Additional Comments

Runs very slowly on my system, but I think that's due to the hardware in the system, rather than Wine or the game. I have 8 GB of RAM, but a slow AMD E1-1200 that is well below the minimum specs for the Sims 4. Regardless, the game runs without crashing or glitching.

Installation took a couple of tries, but worked fine the second time.
