    for a few days now, I have not been able to access the gallary. It says that I have to exit the game for a madatory update. Origin is not automatically updating, nor have I found a way to manually update. What am I missing?

    I rage quit last night because I couldn’t get on the gallery no matter what I did. Origin did update yesterday but it was weird about it. I made me log in then it said I was offline so I closed it and came on here to see what was up, couldn’t find any info, went back out and re-opened Origin to try and log in again and suddenly it was updating. 🤷🏼‍♀️

    I had issues last night, haven't tried today. I could open the gallery but there was nothing in it, no builds or sims, or anything, as if no one had ever uploaded a single thing to it.

    OOOoooh I just got to test this BRB.

    Edit: Not Fair Origin.

    I moved the browser window, I started Origin, I logged in, I started Sims 4, I opened the Gallery.

    And it worked!

    And here was, I a senior citizen ex miltary man, really looking forward to another knockdown drag outside and give a kicking to someone named EA-someone too. I like getting warning emails from EA-someone.
    I usually reply with bah humbug raspberry etc. Thank your mother for the rabbits anyway.

    I had issues connecting last night, and thought it was just my internet.

    I don't know that it's down for maintenance but there are two other threads of ppl having issues with it and I am too so you aren't alone. It's been down since yesterday for me. Hopefully they will be able to fix it quickly

    Down for me first thing this morning but I was
    also up before the gurus. Hopefully they can sort it out soon.

    I am also having troubles with getting into the gallery. I am online with origin, start up the game and then the game tells me I am not connected so I can't use the gallery. And I can't go online within the game.
    I got the gallery back in after repairing my game and deleting the cache of the game and origin. I hope it will stay working now.

    It's been having issues since the whole cross platform thing came into play. For now, I've found that logging out of origin and re-logging will connect me. Hopefully they can stabilize this soon.

    Obviously this work-around won't help console simmers, I'm not sure if it's the same fate for them or not.
