I will see if I can find the link.

Via the Control Panel, if you go into System -> Device manager -> Display Adapters - Choose the graphics card and select properties. Then select the details tab, and in the drop down change it 'Matching Device ID' The last 4 numbers will be your card number Stick a '0x' on the front and you've got the complete id.
e.g. Mine is listed as pci/ven_1002&dev_6819, My graphics ID = 0x6819.
Also what type of card are you using? Different cards have different problems. I was sorting out a Radeon card for me and Honeywell, but an Intel card for this other girl - and there was code in the Graphics Rules card that had to change (mostly because they assumed that Intel couldn't cope with the graphics at all).
amazon wishlist because Lee said so.
I'm looking at the code and I can see a couple of places where the anti-aliasing is turned off, and not turned on again unless it conforms to certain versions.
eefje is correct, "boolProp enumerateMultisampleLevels false" does turn off your anti-alias. So changing those all to true wherever they are will force it on.
The question is whether other things are turned off as well - so it's probably a good idea to find out how it's getting there and re-routing it.
If the graphics ID fixes your problems, great. If it doesn't try eefje's suggestion. If that doesn't fix it - let me know and I'll post up an sgr with trace in it to find out what's happening. Also if you go into your logs folder of your game (that's in the My Documents/EA Games/The Sims 2/Logs/ folder) and have a look for the -config-log.txt it will tell us some useful information. If you post up that, after the trace it will tell us what's happening.
It will tell us whether it's using Hardware or software rasterization (Hardware is the good one) with "boolProp activeDeviceUseSoftwareRasterizer false" and whether "enumateMultisampleLevels" is true or false - that's at the bottom of the text file.
My guess is that your game is set to medium resolution, rather than high - so missing anti-aliasing isn't going to be your only problem.
Lee - Should I put the updated information and the original information into a tutorial so that we can stick it in the wiki and it won't get lost again?
