Installed the update today and now cannot play with ANY mods in the folder. Any ideas? Tried the backup method, didn't work.

 

Even worse is that since the update, Sims 4 has decided that my save game is from a "newer" version of the Sims - impossible when I'm using the latest version.

What did you do to solve your problem?
My problem is: the game started to update without my acsess and it stopped %46(i don't know why) i waited for 4 hours but nothing changed. So i dismiss the update and than i cant open my game again. What can i do? You said that you deleted some folders. Can you explain me? Frown

Then you probably have something incompatible and need to narrow down what it is.

if the solution above you didnt work, which was in

,y case, it can be also in the Mods map

i listed in that map everything on : Arrange By Date modified

because it shows you when you dowloaded Mod files

the same day, last week or long time ago...

if Mods flie is open  you see right above search Mods with

a spyingglass typ these files i mention in that

search bar... these file blocked my sims 4 to even

start it gives this code

 

8526c58:29f00e76 error code sims 4
-------
these mods give trouble

 

Pilar_Nature CD Recolour.package

 

._CountertopIslandRecolour.package

 

._CountertopRecolour.package

 

                                                

please look for these 3 files

 

if i find more i will update it! yes! it helped for me i hope

for you all too!

OTHER SOLUTION FOR THIS ERROR : 8526c58:29f00e76!

★★★★ Novice

first set your Mods map when opened it to: Arrange Date Modified

its shows you when you downlaoded Mods it can be handy it says, yesterday

last week and longer time ago.

sometimes i remove the yesterday file or the last week if i dont i can

look for ages, then put file by file back in to see where

the corrupted file is.if that doesnt work in my case it didnt but sometimes it does

than i have to take the whole Mods map cut and paste into a back up Mods map

on the desktop.search in there by open it see the search bar right above and typ

these files names i give you, these stopped my sims 4 from even starting.

worth a try! it did work for me!
