Sims 4 isn't working, but origin is working fine

★★★★ Novice

Origin works fine, but Sims won't start. I'll click play it loads a black screen. Its like that for a few seconds and then goes it goes back to origin. It says I am playing Sims. I have tried everything. I have no CC, I have repaired the game, updated the game, given a software update to my Mac, and reinstalled origin. Please help. It is a new thing too my sis was playing yesterday.

@skootter92

Could you please disable Origin in-game and see if that helps - https://bluebellflora.com/2017/12/23/disable-origin-in-game/


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

@skootter92  I've moved your post to the Sims/Mac section.

I don't work for EA. I'm just trying to help fellow players with their games.
