Re: NO SOLUTION TO SWITCH BACK FROM 32 BIT TO 64 BIT

@iamvakekz  Yes, that's the standard edition.  And yes, you can buy however many other packs you like.

 

If you want to create a new shortcut that works, you can create one from TS4_x64.exe, as jpkarlsen said.  It will be in the Sims 4 program files (not the game folder where your  saves are).  Unless you changed the default path in Origin when you installed the game, the location will be Program files (x86)\Origin Games\The Sims 4\Game\Bin.  Right-click on TS4_x64 and select Send to > Desktop.

@puzzlezaddict thank you so much for the help! I will create the shortcut for my TS4. No, I didn't change the location of the game on my computer. I appreciate all your help.

@sheryl380 What issues do you have ? You don't need the legacy edition.

Earlier last month I was forced to download the legacy version and was unable to get the original game back despite my system meeting the requirements, and when I attempt to open the regular game it closes right away or just doesn't open. I'm not sure if I missed an update since then or it has something to do with my mods, but I still can't open the 64-bit game.

 

Sorry, I replied a bit late to another reply. But I haven't really opened the game since then.

@sheryl380 Did you check if 64 bit is selected in Origin as described on the first page ?

It sounds like you have some other issue that's preventing the game from opening.

Could you try repairing your game and see if it now loads (after making sure that 64 bit is selected)

@puzzlezaddict Thank you, that was very helpful as to how to download the legacy edition. Mine is already set to the 64-bit version, but it still gives me the same message as if I didn't. 😢! Hopefully they fix it soon!

Re: How do I download Sims 4 Legacy?

@TeHeeJones  Can you play at all?  If not, please run a dxdiag and attach it to a post.
