Graphic problems

Post by hphbp on Wed 21 Nov 2012, 19:28

My game runs perfectly fine, no crashes or anything, but since i installed seasons i started getting graphical issues like when there is frost, or it rains or snows, all the land of the terrains that don't belong to a lot make white flashes constantly, and also the streets get like so stretched that they occupy the entire town and won't let me see anything. I would like to know if there is any way to fix this even though i know my graphics card is crappy (i used to have a good one but it broke). Maybe an update but i updated it although i don't really understand much about it. Also my pets look deformed but i know that can't be fixed. I tried the canUrunit and it says i'm fine to run sims 3 seasons. Here is the info on my pc:

Have you tried to drop all the graphics settings down to the lowest? and uncheck all the boxes.

Hello,

You may also need a driver update. The best way to find drivers is to go to your graphic card manufacturers' website and see if there's a new driver.
