anyone having trouble logging in to
I started with the game online but then Sims and Origin told me I was offline so I've given up for today and going to bed.
It might be a good idea to add these to your Favorites for future reference. I always assume it's their problem not mine now.

3. The Sims 4 (5 years later its decent)

Here one day, gone the next
> I had to start sims up from the desktop because I was I having trouble logging into Origin, when I finally got in it was offline and I couldn't get into my library.
Thanks for reminding me starting from the desktop is an option! TS4 loaded up a little slowly but otherwise seems to be working fine. Origin gives me an error and then claims I don't have any games (I only play the Sims). Hopefully they get it sorted out soon.
Yes, you can play offline, but I want the Gallery access.
Wonder what happened? Is Origin getting ready for a big update or something? Is the Gallery getting ready for an overhaul?
I sure hope there is an explanation for this.
thanks, Nancy, I'll see if I can get into the game. Game loaded even thou it said I don't have any games in my library, Origin says its online but can't access the gallery.
same for me.
Maybe the May Day holiday in Europe blew the servers? From the tweets at ea help, it sounds like everyone over the pond was trying to play FIFA all at once.
I finally was able to get into my game offline via Origin. (I've got the original disk...somewhere.) When I got into it, I was advised that I was playing offline and should shut down my game and try to reconnect. This was a mistake, as it took another half hour to get back in again. I told Origin to stuff it the next time the message came up, and played my game without further issues.
So frustrating - I was finally ready to move my family to the new house I'd been working on - they'd been in the old one for 16 generations. I usually bring work home and do that while I do the laundry on Sunday before I kick back and play the Sims, but I got so much done on Saturday, I figured I could have a whole day to myself (and my Sims). ::kicks EA::
I hope it means they're gearing up for a big sale, but I doubt it. The Star Wars Stuff will probably dominate for a while.
