EA Game Issues
Is anyone else having issues with the Origin to EA update? I was just trying to play The Sims 4 because I was considering buying all the expansions/stuffs/packs that I am missing. Sims does not load up. It acts like it is going too, flashes stuff across my screen like it is loading then just gives me static (like how TVs use to do). My search hasn’t indicated any fixes and that it is a common problem that is not resolved.

@icanbeyourmuse Yes. I had that problem as well. So I’m going to suggest a somewhat controversial solution that was suggested to me – and which worked for me, at least.
With the base game going free to play it’s no surprise whatsoever that pirates promptly worked out how to use that to their advantage. This software will allow you to fire up a legal base game and then add whatever packs and kits to it that you want. That, however, is not the point and not what I’m suggesting.
The trick is that to do so, the DLC downloader rewrites your config. And for some reason, I am definitely not coder enough to understand, that fixes this issue, at least for some of us.
TLDR; pirate software mysteriously fixes a game bug.
