Hey Valtam. Origin has to do with gaming. I think it is a site you can play games from. Here is a link that I found.

https://www.origin.com

Not sure what the issue is with it...But at least you have an idea what that is.

Cheers

Go to Menu, System, Install Additional Software and install Playonlinux and Wine first.
Use this video tutorial as a guide.



Search here - https://appdb.winehq.org/ for any games you want to play to see if they will run.

Hi VaredJojo,

Have you seen The Sims 3 page at WineHQ?
https://appdb.winehq.org/objectManager.php?sClass=application&iId=9732


This video

from the section:
THE GAME WORKS AMAZINGLY WELL!
looks helpful.
Note: about 3/4 through the video he mentions that a shortcut didn't work and he illustrates directly clicking on a file to run the game.

Also, there are a bunch of notes below the above mentioned section. Have a look there too.

Good luck!
~Scott
