Hello! first time posting! I hope this is the right place.

I recently started playing the sims 2 on my laptop and the game keeps flickering just when I was finally able to run it without lag.
I'm on windows 10, I've tried running it on compatibility but nothing changes. I was reading previous threads and I changed it to run as admin but idk what else to do.

My pc specs:
Windows 10 64bit
Processor: Intel Core i7-5500 CPU 2.4Ghz
Ram: 12GB
Graphics Card: AMD R7 M265 Series

Quick side note: I read that I'm suppose to change the smooth edges settings but both shadow and smooth edges settings are grey out

You need the right Graphics rules. You can get it on this website, but I'm not sure where it's at. Someone will be by shortly to advise you, help you get it straightened out.
