Hello everyone! I'm having a problem with the graphics in The Sims 2 Ultimate Collection. I have Windows 10 Home 64.
I have dual GPU NVIDIA 860M and Intel Graphics 4600. I installed the Graphic Rules Maker with max resolution 1920x1080 with the texture fix (and without it) but when I load up the game and change it to 1920x1080 the game won't save the change so I have to press the win key to exit the game and when I go back it accepts it but it does not change the resolution (it just asks me if I want to save the changes and I press yes but it's still in low resolution). When I load up the game again It is in 1920x1080 but it's stuck in the middle of the loading screen and I have to press the win key again to exit the game and it crashes with "This application has crashed. It will now be terminated."
I tried to do it manually with the texture fix and without texture fix, followed this guide
but it's still the same. I make sure that the game is run with my NVIDIA card but nothing seems to be working.
The only way that it is working in 1920x1080 is if I load the game with my Intel Graphics and it is all fine except it's slower and I want to use my NVIDIA card to play it. It works with my NVIDIA card if I delete the userProps.xml from EA GAMES folder but I have to do it every time so my neighborhoods are reset every time. Strangely If I set my resolution to be 1600x900 the game works and does not have any issues but I really want to make it work in 1920x1080. I'd really appreaciate your suggestions. Thank you in advance!
I repaired the game via origin so it brought back my original Graphic Rules and Video Cards files and deleted EA GAMES folder from My Documents.
