@SophieTrophy07 sadly, they said they would no longer update the game to work for 64bit computers.....nor would they add any extra content

@SophieTrophy07 about your game not starting.. I would ask over https://answers.ea.com/t5/Technical-Issues-PC/bd-p/The-Sims-4 . Also, it is pretty awful what they did with the Legacy edition (to many people). I hope they are still going to fix the bugs, because they do owe that to paying players who purchased with that promise.

Re: gallery dissapeared

@Sofiagirl123  The Gallery is not available in the Legacy Edition of Sims 4; neither are the other online features.  Additionally, Discover University and all new packs going forward won't run in the LE at all, even if you can download them without problems.

 

If you're not sure whether you need to be running the Legacy Edition, please run a dxdiag on your computer and attach it to a post here:

Or, if you happen to be on a Mac, please post its specs, as described here:

I don't work for EA. I'm just trying to help fellow players with their games.

No, the Legacy edition will not be able to run Discover University or any future packs. It will only receive bug fixes. So if you are not able to run in 64 bit there is only the option of buying a new computer. If you want me to check if your current PC is capable of 64 bit or can be upgraded with 64 bit Windows 10 Please post a DxDiag. https://help.ea.com/en-us/help/pc/how-to-gather-dxdiag-information/
You can attach the txt file directly to your answer.

Re: Can't Access Sims 4 Gallery Post S4 Legacy Edition Download.

★★★ Novice

Why are they treating an entire user base like peasants just because their machines are "older". It's not like we're running Windows 95 on a old hard drive. They don't even have an excuse for why they wont connect to the gallery or allow you to play packs past September. As a developer I know they can do this. Sounds like SERIOUSLY poor product management.

Sims 4 university not showing

★ Novice

I just recently purchased a Sims 4 bundle. One of the packs I purchased was Discover University. I was not aware that this expansion pack was not available on my computer type. I have an iMac OS X Yosemite. I’ve searched everywhere to see how I can fix this problem but I haven’t been able to really find anything. I also can’t find any way to contact anyone either. It’s becoming quite frustrating as I paid quite a bit of money for me to not be able to play.... Am I able to get any kind of refund or trade or anything???
