Add pirated DLC’s to your legal The Sims 4 Game for free (Windows only)

Pack System: Add pirated DLC’s to your legal The Sims 4 Game for free
+ full access to the Gallery + always automatically the latest version.

Again thanks to Anadius

When you have at least the Sims 4 base game via Origin or Steam you can add pirated DLC’s to your legal game for free.
Announcement by EA: From 18th October 2022, the base game will be free of charge, you then only pay for the additional packs.

  • Always automatically the latest version (Origin updates it for you)
  • No problems with anti-virus (there are no cracks)
  • Much smaller downloads
  • Easier to add missing DLC’s for free
  • Less problems with your CC
  • Access to the Gallery (no longer switching between legal and pirated versions)
  • No hassle with remid cookie
  • Play via Origin or Steam as if you bought all DLC’s from Origin/Steam
  • Save a lot of disk space (up-to almost 50 GB) as you keep legal and cracked versions in 1 single folder and you can delete the cracked installation folder

New DLC’s however must still be added manually (step 3), although much smaller in size.

Do not use any other system to update as such systems will overwrite your Legal Game folder and you will loose access to the Gallery and render your The Sims 4 as cracked


When you use the Anadius Updater or the Anadius Repack always answer Yes to this question ——>.
These programs will leave your Legal folder Game untouched and create a new Game-cracked folder inside your legal folder.

IMPORTANT:
In the undermentioned details we use as an example the folder C:\Program Files (x64) -> Origin Games -> The Sims 4
Depending on the language you chose for your original installation that folder could well be Les Sims 4, Die Sims 4, Los Sims 4, De Sims 4 or other.

It looks like that since the last update by Origin your cracked DLC’s no longer show up in game.

You must use the EA app now


Preparations in EA app

  1. Log in to your  account
  2. When you have not yet done this: Download the free base game for the Sims 4

 


Preparations on your computer (optional)

The Sims 4 with all DLC’s consumes at present some 51 GB of disk space (version 1.89.214.1030) and growing with every new DLC released.
Maybe you do not have enough space on your drive C: but you have ample space on f.e. your drive D:
How to move your legal The Sims 4 from drive C: to another drive ? Don’t move it yourselves with copy/cut/paste

  1. Log in on Origin
  2. Go to My Game Library
  3. Right-click on the picture of the Sims 4
  4. Select Move Game
  5. Browse to the drive you want your game to be moved to
  6. (optional: Make a new folder, such as My Sims Games)
  7. Select the folder

Your complete folder The Sims 4 including your already added pirated DLC will be moved to the new location.
It will also amend the register-entries, your shortcut and all other elements.

When you also download this small file and put it on your desktop, it will open your legal installation-folder by just double-clicking it.

STEP 1

  1. Download a small file EA DLC Unlocker v2.
  2. Extract with Winrar
  3. Right-click on Setup and run as Administrator
  4. As this is a small .bat file you can’t use the mouse, so type 1 after Choose option Number
  5. When that is done, type 2
  6. Type 14 for the Sims 4
  7. Type Q to exit
When you right-click on setup to open as Administrator you should see

 

 

 

 

 

 

As long as you don’t see EA Desktop detected, there is something wrong with the Administrator status and you get an error message.

IMPORTANT:
When you switch to the new EA app, you must re-apply the Unlocker as it should detect the Desktop version.
You must first type 5 to uninstall the Origin based settings, then type 1,2,14 and q again.
The Unlocker should show Desktop detected instead of Origin detected

 


STEP 2

Locate your legal installation-folder 

For Origin: Probably C:\Program Files (x64) -> Origin Games -> The Sims 4
For Steam : Probably C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\The Sims 4

When you still have a shortcut for your legal game, right-click on it and select Open File location.
You come in Your Installation folder\Game\Bin. Click on arrow-up and you are in Your installation folder\Game. Again arrow-up and you have found your Installation folder.

You can also download this small file, double click when the download is completed and you’ll see your legal installation folder.


 

STEP 3 (To add missing or new DLC’s)

Copy the DLC’s from your cracked game (If you have a cracked game) Add DLC’s via the Anadius Updater:
  1. Open the installation folder for your cracked game
  2. Select the folders for the DLC’s and copy these folders to your legal Game
    Do not copy the folders Install, Data, Delta, Support and Game
  3. Still missing DLC’s: either use the Anadius updater or use one of the other methods (see below)
  1. Update your legal game (when there is a new version)
  2. In the Updater browse to the directory of your legal game, just select the folder, don’t open it.
  3. Click on Update
  4. When prompted about your legal game, select YES
  5. Tick the missing DLC’s
  6. Click OK

Other methods for adding DLC’s: Suitable for Windows and Mac

Download via torrents (selectable) in Winrar format Direct downloads in .iso format (selectable) All DLC’s in 1 iso download
  1. Download the torrent for EP’s for the packs in Winrar format
    Download the torrent for GP’s for the packs in Winrar format
    Download the torrent for FP and SP for the packs in Winrar format
  2. Make your selections
  3. When downloads are finished, select the .rar files
  4. Right-click on the selection and click Extract
  5. In the pop-up window search for the installation folder of your legal game
Here you can select and add Packs in .iso format (no specific order required)

Go to this Page

or use the Anadius Updater (windows only)

  1. Download the torrent for the all-in-one DLC’s
  2. When download is finished mount the iso
  3. Copy the folders of the DLC’s to your legal installation folder.


Troubleshooting “Game not owned” or “download to use” or Scenarios do not appear

Start the game, click on the Packs tab, hover over the DLC icons (the ones you downloaded). Hover, not click! What does it say?
“Not Owned” – you didn’t follow the Unlocker instructions.
“Download to Use” – you put the DLC files in the wrong place, did not extract them or did not update the config file
“Owned” – everything should be fine.

Best way to solve this problem:

  1. Delete your present EA DLC Unlocker
  2. Download the latest EA DLC Unlocker from Step 1
  3. Extract with Winrar
  4. Run Setup as an Administrator
  5. Select 5 to undo earlier installations (you probably see an error message, in that case select 5 again)
  6. Select 1,2 and 14

When I start the game all my DLC’s are gone (often after an update)

When you installed the (free) legal base game via the EA app and ran the unlocker, you must not start the game via Origin.
Likewise when you installed via Origin and ran the Unlocker you must not start via the EA app.

When however this happened to you:

  1. Run the EA DLC Unlocker by right-clicking Setup and select as Administrator.
  2. Type 5 to uninstall previous installation
  3. Type 1, 2, 14 and q again.

Check the file location for your legal game

Sometimes users have created an installation folder that does not correspond to the settings in Origin.
When you start your game via Origin it will always lead to the folder as described in Origin and not to your self-made installation folder.
Consequently, added DLC’s in that self-made folder are not recognized.

Update the config file

After you added DLC’s to your legal game you must start your legal game either via Origin or via the shortcut you made from the The Sims 4\ Game\Bin\TS4_x64.exe in the legal folder of your The Sims 4 game.

The unlocker will then search for the DLC-folders in your legal game and updates the config file with the DLC’s you added.

Check your config file

When you now open the EA DLC Unlocker your added DLC’s should be visible when you run setup as an administrator, type 3,  open g_The Sims 4.

As you can see from this picture the latest kits have been added and should now be treated as Owned.

When all DLC’s upto and incl. Werewolves are added, the count (NAM) should be 81
Any figure lower than 81 means you do not have the latest version of the unlocker.

Easy way to check your installed packs

Some people complain about “not installed packs”.
There is a simple way to check this:

  1. Move, not copy,  the folder C:\Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 4 to your Desktop
  2. Run your game and you’ll see a welcome screen for each and every package installed
  3. When you only see your legally bought packs, Close your game and re-run the EA DLC Unlocker.
  4. Start your game again
  5. When you’ve seen all welcome screens, you know that your selected packs are included in your game.
  6. From the file on your desktop (item 1 above) copy the folder The Sims 4 back to C:\Documents\Electronic Arts

Simple way of installing all 18 languages in one go

Please bear in mind that when you installed the game via Origin, only 1 language is available, meaning that when you installed in English you cannot change to f.e. Norwegian.
In such cases you shouid re-install the game in Norwegian in Origin.
Also downloads from many other sources are often in 1 language only (such as English or Spanish)
Don’t re-install the game however, but:

Download the Language Strings, extract with Winrar and copy all folders to your installation folder
in case of genuine Origin downloads C:\Program Files (x86)\Origin Games\The Sims 4.
When you have all languages installed, download the Language Changer, double-click and select your language.
In our downloads all languages are already installed.
You can activate the Language-changer from anywhere on your computer, no specific folder required.

DLC-toggler

As the toggler searches for the crack it won’t work in the legal version simply because there is no crack.
You can remove unwanted DLC’s by deletion of the folder for the DLC.

Video on how you can add pirated dlc’s to your legal game

Basically it all comes down to:
1. Adding DLC’s to your legal The Sims 4 folder
2. Running the latest EA DLC unlocker
When you do it right, it can’t go wrong. It’s so simple.

  1. hello, can someone please help. so i downloaded the dlc files and mounted them, but when i try to copy them into the sims 4 installation folder, it tells me i dont have enough storage and i need to free up space, but i already have them downloaded?? so i dont understand why i need to free up an additional 33gb (the amount of gb the dlc pack was) just to copy them to the folder. also i had about 50gb freed up as it was said to do.

  2. Okay so the step one say i should click Yes when being asked about Legit Game because i ntsalled Sims 4 on Steam

    But my updater says “No crack found, check back later!” ???

  3. I followed the steps but
    The packs dont appear in the game. They only appear in the main menu. In the EA app they appear unowned

  4. Hi all,

    I have been playing successfully for a few weeks using your method of adding pirated DLCs to my legit game. Today I tried to run the executable and it opened the EA app, but the game never started. I ran the DLC unlocker first uninstalling then reinstalling and tried again, and the same thing happened. I tried repairing the game through the EA app and the game still won’t run. I used the DLC updater and selected yes that I have a legit base game then ran the DLC unlocker again. Is there something I missed or an issue happening right now? Or is this something I need to troubleshoot on my end? Anything you all could suggest?

    1. Are you using mods ?
      When yes, move, not copy, the folder The Sims 4 from C:\Documents\Electronic Arts temporarily to your desktop
      Start your game again. It looks like you have a brand-new game without your own creations like your own Sims and Houses.
      When it now starts correctly, from the file on your desktop, copy the folders Saves and Tray back to the original location C:\Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 4.
      Leaves you with the tedious task to find out which mods caused the problem

      When you are not using mods:
      Make sure that you start your game from the legal installation folder Game\Bin\TS4_x64 and not from Game-cracked\Bin\TS4_x64
      If necessary re-run the EA DLC Unlocker, first type 5, then type 1,2,14 and q again.

      1. I downloaded the Unlocker and followed the steps. When I enter the game and click on a pack it says that I own them but I do not see them in the game. I’ve done 5, 1, 2, 14, q several times and it still doesn’t work.

  5. Hello could you please help me ive been following the steps but when i went to setup and pressed open as administrator and entered 1 it says “ea_desktop\version.dll missing, you didn’t extract all files or your anti-virus deleted it.” Ive been trying to fix it for hours if you can help thatd be great!

  6. I did everything correctly and played the game like this for couple of months but today after i saved and exited the game i wanted to play again and now it says not owned to every single pack. I redownloaded dlc unlocker and tried to repair with anadius updater but it still says not owned. What am i supposed to do?

    1. Please help i downloaded everything, it said all done enjoy the game. I have the legit copy through ea so i clicked the TS4_x64 found in my C:\GamesTS4\Game-cracked\Bin

      However when i click it i get an error ” The code execution cannot proceed because anadius64.DLL was not found. Reinstalling the program may fix this problem.”

      What am I doing wrong?

  7. Hi! I’m loving the unlocker. I’m wondering what to do when origin is finally discontinued and I’ll have to switch to the EA app, because I bought the basegame through origin so it wouldn’t work with the EA app (I tried lol). Is the only way to get it to work uninstalling the game, downloading the basegame on a new account using the EA app, reinstalling it all then running the unlocker again or is there an easier way?

    1. When you log in to the EA app with the same details (username, password) as you did for Origin, you can use the EA app and your legal base game should show.
      You can still use the Unlocker.
      You’ll have to type 5 first to uninstall the Origin version of the Unlocker and then 1,2,14 and q again.

  8. boa noite..eu estalei o app da AE ESTALOU TD CERTO FIZ OS PROCIDIMENTO A CIMA..AI ABRI O APP DA AE COLOCO MINHA ID E SENHA MAIS O APP NÃO ABRI PARA EU BAIXAR O JOGO.

  9. when i try to extract the file of EA DLC Unlocker it gives me error and doesnt open the setup. how can i fix this?

  10. GUYS IVE FOUND THE SOLUTION. basically this website is to just UNLOCK THE DLC meaning you have to SEPARATELY DOWNLOAD THE DLC PACKS ITSELF and put it in the right folder. this is why it says “you already owned this pack” but when you hover over it, it says “download to use” so the dlc unlocker works perfectly fine, you just need to still download the dlc. the same person who made this unlocker has the DLC PACKS for download ( mac and windows ) ON THE THIRD POST of this website https://cs.rin.ru/forum/viewtopic.php?p=930237#p930237 there you can find on HOW to download the dlc and WHERE to put it. NOTE the third post is for people with the LEGAL GAME and want to use the HACKED DLC.

    want to say this just in case
    in that third post under the name “DLC only: ” there is another link to download the dlc packs ( you have to make a account to see it because it’s hided) when you click one of the 2 links you get send to another page and there you have options to pick which website you want to use to download. in my case the only one that worked for me and my mac was the link Next to “multiple hosts”

    1. im a bit lost trying to follow this downloading again thing? I already added all of the SP and other idk what they are called packs but it still doesnt show in game when i play :/

      1. I added everything to the folder and unlocked the DLCs it says I owe them but they dont show up in the game..any idea what I could do?

    2. I’ve tried everything to make an account on the website u shared but it doesn’t work😭
      It keeps on telling me that I sorted the information in wrong categories and I don’t really understand what it means
      I have the legit game tho and I wanna download the dlcs what should I do🥲
      Can u maybe link the hidden links here as a reply to my comment? Or if u have any other solution help me pls🥲

      1. You can download the DLC’s from our own site in 4 different manners:
        1. a torrent for all DLC’s in 1 folder in .iso format (download, mount and copy the folders from the mounted iso to your legal installation folder of the Sims 4
        2. a torrent for all EP’s (here you can select your requested packs, extract with Winrar and copy the extracted folders to your legal installation folder)
        3. a torrent for all GP’s (here you can select your requested packs, extract with Winrar and copy the extracted folders to your legal installation folder)
        4. a torrent for all SP’s (here you can select your requested packs, extract with Winrar and copy the extracted folders to your legal installation folder)

        To make sure that you find your legal installation folder, download this small file, double-click and it will immediately show you your legal installation folder

  11. Anadius Updater has a Trojan. Very strange. I’ve heard many say positive things from it but I would find an alternative source if you were to use Anadius Updater.

    1. I dont know where to comment I just wanna say that i have an issue. So when I launch the sims 4 I immediately see that the I have the packs and all that and it says “you own this pack” when I click view. But as soon as I start playing nothing from the packs is in the game, no additional clothes, worlds, furniture nothing more than basegame items can anyone help me because if I cant fix this problem I promise i wile suicide. Thank you

          1. Did you re-download and re-nstall the EA DLC Unlocker and typed 5 first to undo previous settings and then 1,2,14 and q ?
            You can check for installed DLC’s by simply moving (not copying) the folder The Sims 4 from C:\Documents\Electronic Arts temporarily to your desktop.
            When you then start your game, you should see all the welcome screens of the DLC’s installed.
            When correct, you can move the folder from your desktop back to C:\Documents\Electronic Arts.

        1. I cant reply to your newer message but yes, i did ALL of those even watched the 2 videos of the old man explaining what to do with the dlc toggler and did EVERYTHING even the moving the sims 4 file to desktop and back. I am presented w the packs when i enter like if you’re talking about when i go to my packs and it says owned then yes but again when i jump into a game none of the stuff is there except for legal basegame.

          1. now i have just noticed that it also says download to play when i hover over a pack i have what does that mean now?

          2. also when i go to build mode in game and i select “filter items” > “packs” and try to click on a pack it says “you do not have this content” :(((

          3. It’s obvious that you did not add DLC’s to your installation folder, or did not unpack or mount the DLC’s before copying these to the installation folder.
            and/or
            You did not apply the EA DLC Unlocker properly
            and/or
            Some mods are preventing items in your game.

            Possible solutions:
            1. Download this small file and double-click it. It will immediately show you your legal installation folder where the DLC’s must be placed.
            2. Download the full set of DLC’s HERE, mount the iso and copy the DLC’s to your installation folder
            3. Re-download and re-run the EA DLC Unlocker, run setup as Admin, type 5 to undo previous settings, then 1,2,14 and q

          4. where do i place DLC’s? in the data or game folder? or just where the instalation takes me?
            also how do you mount iso file (not image) in windows 7?

          5. You place the DLC’s in the installation folder of the Sims 4, the folder where you also see folders like Data, Delta, Game etc.
            Just place DLC’s in that main directory of the Sims 4.
            For mounting iso’s ion Windows 7 see this page

          6. I have problems with mounting the iso, is there any other way you can just mount the iso and put a link to download the finished file? also when i try to open through wincd or poweriso it says the following:
            – file damaged or invalid library with picture
            – insert disc in cd drive
            – no media detected/ no media in the drive
            (doing this by all steps without skipping, please help ive been trying things for MONTHS)

    1. GUYS IVE FOUND THE SOLUTION. basically this is just to UNLOCK the dlc. you still have to DOWNLOAD THE DLC PACKS SEPARATELY and put them in THE SIMS FOLDER itself. thats why it isn’t in your game yet and thats why it says “you already owned this pack” and when you hover over the packs it says “download to use”. the same guy who made this dlc unlocker has also the dlc packs. you can find the his guide on the third post of this website for mac and pc https://cs.rin.ru/forum/viewtopic.php?p=930237#p930237 there you can find the steps on WHERE to download the dlc and HOW to put it in. NOTE the third post is only for people who already has the LEGAL GAME and want to use the HACKED DLC.

  12. Hi, could you please help me? I followed the steps but when cheking my packs, it still shows the “download to use” thing. I deleted and redownloaded the Unlocker, but the same thing happens. What should I do? This is what the Validator says:

      1. Is this only happening when you play The Sims or also with other programs ?
        It could be a problem with cooling, especially when you play on a laptop. Check the in-/outlets of your computer. (laptop also underside, don’t play on a soft underground like a bed or a carpet or even your lap)

  13. I downloaded everything and the game has recognized all my packs and everything, but when I go to start a game it doesn’t load. It just plays music and the diamond keeps spinning on the loading page. Am I doing something wrong?

      1. Hello
        I downloaded the folder and followed the instructions, when I launch the game I see that all the DLC are owned but when I want to start a game I don’t see anything about the packs
        did I miss something?

  14. why do i have to re-install DLC unlocker, each time I turned off the computer, I turn it on, I always have to install dlc installer… every day… why??

    1. Because your game opens via Origin and the Unlocker is based on the EA app

      Open the Unlocker, type 5 to uninstall and then 1,2,14 and q again.
      When you have both Origin and the EA app on your computer, the unlocker always selects the EA app. so make sure that your game does not start via Origin
      Start your game via the EA app.

      1. but i dont have Origin on my laptop, i always use EA APP and i still have to do the “5-1-2-14-q” combination

  15. Hi, when I want to start the game, it ask me whether to play online or offline. How do I fix it? I tried uninstall and reinstall dlc unlocker and still the same. When I try open via ea app, the same dialogue still appear.

    1. Because you do not start your game via the legal folder. The question about on- or offline only occurs when you start a cracked game.
      To find your legal folder, download this file and run it.
      It shows you your legal folder, open folder Game, open Bin, double-click TS4_x64. Or make a shortcut of it.

        1. When the Updater prompted you about your legal game you selected No.
          Now your legal folder Game is overwritten by the crack.
          Repair your legal game via the EA app.

  16. So everything is downloaded but there are not textures on anything and the worlds dont work! My game lags and crashes because of this. I dont know if its one of the packs themselves or if its something else. Please help!!!!

  17. Hiii! So the DLCs disappeared and then I did everything over again. But, when I use the updater it doesn’t show the DLCs like Get to work or Cats and dogs or Seasons. And I want those ones. Does this mean that they are already installed? Or is something wrong?

    1. It means that these packs are already incorporated in your cracked game.
      When you have cracked and legal versions in 1 folder with Game and Game-cracked, all you have to do is Run the EA DLC Unlocker.
      Type 5 first and then 1,2,14 and q.

  18. Hi, the updater worked fine until today. The Sims says that it does not own any packs or DLC’s anymore. How can I fix this?

    1. Same thing happened to me today.
      It used to work just fine until today when o play the game via ea it says i don’t own any packs, however when i play the game through the cracked version it works fine with all the DLCs.

      1. Redo the EA DLC Unlocker, type 5 first to delete the Origin settings, then 1,2,14 and q to install the EA app settings.
        When you have both Origin and EA app, the updater always show the app settings. (Desktop detected)

  19. Hi so I’m trying to complete step one but it keeps saying either failed something or bad option. I’ve followed the previous instructions to a T but this part won’t let me move forward

  20. Hi I downloaded this a few days ago and it’s been working fine. (Thank you for that) I’ve gone onto the sims today and it now says I don’t own any of the dlc packs. How do I fix this please?

  21. Hi, my maps are locked and it only shows two maps. I have 0 legal dlcs and I only used the dlc downloader to get every dlc. I’m using EA app, all of my dlc says owned so idk whats going on. Thanks!

  22. Hi, does anyone else have a problem with the City Living pack? I put it in my game but when my sim goes to visit other apartments all the neighbors are standing in the hallway and there’s no furniture in the apartments.. but i hear sims using the bathroom and stuff. Anyone experience this?

  23. Hi, so i installed all the dlcs and it was working fine for weeks, but now when i try to open the game it says ” unable to start : initialization error at start up” i dont know what to do because it doesnt matter if i try to play online or offline it just wont work. hellp!

  24. Hi! Every time I open the game it says: One or more items may not be installed on your computer or the EA account that is currently logged in does not own these items. One Build mode item has been removed.

    I checked the Anadius updater and it didn’t prompt me to install anything missing.

  25. I did everything, Yesterday it worked fine, but now i keep getting the game cant run, or throughout EA, Im getting the unable to start, problem on our end ?

    Ive updated my Visual CC and all but i cant open the game now, i try repairing the file through EA, running the updater again , opening it through the actual file or the shortcut it always says ”Cant open its a problem on our end”

  26. Hi, I had installed all the dlc, and thank god it work but the problem is, everytime I load the game, my sim is disappear. My sims icon on the bottom left ,beside calendar is turn white and there is sign like flash “care for self”, like my sim is far away from home but it isn’t and can’t do anything with that. The only way I can continue my game is I move my sims to another household.please help

  27. hello, ive updated my game with the anudius system and it says i have both of the new kits, however the thumbnails dont show up and the items are not showing up aswell. any advice thankyou

  28. Hi, what if everything works perfectly but I only have 3 worlds that are in base game? Everything else that is from packs is available

  29. Bonjour, encore. J’ai réussis a tout reprendre, ils suffit de faire une réparation a partir de l’app EA, et mon jeu repart comme si de rien n’était arriver, et tout mes pack et kits sont instalé, même les deux nouveau, sois pastel et objects quotidiens. Merci tout de même. Si cela peut aider, et que cela arrive au d’autre, faites une réparation a partir de EA et tout est nickel.

  30. Bonjour, j’ai fait la mise a jour et ajouté les deux derniers kit, sois object du quotidiens et pastel, mais lorsque je veut relancer le jeu via EA app. ou sois directement sur mon racourci a partir du dossier du jeu légal, il me met ceci
    Do you want to start the game online? This will enable online features.
    (e.g. in the Sims4 you will be able to use the in-game Gallery)

    “Create shortcuts” creates two shortcuts to skip this dialogue.

    Avant hier je pouvais lancer mon jeu normalement. J’ai désinstaler et réinstalé le EA DLC unlocker V2 par 2 fois et cela me le met a chaque fois. Je précise que j’ai instaler la maj et l’ajou des deux kits a partir de Sim 4 updater. SVP que dois-je faire? Dois-je désinstalé et tout réinstalé a partir de l’app EA? (je parles du jeu légal) et ensuite réinstaler les pack et kits? Merci pour votre réponse.

    1. 1. Ouvrez l’application EA et démarrez votre jeu là-bas.
      On dirait que vous démarrez un jeu cracké et non légal.

      2. Ouvrez l’Unlocker, tapez 5 puis 1,2,14 et q

  31. I just installed everything & I seen that in order to use the online version I should use an account that doesn’t have other games, if I create a new ea account & add ts4 base game would I have to reinstall the ea unlocker since I’d be missing the legal dlc’s I already had?

  32. I have a question… Do I need the DLC Unlocker to download DLCs from Anadius Updater? And for them to work? I have a legal base of the game.

  33. i did every step, and its worked very well, but today i used an antivirus and deleted some doobles files, and then i have to update the game, now when i try use unlockdlc, i put the number 1 and see the message : CONFIGS FOLDER CREATED, MAIN CONFIG COPIED, FATAL ERROR: PERMISION ERROR, COULD NOT INSTALL THE UNLOCKER
    someone now how to fix it?

      1. I tried without antivirus on and it’s the same; drivers are ok, so I dont’ understand the issue; I used Anadius for DLCs

  34. My problem is that the game, with all DLCs, works but after a few minutes closes himself or PC crashes with blue screen of death and reboots automatically

  35. why is mine not working? it says “unable to start: the contents of your user data directory were created by a newer version of the sims 4 and cannot be loaded. please update your game via origin to play.” then some codes inside []. please help me.

    1. Probably you started a cracked game with a lower version number than your legal game or vice versa.
      Make sure that your legal and cracked game have the same version number, or simply start your legal game.
      You can find the folder of your legal game on your computer by downloading this small file and double-clicking it. Open the folder Game -> Bin -> and start the game with TS4_x64 (make shortcut for your desktop)

      To be able to play your present game you can delete the file GameVersion from the folder C:\Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 4 but sooner or later you will encounter the same problem again.

      1. hi sorry to bother, i’m also having this problem but i do not understand how to update my cracked game…

  36. hello. how do i add sims 4 demo on ea in browser? i am stuck. i’ve the steps and now in the part where i have to log in using remid cookie. thank you.

    1. Since the introduction of the free legal The Sims 4 the Sims demo no longer exists.
      Download the legal base game of the Sims 4 and you no longer need the remid cookie to access the Gallery.

  37. I own the BG on steam, decided to install some kit and gameplay packs to test the waters. So far bb and cas stuff work fine, but the moment I try checking out the worlds it’s just a white screen. Not to mention the button to change the neighborhood stories doesn’t respond. I added the DLC via the torrents. Did I do something wrong?

  38. Hello, I am not sure what went wrong, but basically, I have a legal base game (before sims 4 went free) and the anadius updater works very well, but now I have one very apparent problem – my remid cookie is invalid now, according to the updater. It wasn’t before, it’s actually the same remid code that I’ve always had, so I don’t know where the problem occurred. Huge thanks if you can help! ><

  39. Hello, I have the base game via the EA app, when I open the games the packs are marked owned but in game (CAS…) the packs do not appear owned. How to do it please?

    1. Re-apply the EA DLC Unlocker.
      First type 5 to uninstall the Origin Settings
      Then type 1,2,14 and q again.

      When that doesn’t solve the problem, run the Validator to check for missing or misplaced files. Open the outcome in Discord format.

        1. It worked. And this is the result:

        1. Delete the folder EP01 in the folder Delta.
          The same applies to the folder SP18
          The folder EP01 in the main menu (correct location) but apparently not fully downloaded so delete it as well.

          Make it easy on yourself and use the Anadius Updater, it will place all missing DLC’s in the correct folder.
          Lead the Updater to the installation folder of your legal game, just select it, don’t open the folder. Tick the packs you want and when prompted about your legal game click Yes.

  40. The tutorial is very simple and straightforward, thank you very much for sharing the free DLC’s with the rest of us!

  41. Hi
    I want to be able to run the Sims 4 via the new EA app because I want to make sure I can still play even when Origin is not available. Will I still be able to do this? How can I install all add ons through the EA App?
    Thanks

    1. You can run the legal base game of the Sims 4 via the EA app.
      Once that is installed, you can add the DLC’s free of charge with the EA DLC Unlocker.
      Bear in mind that when you change from Origin to the EA app, you MUST adjust the Unlocker likewise. In the Unlocker first type 5 to uninstall the settings for Origin, then type 1,2,14 and q again.

  42. Hi I am sorry. Please help. I have done everything. All the packs etc show up but they all say “download to play”. But the instructions to solve this are unclear. I know it says probably in the wrong place, but I’ve moved it to about every folder I can think of. I have also redone the installer (1,2,14,q). I am at a loss, I have been trying for days to make it work. Also yes I did download the “small file that opens installer,” and that location did not work either.

  43. Hi
    After my game was updated, the dlcs stopped working and it keeps saying i dont own them. is there any way to fic this?

  44. I keep having to re-apply the dlc unlocker. after a day or so i get the red notification symbols for the packs saying that i don’t own the dlc’s. So it does work, it’s just kind of annoying to reapply it every time.

    1. Yes, that is annoying. Delete either the EA app or Origin from your computer as every time you start the game via the app your DLC’s are lost when you installed them for Origin and when you start the game via Origin you lost the DLC’s that were installed for the app.
      For that reason I uninstalled the EA app. (preferred Origin anyway as it offers more possibilities)
      You can still download and use Origin

      1. I did everything plus i have the packs but it says that I need the sims 4 in order for it to work in cas. but I already have the sims 4

      2. My main platform is Steam and then it uses EA desktop to launch the game. I don’t have origin installed as of right now and the dlc unlocker recognizes the ea desktop app. I’m not launching the game trough origin. So I don’t understand what is going on. Anyway I appreciate that this is even a thing. I would just use a pirated copy but I like having the gallery so I will just deal with it I suppose.

  45. I tryed it with the Anadius Updater but now I can’t click on the play buttuns. The complete buttons are gone. Anyone had this issue yet?

  46. Hi, I have done everything. All the packs say owned but when I create a game it says when I make a person and search for the clothing of the packs “content not owned” is there a way to fix this?

    1. When you have the EA app and you open your game via Origin or vice versa, you must re-apply the EA DLC Updater.
      Type 5 first, then 1,2,14,q

  47. i had downloaded the game from steam and although I did all the steps as I saw in the video, it didn’t work. do I need to download from origin or the EA app?

  48. Hello, my problem is that the game is freezing after loading an old save or after I created a new sim; when I run Anadius Updater, it tells me that my version is more recently than 1.93.129.1030; it may be that the problem?

    1. version 1.93.129.1030 is the latest version, so your version cannot be more recent than that.
      After updates almost always some mods become outdated, so that may be a problem with old saves.

  49. Everything works fine, followed all the steps and it works perfectly. Thanks. Just wanted to ask whether this is safe when using steam? Because mines has to go through steam then it links to EA then only Sims 4 opens.

  50. “When you installed the (free) legal base game via the EA app and ran the unlocker, you must not start the game via Origin.
    Likewise when you installed via Origin and ran the Unlocker you must not start via the EA app.”

    How exactly do you launch legal game without EA App mine refuses to launch when i uninstall EA App?

  51. Hi! I’m sorry for bordering you, I have a problem:
    I switched from Origin to EA today as when I got into the game it crashed. Now I followed all the steps (5 to delete + 1, 2, 14 and q to reinstall) but it does the same thing again. I have repeated the process several times, the game keeps crashing. By the way, when it close for the first time after reinstallation of DLC, a message appears: “automatic closing” or something like that.
    Thank you so much for your work 🙂

    1. Hello again! Just came to say that I’ve fixed the game crash issue. I saw that in “Program Files x86” there was still the “Origin Games” folder with all the subfolders, so I saved all those subfolders (EP01, EP02, GP01…) and my Mods and Save files in a safe place and uninstalled the game in the Panel control, then I reinstalled it directly from EA and did the whole process again with the subfolders I had saved.
      By the way, I did not find the EA Games folder in “Program Files x86”, but in “Program Files”.

      xx

  52. HI,
    I have original base game and cracked DLC’s and I ‘ve used EA DLC unlocker V2 and before everything was working but today I had some update of the game and my DLC stopped working… Do you have idea how to fix it?

    1. Delete Origin from your computer, re-apply the Unlocker, first type 5 then 1,2,14 and q again.
      Every time you start your game via Origin you will lose the connection with the cracked DLC’s.
      Start the game via the EA app.

  53. ive redownloaded everything and redoing it all but my game keeps showing up with red and black on cas items and gray llamas on plots, i cant make pets or occult sims either, idk what to do ive done everything right i think
    it says i own them but i cant use them

    1. do you have nay mods installed? have you moved all the files correctly? it sounds like maybe the folders themselves haven;t been placed properly. in the DLC folder it should only have EP or SP or GP folders in there, and the dlc folder is within the installer folder

  54. Hi so i downloaded everything last week i think, everything was fine till today (i made a update yesterday) when i open the sims ,its says « buy it » on EVERY PACK. I tried to delete all packs and redownload its still not working. What should i do? Do i need to wait for the dlcs to be updated ? Or do i need to Redownload a new version?

  55. i installed the dlcs witj ea dlc unlocker, every tme i start the game i have to reinstall the dlcs via ea unlocker. why do I have to do this every time ?

  56. hi! so i downloaded everything, it says i have them, but that i have to “download to play” them
    i don’t know how to do that, can anyone help?

  57. Hi, so i have the legal base game from origin, before adding the pirate dlcs
    my sims phone was working and i could use it but now after adding the dlcs the phone wont open because i cant click it.. help¡

  58. Soooo when i first open the game it says that all dlcs are owned but when i try use them in cas or build mode it says i don’t own them… What should i do?

    1. Ive got the same issue, It says the DLC is owned in the game but when i try to look for the DLC in the game i cant find it.

    2. I have the same problem, I solve it by reapplying the EA DLC Unlocker, but after a while the same thing happens again… 🙁 I don’t know what invalidates the EA DLC Unlocker once applied.

      1. Once you installed the EA app, delete Origin from your computer as every time you, accidentally, start your game via Origin the DLC’s are gone.

        1. Hi Tarac, I downloaded all the dlcs as recommended and everything works great but when I want to play the sims offline it shows as not owning what to do to have all the packs offline?

        2. I did it, I don’t have origin on my computer, just the EA application, and the problem keeps happening, I still managed to fix it by reapplying the EA DLC Unlocker. Thanks in the same way Tarac.

  59. Excellent contribution, but I don’t know how to verify if I succeeded.

    I installed the base game by EA and then I ran the unlocker and followed the steps, I entered the game and there are no errors, I see all the packs purchased, but I do not know if I really have it active. I tested if the dogs and cats pack works when creating a sim and it doesn’t let me create a pet, could it be that I’m missing a step?

  60. This does not work, i have the base game and followed the pack instructions, but when i try to run the game it gives me the offline/online options like in the cracked game, and neither work

  61. Super Tutorial, fast, simple and effective, I recommend.


    It would have been better to add the comment function at the beginning of the but that’s okay,

    1. Yes, not much difference apart from the fact that when you used Origin in the past and you now use the EA app, you must re-download and re-run the EA DLC Unlocker.
      First type 5 to uninstall the Origin based Unlocker, then type 1,2,14, q again.

  62. I downloaded the packs while using Origin. I switched over from Origin to EA App (after they announced they’ll be requiring a switch from Origin to EA App), and the packs did not appear when I opened the game under EA App. How do I fix this?

  63. I successfully downloaded these packs with the Origin platform. I switched over from Origin to EA App (after they posted they’ll be switching to EA App and getting rid of Origin). When I opened the game under EA App, the packs no longer worked. How do I fix the packs, so they appear in-game?

    1. When you switch from Origin to the EA app you must re-apply the EA DLC Unlocker.
      First type 5 to uninstall the Origin based unlocker, then type 1,2,14 and q again

  64. Hi!!! I´ve done every as the instructions guided. Even added all of the folders into the windows security exclusions system, but when I opened the game it says ´´unable to start´´ ´´initialization error at start up´´. and i dont know what else to do.

  65. Just in case anyone misses this step. When it says to type 14 for Sims 4, it shows up under 15 for me. and 14 as Sims 3. Idk if its different for anyone else but make sure you read that just in case.

  66. i’ve literally done everything right and it says i own everything but when i go into CAS the stuff from the packs are all black and red with question marks and when i go onto worlds all the plots have that grey llama with wings thing?(ive removed all mods so its not that)

  67. Okay, now it’s giving me problems with my old savefile. It’s telling me that I shouldn’t play it because “I don’t have the required DLCs” (yes, it’s from a hacked game, more specifically FitGirl’s repack) and it’s gonna give me problems to the savefile. I don’t know what to do.

  68. I have both the EA and Origin launcher. 1) instead of recognizing the Origin launcher it recognized the EA one. 2) The hack worked on the EA version of TS4. When I open the game through Origin it shows all my characters but no DLCs. When I open through EA it shows all DLCs but no savefiles (I think), also, all the options are bugged and are literally over the TS4 logo.
    I don’t know what to do.

  69. Hi!! So, i downloaded the packs through an .iso format and mounted them and then copied the folder to the sims 4 installation folder. but when i try run ts4 as an administrator, the packs aren’t there even though i followed all the steps?

  70. Hi Tarac.
    I already completed download the Base Game. I read the part if we want to move the installed folder to another drive we have to do this.

    1.Log in on Origin
    2.Go to My Game Library
    3.Right-click on the picture of the Sims 4
    4.Select Move Game
    5.Browse to the drive you want your game to be moved to
    (optional: Make a new folder, such as My Sims Games)
    6.Select the folder

    I download the Base Game from Steam. When I opened Origin app and right-clicked the Sims 4 picture, there was NO Move Game.

    So how can I solve this part?.

  71. J’ai eu beau lancer ea unlock plusieurs fois, ça me met toujours que je les ai pas pourtant ils sont biens là je ne sais pas quoi faire…

  72. Can someone confirm if we have to do the EA DLC unlocker process everytime we need to play the game with all the DLC’s working .
    Or
    Am I the onlyone that have to do this ?
    Also when I start via the X64 the game loads but we do not have the start new game option in the game, it shows something about free trial

    1. this has happened to me since I changed to the EA app. Every time I play offline, the dlc unlocker stops working and I only have the packs I actually bought, so I have to redownload it when I go back online.

      help us

        1. Hi Tarac, I downloaded all the dlcs as recommended and everything works great but when I want to play the sims offline it shows as not owning what to do to have all the packs offline?

  73. Hello author, will the use of cracking device cause the banning of the account? Can’t use the simulator often?

  74. hey, I did everything like you said, it’s working but in the cas or in construction almost all dlc are red and white or with a question mark..
    I’ll try to uninstall and install

  75. i have EA app and so i downloaded the dlc’s, put them in the main folder (through comments i found the link which shows the main folder), but the dlc’s still didn’t show up. what’s the problem then? should i delete EA and download steam?

    1. you have to apply the EA DLC Unlocker v2 (from step 1) but I found that it’s required everytime I open the game

  76. Yeah this has totally not worked for me. My game is live and connected but when I try to play an existing save, it says it requires all the packs. Hovering over them it says “Not owned” but when you click on that pack, it says “You already own this pack”. What do??

  77. I installed as explained above. And in the game it says I have them all, but still need to download everything. How do I solve this?

    1. I downloaded the dlc and they’re showing up in my game but in CAS a lot of my items that came from the dlc are showing up as red and white questions marks, how can I fix this??

      1. I did all the steps and now I have the dlc but it asks me to install them, how do I do that? somebody help me please?

    2. Me too ?? I dont know how to fix this. Its saying « owned » but i dont have it in my worlds and everything, did you find a solution?

  78. but what if i installed the game on steam and dont have it neither on ea app or origin what am i supposed to do

    1. okay idk what im doing at all but i reinstalled sims 4 on origin the dlc unlocker didnt show any errors it said everything is installed but whenever i launch the game i dont have any of the packs at all idk what im missing or are there steps thar arent written in this page that im magically supposed to know

  79. Not sure what’s been causing “NEW_FREE_TRIAL_NOT_TRANSLATED” problem.

    1) The game is via Steam, installed on the steamapps paste. There’s nothing on the Origin paste, but when launched the game via steam it opens via origin

    2) Used the Anadis Updater. All packs and DLC’s are working just fine

    3) Language strings file already used, changed language few times but the problem persists

    Not sure what’s been causing this…

    1. that was my problem, but I followed Lamp’s tutorial video and used Tarac’s dlc links instead, I’ve only downloaded one so far but it’s worked!

  80. Hello Tarac, thank you for the unlocker, instructions and downloads.

    Would it be possible to make the sources of version.dll available to ensure that it does not contain malicious code ?

    1. Iinstalled the ea unlocker and it says that i own the packs but it tell me that i need to download them to use it. I dont understand what to do can someone help me please?

      1. Make sure that the folders for the expansions, such as EP01 or SP35 are in the main directory of your installation folder of your legal game

        1. how do I make sure that the expansions are in the main directory of the installation folder Im using EA desktop btw

        2. Hi Tarac, I downloaded all the dlcs as recommended and everything works great but when I want to play the sims offline it shows as not owning what to do to have all the packs offline?

      2. J’ai un soucis avec les pack. ça me marque que je possède les packs mais que je dois les télécharger pour les utiliser. Pouvez vous m’aidez pour ce problème?

  81. I downloaded everything correctly and I also followed the videos but it still says pack not owned and the packs aren’t working aswell. What do I do?

    1. Did you install your legal game via Origin or via the EA app ? (both have different settings in the Unlocker, Origin detected or Desktop detected))
      Run the EA DLC Unlocker, right-click on setup and run as Admin.
      Type 5 to delete previous installation of the Unlocker.
      Then type 1,2,14 and q
      Start your legal game again.

      1. Downloaded the game via steam, when I open the game it goes directly to Origin. Used the Anadius Updater for the DLC’s and all of them are working (the game too). The problem seems to be specific in the menu. This is what my menu looks like -> https://gofile.io/d/de5cZ6

        Because I downloaded the game via steam my C:\Program Files (x86)\Origin Games is empty, my leal game paste is on steamapps. Maybe there’s something with it?

      2. i installed my game via origin and have done this 4 times and i still have this issue any help would be appreciated

    1. Download and run the Language-strings.
      extract with Winrar and copy all corresponding folders to your installation folder such as Program Files\The Sims 4

      There is no start button, you start the game from your installation folder/Game/Bin/TS4_x64 or Game/Bin_LE/TS4

  82. Bonsoir

    ca me met jeux possédé mais quand je joue presque tout les vêtements et objets sont avec des croix et les personnage avec des point d’interrogation ou transparent

    pouvez vous m’aider svp

  83. Hi, I was able to get the DLC in my game, I did all the right steps and everything and now it says I own all the DLC. But when I got into CAS, half of my stuff is marked with red and white question marks and I also can’t see the thumb nails or whatever of a lot of my stuff. This isn’t CC stuff because I just got the game and haven’t dowloaded any yet so I think the problem might be with the DLC. Is there any way for me to fix this???

  84. Bonjour.Je suis sur Mac et j’ai tout bien installé mais je ne sais pas comment faire et où je dois écrire les numéros 2, 14 et q… Sur Windows cela me semble clair mais sur Mac je ne sais pas comment je dois le faire. J’ai essayé d’ouvrir le fichier setup avec la console du Mac mais je ne peux pas écrire dessus. Que dois-je faire?

    1. Hello. I’m on Mac and I have everything installed fine but I don’t know how and where I should write the numbers 2, 14 and q… On Windows it seems clear to me but on Mac I don’t know how I gotta do it. I tried to open the setup file with the console of the Mac but I can’t write to it. What should I do?

    1. When the torrent download is finished you will see an .iso file, mount that iso for the packs and copy them to the installation folder of your |(legal) The Sims 4

      1. They stay as torrent files for me, could I be doing something wrong? Could it be that they don’t support Windows 11?

  85. hello, i’m basically new in sims and so i downloaded the legal free game through EA and want to download those dlc’s from here. in which folders do i put the dlc’s? because your instructions are saying how to do it in steam or origin, but i have EA and i’m lost…or do i have to download something more?

      1. okay, so i did this and it didn’t show up in the game.
        i thought maybe there’s the problem with the folder? it’s in program files, not in program files 86x, does that make difference?

          1. i did it, it showed me the location and then inserted the dlc in there. and it still didn’t show up. i thought of deleting EA game and downloading from steam but i don’t know if it will work any better. or do i need to download the unlocker or anadius?

    1. Helloo so I did everything but when i go to the packs it says I already own it but when playing/dressing up etc the packs does not seem to load.

  86. hi, just wanna ask, I did everything and run the game through bin folder and it says I already own the packs but it says “download to use” yet I don’t find any download button in game, and when I opened the CAS it says I don’t own the pack, how do I solve this?

      1. UPDATES!

        the “download to use” problem finally solved for me, and for anyone having the same “download to use” problem although you have done everything right, you have to check on the pack folders in your legal game, in my case turns out I have another folder inside the pack folder (e.g. EP01>EP01>contents)
        make sure they’re not under another folder (e.g. : legal game folder>EP01>contents)

  87. Now that the base game is free and we can have it legit, if the base game is original via EA Desktop and we add the DLCs via the Updater, will we be able to use the Gallery in game?

  88. Is anyone else having the issue of having to reinstall the packs every time they open their game ever since they switched to the EA app?

    1. Same! I had to reinstall the unlocker today to run the game. I didn’t have any issues yesterday – I can just open/close the game with no issue.

  89. I don’t know why but I open g_The Sims 4. .I have 87 DLCs But no idea why I have sims 3 DLCs. I downloaded again and installed but same result

  90. Hi! I moved the DLCs from my cracked game to my legal game as mentioned above, played a few hours and went to bed. All worked perfectly. Woke up today and it’s not working anymore. Says none of the DLCs are owned anymore when I load up. Is there any reason it would work initially but break? Thanks!

    1. No, it should be working fine.

      Re-apply the EA DLC Unlocker
      Run it, type 5 to uninstall the old installation
      Then type 1,2,14 and q again

      1. Hi,

        this happened to me, too. When I try to re-install DLC Unlocker, EA app crashes and I get a fatal error in DLC Unlocker. So I managed to (5) uninstall DLC Unlocker but when I type (1), first EA app crashes, then I receive the message “Fatal error: Permission error. Could not install the unlocker”. I ran it as administrator. It all worked fine yesterday.

        1. Hi again, sorry I just realised that leaving EA app open whilst re-installing DLC Unlocker is incorrect – it needs to be shut off. Works fine now. Thanks!

  91. Hi there. I’ve successfully installed the packs via the torrent method into the folder. However, after I run through the DLC Unloader and try to boot up the game. it says: “EA DLC Unlocker Error. Main config file not found, the Unlocker won’t work. Run the setup script and (re)install the Unlocker!”

    I’ve tried having the EA Desktop App open (both regularly and run as admin) while reinstalling, tried moving the entire Unlocker folder into the Sims 4 folder ; nothing works. Thx

    1. I’ve combed through again, and unless it saying “DLC Unlocker installed!” instead of “DLL added” after pressing 1 in the setup is an indication of an error, I still am unsure of what is going on.

      1. UPDATE: I got it working by installing it manually! Thank you so much for supporting us all by running this site! 🙂

        1. Hey! Sorry for bothering, the same thing is happening to me but i can’t see to make it work. How did you do it? I really could use some help-

  92. I have downloaded the free base game from the ea app and updated via the anadius updater. When I try to launch my game it asks for the remid. It won’t let me go online otherwise. I have tried the EA unlocker as well. I really need some help on this! Thank you

  93. do i have to install dlc unlocker although i alrd have all cracked dlc from my previous cracked base game? now i alr downloaded the legal one

    1. i literally have no idea what im doing i followed the video and i already have the base game. but when i open sims it says i have to ‘download to use’ the packs. someone else already asked this and u said this
      1. Run the Anadius Updater, browse to your legal folder to include all EP, FP, GP and SP’s in your legal file folder. When prompted about your legal game, click Yes
      2. Run the EA DLC Unlocker as an Administrator. Type 5 to uninstall previous settings, then type 1, 2, 14, q

      i have no idea what that means. where do i find the anadius updater? i just followed the video.

      ive literally tried so many things also where is the installation folder? I HAVE NO IDEA WHAT IM DOING LMAO

      1. 1-first u run the unloker set up and now that u have installed it,after that when u run the game u notice that u own all the DLCS that is the unlocker doing it`s job but u still dont have them in the game so u have to do step 2.
        2-u take the EP GP SP files from your cracked game file(installation file) and paste them in your legal game file(installation file)

        **the installation file is the file called (the sims 4) for both of the games so their should be 2 of them for each.
        its real easy

    2. When you switched to the EA app, yes, you must re-download the unlocker.
      Run it as an admin, type 5 to uninstall the previous installtion, then type 1,2,14,q again.

  94. Hii I downloaded the DLC with the updater and Now i am not sure of how to use the Unlocker with the EA app. since there is no longer Origin. Please May you Kindly Assist me

    1. Re-download the EA DLC Unlocker
      Run it as an Administrator
      Type 5 to uninstall the Origin installation of the Unlocker
      Type 1,2,14 and q for the EA app installation of the Unlocker

      1. i literally have no absolute idea of what i did. I truly don’t know if it is because english it’s not my mother tongue or i did not understand why do i need to install again the unlocker.
        so here are my questions:

        i entered the game and it said that i have to buy the packs, but yesterday i did all of the procedure, i played and it was running just fine. what do i have to do in that case? re download the unlocker and updater?

        But i checked the updater in case it migth have idk just deleted itself, and noup the packs did were not in the menu, so whats next?

        i know it’s a lot of text and i might be repetitive, but i truly hope you do understand what i’m trying to say, thank you tarac.

    1. If you switched from Origin to the EA app you must re-download the EA DLC Unlocker.
      Then run the |Unlocker as an Admin, type 5 to uninstall the old installation. Then type 1,2,14 and q again.

      1. Hi Tarac,

        Thanks for everything you do.
        Just letting yuo know that you made a mistake/typo, Sims 4 is 14 not 15.
        I followed all the steps exactly, unlocker etc. Worked perfectly. However after closing my game and opening it again a few hours later, all the DLC’s were showing as unowned. I read through the comments and it turns out if EA app is open (even running in the background in Windows try bottom right) you have to reinstall and rerun the unlocker every time to play the game. I exited and redid the whole unlocker part and it works now. May I suggest adding this to your instructions, it may save you getting so many confused comments. Thanks again.

      2. Bonjour, comment doit-je faire pour installer EA DLC Unlocker ? Car je n’y arrive pas et je peut pas l’extraire

          1. Oui, mais le problème c’est vous le Unlocker est en dossier alors que moi il est en fichier. Ce qui fait que moi je ne peut pas l’extraire

          2. Même si je le déplace sur le bureau je ne peut pas car c’est un fichier qui est bien au nom de EA DLC Unlocker mais ce n’est pas un dossier ce qui fait que je ne peut pas l’extraire :/

  95. I have followed the steps then added dlc into my legal game with a torrent file, but the game does not open. It says that i need to update it with origin. EA play does not have any update button. And the anadius updater says Your game version (1.91.186.1030) doesn’t match the version available in the Updater (1.92.145.1030). Make sure your legit game is up to date.
    Please help.

      1. Hello It seems liked it worked but i’m having some trouble when i opened the game they were all in the my packs section but when i went to look it said ”download to use” i tried all the options given to try to fix the problem i opened the game and i didnt get the option to update the config file i did open it via the legal file it didnt give me the option so i thought there might be something else wrong maybe i did place the dlc files in the wrong place but i dont know where there suppose to be placed maybe that’s not it i’m not sure i re tried the method given to fix the problem but opening the game it still said ”download to use” so maybe me explaining this might help and maybe you might know what i did wrong or whats wrong thank you for your time

        1. When you switch from Origin to the EA app you must re-download the EA DLC Unlocker.
          Run it as an Admin, type 5 to delete the old installation, then type 1,2,14 and q again.

  96. I followed the procedure, the packages are in my possession but not downloaded, I don’t know how to fix it…

    1. 1. Run the Anadius Updater, browse to your legal folder to include all EP, FP, GP and SP’s in your legal file folder. When prompted about your legal game, click Yes
      2. Run the EA DLC Unlocker as an Administrator. Type 5 to uninstall previous settings, then type 1, 2, 14, q

  97. Thank you for all you do! I have been trying to install the DLCs using the DLC unlocker and it has been saying Installing for 2 hours. is this normal?

      1. i opened the legal base game and all the dlc appeared, the problem is that i don’t have acces to the menu interface I can neither start a new game nor continue anything I’m like stuck in the home interface. And when i restarded the dlc unlocker all the EP’s and GP’s were gone. i have a windows

  98. This worked for me after a lot of fidgeting. I had to prevent Windows Defender from blocking the DLC unlocker though. However, I’ve got a couple of questions:

    1. Can I post my creations on the gallery if they include content from packs, or do I risk getting caught?
    2. What are the probabilities of this suddenly not working anymore eventually?
    3. Where can I find my userID number? (In anadius.cfg, I used to change my username and userid. I would like to know where you (anadius) found your userid? I would like to find my real account’s ID.)

  99. je ne comprnd rien . jai telecharger les sims legal avec steam une fois le jeu installer j ai suivis les instruction et mis tous les ep,gp,fp,sp dans le dossier dinstallation de mon jeu legal .une fois dans mon jeu je ne possede rien .
    j ai verifier les dlc je les retrouve tous

    NAM81=The Sims™ 4 Little Campers Kit

    le nam81 doit etre loup garou et moi j ai little camper
    je ne comprend plus rien pouvez vous maider svp

  100. Goodnight! I’m having a problem with the ”get to work” expansion, the other expansions were downloaded without problem, but this one tells me “CRITICAL ERROR:Can’t move files to your game folder.
    If you don’t have administrator rights – copy your game somewhere else, for example:
    “D: Games\The Sims 4”
    What can I do?

  101. Now that the base game is free, I wanted to try this method. I tried with Steam. The only issue I ran in was while installing the dlcs. At the end, a certain file could not get copied (in gamepack 7 I believe?). There were instructions of how to fix it and, following it, I copied files from the updater’s folder to my game folder. Then, I tried finishing the installation and it worked. It was written to read readme to know how to play with a legit game and cracked DLC, and it was written to use the .exe file in the Game_cracked folder. But when I tried to open the game, I got asked if I wanted to play offline or online, and if I clicked online, I got the remid cookie thing that is used for the cracked base game method… I expected the game to just start while I’d be connected to my Origin/Steam account. I tried the normal .exe file but it did the same thing, so just in case, I tried to launch the game offline, and I was logged in as anadius, not into my account.

    I don’t understand how to make this work.

    1. Alright, I managed to fix it eventually. I don’t know why it didn’t work at first cause I followed the instructions but whatever. What I did:

      1. Repaired my game in Origin (which opened Steam).
      2. Left Origin and steam open and ran the DLC unlocker.
      3. Opened the game with the original .exe file. My username was now the right one.
      4. Checked online options on in Options.
      5. The gallery now works for me.

  102. Почему при переходе на новую платформу EA не запускается игра?

      1. I did this but the EA application opened and an error “Failed to start the game An error occurred that caused a failure to start. Please try again later.” Do you know how to solve it?

        1. Most probably a problem with the language. Say you downloaded the base game in English and you want to play in Spanish
          Re-download the free game again and select the language you want to play in

      2. Do you think you can make a video explaining the download process with the new EA app and including the part of the folder? I can’t find the Installation folder or the Bin in general and my game keeps saying that I need to download the packs

  103. Ok for anyone that has “not owned” –
    You need to have the EA client open while you use the unlocker
    Hopefully, the admins add that to the tutorial since its not there and that’s an important step

    Also, add that if you see “welcome anadius!” or something like that – you’ve fucked up when you added the DLC to your folder and put in the game
    Fix it by repairing with EA Client

    1. What do you mean with EA client ? EA app or Origin or something else ?
      When you see “welcome Anadius” you are starting a cracked game and not the legal version.

      1. question!! i have the legal game with cracked dlcs but i lost access to the gallery somehow. do you know how i can get it back?

  104. I installed the cracked base game with all the dlc using the Anadius updater. When the free base game is realesed, do i have to unistall the cracked game to install the legal one? if yes, how?

  105. Tarac (Anadius), I want to tell you that: Do you have the limited-offer Vibing Streamer Gear Digital Content, which is content that adds video-game-themed and teen-oriented furniture into The Sims 4 (Specifically an extension to High Schools Years Expansion Pack) available for purchase back in early September 2022? If you do, can you please bring it to Anadius Updater and the Pack System so that everyone, including me, can use it without having to lose it beyond its limited time period? You have not offered us such Content yet, but you may have it.

  106. Hi, I have installed my SIMS 4 on drive D using copy paste initially few years ago,and now i tried running the EA DLC Unlocker V2 (setup.bat) , i am seeing this error in the command prompt, can you guide me on how can it detect the game in drive D? I downloaded the open the sims 4 folder.bat and it was able to detect my game at drive D just fine. I am having trouble with EA DLC Unlocker V2 not being able to detect the path and i cant change it either.

  107. Hi, If I want to keep everything I already have in the Gallery from my pirated base game, can I keep the same account I already used to go online? is it possible?

    1. Yes, you can use the same account as you used with the Remid cookie.
      However, as the base game will be free, the Sims 4 demo will end to exist

  108. Since EA is planning to retire Origin, what are the future plans for the updater? Are you planning to make a version for the EA app?

    1. It will make things much easier.
      As you can get the base game for free, I presume that we all use that opportunity (when you have no legal base game as yet).
      That implicates that Origin, or the EA app, updates your game automatically to the latest version (= folders: __Install, Data, Delta, Game, Support).
      Only when new DLC’s are released, you manually have to download the new folders, such as f.e. EP13, GP13, SP36 …….
      Of course, we shall provide these folders on our website.

      Consequently, we all become legal members and still can add pirated DLC’s to our legal game, so this page does not have to change.

      1. So if I’m understanding correctly, at the end of the year we will all have to redownload the base game from the EA app, but the process of adding packs to our copy will not change from how it was with Origin?

        1. When you already have a legal base game there is no need to re-download it.
          And yes, adding DLC’s remains the same as it was. The only thing you have to re-download / re-install is the DLC Unlocker when you switch from Origin to the EA App.

  109. I followed all the steps, even the ones from the video but when I open the game (I have a legit game btw) the packs still appear as unowned, so idk if they are supposed to appear like that or if I have to do something else OR if I did something wrong lol

    1. Can you see the folders for the packs in the installation folder of your legal game (where you also see folders named __Install, Data, Delta Game) ?
      Yes: Re-apply the EA DLC Unlocker
      No: Copy the folders for the packs from where you put these to the installation folder of your legal game and re-apply the EA DLC Unlocker.

      1. Yes, I do have all of that in the legal game folder, I have tried the EA DLC Unlocker too but yeah, everything looks like it is correct but for some reason, they still appear as unowned.

    1. Yes, this problem was also reported by Electronic Arts.
      Make sure that your game version is 1.91.205.1020 (use Origin to update your legal game)
      Meanwhile, you can try to use Save as … instead of Save

  110. So I’m curious. I did everything in Step one – Origin says I don’t own all the DLC however when I load in the game it says I own the DLC but when I go into CAS nothing from DLCs show up (when I go to “sort by pack” it’s showing I don’t own anything). I’m curious if I need to do step 3 and download each pack individually.

    1. Origin does not know what cracked DLC’s you have.
      Make sure that the EP, FP, GP and SP folders are in the installation folder of your legal game, probably C:\Program Files (x86)\Origin Games\The Sims 4

      1. Having the same problem, and the EP, FP, GP, & SP folders aren’t in the installation folder for my legal game. I’m not sure what to do about it.

        1. Copy these expansion folders from where ever you placed them to your installation folder for your legal game and run the DLC Unlocker.

  111. Hey just want to let you know that I don’t think the unlocker is working anymore :’) it used to work for me and then out of nowhere, all the dlc says unowned. I had to uninstall my game twice just to see if I did something wrong and it still says unowned. am I possibly get caught by origin/ea? lmao

    1. Download the latest Unlocker
      Type 5 to uninstall the Unlocker (first time you try you will get an error message, ignore and try again)
      Then type 1, 2, 15, q

  112. hello, i have a problem with the ea unlocker.
    i followed all the steps but when i open the game i don’t have the “updated the config” message.
    i have no mods installed and cleared the cache so idk how to do.

  113. anyone know why i cant extract the files? I’ve been extracting cc, so i do know how to do it. it just doesn’t give me the option.

  114. Im having an issue, where under my packs it says I own all the DLC’s but when I try to make a new character none of the DLC’s work? I restarted the computer and re did all previous steps. Please help 🙂

  115. All I can say is THANK YOU SO MUCH! I followed your guide for downloading only the DLC’s as I already own the base game legally. Everything was so EASY and your guides and instructions are helpful. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

  116. Please help! I followed ALL the instructions but none of the DLCs are working. When I open the game I can see that I have all the packs, some of them say “In possession” and others say “Download to play” however, none of them work when playing. Icons and information for objects, lots, etc. do not load The icons don’t appear, only the image of a llama appears, the clothes do not download and appear in red and white with a question mark. None works, I’ve tried everything. I use Origin
    (Sorry for bad english)

  117. Hey so. On my legal game I have all the DLCs on it but every time I load into a save it says that the game couldn’t load all of the packs and that I should relaunch the game. Could you help with that?

    1. Also when I select an aspiration not all of the sub categories are there (ex. the Knowledge aspiration) and some of the also have a weird blue option (ex. the Knowledge aspiration)

  118. Hey, I just downloaded the game with all DLCs but when I enter the game all of the option buttons on the main page are stuck at the top. Is this a glitch? (Accidently posted this on the mac version)

  119. Helpp. Before when i downloaded dlc’s to my already owned sims 4 base game I didn’t need to have origin downloaded and it worked perfectly fine. and I remember a youtuber who did a tutorial on how to download your dlc’s said to delete origin so that they don’t detect you’re using a cracked game or something like that. but now in your instructions it says I need origin. so do I need to have origin installed or not?

    1. Once you have installed the legal base game you only need to be online to access the Gallery
      But even when you are online Origin/Electronic Arts cannot detect pirated DLC’s. At present, they only check for a valid key of the base game.
      From October 18th the base game can be downloaded for free via Origin anyway.

  120. THANK YOU SO MUCH! I had troubles at first because i didn’t realize i had to copy the DLC files from delta into my sims 4 file but after I figured it out i was so happy. Seriously thank you 🙂

  121. Thanks so much! I have everything “owned” now but all of the worlds are still locked when I go to start a new game, any advice?

    1. Redo step 1 incl. the download of the EA DLC Unlocker and make sure that the packs (such as EP, GP, SP and FP) are in the main folder of your The Sims 4 installation

    1. Redo step 1 incl. the download of the EA DLC Unlocker and make sure that the packs (such as EP, GP, SP and FP) are in the main folder of your The Sims 4 installation

  122. I’m not able to open the setup.bat file. There is no option to “Run as administrator”. The game was completely normal with all the dlcs until I downloaded the last kit from Steam, the remaining DLCS do not appear in the game.

          1. yo im having the same problem but I AM on mac how do I run the .bat? I haven’t updated my packs in a sec and now all the instructions on this site are different lol

  123. After i downloaded all DLCs, my sims reset when asked to eat, do their homework, study for exams, or read a book. Is this because of the DLC or is the bug unrelated?

  124. Hey, the EA DLC Unlocker doesn’t seem to have EA game Titanfall 2 – which currently has about $54 of DLC on Steam. Any idea how I could do this same trick but with that game?

  125. Hey tarac , can you help me ? i did everything you said but the GP and SP doesnt work !!! (clothes) , i have no mod , repaired the gamed etc…. but it simply doesnt work ! the EP are fine but not the rest. sad !

    1. What download did you use ?
      As there are several possibilities for downloading:
      1. All DLC’s in 1 download (iso format)
      2. All EP’s (selectable in winrar format)
      3. All GP’s (selectable) in winrar format
      4. All SP’s (selectable) in winrar format
      5. Single downloads per DLC in iso format

  126. To people who have the broken items in CAS (red and with stuff with question mark) , it is the SP and GP that are broken , all the EP are working fine for me. so i think it is a problem with the GPs and SPs. I have no mods in my sims so it cant be the mods. idk why the SP and Gps arent working though

    1. why does anadius say theres 81 dlcs but the downloader has 56 , some were missing such as the university one and parenthood

      1. The EA DLC Unlocker for the Sims 4 also includes Sims 3 items and bonuses for pre-ordering, such as f.e. Gnome on the go and some High School items.
        The total score at present is even 84 required to enlist all 57 DLC’s + 27 extras
        University (NAM38) and Parenthood (NAM 9) are not missing.

  127. For some reason, every time I play Sims 4 with all of the dlcs, it’s always logged into anadius instead of my own account, what happened here and how do I fix it?

    1. When you installed the legit game and copied the EP,GP,FP, SP folders from your cracked game to your legit game, you can delete the complete cracked folder of the Sims 4.
      Run the EA DLC Unlocker to include these cracked folders in your legal game

  128. Hi, I followed the instructions but when I open the game it shows an error pop up that says:

    “No game configs found, the Unlocker won’t unlock any DLCs.

    Run the setup script and add some game configs!”

    after that I have tried running the sript and pressing 2 and 15, but nothing seems to work! 🙁 it shows the error everytime! is there a way to fix this?

  129. hello, do i need to copy the soundtrack from the cracked game as well to put in my legit base game? or just the ep, fp, sp and fp?

  130. do all my save in my crack sims 4 will be gone if i decided to install the legal one cuz i rn im playing with the cracked sims 4 and i wanna buy the legal base game

    1. No, all your saves will still be there when you buy the legal game.
      To be absolutely sure, make a backup copy of the folders Saves and Tray from the file C:\Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 4

      1. do i have to create new account cuz i dont have legit origin acc i only have dummy account for my cracked sims 4, or i can just use the dummy one to buy legal game?

        1. and i want to ask, do i have to delete the cracked game first and then install the legal game or install the legal game first and delete the cracked base game?

  131. I did have a dummy account connected but all a sudden the account changed to anadius and now nothing connects. I open the game and don’t even get the option to go online. Was able to get things from the gallery just fine. Seems like everyone is having this problem but were folks also booted from their dummy origin accounts and changed to anadius? also, is this just for players with a crack or legal copies too?

    1. edit: ok, i figured it out. use the “Video on how you can add pirated dlc’s to your legal game”. Sadly if the sims 4 isn’t connected to a dummy account you might have to use your main, just don’t upload anything. Should be fine if you just download stuff. but yeah, that’s the only way it can work for now. great work EA. f u.

      1. hey aanon2426, looks like you got this thing to run very recently? Are you on windows or mac? I’d like to add some cracked dlc’s to my LEGAL sims 4 origin copy on mac m1. I’d appreciate if you let me know if everything worked out for you.

        Regards,
        Esco

  132. I need to download the 1.90 ver. no origin fix but after i log into my google i get a “this site can’t be reached” error

  133. I used the updater on my official origin game and followed all the steps. It worked but when I go to game-cracked and run it, instead of being logged into my gallery as usual I’m logged in as Anadius and can’t connect to the gallery at all/

  134. I dont know what I am doing wrong, There is nothing in the origin games after, I complete this step. STEP 1
    Download a small file EA DLC Unlocker v2.
    Extract with Winrar
    Right-click on Setup and run as Administrator
    As this is a small .bat file you can’t use the mouse, so type 1 after Choose option Number
    When that is done, type 2
    Type 14 for the Sims 4
    Type Q to exit

      1. Hi,
        I have followed all these instructions and I can see all the dlcs in my legal sims folder but when I launch the game it says dlcs not owned! What am I missing??

        1. 1. Download this small file
          2. Double-click on the downloaded file and it will open the folder of your legal game
          3. Add the requested EP’s, FP, GP’s and SP’s to that folder.
          4. Now perform step 1 from this page
          5. Start your game from that legal folder via the subfolders Game -> Bin and click on TS4_x64

    1. Update I got it to work. I found out, I did own a registered copy. Follow the steps and it works really well.

    2. I noticed that the Sims 4 is actually 15 rather than 14. So rather than “type 14 for the Sims 4”, type 15, or just look at the list above and see at what number the Sims 4 is located. Hope this helps.

  135. I have tried multiple times to make the pack system work. I used to use the selective download and may have to go back to that I guess. I have updated and repaired my game through Origin. I have unintalled the DLC unlocker and made sure I had the most recent version. I have removed the folders through the application and reinstalled them as instructed above. No matter what I do, the pirated DLCs will not show as owned – they continue to show as unowned. All the DLC folder are in the right installation folder (I downloaded the linked file to check). They are all listed in the config file. It is using Origin, not EA Desktop. I just don’t know what else to troubleshoot other than completely starting over and reinstalling everything.

  136. This is insane! i’ve just tried it. First I wanted to manully add the DLCs using the torrent but I didnt quite understand how it worked. I got the right folder but nothing appeared ingame. I used the DLC unlocker and it worked perfectly. However.. is there a way how I can choose which DLCs I want? I dont want/need all of them.

      1. I need help…
        it keeps telling me ”download to use”
        the only issue I seem to see is that when I typed 1 for the Install EA DLC
        I don’t see ”Origin detected.”
        It says I’m Administrator so I’m not sure what I should do

        1. I can’t find the DCL’s and I’ve tried deleting my present EA DLC Unlocker and downloading the latest EA DLC Unlocker from Step 1 but it always tells me I have to ”download to use”.

    1. Yes, in the game folder you can delete the packs you don’t want. you need to remove the folders from the expansions. for example GP12 is the game pack 12 (Sims 4 werewolves)

  137. hello im havin an issue with starting game when i try to start the game and i get to page to select world it goes completly plain white screen with no wolrds to select and i realized when i did unlocker setup as admin it didnt write DLL added so maybe thats an issue i downloaded dlcs with torrent

  138. I am horrified of getting my Origin account banned or just getting in trouble LMAOO, what are some precautions ya’ll take to avoid this?

      1. Thank you for your reply. Problem is I can’t download it.
        I have a legit Sims 4 installation, do I need the updater to install DLCs?

        Thanks

  139. I was soooo apprehensive about this and convinced that it wouldn’t work or that I’d mess something up, but no! It worked like a charm. I’m flabbergasted that I can have access to origin and the library and play the Sims 4 online. You’re a genius Anadius, many thanks! My jaw is literally on the floor.

    I’ll kinda miss looking at your user name when I open up the game – now that I have my own 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣

  140. Hi, so I installed everything correctly and I definitely have all the DLC installed but it says all my DLC is unowned. I’ve tried countless times with the EA DLC Unlocker V2 by uninstalling it, reinstalling it, pressing 15 for Sims 4 and nothing changes. I’ve tried repairing the game via Origin and still nothing happened. Anything I should do/try?

    1. So i installed everything and when i logged into sims 4 it says “download to use” according to this i have put the dlc files in the wrong place so where do i put it? I currently just have it on my desktop.Please help.

      1. Download this small file.
        Run it (DoubleClick) and it will open the installation folder of your legal The Sims 4
        Downloaded and extracted (or mounted) EP’s, FP’s, GP’s and SP’s must be placed in that folder.

    1. I also have the same problem and im not sure what to do about it,if somebody does know a way to fix this please do tell us!

  141. hi! i’m a pc user and i have problems with high school years, werewolves and wedding stories. basically i can’t open the world of the dlcs, when i try to go on Moonwood Mill, Tartosa or Copperdale, i just end up having a white screen. i used to have the same issue with komorebi but it has been fixed up all alone, i don’t understand lol
    i hope one of you will be able to help me, it’s been so long since i have this issue
    thank you!

    1. First of all download the latest EA DLC unlocker.
      Second: Run the Anadius Updater and click Yes when prompted about your legal game.
      Still problems ? Check your mods, see this page

  142. Thank you! I had ups and downs but thats just because im a bad computer tech haha
    It works great and i can finally play more dlcs with my base game 🙂

  143. hi, it work very very well i have all the items and pack but i dont know why i can’t play what i mean is that i can create sims and house but i cant play with them after which is so sad please tell me if there’s something to do it say that there’s a error of chargement and that there’s a code error or something it tell me to close the game and oppen it back but it dont work

  144. hi i did all the steps but when i open the game there’s duplicate worlds in the residential worlds like two copperdales, tartosa with a copy of the npcs and all. everything else is working fine just copied worlds for DLCs that have worlds. im on windows and used the iso with ea unlocker. thank you

  145. Hello, I have a problem and I can’t find a way to fix it.

    I just went through the whole DLC download process but it only works offline. if anyone knows how to fix this please help me!! T_T

    1. No because you have a legal account and neither Origin nor Steam can notice that you added DLC’s.
      You can simply test that by logging in to Origin or Steam and select to move your game to a different location. Your complete folder incl. pirated DLC.s will be neatly moved to that new location.
      The registry-entries and your shortcut on your desktop will adjust to show that new location.

        1. 1. All DLC’s in 1 iso
          2. All EP’s (selectable) Winrar format
          All GP’s (selectable) Winrar format
          All SP’s (selectable) Winrar format
          3. All DLC’s (selectable) – direct downloads iso format
          4. All DLC’s update in Anadius Updater

          Downloads can be found on the page under step 3

  146. So I’m confused. I have the legal base game and have used this system for many releases but now you state: THE PACK SYSTEM DOES NOT WORK FOR EA DESKTOP USERS. Is that for real? Why suddenly no more? I have always used it. Can you please tell me why it no longer works? What happens if I continue using it?

    Because you also state:
    Do not use any other system to update as such systems will overwrite your Legal Game folder and you will loose access to the Gallery and render your The Sims 4 as cracked.

    I don’t understand… That means I can only use the pack system right?
    I have already downloaded High School Years, is it safe for me to add to my legal games folder like I did before, or will it overwrite and render my whole game as cracked?

    Thank you.

    1. I suggest:
      1. Update your legal game with the Anadius Updater and when prompted about your legal game click Yes
      2. Then run the EA DLC unlocker as you used to do.

      Nothing has changed, but as many users reported problems with EA Desktop I presumed that it would not function for those users.
      Apparently you used it successfully before so keep on doing it.

      1. Hi, thank you so much for your quick reply!
        I have been incredibly stupid because I totally misread it and I found out I do not have EA desktop lol. Excuse me!
        Just using Origin and it worked wonderfully yet again!
        Heel erg bedankt! 😀

      1. Just deleted all those files, but still nor working.
        If i try get in online it tells me about the invalid redmin (but is the value that the page shows me). If i try get in offline it tells me about the [ed35e0ea:29f00e76:00000000: 18a1dd51] error.

        Maybe its my Steam? Everytime i try to play the legal version its says that it couldn’t get into sync with Steam Cloud, I choose to play anyway but the game won’t start. Same if i try from Origin Desktop or EA Desktop.

        Also tried to repair the game with Origin and the Updater, nothing happens. Is there a way i could contact you on Discord? If not, is okay.

        Anyway thank you so much for you help so far!!

  148. Hey! So i’ve been having issues with my game, to the point i couldn’t get in, even if everything was going perfect before. I unistalled and installed everything again, including the game and Origin deskpot, i also tried with a new account in the Origin website but it does not work, cause all i get is a pop-up saying that the redmin isn’t valid. I read that it should change everytime you log in and out, but my doesn’t. It’s been days trying to fix it, but it just won’t work. I also tried without any mods, doesn’t work either. I tried to look for solutions on internet but it didn’t change anything. What should I do? I was really happy to find web, hope you can help me!

    1. Ugh, nevermind, now the error is the [ed35e0ea:29f00e76:00000000: 18a1dd51]
      Again, don’t know what to do either tho

  149. The latest pack, high school years isn’t showing up in the sims 4 updater. My updater is up to date and I have no boxes to tick, any solutions? Thanks

  150. Sims 4 is on sale right now on Steam and I want to buy it, I just don’t know which version to get. Digital Deluxe Edition or base game? Will it make any difference?

  151. hi! i currently have the (anadius’) cracked version of the game and dlcs. i’m planning to buy the game from steam and i’m wondering if i have to logout the origin account i have for the cracked version so i can login the new info? and, is it possible for me to the two like cracked and legal game? thank you!

    1. You can delete the unwanted EP, FP,SP, GP from your legal installation folder of the Sims 4
      You can also switch off unwanted packs by opening the EA DLC Unlocker -> g_The Sims 4 -> place a semicolon in front of the IID -> Run setup again

  152. Thank you guys SO much for what you do!!
    I just tried it to add both Werewolves and High School to my game and everything works!! I’m so excited to also be able to use the gallery bc that was honestly my fav thing about the Sims 4.

    Thank you so much, again! <333

    1. instead of origin detected it says “EA desktop detected” in that spot in the ea dlc unlocker. Even so, I followed each step and still dont have the dlcs in my game… Please help!!!

      1. if you have EA Desktop or Origin installed. If you have both it will detect
        EA Desktop only and game started from Origin won’t have the DLCs unlocked!
        If this happens reinstall Origin and run the script again

        1. i reinstalled origin twice using the originthinsetup download from the website, but the unlocker doesn’t detect origin downloaded?

    1. No don’t worry, I just got banned 1 week for insulting EA and they check my account but never mentioned anything related with this (because they can’t)

  153. I cant “run as administrator” I really loved this. this saved my life lol. Please repair it or update it!

  154. Hi I have been having a lot of issues so here are all of them:
    first I was getting the download to use after trying several times
    then I think I figured it out by doing the anadius downloader
    that takes 2 hours to download so im going to check it aftter
    Then I have 3 questions:
    can I still use the gallery?
    will it auto update or do I need to manually do it for each new update?
    can I still have ccs and/or mods with this? (i really like ccs but I can possibly live without mods)

    THANK YOU in advance!

    1. Yes, you can still use the gallery
      Yes, it will auto update via Origin but you must add folders for new expansions manually
      Yes, you can use mods/cc provided these are adapted for the latest version

  155. Hi! All my sims are red and white after installing the dlcs, I’ve tried moving the folder to the desktop but nothing changed.

  156. hi! ive followed all the steps in downloading the unlocker and the dlc does show up on the menu screen but not in gameplay. ive tried repeating all steps multiple times, restarting my computer and reinstalling the sims but nothing happens. what should i do?

    1. 1.Download the unlocker
      2.Follow the first step
      3.Now go to “All DLC’s in 1 iso download” in ‘Step 3’
      4.After finishing the download, Mount the ISO file with Windows Explorer
      5.Copy and Paste every folder inside to your sims 4 location
      6. If you want the Werewolves DLC you need to download it individually from here: ‘https://sims.tarac.nl/direct-links-to-packs’
      ´
      since the “All DLC’s in 1 iso download” does not include this one (GP12)

      enjoy

  157. i’ve also reinstalled the EA DLC unlocker multiple times. reinstalling and installing. nothings working

  158. hello! i’ve done everything it’s told me to. i’ve followed the instructions step by step, (or as i assume) countless of times and every-time there has been no change. the expansion packs have stayed as “unowned.”

    i’ve made sure to extract all the right ep’s in the legal sims folder. i’m not sure what i’m doing wrong?

    the only difference that i noticed that instead of it saying “origin detected” it says “EA Desktop detected” instead. I’m not sure if there’s a difference being made there with that?

  159. if i ever want to delete all the cranked stuff and play exclusively with my legal game how should i do it?

  160. hey! my stupid sister tried to add newest expasion pack to her legit base game with anadius updater, put she checked ‘no’ on the box asking if she has legit game. now idk what the hell should i do, because the non-legit game box shows up now when she tries to open the game. help me, i beg you.

    1. Let Origin Repair your legal game. It will overwrite the folder Game again with the legal details.
      It won’t alter the pirated expansion packs.
      Run the EA DLC Unlocker to include the pirated items in your legal game

  161. Hey! If you use this system, can you upload your builds to the gallery using furniture from packs w/o EA flagging them/your account, or can you only download them? Thanks!

  162. I can’t run .bat file on Mac. I’ve tried really hard but I have no idea how to do it. Please help 🙂

  163. i’ve downloaded all the packs and after this patch and the new pack, i cant change the color of clothes, some things are just white squares and i cant use anything at all properly which is affecting my gameplay a lot.

    1. I’ve seen a lot of people with this issue and 90% of the time it’s because of mods. Make sure all yout mods are updated or remove all custom content.

    2. This has nothing to do with the downloader, and everything to do with the more columns mod. Try removing that and the issue will be gone.

    1. Hi Mila, did you follow the same steps you went through with the previous packs? I’m running into the same problem; even after trying multiple times with removing/re-adding entitlements. The High School Years world doesn’t show up in my manage worlds, nor does all the other content of the expansion. I think we have to wait for an updated DLC unlocker (I’ve been running all the packs up to Werewolves fine with the Anadius method on MacOS with M1).

  164. okay here’s my problem i did eveything but documents not in pplace cuz i got this “download to use” i cannot find the document anywhere to put them in the right folder the intallation folder. i did everything but cannot solve this problem reinstalled did everything no chance i dont get it what i am doing wrong can you help me pls

  165. Hi! I did everything step by step, as shown above and everything seems to be working great! Except for the worlds that come with the newest packs. I see them on the map menu but when I click to see the world it just shows up as black with the UI saying “travelling with [household name]” on top of the screen and the pic of my current household at the bottom left corner. This happens, for example, with Tartosa. Without this issue… 10/10!

      1. okay here’s my problem i did eveything but documents not in pplace cuz i got this “download to use” i cannot find the document anywhere to put them in the right folder the intallation folder. i did everything but cannot solve this problem reinstalled did everything no chance i dont get it what i am doing wrong can you help me pls

      2. Thank you for replying! And it actually did turn out to be mod related. For anyone wondering, it was Twisted Mexi’s TOOL mod that just had to be updated.
        Now that I’ve added the latest EP to my game the icons in cas and build mode don’t show up, i.e. they look like base game items with out the EP logo in the corners. And I can’t sort items by the pack. I assume this is yet again mod related.

      3. Thank you for replying! And it actually did turn out to be mod related. For anyone wondering, it was Twisted Mexi’s TOOL mod that just had to be updated.

  166. So i downloaded the EA DLC unlocker v2, extracted, but cannot figure out the next step “right click on setup” do you have a full tutorial video of how to make this all work?

      1. Hello Tarak, I downloaded the games and everything works fine, but when I want to play the sims offline the packs show up as not having what to do to play the sims offline with all the packs?

  167. hey, so when i check to see if i have all the packs, it says i do but when i go to the destinations that came with the pack they said its not installed yet and i have to restart, i did many times and still they havent allowed me to go in.

      1. the thing is with step 1, run as adminstrator doesnt show for me, it just says run. and i repeated that step it still doesnt let me do it. :((

  168. Hi
    I have a weird problem, because everything works as it should, but all the items from werewolves game pack are named **Debug** and all the activities have empty names. I tried uninstalling the pack, repairing game, reinstalling dla unlocker but it didn’t work

      1. I removed all the mods, created new game just to be sure but unfortunately it didn’t change anything ;/
        Maybe tomorrow I’ll try to reinstal whole game

  169. i didn’t turn malwarebytes off during downloading and it blocked two links from zippyshare idek how but i just got the notification and my question is will it break the crack or can i still use it?

      1. I downloaded ea dlc unlocker and sims4updater, then I started downloading my missing dlcs with sims4updater. during the downloading process, malwarebytes popped up 3 times – two trojans, one riskyware. all with links to zippyshare. i didnt care too much, just waited till the end. the game works nicely. thanks for sharing!

  170. i’ve ran the ea dlc unlocker, pressed 1, 2 and 14 and got no errors. the dlcs show up on the main menu of the game but they aren’t there on the actual gameplay. what do i do?

  171. So I downloaded all the GPs and SPs I wanted and they work just fine, but I can’t connect to the gallery. I’ve tried repairing my game but it didn’t work. Is there any way to fix that?

    (I did all this on my legal sim 4 origin account)

      1. Also experiencing the same problem of being unable to connect to the gallery when it was working a few days ago.

        1. yes also same problem here, can’t connect to gallery whereas few days ago it still works and can connect

      1. hi!So i have done all the steps but when i open the game i can see that i have all the paks but when i want to play the game i cant.It says to me to pick a season but i cant clik on it.What should i do?

          1. So, do I have to update my game with the sims 4updater every time, or can it update through origin? Because automatic updates are turned on now, will i lose access to the gallery if it updates through origin?

          2. Updates via Origin do not add new DLC’s to your legal game. Your game will update to the most recent version but new DLC’s must be added separately (Anadius Updater – when prompted about legal game, tick Yes -, PLUS EA DLC Unlocker).
            No, you will not lose access to the Gallery.

  172. So I also had the issue that the dlc appeared as “download to use” and I figured it out, thought I’d share the solution. I followed the download steps, put the files (extracted) into my legit game folder, reinstalled the unlocker, and yet it still didn’t work. I checked my files and it turns out that 7zip had extracted the packs into the EP/GP/SP folders, and then made another EP/GP/SP folder inside of those. So it was EP01 inside another EP01 folder.
    Fixing the folderception and moving the EP01 from its parent folder into the game folder made the error go away, and I’m good to go now. I hope this helps some others!

    1. could you eloborate on that? Where are the EP/GP/SP folders? What if I have FP01 instead of EP01? I used Winrar to extract instead.

      1. I’m using EP01 as an example, this was the case for all of my folders, so take a look and see what the contents of your folders look like. It should just be the EP/GP/SP/FP with the number, and the contents directly inside of that.

        Here’s what I did, hopefully clearer:

        I’d prompted 7zip to extract all the contents into my legit game directory as instructed above in the tutorial video. 7zip made its own EP/GP/SP/FP folders and then put the extracted contents inside another EP/GP/SP/FP folder inside of those.

        My paths looked like this broken: C:\…\Origin Games\The Sims 4\EP01\EP01 or C:\…\Origin Games\The Sims 4\FP01\FP01, and so on and so forth….
        I’d find the pack’s content inside of that second folder, which made it unreadable to the game.

        To fix it I went into the C:\…\Origin Games\The Sims 4\EP01 folder, CTRL+X the EP01 folder I found inside of that one, and then moved up into the proper C:\…\Origin Games\The Sims 4 folder and CTRL+V my copied EP01/etc… folder there.
        This prompted no overwrites from my laptop, but I checked afterwards whether I
