My older laptop (from 2012) on which The Sims 2 worked, passed away!

I talked to poisson on Discord and I didn't do jack and it launched fine and rendered fine. *shrug*.

I think poisson is in a walking ghost phase though. The RTX 2070 still has 8GB of VRAM and will probably manifest pink and purple eventually. We'll do the D9VK thing when it comes to that.

Thank you for reporting it here, @crazysim . Smile

I've sent a message to you on Discord a few minutes ago. Wink

You know what? I've figured out what was wrong with my The Sims 2 installation on my most recent powerful desktop! :o

When you install the Scriptorium software, you HAVE TO choose SCRIPTORIUM ONLY, because the Radiance software included makes The Sims 2 crash! That's it! Smile

As a result, I can now play Sims 2 BOTH on my laptop and on my desktop PC!!! \o/ Big Grin

Hi LeeFishers, and others! Smile

I was wondering if anyone has finally found a solution for The Sims 2 to work on a very recent and very powerful PC (custom-made gamer desktop)?

I have a new desktop since March 2019, and I now need The Sims 2 to work on it, because of the "death" of the laptop...

- Operating System: Windows 10, the most recent Family Edition with the latest updates;

- CPU: Intel Core i7-8700 6-core @ 3.2 GHz;

- GPU: NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2070;

- RAM: 16 Gb.

...according to anyone, is it possible to play one of my all-time favourite games, again, on that PC? :/

Thanks for any answer!

edit: please, let me know if I have to add any other information! Wink
