Re: my game is broken

@xietresims  Try repairing the game in Origin: open your game library, right-click on the Sims 4 icon, and select Repair.

 

If that doesn't work, move your entire Sims 4 game folder out of Documents\Electronic Arts and onto your desktop.  When you launch the game again, a clean folder will spawn with no content.  (Your saves and other content will be in the folder you moved, intact but not read by the game.)

 

If that doesn't work either, can you provide a screenshot or two of the issue?  There's an issue with text not showing up properly, but it would be helpful to see whether this looks the same.  Please let me know whether all text is affected or from just one or two packs.  Please also specify whether your computer runs Windows or macOS.

sadly that's not my issue, since it doesn't give any coding. the plumbob is spacing out and the text isn't visible, but the screen before that was normal. i don't have any mods in my game so that can't be the issue.

 

and i run it on a windows 10 laptop

@xietresims  Please run a dxdiag and attach it to a post.
