Please run the Origin reset tool then try again.

So something in your usual user account is causing the issue. Have you used an app that supposedly cleans up your Mac? Any antivirus running? Anything you can think of? After running the reset app you could then trash the Origin app from your Applications folder, re-download it and reinstall it.

I have done all this and when I launch the game it tells me to be aware that problems may occur when I play the game. I click play now and a pop up saying Unknown Error Occurred happens. PLEASE HELP!

 

I have uninstalled and reinstalled all expansion packs, sims 3 and origin at least 5 times, I've tried all the links suggested in the troubleshooting.

@Crazyterra

Do you have it set to launch when you boot up your Mac? It is set to as default unless you have changed it.

I have the issue where it won't open it'll bounce once like it's opening but then it just stops, I've tried resetting, Proxy, installing the latest version of origin, and it still does the same thing. 

I just bought the sims 4 3 days ago too...

Idk if it's possibly because I use el capitan or what but I can't update my mac because the other version don't support mine.

 

Mac Pro Early 2008

El Capitan

 

Please Help ;-;

@TaylaWaylaX, there were some issues with older versions of the Mac OS last year trying to run Origin. Please try resetting Origin. Also, the below link gives more tips on how to troubleshoot Origin itself.
