Problems With Login

I had an update yesterday for Origin, and I think it seemed to affect my launcher for Sims 3 also, excuse my vagueness but I am a bit of a techophobe.

 

Anyhoo, I hadnt changed my password for ages so as all was updated (at least I think it is) I am unable to log into my Sims account.  At first I login and it just seems to keep trying, the disc spins and spins so I thought I would try to do it again and this time it comes up with a message that there is a techy problem and to try again yesterday.  This was happening all yesterday and now when I am trying to log in to buy some items with points I have Its the luxury spa offer and is only available for a few days so its getting a bit of a bummer!!!!

 

Any suggestions, preferebly in dumby language that I will understand LOL!!!

 

One question also, if I change my Origin password will that change my Sims Launcher Password too???

 

Hope you are able to help

Re: Problems With Login

Yes, Origin and launcher password are the same.

 

  • Is this on the website or in the launcher ?
  • What error message are you getting ?
  • What is your base game version right now ?

    Open the launcher and check the number in the lower left corner.


Good Luck and Happy Simming

Re: Problems With Login

Thaks for your message, I have a message from another member, but its all a bit long and drawn out so I thought I would answer yours before I see whats what with the other one.

 

I actually realised after I asked about the Origin and launcher p/w being the same that I was having a bit of a dumb moment considering I have been using the same one for the last goodness how long that I have been playing Sims, but thanks for confirming that.

 

 On the launcher I can log in, but it shows on the launcher that  I havent.   I can get onto my game now, but it just says I am not logged in.

 There is no specific error message when I try to log into the Community Pages it just says something along the lines of 'please try logging in later, we    are experiencing technical diffuculties.  Like I said, it was not quite like that but much the same.  It has a section in blue print and a section in black.'

 The version is 1.63.4.024.017

 

I hope this answers your questions, I am a dumby at the techno stuff!!!!
