Downloaded TS4 all-in-one and trying to use Sims 4 Studio

Post by an9elica on Mon 29 Oct 2018, 05:52

Hi! First, I want to say "thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you". Second, I downloaded the all-in-one ISO for The Sims 4 and I mounted it, it works great, but now I'm trying to use Sims 4 Studio with the program. It didn't work, so I put the entire index onto my external hard drive -- that didn't work. Then I placed it onto my desktop. It's still not working.

Is this something I need to bring up with the creators of THAT program? The whole reason I want this game so bad is because it runs better than TS3, but I miss creating stuff. I thought if I could figure out how to make stuff in TS4, I could maybe be happy lol.

Thanks for your help! I didn't see this posted anywhere. I'm sorry if this is a violation of terms (will gladly take it down if necessary).

When programs like Sims 4 Studio try to change something in your game (so not in Documents\Electronic Arts) it cannot do that. You can't just change an .iso.
When you copy the The Sims 4 folder from the mounted iso to your (external) hard disk the program should function properly.

Ohhhh.. so because I've done that and it's still not working, I should talk to the creators of the program.

Thank you for explaining that to me about the ISO. I don't fool around with them much so I'm pretty novice when it comes to them.

Welcome to the Forum to you as well @an9elica,

I know a couple of G4TW users who have been using this tool in the past with CODEX/G4TW versions of The Sims 4...and with no issues. I just registered on their Forum to download this thing. 

So the first time I loaded up, it auto-recognized my Origin-version of The Sims 4, which I did not want, because I want to specifically test for CODEX/G4TW-versions. So I went under settings and here goes:




The above location is where I have my own CODEX/G4TW install folder for The Sims 4. Set the location, and clicked on "Save". I then closed the program (!) and fired it back up again. I noticed that the initial "loading screen" took longer, because it was loading all DLCs. But after that I put a "creator name" and then clicked on  -> add CAS part swatch -> CAS. Next screen leads me to a selection of CAS items...so it appears to be working on my end?

Are you 100% positive you have correctly extracted the game installation folder, from the .iso? A simple test is, are you able to run the game (fine), from the extracted folder? Go under Game\Bin please, and use the TS4.exe or TS4_x64.exe for starting it up.

Yes, you shouldn't bother asking on mod-sites for Support, or if you can, at least try avoiding any mention of your game not being legit. Try not to take it personal; for one you need to keep in mind that these sites often heavily depend on advertising revenue, and "being about piracy" is one sure way to deter a lot of legit advertisers. 

Then, they might want to be "well-known in the Sims Community", which can include co-operations with C- or D-level celebrities (Sims YouTubers, official Sims developers/programmers, etc.).

Or, they might just disapprove of piracy for ideological reasons, though the two foregoing reasons are the most common ones. While G4TW is for the most part about providing these downloads and guides, we can also at least try helping people like you.
