Origin won't let me play! PLEASE HELP! Logged in and all!

★★★ Newbie

Hi! (Thanks for bothering to read my problems! Confusedmileyhappy: )

 

Well, I bought the game and installed the game. For about a days worth of playing, the game ran smoothly until I logged out of the Sims as I had a few times before. (Save and Quit!!! A while later, I went to play but Origin wouldn't give me the option to play. It said that my play time was exactly 24 hours and wouldn't let me play at all. I have looked around for help, but I can't find it. I'm not sue whether it's a glitch that can be fixed and occurs frequently or if my game/laptop is stuffed.

 

If you think you could help, please do! I would really appreciate it. Confusedmileyvery-happy:

Have you tried playing directly from the exe file? (Depending on your system, try looking in C:\Program Files(x86)\Origin Games\TheSims3\Game\Bin\TS3W.exe.)

Go to Task Manager, click the Processes tab, scroll to find Origin,exe. Click it, then click "end process". If there is "SimsLauncherW" or anything similar in list, end those processes too. Start Origin, log in, and you should be able to play again.

I had the same problem, i just had to download origin again and don't open origin at all after it's installed and restart my computer and then when i went onto my origin game launcher came up, it may say would you like to update your game, press yes so you don't have the same problem. Hope it works.

You might've left the game running in the background or something, try opening your task manager and look for Sims 3 Launcher, click on it and then end task, now try opening it again! Hope this helps those of you who had this problem!
