Add pirated DLC’s to your legal The Sims 4 Game for free

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.
Or maybe it’s worth the € 12,50 to buy the base game from Origin

  • 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.

Preparations in Origin

  1. Log in to your Origin account
  2. Click on the word Origin (left top bar)
  3. Click Application Settings
  4. Click Application
  5. In Client update:   switch “Automatic game updates” and “Automatically update Origin” on – see picture below.
    Now your game and Origin update whenever you start your The Sims 4


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 and typed 1 for the Install EA DLC Unlocker you should see

Configs folder created
Main config copied
DLL added
Origin detected.

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

 


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 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

 

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 installed packs

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

  1. Open the folder C:\Documents\Electronic Arts
  2. When you play in English (and or many other languages) you’ll see a folder The Sims 4
  3. In Dutch you’ll see De Sims 4, In French Les Sims 4, in German Die Sims 4, in Spanish Los Sims 4
  4. Move (not copy) that file to f.e. your desktop
  5. Run your game and you’ll see a welcome screen for each and every package installed
  6. When you’ve seen them all, close the game.
  7. You now know for sure that these packs are included in your game.
  8. From the file on your desktop (item 4 above) copy the folders Mods, Saves and Tray back to your newly created The (Los, Les, Die, De) Sims 4 in 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’ll have to 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)

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 this version simply because there is no crack.
You can remove unwanted DLC’s by deletion of the folder for the DLC.

  1. Hi,

    I know you can download from the gallery with this, but can you also upload? Right now I’m switching between cracked and legit, but I can’t upload stuff that way… Will this be possible with this solution?

    Thanks!

        1. Save your household, lot, or room by clicking the Save button. Open the Gallery, and go to the My Library tab and find the content you want to share. Select the content you want to share. Click on the Cloud icon in the bottom-left corner to upload your content to the Gallery.

  2. Hello

    I have the original game from EA ( got it from Xbox Game Pass)
    I followed all the instructions, tha game says that the DLCs are “owned” but it also says that “requiers the sims 4 game (sell separatelly)

    what can I do please? Thank you, kisses and hugs

  3. can i run my game through steam now or do i always have to run it through the shortcut?
    and if i do run it through steam will it just play the game without all dlc’s or will it break it?

    1. Run the Anadius Updater and when prompted about your legal game click on Yes.
      This will create a new folder named Game-cracked inside your The Sims 4 installation folder.
      You can then play the game without Steam by Your installation folder → Game-cracked → Bin → TS4_x64.exe

      1. but what happens if you run the game through the steam launcher (or origin launcher) instead of through the .exe file?
        will it break the game or just run the game without all dlc

        1. When you run the game via Steam or Origin you have access to the Gallery
          same applies when you use the TS4_x64.exe from the folder Game.
          Only when you run from Game-cracked you still have the full game but no access to the Gallery

  4. Hi there!! Just a leaving a comment to you and Anadius to say thanks a million! Figured it all out and it was an absolute piece of cake, definitely the best and simplest method!
    My advice if you’re not great with this stuff is to take your time, read instructions over and over again, trawl through answers given to others on forums/comments and most importantly, just google stuff you dont know! Its so easy to go into the process once you actually understand what you are doing! And ironically, this entire process actually took me far less time to complete than the just the initial download process for the SIms 4 base game on Origin (its more broken than MWS I swear)…

  5. Hey, so I have the legit base game, and I’m adding some dlcs I don’t already own. I also use mods/cc and I was wondering if it’s a necessary step to turn on auto updates for origin and the sims, usually if you have mods ur supposed to take them out before updating. I could just leave the mod folder out until I play but if I don’t have to that would be nice.

    1. Almost each and every update will make some mods/cc outdated and these can ruin your game.
      Electronic Arts cannot know what memory-addresses are used by modders and good chance that these addresses will be overwritten by new packs or updates.

  6. cracked the game the first time, missed a dlc step, uninstalled the crack. tried again next day, right dlc steps, but my game wont show the dlc packs as “owned” and can no longer crack. please help

    1. Let Origin repair your game.
      Run the Updater. When prompted about your legal game select Yes

      In the EA DLC unlocker click on setup as an administrator, type 5 to remove the unlocker items.
      Download the latest EA DLC Unlocker again, run setup, type 1,2 and 14

  7. i did all of the steps correctly yet the game will no longer “crack”. the first time i did it, i got a pop up with the extra content, all packs were marked as owned. i accidentally messed one step up in the dlc downloading (since then i have figured out the dlc section via a second pc and everything went smoothly) so i uninstalled the crack to redo all of my steps, redid it properly, but this time i got no pop up, packs are no longer marked as owned, and any dlc i put in will not register. i’ve uninstalled sims and origin to try again and im still having the same issue. please help! ):

    1. In the EA DLC unlocker click on setup as an administrator, type 5 to remove the unlocker items.
      Download the latest EA DLC Unlocker again, run setup, type 1,2 and 14

  8. everything worked perfectly for me :)! i have minimal knowledge on doing anything on pc (just switched from mac a few months ago) and the instructions were very clear. i especially like the little download that locates where my dlc folder is, would have taken a lot longer without it.

  9. hello, i followed the steps but i’ve encountered some problems. when i try to play an existing household, a popup comes up and says the game failed to load with the error code 132:33c440:c98ba9df . also, when i try to make a pet sim or occult sim there would be question marks all over the sim and half the body wouldn’t load. i couldn’t even see the pet sim at all. please help 🙁

    1. I am having the same problem, I have all the pack downloaded and all the stuff is there but when I open in some worlds aren’t their and things are in question marks. Help please!

  10. oky so ive followed everything exactly but everything is just covered in question marks and the world wont load, i get an error 135:b8175610:cf32cbab everytime i try to play in the game, my cas works besides the stuff in question marks, and I did the validator and said all my packs were good but couldn’t detect the cracked version.

  11. When I try to download the winrar format, winrar says “The archive is either in unknown format or damaged” how can I fix this?

  12. is it normal that when i open the game it says that the werewolves dlc is owned but during the game i cannot use items of that dlc bcause it says i have to install it? i mean, the game says i own it but i didnt install it, i even did the check the guide say to do and it shows the number ”81” which is correct so i dont understand?

  13. I keep run into error code 132:2f1962c8:461e12c4 after I make my sims in cas and go then go to buy a lot. I also tried restarting my computer to try and fix it

    1. Try this:
      1. Move (not copy) the folder The Sims 4 out of C:\Documents\Electronic Arts to your desktop
      2. Start your game again (all own made sims, lots etc. seem to be lost)
      When OK now, copy the folders Tray and Saves back from the Sims 4 folder on your desktop to the newly created folder The Sims 4 in C:\Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 4

      Still no luck ?
      Read this page

  14. Hello, I downloaded the last gamepack werewolfs, and I have all CAS ans build mode items, and I do have live mode working correctly, but when I want to go to the world that is included it just doesn’t load and I have to restart my game to access to “manage worlds” again, why ?

    1. I am also having the same issue where the world isn’t loading. I have updated my dlc unlocker and deleted/reinstalled my pack but it’s still not working

  15. I just want to ask before doing this… is there any chance the origin detects this? Could you get banned from using the gallery/from origin? I’m just worried about that haha.

    1. No, because you do have a legal game and registered it with Origin/Electronic Arts.
      Adding cracked DLC’s is outside the scope of Origin.
      Even when you legally want to move your The Sims 4 installation folder to another location by opening Origin, rightclick on the picture of the Sims 4 and select move, the entire game incl. cracked DLC’s will be moved by Origin.
      (handy solution when you want to move your game from your C:\drive to f.e. your D:\drive)

  16. hi, i tried so much time to install, uninstall, etc i did every step well, but i still have this problem. it install all the EP, GP, SP and FP in this folder : C:/Programs Files (x86)/Origin Games/The Sims 4/Delta, but when i move them in the installation folder (C:/Programs Files (x86)/Origin Games/The Sims 4), and when i open my game via Origin, there are question marks on my sims when i try to dress them (i compare the cracked ones with my legal EP Go To work and there are a lot of files missing. please help i am so upset, thanks a lot

  17. help. it says that “you already own this pack” but it doesnt show up in the game. how can i fix this?

  18. Little note for the sims players with both origin and ea desktop:
    The unlocker will auto detect EA Desktop (the new, beta program) in case both are installed. In this very specific case, which was mine too, just launch The Sims from the EA Desktop app/program.

    Otherwise it wont unlock any of the DLC.
    Plus, in case you’re missing the holiday stuff, its a free pack so just grab it.

    1. This is caused by the fact that the details in your folder Game state that the DLC’s are present and your present EA DLC Unlocker has no details for Werewolves
      Delete your present EA DLC Unlocker and do step 1 again (incl. download for latest Unlocker with Werewolves).

    2. I own the packs in Sims 4, but they arent in Sims 4. i have the dogs and cats pack but i cant create a dog or cat. or a vampire or wherewolf.

  19. It says I own the DLC but I need to download them to use them. Any fix for this? I don’t see them downloading, and when I click on them, it just takes me to the store page to buy the DLC.

      1. Hello, I have the same issue as the person above, and I have redone step 1 but still don’t seem to have the packs “owned”

    1. hi, i tried so much time to install, uninstall, etc i did every step well, but i still have this problem. it install all the EP, GP, SP and FP in this folder : C:/Programs Files (x86)/Origin Games/The Sims 4/Delta, but when i move them in the installation folder (C:/Programs Files (x86)/Origin Games/The Sims 4), and when i open my game via Origin, there are question marks on my sims when i try to dress them (i compare the cracked ones with my legal EP Go To work and there are a lot of files missing. please help i am so upset, thanks a lot

  20. Hello, I have a problem, I have all the items in the werewolf pack but the map does not appear. I have the legal game and I did it with EA DLC Unlocker v2.

  21. Can I use the gallery without creating a new account since it seems impossible to pass the horrible dice puzzle?

  22. I need help. I’ve tried every step and followed the exact steps but the dlcs still appera as ”not owned”. Btw my game is bought from steam. The steps I have followed 4 or 5 times and didn’t work

        1. hi !! everything went ok for me during the download of all the dlc it’s just that when i open the setup as an administrator i see ea desktop detected instead of origin, i guess that’s why my dlc doesn’t work when i open the game. any solution to change that?

    1. I have this same problem, im pretty stuck bc I don’t have a run as administrator option for the DLC, only winrar.

  23. It worked. If it doesn’t try redoing everything again and follow all the instructions. Delete EA unlocker then re-install it, run as administrator (make sure Origin is open) follow the instructions then open the legit game as administrator. It worked best for me. Thank you again for this!

  24. Thank you so much! It worked. If it doesn’t try redoing everything again and follow all the instructions. Delete EA unlocker then re-install it, run as administrator (make sure Origin is open) follow the instructions then open the legit game as administrator. It worked best for me. Thank you again for this!

  25. Hi,
    Ik heb alle stappen gevolgd, maar nu is mijn opgeslagen huis+huishouden ineens verdwenen… hoe krijg ik deze terug?

  26. Hi!! I tried opening it but I can’t. It says cannot execute the specified program. I’m using Windows 11, on 64 bit

  27. Hey so I tried to install the files, ran out of space on my C: drive, moved the game over to my D: drive since it has four times as much space, redirected the folder for the Anadius updater, and then it tells me I ran out of space on my C: drive again. How do I make it so that the files only go to the D: drive or where do I find the files to move over to the correct folder in the D: drive?

    1. Origin is still directing to your folder on the C: drive, so you have to re-route it.
      The updater follows the path in the register (which still shows your C: drive)
      1. Open Origin
      2. Go to My Game Library
      3. Right-click on the picture of The Sims 4
      4. Select Move Game and lead it to your new directory on the D: drive
      Origin will now move your Legal The Sims 4 installation to the new location on your D: drive and also re-writes the register, enabling the Updater to find it.

      1. I i couldnt exactly figure how to comment but i followed the steps and when i go in game and click my packs it shows I own them but they are not downloaded. I dont know how to figure this out and also when i go into CAS and try to dowbnload a sim with expansion packs or any packs on it, it says the packs are not yet downloaded. I cannot see anything when i click shift and f1 in the download manager. Help?

  28. It says when i want to run setup.bat that i need to extract the file first, if it’s a problem, how can i solve it? If it’s normal, where should i extract it?

    1. STEP 1
      Download a small file EA DLC Unlocker v2.
      Extract that file with Winrar
      Right-click on Setup and run as Administrator

      1. hi i’m commenting here because i don’t know how to do my own comment but i followed everything just like in the video. However it says “download to use” and the files are not in the “The Sims 4” folders & nowhere to be found, is it because my game is in French and not in English?

        1. The only difference between French and English is that in French your folder is called Les Sims 4 instead of The Sims 4

  29. This worked brilliantly, thanks for providing me with hours of fun and saving me a lot of money! You’re an absolute rockstar. 😀

  30. I downloaded the Method 4 version and all ran smoothly. My configuration is set and the g_ The sims 4 folder has the cnt at 78. When I opened the game, it gave me notifications for new content and the icons for the new worlds appeared. When I hover over the world icon, however, it gives the message that it still needs to be downloaded? When I go into Origin there is no download happening nor is there an option to initiate it? Do you have any suggestions or should I start the process again from the beginning?

    1. Are you using mods ?
      When yes, temporarily move (not copy) the folder C:\Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 4 to your desktop.
      Play the game and see what the Worlds do now.
      When no problems, copy back the folders Saves and Tray from the file on your desktop to the newly created C:\Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 4

      1. Dit werkt niet bij mij. Er staat nog steeds dat ik de pakketten wel heb, maar dat gedownload moeten worden. Maar hoe en waar geen idee..

        1. Download the most recent EA DLC Unlocker.
          Extract with winrar
          Run Setup as Administrator
          Select 5 to delete previous installation (you probably get an error message)
          Repeat 5 again
          Select 1,2 and 14

          1. Still nothing is downloaded in the game. It says i have it, but it’s not downloaded.

      2. I moved my sims 4 folder to my desktop but origin wont let me run the sims 4. anytime I try to run it it says its not installed.

        The only way it lets me play is if I put it back in the origin folder

        I’m trying to add mods to my game and its not detecting them at all, Im just using cc, no script.

        1. You cannot just manua;lly move the original the Sims 4 game to another location.
          Open Origin, right-click on the Sims 4 icon and select move to …

          1. Oh! I was just dragging it haha.

            But I did just do it that way and origin is saying it can’t put the game there, its invalid or something. so I made a folder on my desktop and tried it that way and It allowed me, I followed the other steps and it still didn’t work 🙁 Is there anyway you could upload a video of how to do this? Or is there a discord I could join to talk through this?

  31. For step 1, where do i extract the winrar file to set it up as administrator? I’m a bit confused.

    1. Confused by this as well….it just extracts to a folder and if i right click the folder i don’t have that option…no video tutorials either…guess I’m gonna try the cs.rin one, seems to have more detail

  32. Hi, if I have the legit base game and im using this to get the packs, does origin also update the packs? Or so i have to come here and redownload the packs when there is an update to them?

    1. Origin does not update the packs individually. Changes are made within the folders Install, Data, Delta, Game. You don’t have to worry about the EP’s, GP’s aso.
      Origin keeps the Install, Data, Delta and Game folders updated. It’s only when a new pack is released that you must download it (or use the Anadius Updater)

  33. Excellent article; it works perfectly, thank you so much!
    I already owned The Sims 4 and the Cats & Dogs EP on Origin and I managed to get every other content there working without any hassle following this guide, saved thousands of euros from good ol’ gr€€dy EA 🙂

  34. hi! i have the legit game and i followed all the instructions (i installed the dlcs using the anadius updater in step 3) yet, when i open my game, it says that i don’t have any dlc installed

    i run the unlocker again and turned my pc on and off, i don’t know what else to do, anyone has any help?

  35. hey hey i downloaded everything made sure everything was good before i booted up the sims 4 however when i got into the game and went straight to cas ( obviously before hand i checked to make sure all the games are now owned which they are ) i now have red stuff and question marks on everysingle hair clothing accessories you name did i do something wrong

    ( currently on origin repairing the game to see if that helps me any )

    1. Try this:
      * Close your game
      * Temporary move (not copy) the folder The Sims 4 out of C:\Documents\Electronic Arts to your desktop
      * Open the game – still all that red stuff and question marks ?

      If no problems now
      * the culprit is one or more of your mods
      * close your game
      * from the moved file The Sims 4 on your desktop, copy the folders Saves and Tray to the automatically created new folder C:\Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 4

      1. Hi, I have the same problem. I followed all the instructions and yet, when i go into CAS and click add sim i get red question marks all over the sim although i already deleted all my mods that I had. I use windows 10 by the way. Please help, what do i do??

        1. Deleting mods will not help. Temporarily move (not copy) the entire folder The Sims 4 out of C:\Documents\Electronic Arts to your desktop and try your game again.

  36. Followed instructions, game says the content is available to download, tried looking everywhere for the DLCs but they are no where to be found in any of my folders? Does this dlc download not work at all if the installed game is on an external hard drive? I’ve gone into origin’s file under my program files and there’s nothing there at all. There’s not much on this page about troubleshooting.

  37. I know this is a dumb question but will this work with a cracked game? I just cant make the updater work so i was thinking about this

  38. I don’t have the game on origin, but i have it on the EA app. i tried installing it and the game is saying that i own the DLC but its not installed? is this even still compatable?

    1. I couldn’t figure out how to comment but I’m having the same issue. I have the base game and some packs via EA desktop. The 1st time I downloaded, I could only play the game through the ‘Game Cracked’ folder. Then when it updated, I got EA access back but not the cracked game.

      Should I just delete EA and get the origin version?

  39. dumb question if i’ve the legal game do i need to download the patch thing? and base file that’s automatically there

    1. Update your game via Origin.
      Then add the DLC’s to your legal game. When you want ALL the DLC’s download this torrent. When download is finished, mount the iso and copy the folders from the mounted iso to the installation folder of your legal game.
      When you only want some DLC’s download the torrent for the EP’s + GP’s, select the items you want. After the download is finished, extract the downloaded DLC’with Winrar and then copy the folders for the DLC’s to the installation folder of your legal game.
      For the SP’s use this torrent

      Don’t mesh with folders like __Install, Data, Delta, Game, Support and don’t do the patch (Origin will take care of these folders and the patch)

      Now do Step 1 of this page

      1. Hi I have done all the steps and as far as I know I’ve done them right but I have got the red and white ? Skins, when repairs off origin it says 7 files will be reacquired
        I’ve reinstalled whole thing again and it’s the same

        1. Even when you re-install a 1000 times, it does not change the situation regarding saves, trays and mods.
          Move (not copy) the folder The Sims 4 out of the folder C:\Documents\Electronic Arts to your desktop and start the game again.
          No problems now ? – from the folder on your desktop copy the folders Saves and Tray back to the newly created folder C:\Documents\Electronic Arts.
          This will bring back your own Sims and Lots to your game.
          Still no problems ?
          Good luck to sorting out the faulty mods.

  40. I really appreaciate this and I am sure it’s supposed to work but maybe bc English isn’t my native language I’ve no idea what to do. I’ve the legal game, downloaded the files via torrent but it’s just xbin files not folders and I’ve read the instructions 100 of times

  41. hello. when i hower over the packs in game it says “download to use”
    i completed the first step, what do i put into the game file ?

  42. Hey! Does my legal base game and the packs I already bought with real money get destroyed if I download these free dlc’s?

  43. Does anybody know if this works on mac? i can’t get past step one bc I can’t run the setup.bat file. I have a legit copy, just want the DLC

      1. sorry for replying to this comment, i don’t know how to make my own

        anyway i am having a similar issue with my setup.bat file and it closes immediately after opening, even when i edited it by putting pause at the end of the code. any idea on how to fix this?

  44. Help needed! Trying to download the EA DLC unlocked from the link, it downloads seeminly fine but when I try to unpack it says that the file is damaged.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    I have tried downloading it a number of times incase something skipped out but all have the same issue.

  45. hello, i followed all of the instructions and opened my game. the dlcs all say “you already own it” but in the actual game its like the dlcs doesnt even exist! how do i fix this problem and is anyone else having the same problem as me? i play sims 4 through steam btw

    1. also, the dlc packs says “must have sims 4 (sold seperately) to work” in red text. what does this mean?? i bought the legit game so,,, huh?????

      1. It looks like you did not add the DLC’s to your legal folder.
        When you click on view it always shows that message even when you have everything installed correctly.

  46. hello, can i have the dlcs installed on different drive than C? I dont have enough space. I’ve tried but it still installed on the C drive not D drive. please help.

    1. Open Origin, click on My Game Library, right-click on the picture of The Sims 4 and select Move Game. Now select a location on your D: drive.
      When that is finished, add the DLC’s to that new location.
      Then, open the DLC unlocker run Setup (as Admin) and select 5. Uninstall EA DLC Unlocker.
      When that is done, reboot your computer and redo the entire step 1 of the Unlocker again.

  47. Thank you so much for your work! I’ve been playing with the packs for a couple hours now and everything is working perfectly so far. Thank you soooo much again! 🙂

  48. Hello! I ran in to a problem. I downloaded the dlc´s and played about 40 hours with them, but now started the game and every single dlc is not owned anymore. Is there a fix?

      1. When i run setup.bat it comes up with “You put the Unlocker in a path that will break the setup script. Move it somewhere else, for example “C:\unlocker” or “D:\unlocker”.” do I need a whole different drive to make this command work? when I press any key to continue it just.. closes

          1. I had the same problem and I moved the unlocker into every folder possible. Is there a fix?

  49. Why do I follow the steps,but my configuration is set and the g_ The sims 4 folder has the cnt at 76?

          1. I downloaded the unlocker v2, but I don’t know why g_The sims4 only shows CNT=76,not 77.

  50. I just wanted to say a MASSIVE thank you for all of this. I’ve been enjoying The Sims 4 for a little while now and was initially so worried that I would lose it all eventually, or not understand how to update, etc, but the process is so easy and because of you and your hard work, I’ve had hours of fun and I can’t thank you enough! Keep up the good work!

  51. Help please, I’m stuck at Step 1.
    There’s an error while I run the setup.bat as administrator.
    It goes, “The system cannot execute the specified program”.

      1. Hi. Thank you so much for this!
        I downloaded the Method 4 version and all ran smoothly. My configuration is set and the g_ The sims 4 folder has the cnt at 77. When I opened the game, it gave me the notifications for new content and the icons for the new worlds appeared. When I hover over the world icon however, it gives the message that it still needs to be downloaded? When I go into Origin there is no download happening nor is there an option to initiate it? Do you have any suggestions or should I start the process again from the beginning?

        1. I am experiencing the same issue. The packs continue to say “Download to use” but I extracted them to the right place, and the icons for the worlds are showing but no new content is being shown. It continues to say I need to download, How can this be fixed??

          1. I also am experincing this issue. Tried all the abov to fix it, yet the packs still say download to use. Im stuck on what to do next, i really want to play. Also, only two packs do not say download to use and i can use them, so im not sure. Can i have help please?

          2. 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

  52. hi! thank you for your hard work.
    i followed all the steps but the packs are still unowned. i installed the updater in the legal The Sims 4 folder where there are also the _Installer, Delta, Data, Game and Support folders. did i do right? i installed the unlocker as well. what did i do wrong? don’t tell me i have to install everything again, please!!

    1. Neither the Updater nor the Unlocker should be placed inside the Sims 4 installation folder.(the one with Installer, Data, Delta aso.)

  53. Hi! Question, how do I transfer the DLCs to my legit game in Mac? I’ve already downloaded the “TS4-all-DLC’s 1.83.24.1030 [pack system only]
    .iso” Do I transfer the “.iso” file in my Electronic Arts folder?

    1. Mount the iso and then copy the folders of the DLC’s to the folder of your legit game (where you also see folders like Install, Data, Delta, Game)

        1. You can mount ISO images in Mac OS X by using Disk Utility, located in the /Applications/Utilities/ directory. After you have launched Disk Utility, navigate from the Disk Utility menu down to “Open Image File” and select your ISO file. The ISO should now appear mounted on the Mac OS desktop

  54. Hi! Thanks for the all work, I’m currently downloading all the DLCs to my original base game and files takes around 30 Gb is that normal or am I accidentally dowloading the base game too?

  55. Hello! Sorry for bothering you but I have a problem with the DLCs. After I finished all the steps, the game said that I already “owned” the packs in the game when I open the sims 4 but, when I try to use the packs, it doesn’t appear in build mode or even character customization mode. Are there any way to fix this?

    1. That looks to me a problem with outdated mods.
      Just to check that: Temporarily Move (not copy) the folder C:\Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 4 to your desktop
      Start the game (it will act as if just brand new)
      No problems now ? – Add the folders Tray and Saves from the file on your desktop to the newly created folder C:\Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 4
      Good luck sorting out which mod causes the issue.

      1. Hi! Sorry for the late reply and thank you for replying!

        Unfortunately, I don’t use any mods in my sims 4. I checked the config file and the other file with all the packs listed according to the instructions based on the zip file. I still can’t figure out the problem

        1. i have the same problem as you. i also have no mods (new computer) and followed every step exactly as written. when i open the game, it says i have EVERY pack installed already, even though i didn’t pick EVERY pack. regardless, only the packs i’ve obtained legally show up in CAS :/

          oh, i should mention: as soon as i double click on TS4 to start playing, a popup comes up from the unlocker that says “remember to download your DLC!” but i already did.

  56. Hi, I followed the steps, now all the packs extensions are “owned” but they don’t appear on the game. What’s the problem ?

  57. Hello, if I downloaded this today, which DLCs are included in this? Or are they all so far? Thanks

  58. Hi I followed all the steps and everything worked fine yesterday, but today when I opened the game it said that all the DLCs not owned. I redowloaded the Unlocker and step 1 but it still doesn´t work. (I´m sure all the DLC files are in the right place.)

    1. Could be mods related.
      If you use mods then temporarily move (not copy) your folder Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 4 to your desktop and start the game again.
      When game is OK now, copy from the file on your desktop the folders Tray and Saves back to the newly created folder Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 4

      1. Hi when I uninstalled the Anadius Updater and tried to repeat step 3 I met a new error. According to the Updater it couldn’t check available disk space.

      2. Hello, every time i try to extract the ep and gp and fp and sp, winrar says that the archive is either unknown or damaged and i can’t figure out why. i’ve retried multiple times to download them and i scanned my laptop for viruses and there aren’t any.

  59. Hallo, als ik dit installeer op een Windows pc, komt het dan ook op mijn Mac? Of moet ik voor Mac apart installeren?

  60. hey so i have the base game installed (steam) and have been trying to download the dlcs for a while but i keep getting the same error message
    extracting dlc-toggler.exe FAILED
    extracting dlc-uninstaller.exe FAILED
    extracting language-changer.exe FAILED

    CRITICAL ERROR
    An error occured when extracting archive. It’s already deleted so try again.
    CRITICAL ERROR
    Read the FAQ in “updater_readme.txt” for possible solutions.
    (i was doing step 3)

    i’ve read the faq and have done what it said to try and fix the problem but nothing seemed to work or maybe i have done something wrong? i’m not sure. if you could help me or possibly give me another way to install the dlc’s that will be much appreciated 🙂

    1. 1. You cannot extract an .exe file and the toggler does not work in a legal game anyway
      2. When you want to add DLC’s to your legal game: run the Updater and make sure you answer the question about your legal game with YES. When you say NO the updater will overwrite the legal folder Game.
      legal game

      3. In case you answered NO, repair your game via Origin or Steam
      4. Make your DLC’s available in the legal game with the EA DLC Unlocker.

  61. Hey, sorry for the inconvenience but when I installed the dlcs with “setup.bat” I put the “config.ini” and “g_The Sims 4.ini” files in the game file (not cracked) “Program Files”; “Origin Games” and “The Sims 4” and in the game nothing is detected?
    Thank you in advance !

    1. Do not move the config.ini and g.The Sims 4.ino to your game file.
      Run the setup.bat as an Administrator, type 1,2 and 13 and look at the responses.

      After typing 1 [enter] you should see a message in green
      Configs folder created
      Main config copied
      DLL added
      Origin detected.

      After typing 2 [enter] you should see the file 13. The Sims 4
      after typing 13 [enter] you should see Game config copied.
      after typing 3 [enter] you should see g.The Sims 4 (open that file with notepad), at the top of that file you should see:

      [config]
      CNT=76

      If cnt = lower than 76 you don’t have the latest version of the unlocker

  62. Will this be updated with the new pack coming out? Or how do I add that pack to my game when it comes out? Since it’s not in my cracked sims 4 version and I don’t want to download the whole cracked version again just to get that pack.

      1. my game is already on my D drive. the Updater seems to be downloading everything to my C drive, which i dont know how to change

  63. updated the unlocker and the new kit has gone in fine But never notified me I have a new pack and my mods were not disabled as they usually are Everything working very well THANK YOU

      1. hey i just tried to do it until the end of the first step when i open my sims 4 game the dlc is there but i have the same problem as the others then i try to use the updater and download it, the file is very large up to 18 gb and enough long time, does this work right? because it’s a waste of time (btw I’m still waiting to download the dlc)

        1. 18 GB looks like an installation of the base game.
          Did you click update and not repair ?
          Did you browse to the correct installation folder of the Sims 4 without opening that folder ?

          1. I’ve bought and installed the sims 4 base game and managed to play the dlc but I can’t open the game from steam and have to open it from the ts4 exe or is that how to run the game?

  64. Hello I did everything. I had bought the base game on Steam recently. I moved the dlc’s and packs from the folder with the cracked game I had installed before through Anadius into the new folder under steam. I restarted the laptop and opened the game via steam. All the packs say OWNED but when I play a saved file game it says “A restart is required to ensure all the packs for this save are enabled and trial content is only available for trial saves.” When I try to start a new game and try to download a household from gallery it’s saying “Content not installed. Purchased or other content used in this Gallery item is not installed. If you place it now, you will not see the uninstalled content.”

    How can this be when all the packs say OWNED and “you already own this pack.” when I click on them.

    1. In the legal Sims 4 open the Option menu -> Game options ->Other.
      Check “Enable Custom Content and Mods” and maybe also “Script Mods allowed”

      1. I Did That It Still Doesnt Work It Says Owned But The Same Problem: “Content not installed. Purchased or other content used in this Gallery item is not installed. If you place it now, you will not see the uninstalled content.” What Shall I Do I Also Restarted My Laptop 4 Times

  65. i did everything right, no problems or whatsoever but when i run the game and im on the home page it says i don’t have any packs

    please help

    1. Make sure that the foldes for the DLC’s are in the correct Installation folder.
      Run step 1 again incl. the download of the unlocker

    2. I have the base game and some packs. For my other pack I used the dlc. Do we have to update our dlc when the game updates, also do we have to reinstall our dlc packs too or just add the new ones we don’t have?

      1. When the game updates you don’t have to do anything, Origin or Steam will update automatically.
        Only when a new DLC is released you’ll have to download that new DLC

  66. hi, how can i add custom content again in game? after I add them in the mods folder they are automatically deleted and honestly I don’t know how to put them back in the game without being deleted

    1. Custom Content must be placed in the folder C:\Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 4\Mods and NOT in the installation folder.
      Also check the menu in the Game itself and allow custom content (this must be repeated after every new update)
      Options – Game Options – Other – Enable Customs Contents and Mods

  67. I installed all the dlc but there is no romance option. I deleted the Electronic Arts folder in Documents then repairing the game,
    I have sims on Steam, there shows all the dlc. I don’t know what’s causing this bug

  68. So I installed everything according to the guide and it worked perfectly I have all the dlc now, but now I can’t access the gallery anymore it always ask to go online but always failed to connect, I have the base game is there something I missed?

    1. Most probably you overwrote the folder Game in your legal installation folder.
      Download Game-Origin from this page
      When downloaded change the name of the .rar file from Game-Origin to just Game
      Extract with Winrar to a folder with the name Game
      Delete your existing folder Game from your legal installation folder
      Copy the downloaded and extracted folder Game to your legal installation folder

  69. Hi!

    I’m trying to download the DLCs, and I followed each steps, everything ran smoothly, the DLC unlocked worked all fine, I could run the DLCs Updater without any issues, but when I open my game to see if the DLCs appears, they have a message saying “download to use” (while also saying I have it), and when I tried the DLCs Togglers, it has an error message :

    “Could not read crack config file:
    Game-cracked\Bin\RIdOrigin.ini
    or
    Game-cracked\Bin\codex.cfg
    or
    Game\Bin\RIdOrigin.ini
    or
    Game\Bin\Codex.cfg
    or
    Game\Bin\anadius.cfg”

    I would like to know what I am doing wrong, so I can correct it and finally be able to play the game

    Thank you!

    1. Run the updater but this time when you are prompted for the legit game in your folder reply with Yes.
      When you get the message that you must update via Origin first let Origin update your game (I presume you have at least a legal base game)

  70. So I did step 3 where you copy them to your legal installation folder and they show as owned, but I am not sure how to download it to use the packs? It says I have to download to use the packs, but not sure how to

  71. Can’t believe it worked!! So excited to start playing
    Y’all better make sure to back up your save files and mods first !

  72. hi! thank you for thus tutorial. But i’m facing an issue. it says-
    Ordinal 101 Could Not Be Located in the Dynamic Link Library ……
    please help

  73. Okay so… Everything was working well, but now dlc’s won’t work. Im not sure why. I checked the files and everything was fine. I was trying update everything and also repairing too. Nothing changed. Im not sure but dlc’s and packs are in Steam folders, should I move the files to the Origin?

  74. Hello! Sorry to bother you again but do you know if I could download the dlcs through something else rather than the anadius updater? (always on the legal game) I successfully downloaded some packs BUT they work only partially. For example, I can’t use or buy some furniture, like it appears in the game but i can’t actually use it. Or for example if I click on the fridge or the pc nothing appears and my sim can use it only if he wants to, but i can’t do anything. (I can’t even use the maiusc cheat where I cancel all my sims needs). I’ve tried only downloading a few packs at a time, right now I just have 4 of them but they still don’t work (I mean they do but not entirely). The download always fails etc. so I was wondering if there was another way to download them apart from the anadius updater. Thanks! 🙂

    1. There are several ways to download DLC’s as mentioned on the page under step 3
      About not working DLC’s in your game: Move (not copy) the folder C:\Documents\Electronic Arts temporarily to your desktop, then start your game again (it is completely new as if you just bought it).
      No problems now ? – Copy the folders Tray and Saves from the folder on your desktop to the newly created folder C:\Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 4.
      You now have all your own Sims and Lots back in the game.
      Still working great ? – Your problem is within the folder Mods.

      Also make sure that when you hover over the pictures of the DLC’s they show “Owned” and not “Download to use”

  75. Hi I did everything as needed but I think I might’ve messed up somewhere with moving/copying files. I have the base game from origin but when I open the expansion packs, it does say owned when I over them but I can only view them. It says “Requires The Sims 4 (sold separately) and all updates.

  76. Hey, so all the packs are shown in my game and also in the config file, the last file is the menswear as 75. But when I’m trying to open, for example, university world or every other world, I create a new sim and press to move in one of the houses of the selected world, the game starts to load and then I get this window saying that game failed to load and I get an error code and they say to relaunch the game, what I do, but nothing changes. I open my game via the game bin folder. What do I do? please help me

    1. Are you using mods ?
      If so, temporarily move (not copy) the folder Documents – Electronic Arts – The Sims 4 to your desktop and start your legal game.
      No problems now ? – one or more of your mods are outdated.
      Copy the folders Saves and Tray back from the moved folder on your desktop to the newly created folder C:\Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 4
      You should then have your own sims and lots back in your game.

      1. hi, i had the same problem and did what you adviced to (moving the folder to my desktop), but it’s still not working (it still shows the error code), + my saves just vanished and idk where they are. could you maybe help me ? thank you

        1. When you moved the folder to your desktop your saves are still in the folder on the desktop.
          You can copy the folders Saves and Tray back from your desktop to the newly created folder C:\Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 4

  77. Hello and sorry if I disturb but could you tell me exactly where I should put the update folder? Because i have downloaded some of the dlcs and apparently they’re not in the right folder because in the game i still have to “download to use them” i tried moving the update folder in the The sims 4 folder but they still don’t appear in the game…

    1. You can put the updater folder anywhere on your computer.
      Make sure that when you start the updater you browse to the correct installation folder of the Sims 4

  78. Hello and thanks for this link! I have the legal base game and I’ve followed each step but when the download was almost finished a window appeared and said that I should try again because of an internet failure BUT my wifi was perfect. And, another thing is that in my Origin game I own every DLC theoretically.. so it says that I already own every package there is but i cant play with it in the game 🙁 now I’m trying again the download through the andius updater and see what happens

    1. OK I did as you told me and it all went smoothly and very fast but when it was about to finish it told me that i had to reinstall the updater because i deleted a folder? So I did and I’m doing it all again but now it’s going very slow and the download is of 30GB (before it was 28GB). I WONT GIVE UP!!!!

  79. I followed the steps indicated here, but even so when I enter the game, the DLCs still don’t appear. What am I doing wrong? I bought the game through Steam.

  80. I did ALL as instruction and somehow nothing shows up in the game 🙁
    When I run the game in the menu “Packs” I can see them but when I play nothing at all
    How to fix that? I tried everything :((((

  81. Hey! So i downloaded the sims through the EA app and my file location is (c:) > Program Files > EA Games > The Sims 4
    so this is where I put the file. Am i doing this all right? When I open the game the game menu states that I have the packs already but when I start playing I dont have access to cats and dogs? (maybe I am trying to get cats and dogs wrong in the game?) anyway please reply when you can I would really like for this all to work!

  82. Every time i click all de DLC and do the updater thing it downloads up until right to the end (almost 27GB) and then a window with error popsup and ay: “Download failed for some files, check your internet connection and TRY AGAIN” ive tried again multiple times and the same thing happens. im pretty sure ive done everything right.. also when i go to check the config file it shows all of the DLC and the number 75 is visible which is good but im stuck …

        1. Check your legal folder of the Sims 4.
          Are the EP’s, FP, GP’s and SP’s all there and shown as folders not as rar or iso files?
          Also check the individual folders as it might be that you have (as an example) a folder EP01 inside the folder EP01 or SP20 inside SP20.
          In such cases copy the inside folder to your desktop, delete the outside folder from your legal game folder and then copy it back from your desktop to your legal game.

  83. For the DLC unlocker, The Sims 4 is number 13, not 12 like the instructions say. If you type 12 you will be doing the sims 3. So be careful of that and make sure to type 13 when you get to that step

  84. Once everything is installed do you launch the game through Origin normally or only from the new cracked folder that gets created?

    1. via a shortcut of TS4_x64 in the legal folder The Sims 4\Game\Bin and not via the folder Game-cracked\Bin. You can also open the game via Origin

  85. Hello, all of my DLC show up in the game start menubut they all say “download to use” i am sure i put it in the correct folder Electronic arts > Sims 4. I dont know what to do please help?

    1. Don’t place DLC’s in the folder Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 4.
      Your legal game is probably in C:\Program Files (x64)\Origin Games\The Sims 4
      Update your config.file (see troublehooting)

      1. thank you so much for answering! When i try to use the Ea unlocker to download the dlc’s it downloads until right to the end and then says that certaiin files are missing and cant download… what should i do?

  86. Hi, how do you make this work with the Sims 3? I saw your comment from the other post and I tried to follow this but it doesn’t work. Origin doesn’t detect my Steam version of Sims 3.

  87. Hey! Quick question! So I followed through the first step, except I can’t proceed cause I can’t see the Installer anywhere or the shortcut to my game, I purchased it through steam! Not sure if I’m doing it right, I’m getting anxious.. Here’s the screenshot of my folder! https://imgur.com/a/xUsE79k

    I’m honestly confused as to what to do next, a little assistance would be super appreciated! Thanks!!

  88. so i did the pack thing, downloaded to torrent for DLCs and added them to my legal game. will i receive updates from steam? also i tried to install the Anadius updater but it gives an error when i try to unzip it (something like archive is damaged or non existent)

  89. My Sims 4 folder is located in C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\The Sims 4 and my game says “Download to Use” for all of the DLC I tried to add, where do I put the DLC in my files since I don’t think it follows the same format as the website says?

  90. I just wanna say. You’re an absolute saint for answering everyone’s questions, Tarac. You didn’t have to.

  91. I’m wondering if anyone can help me?
    I downloaded a cracked version of the game on an old laptop. I did this with a random Origin ID that I used. I also downloaded a bunch of the DLCs using the Anadius updater.
    I am now using my newer, much better laptop. This time, I bought the Base Game on Origin legally (also bought Cats and Dogs, and Seasons).
    My question is this: is there a way for me to quickly/easily copy and paste the DLCs I downloaded on my old laptop, into my Insatllation folder on my new laptop, with the legal game?
    Or will I need to go through the process of re-downloading the DLCs I want?

    Please help if you can! It’s a very slow process and I would love to avoid it if possible lol. Thanks in advance

    1. 1. Run your legal game via Origin (just to make it uptodate with the latest version.
      2. Copy the DLC’s from your old computer to an USB stick (or other medium) and from that USB stick to your new computer’s folder for the legit game. Most probably that is C:\Program Files (x86)\Origin Games\The Sims 4
      Don’t copy the folders __Install, Data, Delta, Game, Support.
      3. Download, extract and run the DLCunlocker (Step 1)

      1. omg thank you at first i was really confused and thought i did not work but after i tried step 1 again it updated origin and all the dlc’s came so thank you

  92. i did everything i was supposed to do up until part 2. i’m confused. it says i own all of the packs in game but i can’t see or use them at all. how do i actually add them in?

    1. idk but everytime i try to open a household i get an error code and its recommended u restart the game ? 1

  93. guys don’t bother with this. just download fitgirl’s repack with all of the packs included. simple, easy and quick 🙂

    1. I agree, it is simple and quick but unfortunately I cannot find a version any newer than 1.77.131.1030 and no access to the Gallery
      If you can provide a link to version 1.82.99.1030 it would be highly appreciated.
      With the Anadius Updater however you can update Fitgirl’s version to 1.82.99.1030.

  94. I copied the dlc and dlc toggler files from the sims 4 updater file to my legal game- the sims 4- installer folder and it comes up with the error message. “Could not read crack config file” Is there something I have missed?

  95. Hi, first of all, thank you so much for this. Second, do I have to download the EA DLC unlocker every time I’m going to add new dlc (step 1)? or do I do it just once and only do step 3 when new dlc comes out? thanks in advance

  96. I don’t really understand 🙁
    I’ve run the Setup file and done all that was stated in Step 1.
    Where do I find the DLC files to move into Bin folder? Or are they already part of the game after carrying out Step 1?
    I don’t get it.

    1. Read Step 3 or use the other methods as described after step 3.
      Don’t move these to the Bin folder but to the root directory of your The Sims 4 legal game.

  97. Hello I tried doing it. Says I own pack but says I have to download them. I’ve downloaded them. And still can’t play them.

  98. Hey, when I open setup after extracting the DLC unlocked, nothing pops up😕, I have tried reinstalling it. Any fix?

  99. i have legal sims 4 from steam and the gallery works perfectly fine until today. when i launch the game it has gallerys and stuffs but after a few seconds the gallery isn’t available. any fix?

  100. I have the legal base game and believe that I have followed all instructions for adding the dlcs. When I start the game through origin it says that I own all dlcs but when I start a new game none of the dlc content shows up. Please help! Thank you in advance!

  101. Hi, I currently have the base game and all the dlc pirated (through your torrents). I want to buy the base game so I can have the gallery. I have a few questions about that.
    Firstly, what’s the best way to do it? Uninstall everything and then reinstall it after I have the legit base game?
    Second, will i still have my save games after I uninstall everything? How can I ensure it?
    Lastly, when I have the gallery, can I only download base game only builds or will I be able to download everything?
    Thank you so much! You are amazing, you do great work!

    1. 1. When you have the legal base game installed copy the DLC’s from your pirated game to the legal one (see the Pack System0
      2. Yes you still have all your sims, houses etc./
      3. You have access to the full and complete Gallery

  102. Is there a way to download DLCs and adding them to legit base game on Macs? Would much appreciate some instructions if so!! <3

  103. Hello, I dont have a legit base game installed but I’m planning to buy it on steam, do I have to redownload all the extra DLC packs or can i Drag and drop them (from my current sims 4 gamefiles) after using the EA dlc unlocker?

    1. After you updated your legal game via Steam or Origin and applied the DLC unlocker you cn drag and drop the DLKC’s from your illegal game to the legal version.

  104. hello, I’m kinda stuck cause i cant seem to extract the winrar file for both anadius and EA dlc unlocker after I downloaded it without getting an error notice such as ‘no archieve found’. How do i fix this?

    1. When you get that error your download was not fully completed of you did not use Winrar. (right-click on the downloaded .rar file and select extract)

  105. Ok, when I go into the Sims and to my packs it shows that I have the packs, but in red it says that I don’t have ‘Minimum System Requirements’ for the same. I own The Sims 4 base game but the problem seems to be that I don’t have the updates, but I used the Updater. What to do?

  106. hi, i need a little help. i have extracted all files and when i ran the game they have come up as owned ( which is brilliant) but i seem to have lost all saved data, i have no families or anything now. is there a way i can recover my saved games. i have a legit base game. i tried to use the updater but it didnt work (came up as ‘download to play’) so i deleted the base game and redownloaded through origin and did the winRAR extraction into my instillation folder. any help is appreciated. thank you

    1. When you delete the base game incl. all bonuses you’ve lost your game details.
      Have a look in the folder C:\Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 4 and examine the folders Saves and Tray.
      Also look at the waste basket, maybe they are still there.

  107. Is this metode safe? I owned the sims 4 legal game and I dont won’t in the future have problems with my origin account. Is it safe to put my households and buildings to the gallery or just stay anonymous and download from anather players?
    I used to use method with remid cookie, but now I have problem with “network error” when I want to log in and have access to the gallery.

  108. Excuse for being such an idiot, but how do I extract the DLCs?
    I do steps 1 and 2 but after that, I don’t know how to continue.

  109. Hi, I’ve downloaded all the packs individually and placed them in the installation folder after extracting them. I open up my game and it says I own all the packs but when I go to play the game none of the worlds or items show up from any of the packs except for the packs I’ve bought legitimately.
    How do I fix this?

  110. Hi! So I’m having a problem with trying to install cats and dogs. I did everything as instructed but as everything was downloading at around 4gb I got this error: “sims 4 updater 0.5.4 url for d-ep04__3”. It told me to try again so I did, same thing happened. I even deleted my game via origin and re-downloaded it and started the process all over again including uninstalling the origin unlocker and then reinstalling it. Still gave me the same error so I tried installing one pack at a time. I tried get to work and once it’s finished I launched my game and it worked perfectly fine and gave me the little box with the brief description of the pack. I checked my owned packs and it said that I have get to work. I checked CAS and all the content was there. So far that’s the only pack that I’ve been installed right now that has this error and I’m not sure how to fix it. I tried looking in these comments and on forums for help but I haven’t seen anyone mention this specific error message. I’m unsure if I’ll be able to download that pack via the updater. If not it’s fine I can just do it manually since it’s only one pack but if anyone has an answer I’d rather do it via the updater.

    1. I presume you play with a legal game and Origin updated it to version 1.81.762.1030. and you have the DLC unlocker installed.
      Simply download EP04, extract with Winrar and copy the folder EP04 to the installation folder of your legal game.

  111. Hello, I cant access the gallery after downloading the dlc’s… do i have to live with this or can i fix it somehow?

    1. When you have exactly done what was described then – of course – you can access the gallery, simply because you are playing from your legal account.
      Login to your legal Origin account, go to my game library, rightclick on the picture for The Sims 4 and select repair.

  112. I have a legit base game and my DLCs are cracked. Do I need to update the game on origin or use the DLC unlocker to update the game to the newest version?

  113. hi so i did everything and now i have the dlcs downloaded but now the game keeps telling me that my mods are disabled and its showing that i have no mods and cc in the game despite not deleting all of my mods. what should i do?

  114. Hi,
    I try to run setup as administrator, I get the popup asking if I want to allow the app to make changes, I say yes then nothing happens.

    How do I move forward?

  115. Hi, so I think I need to repair my game, because it won’t play anymore. Wanted to know if the process where they are gonna try to verify game files, will something go wrong?

    Also if you have a suggestion to why the game won’t open/play anymore, let me know.

    1. 95% of all problems are caused by faulty mods/scripts/cc

      About repair:
      1. let Origin repair your game. It will check the folders Install, Data, Delta, Game, Support
      when that’s done
      2. Run the Anadius Updater to check the contents of the DLC’s (answer the question about legit game in that folder, with Yes.

  116. Hi! Thanks so much for this. I’m having trouble. I used the Anadius Updater to download 28GB worth of packs. They all show as “Download to Use” in the game. I’ve followed the steps above multiple times, but the pack folders don’t appear like they’re supposed to in the installation folder. Am I missing anything?

    1. Run the DLC-Unlocker again ad Administrator, type 5 to undo earlier installation of the unlocker, then type q
      Now run it again and type the sequence 1, 2, 12, Q

  117. Hi! I used this steps and everything worked perfectly. I dowloaded some DLC’s and there wasn’t any problem at all, and i played the whole week. But today, as i was playing the game lagged a bit so i decided to save and left. Hours after i started the game and wanted to keep playing my save file, it says that i have 4 DLC’s who doesn’t work. Even so, it says i own them. I got out the game, i enter thrice and still says the same. Then i went to see the files and what i found it’s that the updater has some files who doesn’t work. When i see the DLC files, it shows the red x’s at the side to those DLC’s.

    I wanna ask, do you have any idea of why this happened? or how can i fix it? I tried to download the dlc’s again with the updater but those doesn’t show again, and i don’t want to lose my sims! Thanks for anything in advance.

          1. Okay, but, i don’t know why those DLC’s doesn’t work anymore. Plus, my Sims 4 folder also seems to have issues, a lot of files are showing the x’s dots at the side. Do you think that i should delete my folder and updates and download everything again?

  118. Hey, so I did everything as instructed and it works in the game, however the only issue is the new neighborhoods except Granite Falls are just entirely missing. Strangerville for ex is not there, not even just greyed out. You know what could’ve gone wrong? It says “owned” for every single pack :/

    1. Just noticed, 90% of items aren’t even usable / placeable / have missing textures / blueprint strings etc… What is going on? Pretty sure I did everything correctly.

      1. Looks like a problem with mods/scripts/cc.
        Temporarily MOVE (not copy) your The Sims 4 folder from C:\Documents\Electronic Arts to your desktop, play the game again
        Now your game is brand new as if you just bought it.
        Performing OK now, then the problem is in your mods folder. Copy the folders Tray and Saves back from the folder on your desktop

        1. Hey, thanks for replying. So the issue most likely was some corrupt files. I downloaded the DLC’s seperately one by one and replaced the ones I had from the anadius updater. Now 90% of items, interactions etc. work with some items sadly still missing footprint resources. So seems like some meshes somehow are still missing, idk why. But at least I can use almost everything the content has to offer, that is fine enough for me with such a mesed up game from so many mods anyways lol. Just cba to sort stuff nor would I know which mod does what, other than the obvious named script mods.

          1. For anyone that got the same issue, I figured it out. Due to more or less corrupted DL files caused by a big amount of DLC’s downloaded at once and some errors in the process, in the EP’s, GP’s and SP’s you have to look into each of the DLC folders (inside of Origin Games/The Sims 4) and extract the zip file called “ClientFullBuild0” right in the subfolder of the EP/GP/SP where the file is located in and delete the zip file afterwards. Depending on which DLC it is, the zip file includes the new worlds and other meshes you might be missing.

    2. Have you added the DLC’s for those worlds ?
      Did you successfully run the DLC Unlocker ?
      Are you playing the game via your legal Origin account ? (shortcut from C:\Program Files (x86)\Origin Games\The Sims 4\Game\Bin\TS4_x64

  119. Every time I get to the end of the Updater download, I get an error message that says, Download failed for some files, check your internet connection and TRY AGAIN. Nothing is wrong with my internet. Why does this keep happening?

  120. I really need clarification. I open the game and their, all the DLC is their. I hover over it and it says “Donwload to use”. I didn’t put the DLC in the right place. I know this. Where exactly do they go? For example, for EP01, it is a folder. I open it and their are many of the plane white paper icons. Their is also another folder labeled “Worlds” and then, “Areas”. Do I take each individual paper icon and move them all directly into the (C:) > Program Files (x86) > Origin Games > The Sims 4 ??? So then many of those white paper icons now appear in this folder? Or do I keep everything in the Delta folder that appears in (C:) > Program Files (x86) > Origin Games > The Sims 4 folder?

    I hate to run the updater again because it takes hours and the last time I tried, as it was about to end, I got an error message saying it couldn’t complete due to internet connection or something of the sort…. when nothing is wrong with my internet. I wish someone could show me a picture as to how exactly everything is supposed to appear in each folder in order for the DLC’s to work and show up in game.

    1. Download the DLC’s and put the (extracted) folders in your installation folder, probably C:\Program Files (x86) – Origin Games – The Sims 4
      Clear the DLC Unlocker by typing 5 (Remove old details) and q (quit)
      Re-run the Unlocker and type 1,2,12 and q

      Read the Troubleshooting “Game not owned”or “Download to use” on THIS PAGE

  121. Excuse me, but I have been getting problems.
    The textures of the pack (as well as certain icons) have been missing or corrupted. If I try to create a Sim with a characteristic of the DLCs, let it be a piece of clothing or a cat, won’t appear or cover the sim’s body in red and black squares with question marks.

      1. I have checked and some mods were active, I had them removed and the problem has been solved. Thanks Tarac.

    1. Your anti-virus “sees” the crack (no-origin-fix) as a virus . The crack however is 100% harmless. This is what they call a false-positive warning.
      You can solve this problem easily:
      a. temporarily turn your anti-virus off when using the updater for adding DLC’s
      or
      b. Add DLC’s manually by downloading the packs via torrents where you can select the DLC’s you want. This method does not contain cracks.

  122. Do I need to download to packs separately and then add them via the updater or can I go from having no packs of any sort cracked or otherwise to having all the packs available through the updater?

  123. Where in the Sims 4 folder should we put our cc/mods in?? I can’t seem to find a mods folder in the Sims 4 folder. Is it supposed to go in the data folder?

  124. i have a issue, no mods installed, i have the legit base game, with dlc pirated, first issue is that all cities are not showing, only about 10 are, and secondly i cant left click on a sim for options, i can select the sim and select say a chair to sit but cant bring up the sim radial menu., i have tried reinstalling both base game and dlcs but same issue.

  125. In game, it says that I own the packs but how do I know if they’re downloading or how to download them??

    1. As soon as you apply the DLC unlocker all DLC’s will show up as download to use.
      When you add folders of DLC’s to your legal installation folder they will show up as Owned
      You can download EP’s, FP’s, GP’s and SP’s either by direct downloads or via torrents or via the most simple way by running the Anadius Updater

  126. I put all the DLCs in the legal Sims 4 folder but now when I open my game, the sims have question marks on them and the traits don’t work.
    Anyone experiencing the same thing!?

      1. I did not find the solution for this yet 🙁

        Tarac we need help!!! The game launches completely fine and the DLCs are all in the main Sims 4 folder, but everything included in any of the packs do not work. They show up but don’t load correctly or work. The sims end up having red and white question marks on them and there are nothing in any of the worlds. In which specific folder am I supposed to put all the DLCs??

        1. The DLC folders must be copied to the root directory of your installation folder so where you also find __Install, Data, Delta
          Mods/CC cause 95% of all problems

      2. I solved the problem! I uninstalled the Sims 4 base game. The problem I did was I didn’t extract the DLC download to the Sims 4 legal folder. Before you extract, don’t forget to do the EA DLC Unlocker v2. *Remember to open in administrator by right clicking

  127. Hi Tarac, I’d like to know if I installed my Sims4 in D:/Programfiles(x84)/OriginGames/TheSims4, what should I do for Step 1?
    //////////////////////
    The setup file says:
    You put the Unlocker in a path that will break the setup script. Move it somewhere else, for example “C:\unlocker” or “D:\unlocker”.
    ///////////////////////
    Is it that I must download the game on the Origin preset? Or other places?

  128. Hi there Attack, thank you for the dlcs but on my game it keeps on telling me I have the dlcs but I have to download them. I tried updating my Sims 4 game through Origin and ask tried to repair it, but nothing works, it still shows that the pack needs to be downloaded. Could you please help?

    1. Updating via Origin doesn’t help in this case.
      When you have added SP24 and SP26 in the correct manner and in the correct main folder of your install-folder.
      I suggest that you run the DLC unlocker as an administrator, type 5 (uninstall EA DLC Unlocker) probably you get an error, repeat 5 again.
      Then 1 and 2, 12 for the Sims 4 and q

  129. I followed all the steps precisely to the end. First time and it work 100%. Now I can also see my hours played and have access to the gallery.

    I use to download the iso file but a the end it worked out cheaper to use
    the Anadius Updater.

    1. PS! I forgot, thank you for your time and effort making this possible for us poor folks to also have fun.

  130. Hello, I’m downloading dlc to a legitimate game, and it takes a lot of time to get 1.8 gigabytes. How can I download the iso file? (File location, etc.)

    1. Add missing DLC’s to your legal game with the Anadius Updater. When prompted about legit game tick Yes.
      When update has finished run step 1 again

      1. I don’t buy DLC packs, but I only have Sims.
        It’s about ‘folder’. Do I not have to press ok and receive large files?

        1. all DLC’s can be obtained for free. Yes some DLC’s can be pretty large.
          When you have at least a legal base game of the Sims 4, first update via Origin (don’t buy DLC’s) then run the Anadius Updater

  131. I cant even get passed step 1 whenever i open setup it just keeps saying “you put the unlocker in a path that will break setup script. Move it somewhere else for example c:/unlocker or d:/unlocker press any key to continue…” and then exiting when i press a key

  132. Im having trouble with the cottage living pack, i added the folder but its saying download to use, every other pack is working except this one.

  133. Hi, I wanted to know how would we go about uninstalling/deleting a dlc from the game? Do we just delete the dlc we downloaded, would that be ok?

  134. I have tried everything I can think of. I used to use the older method, updating with the updater, but decided to switch to the pach method since that’s what was suggested. I removed everything just to start from scratch and downloaded the most recent Sims and update from Origin (I have the legit base game). I then downloaded the all in one for all the DLCs (though I do have some legit). No matter how many times I recopy and move the downloaded DLC and run the unlocker, it will not register the DLCs. I’ve tried restarting again from scratch, repairing the game via Origin, moving the DLCs out and back in again, running the unlocker each time, and no matter what I do, though the DLCs show up in the Sims folder as they should (not with an additional folder inside it or anything like that) they still say “not owned” when loading the game. I’m just out of things to try.

    1. Run the Anadius Updater.
      Browse to the legal folder
      When prompted about legit game, click Yes
      When finished run the unlocker again

    2. I just tried something:
      1. Deleted my complete legal installation-folder for the Sims 4
      2. Logged in to Origin and re-downloaded the legal base game
      3. closed Origin
      4. Ran the Anadius Updater – legit game Yes – selected all DLC’s except Legacy Edition
      5. Ran the game – all DLC showed up but as not owned
      6. Started the Unlocker and selected option 5 (remove old details)
      7. Then chose options 1, 2 and q
      8. Ran the sims 4 and all DLC’s now showed up as in possession

      This way I’m sure now that all files and folders are installed in the correct manner and all possible faults are removed.
      Maybe it’s just enough to perform items 6 and 7 above to cure your problem.

      1. Hey before I do all of this, can I use my original legit account, or do I need to still use my fake account? I followed the steps that brought me to the error page in the browser that then prompted me to enter the cookie code thing. I wondered if this matters or not.

  135. SP 08, Sp10, SP11, SP12, and GP10 all say “The archive is password protected!’ when i try to extract them using WInRare+

  136. Hi there Tarac!

    The packs in my game aren’t registering.

    I have the legal Base game. I downloaded the Packs I want.

    I installed the Unlocker. Did 1, 2, 12, q.

    I do not get the “Download to use as you did” in the game.
    I pasted the packs into my game folder aswell,they are not registering…

    My Sims 4 game runs through Steam.

    If you could help that would be great. Thank you.

    1. Ok I’ve fixed it thank you. The problem was that I had EA Desktop installed on my pc aswell. I uninstalled it. Ran the Unlocker process again. Ran the game and Voila! Thank you!!
      EA ARE BLOODSUCKING LEECHES.

  137. my problem is that i dont know how to install the sims 4 cracked bc i need them to copy the expansions

    srry 4 my english

  138. Hi, I’m kinda confused on updating the game. The article says to turn on “Automatic game updates” and “automatically update origin” and says that “now your game and origin update whenever you start Sims 4.# Does that mean I don’t have to do anything when it comes to update or am I to download and use Anadius Updated? And if so, should I cancel the task when origin trys to update game?

    1. For updates: Origin automatically does that for you.
      New DLC’s: you only have to download the DLC folder for that new expansion.
      Don’t cancel the task when Origin is updating.

        1. Origin only updates the folders __Install, Data, Delta, Game, Support
          It won’t interfere with the pirated items, reason why you have to add new DLC folders manually.

  139. HUGE thanks for sharing all of these packs!!
    I am only having one problem. I can’t download anything from the gallery. I’m getting the error: “Cannot save content because it was created with a newer version of the game. Restart your game to check for updates.” I’ve just updated my game, so I don’t see what the problem is. Can you help?

  140. Super dumb question, but is this method safe if I’m online / use Gallery via Origin? Can EA detect the cracked DLCs and suspend my account?

    It’s an awesome feature! Thanks for your hard work!

  141. i had the game working fine and had all the dlc and now suddenly its download to use and I’ve do the copy and paste again just incase

  142. the game runs perfectly! Thank you so much for the effort! I just wanted to ask if it is safe to share my own building or families on the gallery or if its better not to because not all the EP are original. Just want to be sure <3 thanks in advance 🙂 (sorry for eventual grammatical mistakes but english is not my first language)

  143. For some reason when loading the DLC packs into the game, it glitches out and doesn’t register everything in the packs. I have no mods or anything, I’ve just been using the pack system. Not sure if the texture scripts got ruined or something else. Is there a way to fix this?

    1. No idea what the reason could be. On my PC the pack system runs without any glitches and it registers all packs.
      Re-run the DLC-unlocker after you added new DLC’s

  144. Follow up,

    I believe I did something wrong when adding the DLC packs. Some of the items from the packs don’t load properly

  145. I was able to get all the packs to work successfully, but when I get to creating a character, all the designs don’t load properly and it just doesn’t looks right. Is there a way to fix this?

    1. Are you using mods/cc ?
      When yes, move (not copy) the folder Mods from C:\Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 4 temporarily to your desktop

      1. No, I’m not using mods, just the legal game and downloading the DLC packs. Not sure if I did something wrong

      2. No, I’m not using mods, I’ve just been using the DLC’s and adding them to my legal game via the pack system. Not sure if I did something wrong.

  146. Follow up, I noticed that the folders were missing most of their files but I re-downloaded them and found the files. I re-extracted the missing files and it worked.

  147. Hi,
    I completed step 1 and then downloaded each of these packs and added them to my sims install folder.
    I installed EPs 01, 02, 03 and 05 onwards (I already owned 04).
    Most of them are showing as owned but Island Living and Get Together show as “Download to use”, yet EP’s 01 through 11 are all accounted for in my folder.

    1. For those EP’s showing Download to use, open the folder and maybe it contains another folder with the same name inside. That should be the folder to use

  148. so i downloaded all the stuff and did all the steps but every time i try to run the game it gives an error message that says unable to start, some files are damaged or missing.

  149. I’ve downloaded everything and it seems to be working but some packs are not downloaded and I don’t really know what to do. It shows in the game that I have them but they are not downloaded. Anyone had this problem?

    1. Did you successfully perform step 1 ?
      In your installation folder do you see the DLC’s as folders ?
      full set of folders
      This is how your install folder must look like.

  150. Hi I die all the steps and everything works up until I open the game and it says to download so i carried on with your video but I can’t find the “illegal” sims 4 document 🤦‍♀️

    1. Did you play the “illegal” game before ?
      Do you still have a shortcut to your illegal game ? When yes, right-click on it and select Open file location. You then are in your illegal game folder Game\Bin

  151. i did everything according to the description. but the DLCs stil appear unowned and not in my game. Anadius Updater also doesnt fix the issue. Origin doesnt update. i am on an 64 bit PC so it should work ?

  152. hi, what can i do if my CAS is still broken even though i moved the folder C:\Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 4 temporarily to my desktop?

      1. i disabled cc and script mods, but some clothes stil lappear broken. anything else i can do? sorry for bothering.

  153. Hi, so sorry to bother; I believe I did everything correctly because the game with all DLC’s installed is working perfectly! However, I can no longer place doors in buildmode and a pop-up saying “script error” appears whenever I try to. I figured it may be that my computer didn’t fully download one of the packs, but I thought I’d ask before I dig around in stuff I don’t fully understand yet. Thank you so much for your website!

  154. hi, i have another problem, my game recognises all the packs but when i’m in CAS some clothes from some of the packs are either broken or appear with the red/white question mark thing. i disabled cc, repaired the game on origin, moved my mods folder to desktop but it’s still broken, what can i do?

    1. Thank you for your help. i really appreciate you replying. I am confused! lol… I thought I had to make a mod folder in (x86) location?….so I keep my dl stuff in the mod folder like I used to for my original base game ?….. this game will open for me in EA, is that normal ? if i open SIms 4 with Origin, it doesn’t give me all the DLC, and when I go to Gallery now and try and save/dl content, i get this error message “Cannot save content because it was created with a newer version of the game. Restart your game to check for updates.”

      1. Apparently your game is not fully updated (cracked version).
        Either update or remove the file GameVersion from C:\Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 4

          1. My game only opens through EA, is that normal ? If i open through Origin, none of the DLCs are available.

          2. Yes that’s normal, it opens via Origin. When you don’t see pirated DLC’s you have not performed step 1 correctly.

          3. EA Beta is what my game opens through

            I’m thinking that maybe folders or game components are not in the right location etc

  155. I originally purchases Sims 4 through Steam, so I have no C:\Program Files (x86)\Origin Games\The Sims 4. Like when I try to go that pathway and open Origin Games, there is simply nothing inside. And then when I did a browse local files in the settings on Steam, instead the game plays through C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\The Sims 4. The DLCs I’ve purchased are in there, but when I followed all the steps, downloaded the ones I wanted through the method above, extracted the files, copied the folders into there, and launched the game through that shortcut, they do not show up. I restarted my PC and still no. How do I get them to play? Is this method only for Origin? Then how would I transfer my Steam game files to Origin?

    1. Sims All Around wrote:

      Hi! I use the Steam version, too!

      Putting the packs in the Documents folder won’t do anything; you need to go to the Sims 4 in Steam’s Programs File and drop them all there. (For example, C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\The Sims 4) Worked completely for me! (Make sure it’s only, like, the EPs or the FP, GP, SP. Don’t move a cracked Game Folder or anything or it’s liable to break.)

      1. Thanks! I figured it out, it was a problem with the DLC Unlocker. Followed all the other steps perfectly, thanks for such a detailed walkthrough!

  156. Hey Tarac,

    After step 1, when I try to start the sims 4, it says that the EA unlocker didn’t unlock any packs and that I have to run the setup of the unlocker. But I did that multiple times and it doesn’t work. It does work on the administator account. What should I do?

      1. I did that, then I needed to fill in the administrator password, followed step 1, everything looked liked it worked but when I tried to start the sims it said: No game configs found, the unlocker won’t unlock any DLC’s. Run the setup script and add some game configs.

        1. When you right-click on setup to open as Administrator and typed 1 for the Install EA DLC Unlocker you should see in green

          Configs folder created
          Main config copied
          DLL added

          and in yellow: Origin detected.

          As long as you don’t see that there is something wrong with the Administrator status.

          1. Okay, now I know there must be something wrong with the administrator status. I’m gonna try to find out what. Thank you.

  157. Hi, I have another question, I installed everything just ok but I can´t start the game from the icon nor the original installation folder which sometimes happens on my pc for some reason and in that case I usually go to origin and play the game from there so I wanted to know if it´s save to log into my origin and start the game from there?

  158. Hi, I have a problem with the EA DLC Unlocker v2. file. When I install it it installs as single file and nit yipped on so I can´t extract it or perdorm any of the other steps. i don´t know what to do

  159. Hey Tarac I wanted to ask one more question. If I download the sims 3 all in one from your site and if I add the packs of the all in one version to my legal sims 3 game and I do the steps also with the ea dlc unlocker. Can I do that?

    1. Yes that should work.
      But EP09 contains a crack so I fear you need the original TS3EP09 in EP09\Game\Bin to fully function.
      You try it out and let me know, if required I can supply the original TS3ep09

  160. It worked as in the packs do say owned but all the CAS items are broken and some of the worlds are missing. Also how do I added mods and such now?

    1. As to downloading mods put the extracted file in this tray: Documents-Electronic Arts-The sims 4-mods. Also, don’t forget to enable script file as well as mods/cc in the game’s settings, don’t bury script file mods(only one folder deep), and try to make up for the lack of CAS items until you get help from someone or figure this out on your own. I personally have problems with EP5 (which is also my favorite) and I want to know weather or not I’m the only one.

  161. So, I did all these steps multiple times, but it’s just showing me that I need to download the files.. I really don’t know what is going wrong with these files…

    I downloaded the torrent, zipped the files, and put the unzipped files in my directory (not the default one as I have all my games on another SSD drive).

    I also used the DLC unlocker twice. But it just isn’t working. And yes, I followed all the steps and closed the unlocker by using Q.

    Did anyone find a solution to this problem?

  162. ive done all your steps needed but when i open my game it says i have the backs but still says download to use and i dont know what to do…

    1. Make sure you copy the packs to the Sims 4 installation folder where you also see folders like __Install, Data, Delta ….
      By default C:\Program Files (x86)\Origin Games\The Sims 4

      1. Origin games folder is empty for me for some reason, have a few games that are definitely installed though

  163. alright, so i performed step 1, then i extracted the files from the torrent to my sims 4 folder on steam. doesnt seem to work. what’s this about mounting the iso? is it necessary?

  164. I did all the steps by downloading my preferred packs using bittorrent then added the extracted just the EP01 file and nothing else into my legit game file ran it online via origin and it just loaded indefinitely

  165. I did the third step because i already have the base legit game, i did everything i was supposed to, but it doesnt work. it doesnt even say that i own them, it’s like i did nothing. How can i get it to work? I dont understand what i did wrong

  166. just wondering, what happened to the mega download file?
    i found that to be the easiest way of downloading n its not there anymore!

  167. If I’ve already downloaded all the packs via the other method excluding origin can I still reinstall origin and add them to my legitimate game?

  168. I downloaded the DLCs and it says that I have them but when I open the game, it says Download to Use. Then, I go to origin to download them, but it does not let me because I would technically have to purchase them. So how exactly do I download the DLCs into the game?

    1. When you used the torrent for TS4 packs selective:
      Did you extract the DLC’s with Winrar before placing them in your installation folder ?

      When you used the torrent for TS4 all-in-one 1.77.146.1030 for pack method:
      Did you mount the downloaded iso ?

      1. I have the exact same as the comment from Anonymous.

        “I downloaded the DLCs and it says that I have them but when I open the game, it says Download to Use. Then, I go to origin to download them, but it does not let me because I would technically have to purchase them. So how exactly do I download the DLCs into the game?”

        I did step 1 and then went to step 3, extracted with winrar before placing them in my installation folder. I repaired my sims, I restared my pc. But nothing seems to work.

        1. In Step 1, items 4, 5, 6 and 7 are very important, don’t skip any of these. If f.e. you skipped item 6 you have not activated the pack system for The Sims 4 or when you did not finish with Q your settings are not saved.
          And yes, you cannot download from Origin unless you buy the expansions.

          I have done it now quite a number of times and it works perfectly. If you still have problems re-read the instructions.
          IF you are using EA Desktop instead of Origin the unlocker will detect EA Desktop.

  169. does this work with ea play? also i do not have any cracked dlc so do i just ignore step 2 and just put all the downloaded dlc from the torrent in?

  170. Hello, I did the first step but I don’t know what the tutorial is saying in the second step, which files I need to put in the folder?
    Anyway I ignored that passage and tried to start the game from origin and the dlcs were there but the last expansion and, I believe, the last game pack refused to install, plus textures were missing from items of the get to work expansion and maybe some others, I had other cracked versions of the sims 4 on this pc maybe some file is causing problems or maybe I ruined my game ignoring the second step, thanks in advance for any help

    1. Most probably you have a folder already for your cracked games.
      Just copy the EP’s, FP, GP’s and SP’s from that folder to your legal folder (C:|Program Files (x86)\Origin Games\The Sims 4)

      If you do not have a separate folder for your cracked game you can download the EP’s, GP’s etc. from THIS PAGE, step 3
      You can’t download new EP’s and such from Origin unless you buy them.

      About missing items: Move, not copy, the folder Mods from c:\Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 4 temporarily to your desktop and try the game again.

  171. hi so i followed the steps to download dlc to base game and it says i have all the packs but they are waiting to download but they arent

    1. That’s correct as the Game folder is updated to the latest version incl. all DLC’s.
      You must however still, manually, install the DLC’s

      1. Hi. So I have the same issuse as the other person who said “i followed the steps to download dlc to base game and it says i have all the packs but they are waiting to download but they arent”. What exactly do you mean when you say I have to download them manually? Thanks so much for everything btw:)

  172. hi, i downloaded cottage living and put it in, but when i try to cook things it says there is no available oven/stove when i tried to get my sim to cook by clicking on the refrigerator (all of the food options greyed out). i thought it might be cc but nothing changed when i disabled cc. i also repaired my game which didn’t do anything either. when i removed cottage living i was able to use stoves/ovens again. did i install it wrong? i have a legit game on origin and some legit dlcs as well.

  173. I followed steps 1-5 of ‘Add new DLC’s to your legal base game (Mac version)’ and seem to be stuck at being offline and hovering with mouse over the pictures showing Download to play.

    How do I download them if I’m offline? When I go online says I need to buy them.

    Sorry if I’ve missed a step I’m new to this.

    1. As the DLC’s have no .exe files you can download the DLC via THIS PAGE step 3
      When you added DLC’s I presume you must Run “add fake entitlements.command” and do what it says.

  174. Dangit, went through the steps then realized although I have the true game it’s from a different Origin account. RIP origin being useful I guess. 🙄

    1. A what you call “true game” will remain a “true game” irrespectively. The only thing that differs is the installation path

  175. Thank you for posting this! I’m really glad it also works if you buy the base game on Steam.

  176. Hello. I’ve managed to transfer all my game files to the Sims 4 but it’s telling me I still need to download the packs to use. How do I bypass this?

    1. If it helps, if I try to open the DLC toggler, I get an error message saying “Could not read crack config file.” Does this mean there’s a crack somewhere that I need to download for this to work?

      1. The dlc toggler cannot function in this setup as it is based on a crack in the folder Game.
        As however the Origin Game file is used here, there is no crack.

  177. Hi
    I bought Sims 4 on Steam so my installation folder doesn’t lead to C:\Program Files (x86)\Origin Games/The Sims 4. The Origin Games folder is completely empty.
    I followed the instructions on cs.rin.ru but added the extracted folders to my Documents/Electronic Art/Sims 4 folder and when I open Sims, it says that I own the packs but if I hover over the pack it says ‘download to use’.
    Is there anyone who can assist me with this please?

    1. Hi! I use the Steam version, too!

      Putting the packs in the Documents folder won’t do anything; you need to go to the Sims 4 in Steam’s Programs File and drop them all there. (For example, C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\The Sims 4) Worked completely for me! (Make sure it’s only, like, the EPs or the FP, GP, SP. Don’t move a cracked Game Folder or anything or it’s liable to break.)

  178. I used the direct install method and I first installed the expansion Get Together just to see if it worked and it did, however I installed the rest of the expansions I didn’t have and placed them in the sims 4 folder and now I don’t have any other expansion packs and my game will not function properly. All of my doors disappeared for some reason and whenever I try to put them back the game “fails to call the script” is there a way to fix this?

  179. When I opened the game it showed that I have all the packs, though in cas, some of the clothing is broken (white/red and question marks) I also repaired tha game on origin but still the same problem…

    1. The system works perfectly.
      Just to test it I did following:
      1. Deleted my The Sims 4 by deleting the folder The Sims 4 from C:\Program Files (x86)\Origin Games.
      2. Installed the base game via Origin
      3. Performed step 1 as in the instructions
      4. Copied the EP, FP, GP, SP folders from my cracked game to C:\Program Files (x86)\Origin Games/The Sims 4

      Played the game:
      I have all the worlds, no problems at all in CAS

      Additional info: I don’t use mods/scripts

      1. I still have the same problem after following all your steps. I have my mods turned off in-game. But still, there’s broken clothing in cas… What should I do at this point?

        The base game clothing is fine, though some clothing in cas from other packs are broken

  180. so what do i do if i put the packs in and they don’t work in game? i put them in program files and they refuse to work, am i missing something

    1. Let Origin repair your game
      Open your Origin account
      Select my game library
      rightclick on the picture of the Sims 4 and select Repair.

    1. Did you perhaps use any other kind of updater after you prepared the Origin game for pirated DLC’s ?
      Let Origin repair your game

    2. Let Origin repair your game.
      Log in to Origin
      Select your Game library
      Rightclick on the picture of the Sims 4 and select Repair

      1. i put the files where i was supposed to, and i hit repair but it did nothing. it still says unowned whenever i boot up the sims

  181. “Once you have used this system do not update in any other way as they overwrite your Game folder.”

    So how are we supposed to update if we need to?

    1. No, you need Origin for this method.
      Just install the packs in your folder C:\Program Files (x86)\Origin Games\The Sims 4

      1. There are folders inside The Sims 4 folder- there is a DLC folder, should i put the packs in the DLC folder or just leave it in the main The Sims 4 folder? thx

        1. Please help, i followed all the instructions but still the dlc appears as “not owned”
          What should i do
