Jika kamu mendapatkan pesan seperti itu, artinya ada beberapa file yang salah. Pada kasus ini penyebabnya adalah isi skrip dari file default.ini yang tidak benar. Berikut solusi untuk masalah ini:


Pilihan 1

    - Windows XP atau yang lebih baru versi 32 bit: C:\Program Files\Origin Games\The Sims 4\Game\Bin.
    - Windows XP atau yang lebih baru versi 64 bit: C:\Program Files (x86)\Origin Games\The Sims 4\Game\Bin.
  2. Buka file "default.ini" menggunakan notepad, gulir ke bawah sampai menemukan tag "gameversion". Ubah angka versi tersebut ke versi yang benar.



    Cara menemukan versi The Sims 4:
    • Pergi ke Control Panel > Klik "Uninstall a Program" di bawah menu "Programs"
    • Gulir ke bawah sampai menemukan The Sims 4, lihat dan catat bagian "Version". Angka ini yang nantinya akan dimasukkan ke file default.ini menggantikan angka versi yang tidak benar.
