Nothing really works - sometimes I load the Sims4 and it works, most of the time it doesn't.

Re: Sims 4 keeps crashing on 2020 iMac 27

★ Novice

Hi,

I recently purchased a 27' iMac, whenever I launch The Sims 4 via Origin and select household to play, my iMac crashes. I've tried changing all of the game settings, and I've also tried removing The Sims 4 folder in my documents and starting again.

I wanted to find out if anyone has found a solution to this issue. Thanks.

@siennathesimmer 

 

Merged your bug report into this ongoing thread on the issue for your specific Mac. This issue appeared to have been fixed, sadly it's either back or something has triggered it to happen more often again.

 

Please can you provide more information about your Mac. Instructions on how to do so and what to provide here - http://answers.ea.com/t5/The-Sims-Mac/READ-FIRST-Sims-4-Mac-Help-Guides-and-Troubleshooting/m-p/4612...

 

Did this happen after a game update or OS update? Or has it always happened and is happening more frequently recently?

@siennathesimmer

I'm not asking for pictures, I'm asking for the full specifications of your Mac, as detailed in the link in my previous post. You may not think it relevant but I promise you it is Standard smile Could you also please attach the Config.log file from your Sims 4 folder to a post here.
