Sims 4 Tilde won't work

★★ Novice

I can't pause the game with tilde button. Is this a bug or something or there won't be an option to use it?

Having the same issue...

 

In C:\Program Files (x86)\Origin Games\The Sims 4\Game\Bin\Default.ini the keys are defined.

 

line 21:

 

[GameplayKeys]
tilde = |clock.toggle_pause_unpause
grave = |clock.toggle_pause_unpause
zero = |clock.toggle_pause_unpause
one = |clock.setspeed one
two = |clock.setspeed two
three = |clock.setspeed three
four = |clock.toggle_pause_unpause

 

I added the grave to check if that might work, since that is the name for the ` symbol. Unfortunately that does not work.

So I added the line 'four = |clock.toggle_pause_unpause' (as shown above in bol), and this works. I can now pause the game with the 4 key.

You can also shift all keys 1 to the right, so the 1 key pauses the game, 2 for speed 1 and so on.

 

Too bad this isn't really a fix, but just a workaround... At least this is better then using the P key :D. Hope it helps.

P works for me of course but tilde is next to 1-2-3 so it's way easier to use. It's hard to find P all the time.

Do the 1-2-3 keys work for you ?

 

Not sure if it's supposed to work. Do you have an US Keyboard ?

1-2-3 works everytime. And tilde worked when i last played but i when i restarted the game because of a freezing problem it stopped working again. I tried US keyboard but it didnt`t change a thing.

Cool. Thanks for that info.


Make sure to backup the Original or you might run into patching issues.

 

You might also need to redo after every patch.
