PostSubject: Is there a way to start/launch ts4 without using origin? RESOLVED   25/9/2014, 23:39

I'm sorry Mamajanaynay if I'm not posting this in the right place.

Every time I start my ts4 it asks me to log into my origin account.

Now there is a patch out...I was reading about it here


And from the last comment posted by mandababy I can see that person's game is screwed up and what if I don't want to patch....?

I'm sorry for rambling... I'm just wondering if you have to use Origin to launch the game.

Thanks guys,

Sorry if this is a stupid question.

Hey RGirl, Sorry for the delay in getting back with you. Do you have the disk or is it digital? If you have the digital version you may have to sign in but with the disk I think you can start it up with the shortcut that was put on your desktop. Let me try something, I have the disk. I'm going to test my theory out, brb.

Well that theory failed. It still prompted me to sign into Origin. If you log in and you had allowed Origin to automatically update TS4, then I'm afraid you'll get this recent patch. Mine did while I was in game, well it started and paused until I left the game then immediately resumed updating. I'm going to do some more looking around and see what I can find out for you.

check this thread out on EA help

No worries MJ (i hope you don't mind if I call you that, I saw InaMac call you so I hope it's ok)

I have the disk but I thought I saw people saying that you can bypass that.  Because sometimes I can't get on-line.  Sometimes my internet is a b*%#ch crys

However the patch installed and my game survived  wootwoot


Off to bed cuz it's a real early day for me tomorrow  ugh :(

Thank you for your help    hugs

Sure you can call me MJ, it's easier than writing out the whole user name. LOL

Yeah, I looked over that patch and I didn't really see anything that would cause your game to go wonky...wait...I forgot we are talking about EA here. My bad. LOL

If in the future you don't want your game to automatically update log into Origin go to the upper left corner and click on "Origin" in that drop down menu go to "Application Settings" then under General scroll down to Updates and untick those boxes if they aren't already.

Also if for some reason you can't get on line you should still be able play your game, when bringing the log in box click on "Remember Me" and then you won't be prompted to log in all the time (just remember to not log out, otherwise you will have to log back in. Just Exit out of Origin) and you can again go under "Origin" down towards the bottom of the list in the drop down menu click on "Go Offline". I'm not positive but I do believe you'll stay off line until you decide to undo that option.

Glad to of been any help. luv u

Thank you so much for everything. I'll look for those things in the 'game settings'. Everything worked fine for this patch so it's all good.

Thank you for helping me with my technical questions cuddle

here is what I do, as I know origin updates when you sign in.

Before signing in I take out my mods folder and put it on my desktop.
Then I sign in. If there is an update it will not affect my cc stuff.
Once I have signed in and everything is updated I then minimise origin go back to my sims 4 folder and put back in my mods folder.

I do this each time I go to play sims 4.

@inamac

That sounds like a good idea but I'm surprised that you can have your game open (minimized) and put the mods folder back in. I would have thought you would have to exit the game to put the mods folder back in.

I took a chance and updated the game without taking my mods out.

Everything worked out thank goodness.

Omg...I hate the weekends. Too many people on the internet and it runs slower than molasses in January! Anywho...I never thought of taking out the mods folder because I only did that in TS3 when I used MasterController, sliders and slider hacks. It didn't cross my mind to pull it out with only clothing and accessories in it in this game. Shocked

Ya, I don't have mods, just cc.

But just so you know...if you have the invisible plumbob file in your game  (it's the one that's in the game/bin folder)...it automatically updated itself with the patch so you have to re-do the settings.  

I'm not sure if you guys used that file or not.

Ok, I'm off to do housework now crys
