Gallery connection problems: a note about network adapter settings.

Disclaimer: this procedure will only be relevant for people who own The Sims 4 on Origin, since only those versions are able to connect to the Gallery...



Hello,

The following post will dwell on a "glitch" that is relatively rare, but one that still happens from time to time. Did you follow already SeoY's guide on connecting to the gallery, but it still doesn't seem to connect you ?

One possibility is some sort of server-related issue on EA's end, in which case you should simply try re-connecting later in the day, or sometime else again. The second possibility - which this post is about - will be especially interesting for those of you who use the tool "GameBooster" (be it the one from Razer, or the IoBit one) in order to free up system resources.

I will illustrate this with screenshots from my Windows 7 system:







Navigate to Control Panel -> Hardware and Sound -> Power Options. Look at the "plan" that is marked/selected. Investigate it by clicking on "change plan settings". If you are indeed using GameBooster, chances are that the "Gaming Mode Power Plan" is marked in your system.












Click on "change advanced power settings" and you'll get the following "power options" window then. 












Under Wireless Adapter Settings -> Power Saving Mode, I would mark the option "Maximum Performance". Click on Apply, then OK. 

See if that makes any difference, or just see what settings your different power plans have. The one from my first screenshot, named "Gaming Mode Power Plan", by default tunes down the wireless adapter options while a game is running. So I switched to another "plan", but you could of course just edit the settings if needed.

This "fix" can also be used if you are (suddenly) noticing internet connectivity problems in general, while playing games.


Again, if you need general information about connecting to the gallery with a pirated Sims 4 game, please refer to SeoY's comprehensive guide that I linked to, already. Here it is again:

Good luck for now, and I hope this small tip can help at least some of you ! Smile

Hi there,

The fact that it changes the Power Plan can be very annoying indeed. (Also when you don't want to use Hybride Sleep mode, like me)
Fortunately you can easily disable this feature in the Game Booster configuration:
