    @TheSims @EAHelp @OriginInsider @Apple @AppleSupport for the entire process to happen. Just wondering if there was anyway to fix this problem as I believe it’s something to do with the new update for the iMac. Any help or information would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

    Hi @TheSims @EAHelp @Apple @AppleSupport just wondering if you could help me with a problem. After updating my iMac to the Catalina update I was not able to play the Sims 4 through @OriginInsider I had to put the save files in different folders which took about 10-15 minutes...

  • BluebellFlora1 BluebellFlora 🐑 (@BluebellFlora1) reported

    Fun fact: OS X Mavericks 10.9 is the only macOS that #TheSims4 or @OriginInsider has never completely broken in. Lion, Mountain Lion, Yosemite, El Capitan, Sierra, High Sierra, Mojave and Catalina have all had game breaking issues at some point 🤔 @SimGuruNick @EAHelp

  • KevinHz19 Kevin H. Hernandez (@KevinHz19) reported

    Just resolved a small concern issue related with @OriginInsider, in support chat. So that’s something related to gaming already resolved

  • Jazz109Jasmine itsjasmineelliott (@Jazz109Jasmine) reported

    @Jkitty107 @OriginInsider @EA I had to take out all my cc beds hoping there is a fix soon because this is ridiculous

  • egeek84 Emil Sayad (@egeek84) reported

    @EA @OriginInsider I love free things (who doesn’t) but I wish you guys would have just emailed a code instead of automatically applying it to our accounts. Not only do I not want the service , you scared me into thinking someone hacked my account

  • sandrafrederi14 sandra frederick (@sandrafrederi14) reported

    @OriginInsider ive not been able to login or play off line since your last update, ive done the thing with proxies everything and no joy . whats going on

  • sandrafrederi14 sandra frederick (@sandrafrederi14) reported

    @OriginInsider How can we get help login in when you require us to login to get help

  • aswin_loyolite Aswin Sankar (@aswin_loyolite) reported

    @OriginInsider not able to login currently!

  • TheLeapinLizrd Ron Nguyen (@TheLeapinLizrd) reported

    @followdusT @OriginInsider @EAHelp i even thought it's only me, or the service was down or sth, luckily i have a shortcut of the game on desktop and it still works (cant invite friends tho) but for other games in my library the app wouldnt even let me access settings or anything and it keeps loading endlessly

  • xdxxdxdxdxddxxd yeah (@xdxxdxdxdxddxxd) reported

    @followdusT @OriginInsider @EAHelp i think i've had a problem like that, you may have to just re-install the whole thing

  • Jkitty107 Jennifer Ratliff (@Jkitty107) reported

    So apparently I paid $42 for The Sims 4 University Life to crash every single time I try to load my household. COOL @OriginInsider @EA

  • PaulKirby36 TheUKDude (@PaulKirby36) reported

    @dave6018 @OriginInsider @UbisoftUplay @XboxGamePassPC Yeah I had that issue with Origin when I moved over Sims 3 to Origin, at first the game and DLC I had were all there, then stopped playing it for years and came back to find most of my DLC's were removed and told I didn't own them, even when I showed images of the keys etc ---

  • dave6018 David (@dave6018) reported

    @PaulKirby36 @OriginInsider I can't remember the last thing I bought from origin, I wanted to try the @UbisoftUplay service but it just kept taking my money and not working so I don't bother with them either , I just seem to use @XboxGamePassPC which is great value and it has the amazing outerworlds on it

  • PaulKirby36 TheUKDude (@PaulKirby36) reported

    @OriginInsider So I assume this was a gift from you, if so it would of been nice of you to say so in the email. Also your generated QR Codes for the authenticator is broken. All I get told when scanning the QR Code is the following: ⚠ Error Cannot interpret QR code.

  • pentakillnami tea @ commissions open✨ (@pentakillnami) reported

    I have had my @OriginInsider account repeatedly hacked for YEARS. they never do anything about it, I change my information a hundred times and I’m OVER YOUR SHIT SECURITY AND SERVICE.

  • Big_Country7191 James Clancy (@Big_Country7191) reported

    If you got an email saying you redeemed an @OriginInsider access membership code, it was @EA and they have added a month for free for having login verification on by 10/31. Applys/applied to all users.

  • Elrohir_Ancalin Cogito ergo Mecagoendios (@Elrohir_Ancalin) reported

    @OriginInsider Just received an email re activation of an origin access 1-month code. I have made no such purchase and my login history shows no strange entries. It seems this is an error on your side. If this is a promotional gift please DON'T DO THIS. Scared the shit out of me.

  • Sir_Paco_Taco Paco Jimenez (@Sir_Paco_Taco) reported

    @OriginInsider Origin is a steaming pile of shit. I set it to use only local saves in options and also set Share system interaction data to off. I come back to launch a game on Origin and it's asking me if I want to use cloud data. Fix this. I only want to use local saves.

  • Reebabiii ReeBabii (@Reebabiii) reported

    @TheSims @OriginInsider I don’t know what y’all called yourselves doing for the SIMS 4 university launch... but I’m more than disappointed. My computer is supported, but some of my expansion& stuff packs won’t even download now. FIX IT CHILEEEEEEE

  • allvarorg_ Álvaro (@allvarorg_) reported

    @OriginInsider has the worst app from windows 10 ever. Alot of bugs and errors. Shame on you!

  • ApolloniumTV Austin🤓 (@ApolloniumTV) reported

    @BenWalke @OriginInsider Any reason why Since the the patch I can only run the game for 10 min then it crashes...been able to play 20 hours with no issues at all doing the same things I’m doing now.

  • PBuchanPhoto Peter Buchan Photo (@PBuchanPhoto) reported

    @bookworm_simmer @EA @OriginInsider @EAHelp @TheSims Just got it too. Looks like they gave out and activated free 1 month but idiots emailed us like we did it. Checked my login history.

  • YuGoOhniShi りųǥØ (@YuGoOhniShi) reported

    @BenWalke @OriginInsider and now CRASH. Awesome... 😒

  • AbraDini99 Stephanie 💙 🦅 (@AbraDini99) reported

    @ThatStupidTaco @OriginInsider @TheSims Ugh that’s awful. I know, it was running perfectly on my old Mac with no lag or troubles at all. Now it’s pretty much useless. I don’t know why they decided to screw over their user base like this.

  • felomenalx felomenal (@felomenalx) reported

    @OriginInsider I cannot login into Origin it says > You must be online when logging in for the first time. And Online login is currently unavailable. I just bought fifa 20 yesterday and I can't even install it now... help please.

  • SaienceVanadium Saience Vanadium (@SaienceVanadium) reported

    @EA @OriginInsider come on you guys just FIX your damn shit like no one has to wait over an hour to get a password reset email. NO other platform has this problem except for you guys. @jtspiders66

  • ThatStupidTaco LtNubbins (@ThatStupidTaco) reported

    I'm so glad @OriginInsider told me to get @TheSims 4 Legacy Edition because I'm poor and can't afford a new laptop and now my #Sims4 game is broken. I deleted all my mods and cc and it's still broken. I'm so glad I spent 3 hours on my Sim yesterday and now can't play. 🙃

  • LaSingingLatinx La Kiki 🏳️‍🌈 (@LaSingingLatinx) reported

    @DreaGraf @TheSims @EA @OriginInsider @EAHelp @Apple I am so angry!!!!! I can’t play!! I open the thing and there’s error after error I also want my money back

  • AnthonyBarranco Anthony Barranco (@AnthonyBarranco) reported

    @the_greg89 @OriginInsider how does one make sense of this error lol

  • the_greg89 Phil Greg (@the_greg89) reported

    @OriginInsider So won't be able to play for the next 24 hours. Can't believe this. @EA says I've tried to install the game on more than 5 computers within 24 hour so they automatically locked my account. Nothing can be done to unlock it. I played the game on 2... thanks for the great service...

  • HauntSlider HauntSlider (@HauntSlider) reported

    @rivaLxfactor @EA @OriginInsider And now the dialog isn't working. It's set to 100 on the audio settings and all teh sxf and music works but no dialog. Did a search and found it's a common problem, verifying files now. Wow.. I should have expected it from something put out by @EA. God forbid a game runs.

  • wallowigi ルカ (@wallowigi) reported

    can’t wait until @OriginInsider ‘s technical issues are fixed so i can log in lol

  • HGCentralYT Thunder (@HGCentralYT) reported

    @spoodway @NeedforSpeed @OriginInsider @EA Its just.. insanely frustrating. I want to be able to play the game with some buds and not being able to do that right now is incredibly annoying. It seems like a lot of people are having this issue, so hopefully they fix this.

  • spoodway Joker (@spoodway) reported

    @HGCentralYT @NeedforSpeed @OriginInsider @EA That happened to me and in my case it hasn’t been fixed but I can still play the game. My problem is that I add a buy a passive perk for the m3 GTR and I always get that message, even now I haven’t been able to buy a passive perk for that car. I really hope this gets fixed soon

  • real_lethality Lethality (@real_lethality) reported

    @GrogSD @OriginInsider @EA @EAHelp @EAStarWars I got an EA Gift card added to my account. The Origin store checkout is still completely busted for my account and they keep denying it, but I have better things to do with my time than sit on the phone for hours and help them fix their system.

  • JohnHayesNews Johnathon Hayes (@JohnHayesNews) reported

    @_laurenkim @DreaGraf @TheSims @EA @OriginInsider @EAHelp @Apple Hi Lauren! Apparently they’re working on resolving this issue and it should be fixed today. You are not alone.

  • angelcastiel0 🔥 (@angelcastiel0) reported

    @OriginInsider fix your shit its been down for about 2-3 days

  • _lindsay2602 Lindsay (@_lindsay2602) reported

    @Soof_L @OriginInsider @EAHelp They will do nothing because the payment is hanging by your card provider you just have to wait for something that you paid for bad service

  • Soof_L Sophie (@Soof_L) reported

    @_lindsay2602 @OriginInsider I have the same problem @EAHelp

  • Soof_L Sophie (@Soof_L) reported

    @JoycePost01 @theLaura_x @OriginInsider @TheSims @EA My friend and I also have this problem 😔

  • JoycePost01 JOYCE AMBER |💡 (@JoycePost01) reported

    @theLaura_x @OriginInsider @TheSims @EA I have the same problem...

  • DriesLamont Dries Lamont (@DriesLamont) reported

    @EAHelp since 2 days I am unable to login to @OriginInsider - somehow the login servers are not responding. The web-app also doesn't let me login... Can't play NFS Heat, BF:V, or Fallen Order :(

  • _HuckleberryJim Jimmy Two-Times (@_HuckleberryJim) reported

    The worst mistake I’ve ever made in my entire life was buying #StarWarsJediFallenOrder on @OriginInsider instead of @steam_games . I’m convinced yall try to make playing every game as ******* difficult as possible. I’ve bought 8 games on there and not one hasn’t had issues.

  • rissyyy_19 Marissa (@rissyyy_19) reported

    @EA @TheSims @OriginInsider I was so excited to download the newest Sims University expansion pack last night, only for all of my Sims game/expansion packs to be wiped & unable to reinstall. Tried to contact customer service ALL DAY & was on hold 3+ hours. Fix this or refund me.

  • TyoftheStorm T Kardasshian ✨ (@TyoftheStorm) reported from Greenville, South Carolina

    @OriginInsider @EA all I know I somebody, better fix The University Life Expansion.... EXPEDITIOUSLY.

  • ebtokyo ebtokyo (@ebtokyo) reported from San Jose, California

  • DadadariaM dadadaria_m (@DadadariaM) reported

    @foxilityy @TheSims @OriginInsider There has been some sort of glitch. Many people have tweeted about it and I don’t think it has been fixed yet. I should get fixed soon😅

  • nikoleberryy nikle (@nikoleberryy) reported

    @TheSims @OriginInsider Y’all better fix this bc I just spent money on this damn pack I’ve been waiting for and I can’t even play it

  • C0nstantM0tion Constant Scribbles @ Back on the Star Wars kick (@C0nstantM0tion) reported

    Hey @steam_games @EAStarWars @EAHelp @OriginInsider I keep trying to launch Jedi Fallen Order from steam but despite uninstalling and reinstalling Origin AND restarting, it keeps giving me a "relaunch game to link your accounts" error.

  • No1HereDude Sir_JK (@No1HereDude) reported

    @OriginInsider I pre-ordered and pre-load the game on the 12th now the game won't even launch on Origin. I am uninstalling and reinstalling the game see if it works this time. My PC spec in not the issue i'm using i9 9900k, RTX 2080, 16GB Ram, 1tb SSD, and another 4TB storage.

  • NotDavidMoralez Albert Almond Jr (@NotDavidMoralez) reported

    @EAHelp @OriginInsider Hey, been having this "well, that didn't go as planned" error on origin. I've DM'd and still not receiving any response after 30 minutes.

  • MattArcher55 Matt Archer (@MattArcher55) reported

    @OriginInsider my origin has had this error message "Well, that didn't go as plan. Origin encountered an issue loading this page. Please try redownloading it- if that doesn't work, restart the client or try again later."

  • HybridRain Gerardo | Rooster Teeth 🐓⚡️ (@HybridRain) reported

    Dear @PlayApex @OriginInsider, please fix the invite system. I just lost the most amazing Apex game. I was about a to shoot the last bullet and a friend invite logged me out before I could win. I am done for the night.

  • _Ridley_ Ridley (@_Ridley_) reported

    @Keah_Maria @OriginInsider I'm on 7, so my fix probably won't help. Good luck. Origin sucks the fun out of everything.

  • _Ridley_ Ridley (@_Ridley_) reported

    @Keah_Maria @OriginInsider I've had that happen a bunch of times. I can't remember the fix off the top of my head rn, but I found the solution in the support forums.

  • Keah_Maria Keah Brown (@Keah_Maria) reported

    My @OriginInsider screen will not load. I can sign in and it opens but it doesn’t load so I can’t see anything but a white screenand I need it fixed before tomorrow’s Sims 4 expansion pack launches. I want to play it tomorrow but nothing is showing up & I’m getting frustrated.
