NOTE 2: We strongly recommend that prior to installing this new update/DLC, that you DELETE or RENAME your "Game"-folder, inside your installation path of The Sims 4 (see step #4 of this guide!).
NOTE 3: Due to the new crack, the method of language change is also different now. During our testing, we found ourselves unable to change the in-game display language by means of the codex.cfg file, however, changing the language works if you change the registry manually. To help ease you into this 'area' we provided individual .reg (registry) files, for each language. We VERY STRONGLY RECOMMEND - for the time being at least - that all of you choose a language that you want to play the game in. Open the folder of the language that you chose, inside "# Language Registry Files". Once you have chosen a language, please double-click on the .reg file that is inside in the folder. Ignore the warning and import the registry entry. Note: if you have imported the registry files, from one of the previous updates, you do not need to import them again, here.
NOTE 4: If you have your game installed on a non-C: drive, you may also need to change the registry entries to accomodate the particular hard-drive the game is installed in. Press the Windows key + R. Type "regedit" in the small window, and hit Enter.
Now edit the drive letter under "GDFBinary"and "InstallDir", here:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE -> Software -> Maxis -> The Sims 4
And edit the drive letter under "GDFBinary", "GDFBinary64" and "InstallDir", here:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE -> Software -> Wow6432Node -> Maxis -> The Sims 4
Simply double-click on the given registry entry, and edit it. Save the changes of course. We will keep you posted in future updates and on the Forum, should we find another (easier) way to change the display language.
NOTE 5: Always remember, if you are unsure about the exact installation procedure/order of Games4theworld's The Sims 4 torrents, make sure to check back under the Forum topic, which gets updated every time a new The Sims 4 update is released.
NOTE 6: Credits for providing the No-Origin crack files go to the group CODEX. The actual game update, DLC files and language strings were extracted from an Origin-based (a.k.a. a legal copy) of The Sims 4 plus DLC. Games4theworld 'merely' repacks those updates and provides Support on the G4TW Forums.
