sims 3 appears darker HELP!

Post by Cerulean on Tue 18 Sep 2012, 10:56

I am currently running sims 3 with all the expansion packs from Games4theworld on Parallels on my MacBook Pro.

-World Adventure
-Ambitions
-Late Night
-Generations
-Pets
-Show Time
-Katy Perry's Sweet Treats
-Supernatural

When I start the game, the game seems to appear darker than what it looked like when I played it on a Windows OS laptop.
Is Parallels incompatible with the sims or is there a fix or anyway to get around this problem?



The 2nd screenshot is in the morning (~8am sims time) as you can see it isn't very bright.

Thanks in advance!

Hello,

What if you put all settings on "High"? And turn on things like "Smooth rendering".

I did that and restarted the sims, but it's still the same as before. The game got kinda laggy as well...

Have you tried adujusting the Screen Brightness on your Macbook?

The Following I think explains it well enough, I have no idea tho.
