[MAC] Can't start The Sims 4 due to [85262c58:29f00e76:00000000:00000000]

I'm on a macbook air, running OS X El Capitan.

 

I can't start the sims. It keeps coming up with a message saying I can't open because there is a missing file blah blah.

I downloaded cc earlier today and some before that but the problem only just started.

I know the problem is probably the custom content, but how am I supposed to know which one it is when I have three hundred and forty three.

Is there a program that measures the level of bugginess or something? That could be great.

Ok, I figured out how to fix it without going one by one. I split all of my mods folder files except rescource.cfg into 10 folders.

I tested them by trying to open The Sims 4. The problem one was part j, which I split into 4 folders because it had 37 files in it.

I tested those 4 folders, and the problem was the third one.

I kept testing all the folders then splitting it into less and less folders until two files left.

I tested them on their own, and the problem file was one of the many hairstyles I downloaded.

It was a recolour of a base game hairstyle. 

 

This only took me about 10 minutes once I had all the folders sorted.

Thank you so much for the help!

Hi @xkaseysimmerx,

 

You have to try one by one, there's not a program to find the CC with the issue. Sorry for not having better news Frown
