I recently downloaded The Sims 4. Upon trying to load the game for the first time it went to a completely black screen for a couple of seconds then crashed. I tried repairing the game multiple times through Origin. I tried moving The Sims 4 folder to desktop as I have seen other recommendations. I have tried multiple times and it has never successfully loaded. My specs are:
MacBook Air (13-inch, Early 2015)
1.6 GHz Intel Core i5
8 GB 1600 MHz DDR3
Intel HD Graphics 6000 1536 MB
Is my Mac just not good enough to play the game?
Could you disable Origin in-game and see if that helps - https://bluebellflora.com/2017/12/23/disable-origin-in-game/
Using CC/Mods is at your own risk, EA are not responsible for making the game compatible with 3rd party content, the creator is.
