Merged. If it's just that interaction, it could be an outdated mod, otherwise, reinstall your game.

FIX:


 

 

The problem seems to lay in Origin's updating service (which ignores the language-specific files sometimes) and not The Sims 4. To fix this problem follow these steps:

 

 


 

  • Close Origin (Click on "Origin" again and click "Exit")
  • Navigate to Origin's game install directory (default is "C:\Program Files (x86)\Origin Games")
  • Click on "The Sims 4" folder and press F2 and rename to "The Sims 4 Backup"
  • Open Origin again
  • Origin should think Sims 4 is not installed! This is normal. Click on Sims 4 and click Download. Accept all the popups asking language ect.
  • The game should now say "Downloading: 0%". At this point, close Origin again (Click Origin > Exit)
  • Go back to the installation folder and DELETE the new folder that says "The Sims 4"
  • Click on "The Sims 4 Backup" and press F2. Rename this back to "The Sims 4"
  • Open Origin again.
  • Origin will recognise the files and force an update on the game

 



Happy Simming!

Sims 4 strange in game code (***76A7E4F6***)

★★★★ Novice

Since the swimming pool update for Sims 4 a lot of the words in the game no longer appear and have been replaced with something like ***648FE196***. None of the words relating to the swimming items/clothes/actions appear and show something like that instead. All of the descriptions for pool products like the ladder just says ***DEBUG***. I could still use the items fine so I didn't mind it. Now after another patch update more words are missing and is affecting game play. Instead of showing what I have to do to advance in a career or gain points it shows the number and letter combination instead. I've no idea what they need to do. Sometimes when a sim is promoted or moves up the actions now don't change. Like if they get to logic level 5 and are promoted it stays saying they still need to get to logic level 5 to gain another promotion.

What can I do to fix this other than uninstalling the game and losing everything?

[Info Request] Bug on the latest patch

★★★★ Newbie

Hello, 

 

I've noticed people complaining about this problem with the Pools patch, but I had no issue with that one. It's with the latest, the one that adds the Business and Fitness career.

Everything related to both careers shows up as a code, not as words, even the career rewards, the action choice that shows up sometimes when the sim is at work, and promotion requirements. It's either an alphanumeric code, or "***DEBUG***"

 

I've been able to play it nonetheless, figuring out what is what or picking at random, but I haven't read of another person with the same problem as me. I figure it'll get fixed with the next patch but I wanted to ask about it anyways.
