When I try to download my Sims 4 from Origin (Mac) it will download around 2-4% then stops working (the Network Speed p/s gradually gets slower and slower). Its really stressful and a waste of money, please help

*Edit: to turn on Safe Downloading on Mac*

 

at the top bar where you will see the apple logo in the left corner then it says       origin      account      view      games    etc ?

go to origin then preferences

 

then the advanced tab and scroll down

The first step, checked in Origin/Application Settings/Advanced/Safe Mod Downloading-checked Enable Safe Mod Downloading and do not forget make sure you are the administrator, run the setup file Origin with Admin rights and restart Origin.

As suggested above, checking Safe Mode has worked for me and allowed the download to not freeze as it has been doing. The download is a bit slower but so far has been stable for the last 20%.

The safe mode that was mentioned seems to be doing the trick... although the network has dropped 7 times so far, its getting there slowly at 65%! Zzzz
Just keep having to force quit it and resuming the download.

Make sure you are the administrator, run the setup file Origin with Admin rights

.-update your Origin client to the latest Beta version /top left Origin menu, Application Settings - General
