I have been trying for a while to get sims 2 working in a bigger window mode but the only size option that ever shows up is 800 by 600.
i was trying to ask for help over at mod the sims, but i was suggested to try here instead.

i have tried messing with GraphicRules.sgr and doing the whole change the lowest resolution https://simsvip.com/2014/07/20/the-...solution-guide/ but it didnt fix it.

Instead of pasting your config-log.txt (which causes it to be cut off), could you please attach it to your next post? Use the "Full Editor" button and you'll see an option to attach files.

Thank you. I hope someone will be able to help you. At least now they have more complete information with which to do so Big Grin
Question... I have never seen the identifier "The Sims 2 SC". What does that stand for?

I don't think so, my friend. Store Edition is marked "SE", not "SC".
I'm not certain about this, but it looks like you're trying to play the "Super Collection", which is the MAC version of the game. That one is no good on a Windows PC. If it *is* the Super Collection, then I'm surprised that you got as far as you did.

Store Edition is not SE but Sims2SC.exe and is EP99. The graphics rules in the Store Edition folder needs to be edited as that is the latest EP.

Odd! Well, then I stand corrected. Thank you for that, @HugeLunatic.
