Electronic Arts has released The Sims 4, a life simulation video game. Its first 2014 release was exclusively for Microsoft Windows users. The game may now be played on macOS, PS4, and Xbox One.
Players take on the role of a Sim character they’ve created and direct their actions and decisions in an effort to gain insight into human nature. Since its initial publication, it has enjoyed widespread acclaim.
Some gamers have complained that they got the “script call failed” error while they were playing. So, to illustrate:
A corrupted game file or a modded version of The Sims 4 is frequently the cause of the script call failed problem. The following solutions may help you deal with the issue at hand.
Method 1: Fix Broken Game Data
The Sims 4 script call failed errors can be caused by faulty game files, as previously explained. The launcher’s built-in capability for mending game files can be used to check for corrupted or missing game files and repair them.
In order to get the most out of your Steam experience with The Sims 4, you must:
Step 1: Stop playing The Sims 4 in its entirety.
Step 2: select The Sims 4 from your Steam library and right-click it. In that case, click the “Properties” button.
Step 3: In the pop-up box, pick the LOCAL FILES tab. To check the safety of your game’s files, select the option to do so in the right panel.
Step 4: Wait until the process is finished and click CLOSE.
You can do the following if you use Origin:
Step 1: The first thing you should do is launch the Origin client and navigate to the library of games you own.
Step 2: Right-click The Sims 4 and select Repair.
Step 3: after the process is finished, you can launch the game to see if the error has been fixed.
Method 2: Tweak the in Game Settings.
CC or mode corruption are also possible causes of the Sims 4 script call failure. You should try switching up your game settings to see if it helps.
Get in the habit of regularly backing up your PC, especially any game saves or mode files. If you make any mistakes during the troubleshooting, you can use the backup to retrieve your game back.
Verify that all of your modes have been brought up to date. If there are incompatible mods, you can report to the game developers and seek fixes. Try playing the game without any add-ons or patches from outside sources to see if that fixes any issues.
Method 3: Restore Original Sims 4 Data
In order to fix the script call failed issue in The Sims 4, you may also attempt resetting the game files to their original state. Here I will outline the procedure in great detail.
Step 1: To begin, launch File Explorer by pressing the Win key plus E.
Step 2: open the C:UsersusernameDocumentsElectronic Arts folder. Then, you can back up your game files by duplicating the Sims 4 folder.
Step 3: Rename the Sims 4 folder in the Documents. Start up The Sims 4 afterwards, and the game will recreate the Sims 4 folder for you.
Step 4: if everything went well, save your progress and quit the game. Then, one by one, paste each file from the renamed folder into the freshly made one.
Now you may try running The Sims 4 again to see if the problem with the script call failed issue has been fixed.
