Okay so this game is amazing and highly addictive. You will never run out of things to do. Yeah its a pain in the butt to install but its totally worth it and I am here to help. I read through the comments before purchasing to learn how to install it. I had a lot of difficulty considering I had to read through them all comment by comment and still couldnt get it to download because some steps were left out.

So heres what I did.

1.- Download the sims from steam.
2.- Open your sims download through steam and write down your registration code.
3.- Go to https://www.thesims3.com/register.html If you dont already have one.
4. Create a login, password, username.
5. Go to https://www.thesims3.com/registeragame.html and type out the code provided from the steam download.

Heres where it gets fun.

For users who dont have an origin account you must then go to https://www.origin.com/en-us/download
Download Origin [which is basically EA'S STEAM]

While that downloads go to-

https://signin.ea.com/p/web2/create?execution=e2005779475s1&initref=https%3A%2F%2Faccounts.ea.com%3A443%2Fconnect%2Fauth%3Fredirect_uri%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Fwww.origin.com%252Foauth%252Flogin%253Flpu%253Dtrue%2526ru%253D%252Fen-us%252Fdownload%253Flogin%253DWyIiXQ%253D%253D%26locale%3Den_US%26display%3Dweb2%252Fcreate%26response_type%3Dcode%26client_id%3Dlive.origin.com#panel-splash

And creat a login.

Once logged in and Origin is completely downloaded open it up and find 'My Games' section.
So now heres where I got super confused while reading peoples comments.
You should see the sims there. Everyone here was saying to right click and choose repair but that option is not available at this point yet.
What you need to do is go into your computer and find the steamapps file.
Create a folder on your desktop and copy all of the sims files to that folder.
Once fully copied, deleted all files for the sims in the steam apps file.
Restart Origins
Once Origins is reopened go to 'My Games' once again and the sims should still be there.
You either have install the sims option or if you try to right click now you should have the repair option.
Do which ever is available.
I downloaded the sims and then repaired it and ran it perfectly well. In fact I am running it as I type this review.
I hope I didnt miss any details but if I did, feel free to add me and I can help you out.
Oh one small details is that while running the sims through Origin, it will not display on steam that you are playing it. Thats the only thing I dont like.

Again I will say this game is amazingly fun good for all gamer types and levels. Seriously recommend it.

If you think The Sims Medieval is a bad game YOU'RE SADLY MISTAKEN! It's a brilliant game taking you back to the days of old and adventure and wonder. To a time where hardwork meant something, you take on the role of a King or Queen and start building your nation from the ground up. Turning it into a wondeful Kingdom for years to come.

You can also become a great Knight, Blacksmith, Doctor, Preacher, Trader, Bared and Magician. Basically you'll have a high renown for any of these jobs you take on and help build up a great country. This is exactly the game for you espically if you love these olden times of sword fights and adventure.

I admit it, I read the negative reviews, but they were mostly concerned with the game not running on Windows 8. Since I have a Win7 machine and it looked good enough at a friend's computer I decided to give it a try despite the warnings. Since I only shelved out a couple of bucks, because of a sale I thought it was worth a try.
What I soon found out and what the reviews are also about now is that the activation code does not work because of an old, derelict DRM software that locks out legit customers who bought the game legitimately.#
Good job when the pirates can play a game that people who bought it with their own money cannot. It seems a solution is to register the game over at Origin. However I refuse to have another DRM besides Steam on my machine. What is the point buying it on Steam when you either need to register it on Origin or go down the not-so-legal alley.
STAY AWAY!!!!!!!

ORIGINAL REVIEW: 24/12/2015
As an avid Sims fan, it pains me to write a negative review of a Sims game. I'm not down-voting this game because it doesn't live up to my standards, I'm down-voting because I cannot get it to run due to my CD KEY's being invalid and this has something to do with DRM. It is a sad day when you are an avid Sim fan and cannot play one of the games you have always wanted. Steam should remove this title from the store since it no longer works.

UPDATED REVIEW: 16/04/2016
I have fixed the problem by taking Skully’s advice. I have also created a guide to help those users whom still want to play the game, but use the Steam Overlay.

GAME FIXES
So I took Skully's help and it seemed to work. Register your game on the Sims 3 site and then uninstall the game from steam. Go to origin and install it there. To use Steam overlay simply add a non-steam game as origin.exe.

!MOST SIMPLE WAY TO RUN ON WINDOWS 8 ONWARDS!

I initially couldn't get the game to run properly, and tried everything I could find on Google and nothing worked... But... I did find that if you run the TSM.exe in the game files the game will boot and run perfectly. No needing to mess around with CD codes, uninstalling and reinstalling or loading through Origin. I had this game when it first came out and I've wanted it again for a while, and I really enjoy it... So if the only thing putting you off getting this game is the fact that Windows 8 onwards doesn't agree with it, just try this, and if it doesn't work you can always get a refund... Running the .exe worked for me, and it is how I told my boyfriend to try and run it and it worked for him too. If you really want the steam overlay in game just add the .exe as a non steam game to your library.
