{Sims 4} How To Get Rid Of “Unable To Start” And Annoying Pop-Ups ✔︎

September 11, 2019

hey guys welcome back to my channel I
apologize for not uploading like I promised I’ve just been extremely busy at school and I just don’t have much time but now
that I have two weeks off from school because of winter break I will be
uploading more content for you guys so I noticed that a lot of people have
this problem problem quite often I have been reading a ton of
comments lately and it looks like this problem is very common and I also have
this problem for a long time and boy it took me centuries to fix the
problem I’ve done a lot of research and I’ve watched a lot of videos and tutorials
and I one day I finally figured it out so today I’m going to show you how to
fix this problem so when you have this problem you would usually see unable to
start sims 4 is already running or program error and just a bunch of really
annoying pop-ups and your game just doesn’t want to open so the first option
I have is disable gatekeeper, gatekeeper is actually a
security feature that vertifies downloaded applications before allowing
them to run properly and it reduces the risk of malware but the thing is the
Sims 4 you downloaded for free on my channel is actually made by a cracked
software I think, the reason why Mac doesn’t allow apps like that is because
it’s trying to protect you from harmful viruses and malware but unfortunately
you would have to just a disable gatekeeper in order to run The Sims 4 so you’re gonna have to open terminal so
click the little thing on even though that is turn middle and when you type
that in click enter and this will pop up so you’re gonna
write sudo SP CT Oh master this able and click enter now this will show up enter
your password damnit and turn okay enter your password
again if you mess up like I did what the hell oh hold on yes you’re gonna enter your password
you’re gonna click system premise your system prefer for instance perfect
conferences perfect I hate myself okay um I mean I’ll click security and
privacy click the lock type in your password and you’ll see the option
anywhere you’re gonna click that and then yeah you should type in your
password and you should be good to go if turning off gatekeepers still doesn’t
work then I would recommend the second option what you need to do is disable
system integrity protection aka system integrity protection includes
a security technology that helps protect your Mac from malicious softwares
however like it’s completely safe to disable sip if you’re worried but if you
are a bit hesitant I would highly recommend you install malwarebytes just
to keep your computer safe so malwarebytes helps you scan anything so
like I would start a scan I would get rid of anything that slows down my
computer and it helps get rid of malware if you have an e so that’s good um how
you disable sip is there’s a lot of different steps so you’re gonna click
you’re gonna click restart right and when you click a restart
you’re gonna automatically hold down command
our command our and exit um you’re gonna hold those three keys until your
computer is done restarting then when you’re done this should show up so when
you restart you’re gonna click I mean not click you’re gonna hold down command
R and escape all through keys and then you’re gonna hold the keys until this
picture pops up and when you see this you’re going to go up to utilities
you’re gonna click terminal and you’re gonna type crystal crystal crystal
crystal sable and then press Enter or return
then close the terminal app click click the Apple site whatever click that and
then click restart so you’re gonna reboot your computer again and that’s
how you just able system integrity protection so when you type in Chris
Chris long you know what that word is disabled this should show up success
you have successfully disabled system integrity protection please restart the
machine to for the changes to take effect so yeah that’s how you disable
system integrity protection and when you don’t that you should be able to open
the Sims 4 just fine and if you are still having problems make sure you
comment down below and I will find some more research and I’ll try to help you
thank you for watching I hope you have a wonderful
de wonderful winter break whatever and yeah I’ll speak to you guys soon

    Any video suggestions/ideas? Sorry for the crappy audio, I don’t have a microphone or anything fancy. I don’t know why the music is so bad but I’ll figure it out sooner or later. ♡
