Help! My Sims 3 game has become all glitchy and everything has holes in it!

Here are pictures of the problem, it started after I went into control panel and clicked something to help older programs run with my Windows 8 Developer mode, since my computer always shuts down.



Thanks! P.S. I have The Sims 3 Base Game, Diesel Stuff, Supernatural, and University Life ALL from Games4theworld, and I have applied the manual update along with the newest fix.

Hello,

Try updating your graphics driver. From what I have seen, this is an issue with some ATI and AMD graphics cards. If updating alone doesn't help, try this here:
http://support.amd.com/de/kbarticles/Pages/AMDCatalyst124ahotfix.aspx

Download and install that thing.

Good luck!

My computer doesn't let me update my cards, it says 'bad request,' but I'm trying out the link right now.

My computer lists my AMD card as the 'ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4200 Series (Engineering Sample).'

Please know that I am running on Windows 8 Developer Preview, and that might be a problem.
