Download/Gallery pets.

Post by Alany_Mogad on Mon 22 Oct 2018, 03:23

So I came back to ask whether the problem with downloading pets was solved or not. This year there were a problem with downloaded pets that couldn't be merged into a household for unknown reasons. It was a general error, many of us players had that problem and I used other downloads as well and couldn't use my downloaded pets.
It doesn't happen when you created them by scratch or you adopt them, but the problem is when you try to merge the pets household with another one, it acts as if they merged but no pets are showed at all.
If you had a downloaded household consisting of sim+pet, when merging you could only see the Sim, but no downloaded pet at sight.


So any update about this problem, idk with Seasons or new updates? (I haven't updated my game and I'm not whishing to do it for now unless the gallery problem is solved, of course Razz)!

with "I used other downloads as well" I meant I downloaded Sims 4 from different sources, without success on using my gallery pets.

Just tested it. Downloaded this pet and merged with new household without a problem.

I hereby postulate that this 'glitch' was caused by incompatible mods and/or other hiccups with the game installation files in the first place.

(Disclaimer: while admittedly I am not 100% sure about this, I am postulating it still because it sounds cool if there was a problem with Gallery items, nothing could be used at all - so it would affect literally all sims...and not just pets).

Haters gonna hate

What about gallery pets? I just saved Anders + SerPounce-ALot directly form Gallery but I couldn't load the pet in G4TW's cracked version.


I may try to update my game since I want them so bad, but as of my currently version, I and other users can't use pets from Gallery. I don't think we all have the very same mods? Plus I already trying kicking my mods folder out of Documents for the sake of Gallery pets without success.


Well, Imma try updating for now

Don't have original base game so can't test it. But it should work the same.

If that still doesn't work after update, move Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 4 folder to desktop and try again.

If that doesn't help, run the validator and post the result here.

Don't bother, I guess I was wrong (though I'm positive that this must have been a very recent 'change', that these pets from the Gallery can't be used anymore). My own validator report btw:

report:

Version: 1.46.18.1020
Folder: The Sims 4

Hash mismatch:

game/bin/graphicscards.sgr

Missing files:


Unknown files:

game/bin/core/winhttp.dll

Also, I have the suspicion this is not a 'glitch', but rather something that is being introduced deliberately. I'm also afraid it might have implications for Gallery items in general, in that at some point they may become un-usable in DRM-bypassed versions of the game.

//EDIT

I'm not saying or implying this is definitely going to happen, but we need to take into account that the "only" difference between the item that anadius linked before and the Gallery items is their mode of distribution. If I create a pet through the game and share the Tray-files here directly, they should (?) be usable; if I find the time I will do more testing. But if I upload the pet item to the official Gallery, someone downloads it, and then tries using it in a CODEX/G4TW game, it doesn't show up.

It's like the Gallery adds something into these files, that makes them unusable in CODEX/G4TW games. Again, I hope this is not the case, but this smells like "something's up", which could have future implications for these Gallery items.

Delete "EP05" folder and rename "EP05_" folder to "EP05". And delete those files:
game/bin/core/winhttp.dll
game/bin/d3d9.dll

But as The_gh0stm4n says, this may still not work.

Try this: download some pets from gallery. Export them with Tray importer, in Documents\Electronic Arts rename The Sims 4 to The Sims 4_, start the cracked game, close it, import tray files you just exported and start the game again.

Sorry, I did not communicate it properly in my previous reply, so I will add it here. If you look at my validator report, nothing is wrong there. These few files are "errors" that everybody gets, and we will make sure to remedy that in future DLC releases.

However, what this means is that if it doesn't work for me (I mean the thing with using Gallery pets), then it's not going to work for anybody else either. @Alany_Mogad, you can or should still fix your issues as shown in the validator report, for general playability of the game. But it most likely won't fix the original issue at hand.

Also tried editing the try files in the Tray Importer; I just removed the descriptions and hash-tags, didn't help either.  WhatDidUJustCallMe?  Will try and do a few more things later on, but I'm not hopeful.

What exactly is not working in your Tray Importer? Just (re-) installed the small program, fired it up, and it was effortlessly able to scan the contents under My Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 4\Tray folder. 

I'll also keep posting these Gallery-updates...I guess for as long as they are usable in CODEX/G4TW-versions of The Sims 4. Including Pets. I was thinking about the remote possibility, about what happens if you have a legit base game PLUS the "Pets" expansion, and download Gallery items from that setup? (I only have a legit basegame without any DLC).

It's a long shot, and I'm not going to buy a Pets-expansion just for testing this theory. We'll see what happens.
