Do you still get the graphic card error message or did you get it only when you ran your game for the first time (it should be only the latter under normal conditions).

Did you restart your computer after doing what Shamrock told you to do?

Hi there, and welcome to the Games4theworld Forum! Smile

What expansion packs did you install? And where did you apply the #Crack from the Ultimate Fix? The blank menu and town list can be caused by an outdated crack too. Make sure to re-download the Ultimate Fix before applying it, and that you only use the #Crack folder inside (the rest of folders can be ignored).

Regarding the graphics card not being detected, it could cause a little of annoyance if it assigned the lowest graphics score to your game because of it. Your card can manage a high rating, as it's high-end.

There is a way to add your GPU to the settings, and then you can give it the highest (4) graphics score. Take a look here:
http://simswiki.info/wiki.php?title=Game_Help:Getting_new_graphics_cards_recognized_by_the_game
Before doing that, make sure to check what score the game gave your card (it's one of the first steps).

Please, let us know how it goes. Good luck! Very Happy

You're very welcome! Very Happy

Glad that the issue is solved now. I'll go ahead and close the topic then. If you ever encounter any other problems or have a question, don't doubt to open a new one. Wink
