Please Help Me. I have a Lenovo laptop that I got for Christmas in 2014 & I've been playing The Sims 3 & The Sims 4 since then. The cheat bar is not opening for me on both The Sims 3 & The Sims 4 anymore & I tried everything! I tried finding EA's phone number but I can't find it at all. Plus, I tried figuring the problem I'm having on my own but I'm so stressed out because of this problem. Please Help Me! It would mean a lot to me if you did try to help me solve my problem. Please. I tried using Ctrl + Shift + C holding them down all together but it's not working on boh of The Sims 3 & The Sims 4. Please. I need & want all the help I can get.

It's usually another program interfering in the back.

 

Make sure you have no screenshot programs running

Hi there! So I had this same issue. Nothing was working, and for me, this was a deal breaker with my game. As a youtube, being able to set up story lines is huge. I then was reading, and it said any funky things on your top toolbar (Mac) can cause issues with the game. I simply quit the newer recording software and the cheat console worked fine, and I did not even have to restart my game. I know this is late, but I still hope this helps!

I am having the same issue, Windows 10. I have exhausted all the options with EA support, including clean boot, repair the game, create another windows profile, removing the SIms 4 folder from my documents and placing it in the desktop thus letting the game create a new folder.  Case #  #22915763. I was told it was a known issues for some users and to post here.

I've moved your post to this PC thread as the one you originally posted in was for Macs Standard smile 

 

Please follow the advice of others on here, the most common cause of your problem is screen shot software.



Using CC/Mods is at your own risk, EA are not responsible for making the game compatible with 3rd party content, the creator is.

Thank you. Considering I already performed a clean boot, which disabled any non Microsoft services and programs from loading, I do not see how screen capture software could be the issue in my case.

Ok. That's why I moved your post to here as I have no clue about anything Windows related I'm afraid. Have a read through the thread and see what other suggestions people have come up with. On Macs it's most often a broken CTRL key, a re-mapped keyboard, or altered Identifier Keys.

Do your other short-cut keys like m and ESC work ?
