Sims 4 won't start

★★★★ Novice

I've had this issue once before. It got fixed by me uninstalling the game and origin. Now, it happened again. After getting a bug in the game, I exited the game and then tried to open it again. I got the "initilization error at startup" message. I tried searching around possible solutions. Nothing worked for me. I uninstalled both origin and the game. I installed both again. I got the error again. I'm extremely mad because I don't remember any other game causing such issues.

It does.

 

Your processor is a bit weak and your graphics card drivers could do with an update.

 

Do you still get the initialisation error or does that work again now ?

Yeah I know my processor is a little trashy, I'm probably gonna replace it soon. My graphics card does a pretty good job, game runs very smoothly. Alsoo welp, I just uninstalled the game.. Just a disclaimer, this has happened to me about 3 more times, I'm seriously getting enough of these errors. Why are they even caused? I don't recall having such errors with other Sims games. I honestly hate having to delete my game everytime an issue occurs.And it also takes a long damn while to redownload.Disappointed

Initialization errors are usually either if your game can't access your hard drive cause of write protection/no space (not the case for you) or if Origin is corrupt (https://sims4.crinrict.com/en/2014/09/unable-to-start-initialization-error-at-startup/) or multiple other reasons

 

If you still have issues with that after reinstalling, please create a new thread in the tech forum: https://sims4.crinrict.com/en/2014/09/unable-to-start-initialization-error-at-startup/

 

We'll continue here once you got your game back up and running.
