Add cracked DLC’s to your legal The Sims 4

Add cracked DLC’s to your legal The Sims 4

When you bought The Sims 4 (and maybe also some expansions) it will be saved by default in the folder C:\Program Files (x86)\Origin Games\The Sims 4.
Now you want to add some cracked DLC’s but still require access to the Gallery, how can that be achieved ?

  1. Add the folder The Sims 4 from C:\Program Files(x86)\Origin games to the exceptions of your anti-virus program.
  2. Update your existing game in the usual manner via Origin.
  3. If you have not done this already, download the Anadius Updater and extract it with Winrar.
  4. Run the sims-4-updater and browse to C:\Program Files(x86)\Origin Games\The Sims 4
  5. Select Update.
6. You are asked whether or not your official game is in that directory – select Yes
7. On the next question about the crack click OK
8. Tick the wanted DLC’s and click on OK (No need to tick the legacy edition when you have a 64-bits computer)
Most probably your list of missing DLC’s contains far more items.


9. The Updater is now checking your present installation and downloads the ticked DLC’s
10. The DLC’s will be added to your The Sims 4 folder + a folder Game-cracked.
11. Make a shortcut for your desktop from C:\Program Files(x86) – Origin Games – The Sims 4 – Game-cracked – Game – Bin – TS4_x64

Play the Game

You can now play the full game, the additional DLC’s included, via the shortcut you made at item 11 above.
You can still play the original game + access to the Gallery, but without the cracked DLC’s, via the shortcut you already had.


When you want to play the cracked version Origin must not be active on your PC.
Never save a played session of the legal game, use that version only for access to the Gallery as it will destroy elements from your cracked game.


As both versions, cracked and legal, use the same directory to save your progress in the game (C:\Users\your username\Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 4), downloaded items from the Gallery will also be available in the cracked version.

Possible error

Unable to start:
The contents of your user data directory were created by a new version of The Sims 4 and cannot be loaded. Please update your game via Origin to play.

Depending on what version you tried to run.
Is it the legal version, update via Origin
Is it the cracked version update via the Anadius Updater
