What works

Installation works and launch works without instant-crash when adding msvcr120.dll override (needs vcrun2013 install through winetricks to provide the necessary dll!) - however, then it instantly stops with an error box with this text: "Unable to start: Origin is currently not running. Please make sure that Origin is running before attempting ot play The Sims(TM) 4 [d3382ced:984c6a38:00000000:00000000]"

What does not

- msvcr120.dll crash which needs winetricks vcrun2013 install

- DRM doesn't work (hence game ultimately won't launch)


- msvcr120.dll crash which needs winetricks vcrun2013 install as a workaround

- no known workaround for the DRM crash

What was not tested

- anything in the actual game, since it doesn't launch

Hardware tested


  • GPU: AMD
  • Driver: open source
