sims 4 on Mac won't open

★★ Novice

hello all! I have been having a problem since last night with my Sims 4 game on a Mac. I am able to open origin and click the game but it stays forever not opening. Nothing pops up it just keep bouncing in my dock. I took out my mod folder like some people suggested and it did not work. I copied my saves folder and other sims 4 things and saved them on an external disk and then uninstalled the sims. Now however when I go to open up origin it says the game is still downloading (even though it tells me the game is ready to play) and it keeps bouncing. What should I do?

Could you please disable Origin in-game and see if that helps - https://bluebellflora.com/2017/12/23/disable-origin-in-game/

I've moved your post from the other thread you also posted in to this one. As well as disabling Origin in game, please run the reset tool - https://help.ea.com/en-gb/help/origin/origin/how-to-reset-origin-on-mac/
