Not working after 9/12/17 update

★★ Newbie

I updated the game today and now it will not run. I don't know if it matters but I am using the trial version. I was planning to purchase the full game but now I am afraid to if it isn't working. My trial doesn't run out until 9/13 so that isn't the problem. It was working fine before the update.

I am having the same issue as well and I have the full deluxe version of the game. I even removed every single mod and repaired the game and I still keep getting "The Sims 4 has stopped working" the second it tries to load.

Hi @blayd1021 and @lexigirl1228

 

Try resetting your user files as described in the factory reset described in this post: http://answers.ea.com/t5/The-Sims-4/FAQ-Troubleshooting-Steps-amp-Known-Issues/m-p/3621199

 

You won't loose anything. Just make sure to not delete any files  and make a backup.

 

Try on a new game with nothing added back first (start new game). If it works, put back your save game and try again. If it still works, you can start putting stuff back.

 

  • Options.ini (or just re-set all your settings manually)
  • Tray Folder
  • Screenshots/Videos/Custom music
  • Rest of the save games (leave out slot_00000001.save which is the autosave)
  • Custom content like clothing, hair, skins, make up ....
  • Mods (one by one, making sure they all still work)

The rest does not need putting back, cause they are mostly cache files that recreate or log files that are not needed for the game.

Happy Gaming

@blayd1021 I'm not sure what the issue is, but mine wouldn't launch after the failed update until I quit origin (as pictured), updated & restarted comp, then repaired the sims 4 from the drop down menu on its origin page.
