Update 3

 

The beta patch has been released today (28th August). If you are still running Yosemite please make sure you are opted into beta participation and download it.

 

Update 2

 

We're releasing a fix in around 2 weeks for the Beta version of Origin and a fix for all players roughly a week afterwards.

 

If you want to opt-in for the Beta version of Origin, you can do the following:

 

- Go to the Application settings by clicking on your username.

- Scroll down to Client update and slide the slider for "Participate in Origin Client betas" to the right (it has to turn green.

Update 1

 

We're currently looking into an issue where players are unable to download/install any games in Origin and where they cannot log in to Origin on a Mac.

 

Now there is a potential workaround where you install the latest OS for Mac, High Sierra, but please be careful with this! In the future, OS/X will no longer support 32 Bit applications like The Sims 3. Please read this article for more information: https://support.apple.com/en-is/HT208436

 

In order to install High Sierra, just go to the app store, search "High Sierra", download it and install it.

There is currently an issue with Origin on a Mac - https://answers.ea.com/t5/The-Sims-Mac/Empty-Game-Library-Server-Error/m-p/6947610#M13261



Using CC/Mods is at your own risk, EA are not responsible for making the game compatible with 3rd party content, the creator is.

Hello super annoyyed spend a lot of money on this site and now after all of the troubleshooting prescribed by your advisors I cant even access my games through origin. I understand the problem is being worked on but how much longer is this going to take its already been 4-5 days and its really disappointing that no solution has been found yet. Only game I play and its not working and I just bought new stuff packs. So not happyDisappointedConfusedAngry

I just tried to log into Origin and got in fine. All of my games were there. Have you simply restarted your computer? Sometimes that clears whatever may be causing you to not connect to Origin properly.
