The Sims 3 download codes from the Humble Origin Bundle seem to not be functioning properly for many users, with EA pointing towards Humble.
Mine worked just fine.
Apparently, on the forums, users are reporting that they have yet to receive a 20-digit code for the game, and even after following the instructions, others are reporting that those codes were already used. Very weird stuff.
Mine worked... like the other comments. This is probably an exception.
works for me
i got mine. worked fine. is EA sure its not their servers? cause they have been going up and down. just checked, i got a 16 digit code and entered it through the origin software, worked just fine. "When installing The Sims 3 via Origin, you will be prompted for a 20-character activation key. This key is provided by Origin upon installation." http://support.humblebundle...
Maybe you have to register the code on the Origin website itself. At the very least, it's easier to do that than to use the one build into the app.
my issue with it is that for some reasons the Sims 3 randomly doesn't work on some windows 8 desktops... their exact explanation "we've heard it affects some users of Windows 8, we're looking into it"
Mine worked fine. Perhaps because EA's crappy origin servers were getting hammered from people trying to redeem the games.
Here, this is what I was given by an EA Representative after waiting a good hour on the live chat. http://i.imgur.com/lOqVYND....
Wow... they're so retarded sometimes.
I finally got it working at 5 am when I could actually get the redeem code window to load.
