Those very small square shadows...

Hey! Smile

Don't know if I'm allowed to post a new topic with only this small problem...

So, I've not been playing The Sims 2 for several weeks, and once back in my game, just noticed this (see pictures below), and I think it's not normal: there are very small square shadows under diagonal walls...

Anyone has an idea on how to fix it?

I have that on my game too - it's graphics cards drivers. Your options are

1) Rollback drivers
2) Turn off shadows
3) Put a plant there

I was wondering. Because I had just installed a new driver recently. Thank you Lee.

I came back to TS2 after a few TS4 playing sessions. *always back to good things* xD

Yeah, I get that too... I usually go with choice #3. Or, use a dark/textured carpet.

Oops, I think I did some foolishness on my laptop. lol

I wanted to rollback to an older version of my graphic card driver (to 19th Nov. 2013 or so): it worked well, but when I wanted to launch the game, I had this message:

Anyone could help me? :> Slap :>

Figured out! I just had to choose a more recent driver (July 2014) ^^'

Funnily enough, the "checkerboard"-looking shadows are still there. Doh! Too bad.

Atrocious picture, but seemingly we can't do anything, even reverting back to an older driver. So, never mind. lol Tongue

Everyone has that I thought.

Indeed. This is not a graphics issue, but one of the limitations of the game, I assume. Shadows will always be jagged.


Sorry, that is a members only option
