My game is super laggy and I also get this message stating I should run it in 32 bit but when I right click on the sims 4 tile everything is basically marked out like I can't click on it. Can't check game properties can't repair can't u install nothing like that.

@Lamaco97  Please clear Origin's cache:

restart your computer, and try to repair.

 

For the lag and 32-bit message, please run a dxdiag and attach it to a post.

@Cora815  Does your computer run Windows or macOS?  If Windows, please run a dxdiag and attach it to a post:

If you have a Mac, you won't have the option to change to 64-bit, as the game has always been 64-bit in macOS.  Instead, Origin will launch the standard version of Sims 4 if it's supported, and the Legacy Edition otherwise.  If you're not sure whether your Mac supports the standard version, please list its full specs, including operating system, as described here:

@Spartangrl117  Even though your system would otherwise handle the standard version of Sims 4, your graphics chip doesn't support 64-bit gaming.  I don't think there's a way around this either.  So your computer is unfortunately stuck with the Legacy Edition of Sims 4.

Hello. I am in the same situation but reversed. Started from today I sow that the shortcut on my computer for the sims 4 is not avalable anymore. I entered the game from origin and when it opend I sow a message that saied: "The game is running in 32 bit mode wich may lead to poor staility. You can sweech in 64 bit mode in Origin" and a link to a site from ea for help. I looked there, of course, and I sow that I have to go in origin to "game properties", in Origin. I chlicked on it and showed me everything that it should , but with an important difference. At "advanced launch options", it didn't show enything other then "game language" and "command lines arguments". And not to say that I lost EVERYTHING that I've ever made... i'm disperate to get my game back on truck, I beg you, if someone can, to help me as soon as possible. I am seriously thinking to uninstall and reinstall the game, but I still have a bit of hope that I'll figure things out, one way or another, to get all i've build back....Thanks again and hope to hear from someone with a help asap.
