No shadows avaliable,weird flickering, no smooth edges
Looking at this you need the following things:
Download Intel Graphics Card fix
Download Video Card - Intel - 0f31
You need to put them in the following 2 folders:
\Program Files (x86)In the Program Folders\EA\The Sims 2 - Mansion & Gardens\TSData\Res\Config\
\Program Files (x86)\\EA\The Sims 2 - Mansion & Gardens\TSData\Res\CSConfig\
That should fix it.
Opening and closing the graphic rules.sgr with notepad is also what I do. If you have 'hide extensions for known types' unticked (i.e. turned off) - you'll see if it's really a txt or sgr file. if your extensions are hidden. Then it's likely that it's been saved as a graphic rules.sgr.txt which displays as a graphic rules.sgr, but it's type is txt - which means that it won't get picked up.
The Intel ® HD is perfectly capable of doing Sims 2 in High Resolution. However, in the days when Sims 2 was first started, they weren't so Maxis put in coding that stopped the Intel cards from even being considered for High Resolution. What I have done in mine, is turn off that coding, and have them decided on their merits.
This is probably why no matter what you did, it didn't change anything.
I want to thank you so,so, so, soooo, so much. When I went to the game, at first it looked like it didn't work, I was in the neighbourhood view and the weird flickering-thing still happened but then I picked my family and went to graphic options and guess what, smooth edges and shadows option is now avaliable
Thank you so, so much again! Also, what confuses me is that when I picked the smooth edges option and set it to high, the flickerings immediately dissappeared...
But there is still one thing that bothers me,
those ugly black square-things that appear when a sim is standing on the floor (note: it only happens inside the building)
I enclose you a screenshot for a better look
