Sims 2 Ultimate Collection won't run on my NVIDIA GeForce 820M card
NVidia cards have had a problem with running ever since Windows 10.
I believe that this can help: Windows 10 and NVidia Problems
But apart from that - NVidia and Sims 2 have a weird relationship in that it will only load when the smooth edges is at the minimum. You can change it to maximum and it will play fine while you are there, but if you don't return it to minimum before exiting the game, it will get the directx error.
I finally fixed the nvidia situation and got it working on it, however I can only do this in fullscreen mode and not in window mode. Is there a way to fix that?
Every time I load it in window mode I get the 3D_Directx error, which causes the game to terminate.
