screen problems after computer got fixed

Post by pauuchan on Thu 26 Dec 2013, 19:08

so basically, my computer died and needed to be reformatted. when i got it back, i immediately reinstalled sims 3. everything is fine except the screen is not normal. it feels small and cramped.

here's my screen shot




i think the table / controls should be all the way to the right. the options and main menu feels cramped too. ive tweaked the screen size but it doesnt help. it doesnt interfere with the game play, no lags at all but im not comfortable and it just feels wrong.

i hope you can help me.

What exactly do you mean when you "tweaked the screen size" ?

This "problem" happens in my game if I choose a 16:9 (or similar) aspect ratio. Can you, in the in-game options menu under "Video", choose something like "1024 x 768 (4 : 3)" ? If you haven't tried that yet, that is.

If that doesn't work, then I'll have to try and look into other things. Or you may wait for the second opinion of another Helper or Mod.

i mean i tried all of the screen choices in the options menu.

you dont have to look into it anymore though. i got used to the screen now. but thank you so much!  Very Happy 

ps. ive also noticed lifesimmer's (youtube user) lets play videos have the same screen as i, so maybe its normal.
