Graphics problem - Texture Memory, Spots and Flickering
#1 09-01-2016 
Hello Smile

I think my game is not working correctly. I used the graphics rules maker but I don't know what ''force texture memory'' means because when I put the number that is in Device Info the game shows "Failed to find any DirectX 9.0c compatible graphics adapters in this system! Please make sure you have DirectX 9.0c Compatible graphics adapter and have installed the latest drivers provided by the manufacturer. The application will now terminate". but when I put 64mb the game plays ''normally''..

Is it right?

And I'm having trouble with my screen too, screen flickers upon mouse movement like this in the hood view (I don't tried in the lot view yet) and some hood decos are appearing spots and squares.

I have Windows 10 and Ultimate Collection by Origin and it never happened when I had Windows 8 in the same computer.

Thomas, rather than using the Graphic rules maker try reading the FAQs, especially the ones for making your own files.

Hi leefish, thanks for replying. I'll try but I don't know how to do it very well, my english is so basic. I'm afraid ..

Download Download Intel Graphic Rules

Put in Both folders:

\Program Files (x86)\Origin Games\Fun with Pets\SP9\TSData\Res\Config\
\Program Files (x86)\Origin Games\Fun with Pets\SP9\TSData\Res\CsConfig\

When you have done this, go back in your game, and check what's happening.

Then come back and let me know.

@celebkiriedhel Thank you so much for replying! Well, the scream is not flickering anymore but this hood deco still showing with spots and squares.

Please take a screenshot of your graphics settings in game. Those fields are effects, is that the only thing that flickers like that?

Some flowers and other things were flickering too but I changed the 'smooth edges' to more and now it's ok Big Grin

My settings are ok now?
I want to know too what are these black spots in the hood map? O_O

The "black spots" are the clouds. You should run at smooth edges on high to prevent the graphical glitches. That hasn't changed since Windows 7 Smile
