Sims 4 "application not responding"(mac)

★★★★ Newbie

Every time I try to open the game, it takes me the "the sims 4" loading page and then my cursor starts spinning. I've tried repairing the game, uninstalling it and reinstalling it, deleting all my cc, disabling origin in game, and resetting origin. Help?

Re: Sims 4 "application not responding"(mac)



Please can you provide more information about your Mac. Instructions on how to do so here -


If you move out the whole Sims 4 folder from Documents > Electronic Arts to your desktop then try to load your game, does it work?

Using CC/Mods is at your own risk, EA are not responsible for making the game compatible with 3rd party content, the creator is.
