Sims 4 repeatedly says it needs updates

★★ Newbie

Hi,

 

I recently upgraded my to a macbook air 2020 (from a macbook pro 2013) and reinstalled & updated all of Origin and Sims 4. My game repeatedly says it needs updates, but when I click the button, it says the updates are complete and it's ready to play. The play button is still orange and says update though. No luck in trying to play offline either.

How about if you launch the game from your Applications folder?

@Bluebellflora I had same problem today. Doesn't work from Applications folder either. I had Sims 4 installed on my Mac before and I downloaded Origin today to run it and it's not playing.

How did you run the Sims 4 without Origin before?
