Growing Together Official Countdown Thread ( Out Now!!!)

    It’s still happening even after I was finally able to download, install and play yesterday. My installed games were all missing from the ‘Installed Games’ section of the EA App again today.

    After I tried reloading a few times, then clearing the cache and logging out and back into the EA App, which didn’t resolve the issue, I used Task Manager to close down the EA Background Service and logged out of my computer. My installed games were back after I logged back into everything. Hope that helps you guys.

    Another thing I noticed is that the EA App isn’t shown as being open on my task bar when the game is open. I think Origin use to be displayed on the taskbar with an underline to indicate that it’s open like all other software. It doesn’t even open up after I click it when the game is open.

    I had the problem of Growing Together downloading but not showing up in the game. Turns out the EA app downloaded and installed GT to the CAS Demo folder. After I copied the EP13 folder from the CAS Demo folder to the Sims 4 folder, the game recognized it and everything seems to be there.

    BTW, the EA app also seems to have installed ALL my packs to CAS Demo when I ran a repair earlier. I realize this isn't the only problem people are having with this pack, but it's taking DAYS for EA to fix this?

    Dan Bheeda woke up with this tense moodlet:

    Is he trying to tell me he isn't happy with his current lifestyle?

    I held my sim self's first family reunion event and the description said you can invite everyone on the family tree and close friends yet the invite count was still up to 15 or do those related to those invited sims come along anyway?
