I NEED HELP

Is there anyway to stop origin from updating mid downloading? Or is there a way to open sims 4 without opening origin? My internet is maxed out and I really want to play.

    I am assuming your OS is Windows, but you posted in the Mac section. :) However, the answer is still the same. You need to turn Automatic Updates off for both Origin and all games. Once Origin is launched, go to Application Settings. (Found under the word "Origin" at the top left hand corner if you left click on it). There you should see the option to turn off Automatic Updates for not only Origin, but all games. You uncheck the option and now you control when to update not only Origin, but your games which if you play with Mods will seriously save you a lot of headaches.
