Sims 4 Update and Crash

[ Edited ]
★★★★ Newbie

I am able to log into Origin but since a couple of days when I installed a new free update, every time I click on the play button I get an error message. I tried re-installing Origin and that didn't help. I have the older version of it and my Mac is getting old but the game has worked with all the extras so far. What can I do? I want to play my game! The attached is a screenshot of the error message that I got. Thanks!

I've moved your post to this thread. It is a known issue with Lion.

A patch has just been released, 1.51.77.1220, to fix this issue. Please update your games Standard smile

 

  • Fixed an issue where Mac players on certain older versions of OS X were unable to launch the game. As a result, we rolled back a fix that was done for Mac players on 64-bit systems that eliminated a false error message which said, “The Sims 4 is not optimized for your Mac and needs to be updated.”
