Hey all,
Unfortunately I have been having trouble with the Sims 2 Ultimate Collection on my Asus notebook (that is using Windows 10, previously was Windows 8.1), which has an Nvidia Geforce 820M and Intel Graphics card. During this I have been trying to get my game to run on only just the Nvidia card. I have succeed on getting it working on full screen mode but not on the window mode, which is the mode I need to use in able for me to continue my machinima work.
So here's what the problem is:
- Whenever I load the game in window mode I get the error "Direct3D returned an error: E_INVALIDARG! The application will now terminate"
- I have used the Graphics Rule Maker to set the game my Nvidia card; no luck in fixing it.
- I have also used the Nvidia Graphics Card and Texture fix files that were provided; still no luck there.

So sadly, I haven't found a solution to fix it yet. Can anyone help me?
Please and Thank You.

Unfortunately the Windowed/Full Screen mode problem is not one we've been able to fix. If you can get Windowed mode with the Intel graphics, I would suggest you stick to that. The Intel card is actually strong enough for Sims 2 nowadays.
