I apologize if this is the wrong place to post this, but I didn't know how else to post my problem. I'm still kind of new here. About a year ago, I had somewhat of the same problem with my Sims 2 Ultimate Collection game. I went back and tried to fix it myself, but had no luck at all.

I still have the same laptop. A Compaq Presario CQ57 Windows 10

Whenever I try to create a Sim, I get maybe halfway through it and then I hear a beeping noise on my computer and on my start screen It reads

The Sims 2 Mansion and Garden Stuff
The application has crashed. The application will now terminate.

Any feedback or help will be much appreciated! Thank you in advance! Smile

What did you do to try and fix it?

These are the cards that you should use:

Graphic Rules - Intel
Video Graphics - Intel - 0106

Install them in the Program folders:

\Program Files (x86)\Origin Games\Fun with Pets\SP9\TSData\Res\Config\
\Program Files (x86)\Origin Games\Fun with Pets\SP9\TSData\Res\CsConfig\

Now I notice that you've got smooth edges set to on, but you haven't got the CPU to do the smoothing on your machine.

You have
CPU: 2095.800048Mhz, Name:GenuineIntel, FPU:1, MMX:1

You need - 3000 to run with smooth edges on.

In the meantime, when your game crashes, does it create a Sims2Exception text file in the log folder? If it has, please attach it to this thread.
