HERE can give you an initial overview of what needs to be done: https://www.games4theworld.club/t18501-unable-to-start-initialization-error-at-startup-135dec40984c6a3800000077 But depending on which anti-virus software you yourselves are using, you may need to do more research on your own. Don't worry! Even though the game files are picked up by anti-virus software as malicious, the files are completely safe to use (it’s what we call a "false-positive" warning ). We suggest you add the following locations to the exceptions list in your anti-virus software. Later on, once you installed the game, you may narrow-down the exclusions to only your installed The Sims 4 game folders. But in order to avoid any problems during the download of the games and/or the installation process, it is a good idea to add these exclusions beforehand OR temporarily disable your anti-virus software before downloading and installing the game. C:\Program Files (x86)\ C:\Program Files\ C:\Users\(your username)\Downloads\ (Important: If you add this location to the exclusions, make sure that you REMOVE it from the exceptions list after installing the game!) 2.) Download and install Games4theworld's version of The Sims 4 base game, which you can find along all other Games4theworld releases, on our official Forum announcement here: https://www.games4theworld.club/t53-all-games4theworld-downloads 3.) Now install the other Games4theworld The Sims 4 torrents in the following order, if you have not done so already. If you installed some of these, then you only need to apply those item that "follow" your latest DLC. For example, if you have everything including Toddlers/Vampires/Bowling installed already, then you just needto apply Parenthood -> Fitness Stuff -> Toddlers Stuff, and of course Cats & Dogs. => The Sims 4 (= base game) => Get to Work => Get together => City Living => Toddlers, Vampires & Bowling Stuff (The Sims 4 version 126.96.36.1990) => Parenthood => Fitness Stuff => Toddlers Stuff => Cats & Dogs => Laundry Day Stuff => Jungle Adventure => My First Pet Stuff => Seasons => Get Famous => Update 188.8.131.520 => Strangerville => Island Living => Moschino Stuff => Realm of Magic => Discover University 4.) Your next step is to go to where you installed the base game of The Sims 4 to. Inside, you should see a folder named "Game". WE STRONGLY RECOMMEND that you RENAME that folder, into anything you like. For example into "Game_". Alternatively you can also delete or move the folder away. 5.) Now copy ALL the folders inside this download, to where you installed the base game of The Sims 4 to. If you installed Games4theworld's base game, the default install location will be under C:\Program files (x86)\Electronic Arts\The Sims 4 . 6.) When prompted, choose "Merge folders" and "Copy and replace (all) files/Replace files in the destination". 7.) Now please MOVE (don’t copy) the “The Sims 4” folder located in C:\Program Files (x86)\Electronic Arts\ to THIS location instead: C:\Program Files\ So your new installation location will be: C:\Program Files\The Sims 4\ 8.) Done! You now have the latest available working version of The Sims 4! Navigate to C:\Program Files\The Sims 4\Game\Bin and start the game by double-clicking the "TS4_x64.exe" file. If you want to create shortcuts to quickly launch the game from your Desktop, right-click on the "TS4.exe" file and choose Send to > Desktop (Create shortcut). Start the game and… ENJOY playing the latest version of The Sims 4! --- END OF INSTRUCTIONS --- +++ ADDITIONAL NOTE 1 +++ so once again, as a 32-bit user you will NOT be able to benefit from future game updates and DLC releases! For 32-bit users it's as if the life cycle of The Sims 4 ended at this point. +++ ADDITIONAL NOTE 2 +++ if you start up the game, and for some reason you get a brief loading circle on Windows, but the game does not open, try the following. Go under your C:\Users\(your Windows username)\Documents\Electronic Arts\ location. Look for all folders named "The Sims 4", and (temporarily) move them out, for example on the desktop. If you have these folders in a different language than English, such as "Los Sims 4" (Spanish) or "Die Sims 4" (German), then move these folders out, as well. In addition open your task manager (CTRL + ALT + DELETE), and look under the tab "Processes" for an entry named "The Sims 4 Legacy Edition 32-bit". Right-click on the entry and choose "End task". After that, try starting up your game again. +++ ADDITIONAL NOTE 3 +++ for some people, after they copy/paste this update over their existing Sims 4 installation, they might initially get an error like "Orange is not running" when trying to run the game the first time (after applying the new update). Click away the error window(s), wait a few seconds, and then try starting the game again. If it still does not work, try disabling any and all "virtualization" features in your UEFI/BIOS settings. Please try googling or refer to your specific motherboard model/number, as a start, and go from there. Within Windows 10 and Windows 8, you can, in addition, also change something in your control panel to help with these issues. Control Panel => Programs => Programs and Features => Turn Windows Features on/off Uncheck the box named "Hyper-V", there. ***TORRENT BY: Games4theworld***
