Disabling Origin in-game is the way forward

EA_Tom over at Answers HQ has posted that Origin in-game will no longer function in Mojave. This is due to the increased functionality in the macOS System Integrity Protection.  Tom’s post is here and you should definitely go and read it – https://answers.ea.com/t5/The-Sims-Mac/Origin-In-Game-and-the-macOS-Mojave-Update/m-p/7053780#M14299

There are detailed instructions in the post on how to bypass System Integrity Protection in order to get Origin in-game to work. If you decide to do this you MUST re-enable it again immediately after closing Origin. This OS feature is an integral part of your Mac security. Disabling and re-enabling it requires restarting your Mac.

For the record, I won’t be doing this and will simply have Origin in-game disabled (as I do now). My suggestion would be not to do it either as it can seriously compromise the security of your Mac. Google disabling System Integrity Protection if you want more opinion.

macOS 10.14 Mojave – Sims 3 and Sims 4 update

I have macOS Mojave beta installed and so far Sims 3 is still loading and playable.

I did get the following dialogue box stating that the game will stop working at some point with a future version of macOS, not dissimilar to the one currently popping up in High Sierra and linking to the same Apple support page:

I also tried Sims 4 and was surprised to get a similar dialogue box. Origin and Sims 4 are already 64-bit so this message shouldn’t be popping up:

I really have no idea what software this dialogue box is referring to. If anyone has any idea please share, it would be great to know 🙂

I’ll keep testing after each build is released and report any changes here.
