Sims 3 Pets, all edges pixelated!!

Post by Mal0utt on Wed 13 Aug 2014, 15:20

Hi, this is my first post, but I've gotten a LOT of help from you guys, so for that, thank you.

Now, my issue. All my sims, people, dogs, horses, everyone, has this like, pixelated edges?
It's always been that way, but now it's just too much. 
What can be the problem?

Many thanks in advance.

Hi,

I am unable to see the picture.  Could you try posting the image link itself? Smile

The image can't be linked on here, seemingly. But that's the page on which the pic can be found. Smile

For now, can you please, when you're on the desktop in Windows, press the Windows key + R ? Inside the search mask, type dxdiag and press enter. Then, in the next window that comes up, look under DISPLAY. There, please look up under "Name/Chip Type" and "Manufacturer". Just post the information on here.   

We need that information to find the latest graphics driver for you. Also, please tell me whether your Windows is a 32-bit or 64-bit version. Good luck !

Name/Chip Type: Intel(R) HD Graphics.

Manufacturer: Intel Corporation

64-bit version!

I'm sorry if I got anything wrong, my computersettings are Swedish.

I'm sorry for the late reply, but I didn't really get the opportunity to help out too much on the forum, recently.


Here, you may also try this tool here, which can help you detect driver updates automatically:

http://www.intel.com/p/en_US/support/detect/graphics


See if it actually detects any updates for your Intel HD graphics. Good luck !

P.S. you should keep in mind though that these "Intel HD" graphics chips aren't designed for gaming purposes, so they are very underpowered. Playing games on computers with such graphics chips will - in the mid and long-run - cause hardware damage. Therefore, if it's possible for you, you might consider getting more superior hardware too.

Sure, "hardware is not everything", but if the hardware is too inferior, then the best tweaks aren't going to help either.


//EDIT


Often, you have these so-called "integrated graphics chips" in standard, or lower-end laptops. These laptops, then, are primarily intended for office purposes, and NOT for gaming. Hence, you wouldn't need a strong graphics card for such office laptops.

Yes, since these office laptops seem attractive to many people, in terms of their comparatively low price, they are very often bought, by many people. But what many people aren't aware of, is that these integrated chips are very inferior, for gaming stuff.

It shouldn't matter where you are from, but laptops with stronger graphics cards (suitable for gaming) are much more expensive than these standard laptops. For example, in the US, it's nearly impossible to find a laptop suitable for gaming, for under ~ $800-$900.

Hi,

Yup, I cannot emphasize more what Carlos said about integrated graphics.

The Sims 3 is processor intensive and graphically demanding - especially with multiple expansions installed.  Running this game with Onboard (Integrated) graphics has the possibility of DAMAGING your computer if you are not careful.  You want to make sure you have a dedicated graphics card.  I.e., Nvidia,  AMD,  etc.  You can do a test of your system here:  http://www.systemrequirementslab.com/cyri.  Just type in or select The Sims 3 from the drop-down menu.  Be sure to click ‘Automatic Detection’.  

Once you run that test, you'll be able to see if you really can run The Sims 3 on your laptop.
