Graphic Issues... I think?

Post by whitesheet on Fri 16 Nov 2012, 02:53

I've searched your forum and didn't find anything quite like this glitch or whatever I have been experiencing..



My humble abode... but not really


The city's park.


Map view.


The random log thing that appears everywhere.

I had installed Sims 3 (kind of obvious but), Late Night, Supernatural, & Generations, (the latter two from you as well as your ultimate fix) and everything was fine and dandy for months. I downloaded custom content here or there but I don't normally have more than a handful because I find it slows down the game. I then installed Ambitions, Showtime (doing the same thing as I did for the other ones) and Sunlit Tides from your website, in combo with the fix, and it worked the fine the first time I used it but then... It was shot to hell. No I tried all of my other towns, families, anything and all of them were like this. I went through the trouble of uninstalling them, tried the manual ultimate fix, along with deleting my families, my custom content and anything that I thought could be causing this. It was no good, not a single change from the mess before. FUU!
So I uninstalled the whole thing again. I downloaded Late Night and Sims 3 from your site, thinking that there might be a slight chance something is wrong with the other games - cause your expansions and fix worked so efficiently and no one else was complaining on here, I figured that HAD to be it...

Needless to say, I'm still at square one, have wasted a good amount of time, and am absolutely devastated that I have not yet played Seasons (the expansion I have been waiting FOREVER for). Help I'm seriously considering buying a new laptop, even though I dont have the money and my current one isn't even that old.

i think i know... EA really changed the basic requirements since Supernatural i think, i tasted if the game run on my PC here (Can You Run it) and Showtime it's perfect, but from Supernatural to Seasons, it needs something else on the graphic card, Vertex Shader version 2.0 at least, according with that page.

It says I passed the minimum specification required to run Seasons, so if I can run the most latest one I'd imagine I can run the rest too so, I guess we can eliminate that.. Thanks!

I had the same problem and it turned out that I needed to update my video drivers. I had to go to the site directly and download it manually, the option within device manager kept telling me it was up to date. . . it was wrong.

Hello,

The device manager isn't reliable, always go to your hardware manufacturers' website.
