★★ Guide



If you're having issues with a base-game issue, I would use the following steps:


1: Make sure your game is up-to-date. (In Origin, right-click Sims 4, select Update Game.)

2: Repair Sims 4. (In Origin, right-click Sims 4, select Repair.)

3: If those steps did not work, a good resource is Carl's Sims 4 Master List for troubleshooting Cheat Box Issues, you can find it here.

★★★★★ Pro

You appear to have a screen capture program running in the background that use this key combo. Either shut it down before running the game or see if you in its settings can change the key combo it uses.
