Graphics Rules Maker force texture memory
Hi - you don't need the force texture memory fix. You don't really need to anything else.
If you have a look at your config-log.txt and go down to the line called 'Texture memory' it will tell you if you need it or not.
Texture memory: 4095MB <-- this is yours, if you needed the texture memory fix it would say 32Mb.
What the person told you is incorrect - it has nothing to do with if it was a new card or not. It has everything to do with what version of Windows you are using and how up to date it is.
Microsoft made a change to the operating system which meant that the texture memory was located in a different place. Some graphic cards can find them, some can't.
With the CPU Count, you *may* need to do it - but test your game first for lag before you do it. If you don't have lag, you don't need it.
Don't worry about the memory thing. Although it says 1G, that doesn't have anything to do with how much the game actually uses. As a 32-bit program, Sims 2 can only use up to 4G. So for your 8G, it's only using half of it. There is no way of updating it to make it more RAM, apart from re-writing it into a 64-bit program. Which is out of my expertise.
I will take the rest of what you said and run with it. I do actually have 16 Gb of RAM, but I guess that doesn't matter for Sims 2.
The full graphics is fine as is the 1024 - as long as it's over 32Mb, it will be set to hi-resolution. Mine is set to 1744Mb which was what mine was before the Windows O/S change was made on my older graphics card. What these values do is set up the things like whether it is hi or lo resolution, whether there is shadows, etc. It doesn't actually specify what memory the program has to use. Hence the reason why we don't worry about the RAM being set to 1G. All that tells the program is that there is enough RAM to do hi-res. Not that the game can only use 1G.
otherwise, thank you for relieving one headache. Now to work on getting ts3 to work right.
Doing the Troubleshoot compatibility is the only way to get to it nowadays.
I don't have Windows 10 - just Windows 7, and that still works with a compatibility tab.
When I see what they do with Windows 10, I hug my Windows 7 tightly and promise to never let it go.
