What works

Everything seems to work except in-game purchases.

What does not

The current Origin version will not function in WINE.


The game requires EA Origin to run. I could not get the latest version of Origin to run so I had to install Origin Legacy. You have to set wine to run Origin Legacy under Windows XP while running the Sims game under Windows 7/8/10.

What was not tested

Everything was tested. Many game expansions were added from both DVD and the Origin store. The items from the Origin store were purchased through a browser and then the game downloaded them since it is tied to the Origin account.

Hardware tested


  • GPU: Intel
  • Driver: open source

Additional Comments

When legacy needs to be updated you have to manually uninstall it, download the new version from EA (The Legacy Installer) and then re-install it in WINE. Once the new version is installed Sims 4 will launch again.
