Testing cheats true not working: Solved

by Ami Dalsania

In The Sims 4, cheats and console commands can completely transform your life (in more ways than one) by providing you with unlimited money, additional skills, improved relationships, and a great deal more. In the event that you come across the error “Testing cheats true not working” while playing The Sims 4, the following is what you should do to fix it.

How to Fix Testing cheats true not working

The Command has a Typo

When using a console command or a cheat, you need to double check that the spelling and syntax are correct. The cheat code will not work if there is an error in the text.

Cheats are Not Enabled

Before you use any cheats, you should first make sure TestingCheats is turned on. If you don’t do this step first, your commands won’t work.

  1. Press Control + Shift + C or all of the controller’s shoulder buttons.
  2. This will open the cheats box, where you can type commands.
  3. Type testingcheats true OR testingcheats on and hit Enter.

You are Not Using the Right Mode

Some cheat codes only work in certain games. For example, if you want to use a Sims 4 building cheat, you need to go into Build mode and open the cheat dialogue box. Then, to unlock things, type bb.ignoregameplayunlocksentitlement.

Also, many cheats require you to hold down the Shift key while you click on the Sim you want to change and then do more steps. So, make sure to follow the steps exactly for the command to work the way it should.

If your Sim is sad and you want to make them happy with cheat codes, for example, you would first type testingcheats true. Then, hold down Shift and click on your Sim. Then, click Make Happy.

Try the Game without Mods

Mods can sometimes be the problem and the reason why cheats in Sims 4 won’t work. Turn off the add-ons and try out the cheats. If it works at that time, you need to find out if a mod or other custom content is to blame.

Check if the Cheat is Still Working

There are a lot of cheat codes for Sims 4, but if you still get the “Testing cheats true not working” error, check to see if the cheat is still working. As more expansions and game packs come out, there’s a small chance that the developers might disable some code, but not for the most popular ones. It could also be a glitch or bug if the cheat works but doesn’t do what it’s supposed to do in your game. Quit the game, start it up again, and try again.

These are all the things that could cause the “Testing cheats true not working” error on Sims 4.
