[CURRENT ISSUE] Codes instead of text/ Blank text and bubbles

Re: Realm of magic world not working

★★★★ Novice

I've attempted each solution that was listed in the first post none of which fixed the issue, but I did however attempt something which has some effect of sorts. I switched the language to Norwegian, repaired the game through Origin, switch it back to English and then repaired it again. So now, somehow, everything that is included in the Realm of Magic game pack (aspirations, spells, actions, buy/build items etc) is still just blank, no text whatsoever. Every world description is somehow still in Norwegian, and the rest is in English.  Devil

 

It's perhaps worth mentioning that when I bought the Moschino pack I also had problems with blank text for all new items and actions brought with the pack, but it fixed itself after reinstalling the game.

 

Before this I've never had any issue with installing any of the expansion, game or stuff packs, and I have all of them. All of which are bought through Origin.

@seeurock55 Did you try the other suggestions on the first page ?

Unfortunately, I don't have any further suggestions on this issue.

Something seems to corrupt the downloads.

If you don't mind third party tools you can download S3Studio and look at the string file with (for those who have it) and check if there's readable strings in there).

I've escalated this again but otherwise, I'm at loss why the files are just not downloading properly.

Maybe deleting Origin cache files can help: https://crinrict.com/blog/2014/09/delete-origin-cache-files.html or reinstalling Origin from scratch.

@crinrict  Deleting Origin cache and reinstalling Origin didn't help with the issue

I've found a solution that seems to have fixed my issue.

 

I happened to notice that my set language for Origin was Norwegian whilst my set language for Sims 4 was English, something which I've never really given much thought about until now. So I switched it to English before I restarted Origin, and then I went and repaired Sims 4 one more time which seems to have added whatever files I were missing, because now all the text is present in game.

@crinrict I talked with EA and their experts said it's a bug they are going to fix. And the solution that you tagged me to see didn't work for me.

Sims 4 Language Glitch

★★★ Newbie

I got a Sims 4 Language Glitch

 

Hello everyone! So since i got this language glitch and i don't know how to fix it i asked the EA Community because EA itself won't help me. So i have not installed any language Mods that could damage my language settings in any way nor have any Mods in my Sims 4 Mods File. I tried to Repair it several times but it just won't work. I got the latest updates just FYI. I hope someone has an explanation or an answer to "How i can fix this mess". Thank you

This solved my issue but it is very very important to have the languages matching because Origin was in Spanish and my game in English, if you would consider changing those notes to before the description of the first method, I think it would help a lot. Thanks a thousand for the help!
