ZLOrigin Game Directory

How to install the Sims 4 in a different directory and preserve your previous (G4TW) downloads.
You can still play and update on-line via ZLOrigin and your pirated games off-line from the same install folder

When you have succesfully installed ZClient and ZLOrigin, you can install the new Sims 4 over your old G4TW installations.


  • In ZLOrigin clcik on the word Origin (top left)
  • Click on Application Settings
  • Click on Advanced
  • Now click on the Change button under Downloaded Games
  • Browse to the folder where your game is installed now, or if you have nothing as yet installed, you can create your own folder but not in Origin Games, ZLOrigin games or Electronic Arts !

 
You van barely see that I chose my existing folder C:\Program Files (x86)\The Sims 4\

As I want to play the Sims 4 on-line via ZLOrigin as well as off-line for a pirated version, I checked the box "Automatically exit Origin after closing a game" to avoid the error "Origin is not running" when playing off-line with a pirated version.

Now start downloading your Sims 4 games and installtion will be effected in the folder you chose/created.

Play the Sims 4 without ZLOrigin

When you wish to be able to play the Sims 4 off-line, simply add a folder Game Cracked in your install folder The Sims 4.
(Folder has the english language and is upto version 1.32.1.1020), avoiding the "Unable to start, different version" error.

Make new shortcuts from Game cracked\Bin\TS4 and/or TS4_x64.exe to start your game off-line.

game_cracked.rar
Download File


Extract with winrar and place it in your install folder The Sims 4


 
Disregard the path Passport(Z) > Sims > The Sims 4 in the above picture.
Yours should look like C: > Program Files (x86) > The Sims 4 or whatever folder you have chosen.

Important

At this moment of writing, ZLOrigin has version 1.32.10.1020 and the Game cracked folder is adapted to that version as well.
Whenever ZLOrigin comes with un update (different version) it is advisable to copy the file Default.ini from the folder Game and to paste it in the same location in the folder Game cracked.
