Well the monitor not going to work my husband has the wiring inside the walls then connected to the tv on the wall.  Remember I had know problems with sims and my tv until I updated Orgin. Now I can't play offline .So with that said I m doing research through EA, Google and sims forum tried a few things. 1 Repair game 2 Configure Game Properties in Orgin 3 Offline in Orgin. Found one step in EA it said to play offline go to Orgin click offline but truly  it's not offline because Orgin pops up. To make sure it's offline disconnect internet I did Orgin pops up I closed click on Sims icon it allowed the game to play now the the town is gloomy but not dark. But for Sims4 we have to play online.

 

Any other suggestions so l do not have to totally disconnect my internet. Again thanks for your patience

My last step I forgot to include it when Orgin pop up after I totally disconnect my internet. I signed in than I played. It said Orgin offline that was weird.

@1_savana,

 

That's not weird, if you play completely disconnected, Origin goes offline so it allows you to play your games without being connected. Very useful for laptops for laptops Wink

 

I need you DxDiag, please follow this instructions and upload it to this thread: http://answers.ea.com/t5/The-Sims-3/HOW-TO-DxDiag-PC-Only/m-p/1049584/thread-id/47181

Re: Dark screen on Orgin with Sims3!

@1_savana,

 

Everything seems to be okay on that DxDiag. Are you playing with mods or custom content?

No mods. I have bought premium content and individual stuff from the Sims 3 community website. No exchanges. They said the premium content and the custom content was safe because that what Sims 3 put out. The exchanges what people outside of Sims3 put out and those are not safe!

Re: Dark screen on Orgin with Sims3!

@1_savana,

 

Are you running the game with Compatibility mode enabled? If so, please completely disable it.

Also, right-click on The Sims 3 cover in Origin and select Game properties... Check Disable Origin in game for this title
