*Disclaimer 1* rumor has it that when you cheat in one of ZLOrigin's online games, your hard-drive could be wiped as punishment. More rumors have it that anybody using ZLOrigin can be used as a 'proxy', and your personal data could be compromised in the process. Use ZLOrigin with caution; consider using ZLOrigin within a virtual machine.
*Disclaimer 2* before using ZLOrigin, we recommend renaming your installation folder of "Origin", if you have Origin installed. The default location of the folder will be C:\Program Files (x86)\Origin. Just change the folder name of "Origin" into anything you like. When you are done with ZLOrigin and want to use the real Origin again, then just revert the folder name change.
Before you consider installing ALL DLC's and updates via ZLOrigin, bear in mind that:
1. When Zclient is down, or forced to close, the whole system is worthless and you can't play your installed games.
2. Rest assured that Electronic Arts / Origin is working extremely hard on counter-measures
3. Reliable cracks are still better. Once you've installed them, they are YOURS.
Update: It looks like zclient/zlorigin is very reliable now. New DLC's available within 1 day of release.
ZLOrigin is a new way of downloading and playing various games (The Sims 4 and The Sims 3) without cracks.
It looks very simular to Origin.
What do you need ?
1. A free account on zloemu.net
2. Access to the server via Zclient
3. Access to ZLOrigin
How can I get that ?
Grab the item from THIS LINK (click on where it says "Скачать", in order to download), or alternatively THIS MIRROR.
Extract with Winrar.
You might get a warning that the file contains a virus. Ignore it.
You now have a folder ZL-systeem that contains 2 other folders, Zclient and ZLOrigin.
Place the folder ZL-Systeem on your desktop as you will need it often.
Preparations - step 1 - Zclient
Open the folder Zclient and the Folder New login
Click on zloemu for a connection with zloemu.net
Open a new account with a (new) valid email-address
The captcha is a kind of jig-saw-puzzle, complete it.
When you have completed your request for registration of a new account, you will receive a mail from ZLOFENIX, also check your spambox. Note users of @hotmail adresses reported frequently that they never received this mail.
Click on the link in that mail and you can now log in.
First contact with Zclient
Open your folder Zclient again and click Zclient.exe
Enter the details of your account (mail and password) and click on Connect
Zclient is now connecting and updating various data.
Check autologin (Cloud no longer available)
In case you are disconnected (a newer version of Zclient is installed), try again.
When successful, the message Auth success as ..(your username) should display
Your folder Zclient will now also be filled with extra information
Preparations - step 2 - ZLOrigin
Now open your folder ZLOrigin and click on setup.exe to install ZLOrigin on your computer.
Preparations- step 3 -Install The Sims 4
In ZLOrigin, click My Games
Now scroll down to the picture of the Sims4
Hover over it and you'll see Download - Click on it.
When download is completed, hover again over the picture of the Sims 4 and click on the i for information.
The DLC's will now install (waiting list for downloading).
Do not play the game when downloading is still in progress !
From now on:
Open de folder Zclient and click on zclient.exe to make a connection with the server
Click on the shortcut on your desktop to play the game.
People with a legal Origin account:
ZLOrigin will by default use the same installation folder as Origin
C:\Program Files (x86)\Origin Games\The Sims 4.
So better to move that folder The Sims 4 to an other location on your computer.
When you allow Origin to update ZLOrigin files, you will loose ALL non-legally-bought DLC's
In that case, when you try to recover via ZLOrigin, great chance you will encounter a "critical error"
TROUBLESHOOTINGRepair problems with Zclient and ZLOrigin
First check on your taskbar near the ^sign for any instances of that big Z.
Close them by rightclicking on each Z
Then try again
When Zclient does not go any further than Connecting, most probably you do not have the latest version of Zclient
Go to THIS SITE and download Zclient.exe from there.
Check that Cloud is setto Mailru
When the download is completed:
- Make a new folder on your desktop called Zclient
- Move the downloaded Zclient.exe to that folder
- Have you tried to download Zclient before, make sure that is doesn't look like zclient(2).exe. Remove the brackets and the number. It should show just Zclient.exe.
- There should be no other files in that folder
- Now execute Zclient.exe
Leave the cloud set to Mailru, don't change that !!
Folder of Zclient before executing Zclient
Succesful log-in via Zclient
Folder of Zclient after a succesful log-in
A fresh start in ZclientOpen the folder Zclient
Delete all files except ZClient.exe. It should now look as the picture above under Folder of Zclient before executing Zclient.
Now activate ZClient again.
When you are successfully logged in to Zclient and ZLOrigin does not react or act strangely:
First try this
- Press ALT+CTRL+DEL and select taskmanager
- Under Processes, look for any instances of Origin and end them
- Now click ZLOrigin again
No luck ?
- Delete a previous installation of ZLOrigin
- Rightclick on the icon of ZLOrigin on your desktop
- Select: open file location
- Look for unins000.exe (it has the big Z from ZClient in front)
- Double-click on it - ZLOrigin will uninstall.
- When that's completed, install ZLOrigin again
- Now install ZLOrigin again
Reboot your computer and redo the steps above
STILL NO LUCK ON EITHER ZCLIENT OR ZLORIGIN ?
When you try and start the game a message shows about updatingJust as in the genuine Origin, an update is required shortly before a new pack becomes available.
Without that update a new pack won't play.
Rightclick on the picture of The Sims 4 and select Check for updates.
You can change the language in ZLOrigin (although some parts will still be in Russian):
1. Language for installation
2. Language of your game
In Zlorigin, rightclick on the image of The Sims 4
Click on View Game Details.
After selection click on OK
Downloading stopsAt the bottom of the dowloadscreen you see f.e. 9 of 20 Downloading The Sims.
When downloading has stopped. click on Downloading The Sims
Click on Pause (button with II) and immediately again on resume. (same button but now bears a down-arrow)
Downloading should continue.
