    Luckily I haven't had any issues with crashing but I haven't been able to install my Goth Galore Kit.

    After four days of back and forth emails and no resolution I received an email this morning.

    The link is to a YouTube video on installing Goth custom content clothing into your game. The title was I Fixed The Sims 4 Goth Galore Kit Since EA Won't. All I could do at this point was laugh. 😄

    I’m not sure I’m following. EA support gave you a link to FakeGamerGirl’s video, which has nothing to do with a technical fix of the pack?

    @simmerorigin, yes.

    ETA: Problem resolved now and code is working.

    I wonder if they Youtube searched "Sims 4 Goth Galore fix" and sent you the first video that came up.

    Bluebellflora mentioned elsewhere that there’s now a Mac section on AHQ under the EA App section, so it’s definitely coming…

    After the last three months of Origin constantly crashing and weird behavior in my game when I have it online I'm ready to give the EA App a try.

    @DaniRose2143 I’m hoping it’ll all be OK, but I can’t say I’m looking forward to it. I didn’t have time to play my game yesterday so I missed all the problems with Origin then — I can’t actually remember the last time I had any issues at all with it.

    @FreddyFox1234 I was able to play through the issue yesterday but ever since For Rent released I've had no end of issues. When I have Origin in online mode it will crash once every two or three hours, and it will always crash when I exit the game. When I have it in online mode and the creates a new townie, that townie will only have a first name. No last name in game or in CAS, but there is one in Manage Household. The list of crazy things is long. When I put it in offline mode all of that stops except the occasional crash when I exit the game, but it's not every time like it is in online mode.
  • FreddyFox1234FreddyFox1234 Posts: 503 Member
    @DaniRose2143 Ah maybe that’s why, as I usually play in offline mode and rarely for more than an hour at a time. So maybe I’ve been lucky that way :)

    When it first launched we were lucky to still have Origin. Once that notice popped up in Origin saying the EA App was coming I didn't see a single Origin update until about a week ago. After every update and pack that came out over that time my Origin and my game just kept getting more and more unstable. I haven't seen as many posts about the app being a pain in the butt lately so I'm cautiously optimistic that it will work right and be an improvement.

    @FreddyFox1234 I've switched to playing offline over the last month or so and I've had a lot less problems. Maybe once every other week I'll have Origin crash while I'm playing and get booted to the desktop but it's much more rare when I play offline.

    On AHQ in the Origin section, one Mac user seems to be saying they’ve been asked to switch to the EA App. https://answers.ea.com/t5/Origin-Mac-Client-Technical/EA-App-switch-back-to-Origin/td-p/13579148

    ETA: It’s definitely being slowly rolled out to Mac users now. I’ve come across several Mac users who say they’ve been told to make the switch.

    Hey all,

    This is a limited roll out of the EA app on Mac, only available in certain regions as of now.
    Found a Bug? Let us know here. Having a technical issue with your game? Reach out to us here. 9alz5vu73pb0.png

    I don't have it yet either, but this sounds like good news!

    Hopefully the external drive isn't a problem/will be fixed soon as I don't have space to store my games on my Mac's hard drive.

    We are thrilled to share that over the next few weeks, the EA app will officially replace Origin as our primary Mac platform. A faster, more reliable, and more streamlined experience – it’s the best place for you to experience EA’s incredible games, services and content.

    With the new streamlined design you will easily find the games and content you’re looking for and discover your new favorite games. With automatic game downloads and background updates you can ensure that your games are ready to play when you are.

    For existing Origin players, we’ve worked hard to make the transition to the EA app as simple as possible. When you get there, all your games and content, including games already installed on Origin, will be ready and waiting for you.

New players will start by downloading a new favorite game and jump into the action with our optimized experience.

    We will be inviting Origin players on supported macOS devices to make the move shortly. We look forward to welcoming you to the EA app!
