.txt  Video Cards.txt (Size: 26.78 KB / Downloads: 553)
.txt  T400A-PC-config-log.txt (Size: 10.46 KB / Downloads: 444) I've attached the necessary files. I'm still not getting "smooth edges". Can you either tell me what I did wrong, or possibly fix it?

Lenovo T400
Intel GMA 4500MHD.
T9400, 2.53ghz Core 2 Duo.
Win 10
Running Sims2 @ 1280x800. Running pretty darned good, other than "Smooth edges" is grayed out.

Thank You! Would appreciate. Smile

According to your config-log.txt you do have the ability to smooth edges -

boolProp enumerateMultisampleLevels true

However, you do have a screen aspect that it doesn't recognise that maybe causing the problem with the smooth edges off.

Monitor aspect: 1.600000, <<UNRECOGNIZED>>
Screen mode: 1280x800x32BPP,60Hz

Try putting into windowed mode, and setting it to 1024x768 which is the closest that it knows.
Then let me know how that goes.

Didn't work. I just get a blank window with music when loading a hood.

Is there a Graphics rules maker specifically for the Intel GMA 4500HMD?

Or is there a video card.sgr for my graphics card that's better than mine?

Maybe this is what I need.

Its not your graphic rules or video card.sgr that is stopping the smooth edges. According to your config-log.txt your smooth edges is turned on.

When are you trying to turn on your smooth edges? in the hood or in the lot?

Try doing it in the lot.

In the meantime, are you running it in admin mode, and with compatibility done?

WinXP sp2 for compat.

Admin yes.

Other things, yes.

Ok, I "think" I may know what's going on. My computer has "switchable graphics".

I'm on GMA-4500MHD right now. Not a bad chipset.

I have a Radeon 3470 chipset also, with 256mb/mem. A better chipset.

I MAY have to "Backwater" my O/S to Win7 to take advantage of that chipset.

Somehow, my graphics set may be interfering with my game. Don't know if this is possible, but I'm going to experiment with it to see what happens. In the mean time, if you come up with a possible solution, please post it.

Thank you.

My bad. Turns out I do NOT have switchable graphics. So, any suggestion you have is appreciated.

Which O/S are you on Kunder? You might be better off making it compatible with Windows 7, if you have Windows 8 or 10.

It's Win10, unfortunately. Guess I'll go back to 7 on this one.
