Need help with opening game.

Post by shayleon on Fri 11 Jan 2019, 21:00

Hi, I know there are forums surrounding these issues but I can't seem to find them. Aside from the base game, I've downloaded GTW, City Living, Toddlers, Vampires and Bowling Stuff, Get Together, Parenthood, Fitness Stuff, Toddlers Stuff and Cats and Dogs.

I have two icons for the base game. When I open the TS4.exe - Shortcut, a notification pops up saying 'Run the game as administrator if it is the first time you start it. Always make sure Origin Client isn't running', 

When I open the TS4_x64.exe - Shortcut it says ' Unable to start: Cannot start because required game data is missing or damaged. Please repair or reinstall the game via Origin. [85262c58:29f00e76:00000000:00000000]'


Have I not installed every expansion/stuff pack yet? If not please send the links to the download page.Oh my... My game was running well previously just before I installed Toddlers, Vampires and Bowling Stuff, except for some minor things, for example, the Plumbob being a black colour.

Thank You!

Run the validator (in quick scan mode) and post the result here.

You're missing files from base game. Here's how to fix it:
1. Move your game to C:\Program Files\The Sims 4
2. Install base game (it will install to C:\Program Files (x86)\Electronic Arts\The Sims 4)
3. Move those files from C:\Program Files (x86)\Electronic Arts\The Sims 4 to C:\Program Files\The Sims 4:
data/client/clientfullbuild0.package
data/client/clientfullbuild1.package
data/client/clientfullbuild2.package
data/client/clientfullbuild3.package
data/client/clientfullbuild4.package
data/client/clientfullbuild5.package
data/client/clientfullbuild6.package
data/client/clientfullbuild7.package
data/client/clientfullbuild8.package
data/client/magalog.package
data/client/magalog2.package
data/client/resource.cfg
data/client/thumbnails.package

4. Delete C:\Program Files (x86)\Electronic Arts\The Sims 4
5. From "The Sims 4 - Get Together.rar" extract "EP02" folder and move it to C:\Program Files\The Sims 4.

If you installed all DLCs in proper order (guide: https://www.games4theworld.club/t21806-must-read-how-to-install-the-sims-4-correctly) this should fix your game.

At the top of the forum there's "All Games4theworld downloads" button.

Just keep in mind that G4TW releases of DLCs you're missing + the latest update will weight 32.6GB. If you want something lighter, consider using my repack. You're missing 5 DLCs released after Cats & Dogs and the newest patch, that will weight 7.45GB.

I moved 'The Sims 4' folder which I used for the validator from C:\Program Files (x86)\Electronic Arts to the C:\Program Files since there was no folder there already. I'm not sure if I was meant to do that, but I'm not sure how I'm meant to install the base game after. Do I just have to reinstall the base game from where I first downloaded it?

Yes and yes. Just install it. Because somehow you're missing the base game.

I managed to reinstall the base game and transfer most of the files to C:/Program Files/The Sims 4, but there was no magalog2.package file.

It's ok. Extract "Data" folder from "The Sims 4 - Cats & Dogs.rar" and move it to "C:\Program Files\The Sims 4".
