The key code I bought from eBay works on the game. I have tried it on my Mac and MacBook which r the latest ones and Also on my 2008 MacBook. Both do not work. It all works the origin download and the sims download but when I click the actual game it says enter the code again and I correctly enter it and it doesn’t work and says retry. Idk what to do. I’ve even bought another key code
