OK. Your folder there is a mess. Lets clean it up and fix it.

1. Delete all these files:

Folder 'VideoCards-Radeon-099b'
Folder 'VideoCards-Radeon-9830'
Graphic Rules.sgr.bak
Video Cards.sgr.bak
Video Cards.sgr
Video Cards_1.sgr

2. Unzip VideoCards-Radeon-9830 as follows:
Right Click on the Rar file and choose "Extract Here"

Do this in both folders.

Can you run Bodyshop so I can see what's happening at the game level in the config-log.txt. I want to see if the card changes have taken.

@Chzis When you did "copied" over your EA folder from your old computer to your new computer - was that the EA folder in the programs folder, or the EA folder in your Downloads folder?

W programs folder then re install are ur fixes

Programs can't be just copied over, they need to be reinstalled.

The Documents folder doesn't - but I'd put it aside until we've sorted out this problem.


Before you post requesting help
Information we need

  1. The -config-log.txt from the Logs folder in the My Documents\EA\The Sims2\ Click "full editor" below to attach a text file.
  2. Your operating System.
  3. What the problem actually is - that will be a picture to show the problem (optional), and accompanying text files that turn up (optional), and a detailed description of what happened, and what you expected to happen.

Sorry, that is a members only option
