sims 3 island paradise won't work

★★★★ Newbie

I have downloaded Island paradise off origin, I installed the game and whenever I go to play it, the game shuts off.

I went to update my game and it says to reinstall the game I don't know how to do that using origin???

I own a Mac it abides by all the requirements set to run the game, I have literally been looking for answers for more than 4 hours and still nothing

please give me answers. I have tried updating but its failed I know my game version must be wrong but how do I reinstall on my Mac using origin please give me step by step information I am not a massively high tech so guidance is appreciated thank you (in advance).

If those don't help, I would suggest posting in the mac forum at (make sure your language is set to US): since macs are not well covered on the AnswerHQ.

Good Luck and Happy Simmin
