ryzen-r7-2700-radeon-rx-480-8gb.zip THIS IS NOT ZIP!!!!!!! THIS IS 7z archive, use 7zip to unpack (zip was 4MB+)

before do any changes make backup, if not blame yourself

Files below copy to TSBin
4gb_patch.exe
d3d10.dll
d3d10_1.dll
d3d10core.dll
d3d11.dll
d3d9.dll
dxgi.dll
with "4gb_patch.exe" patch your "Sims2EP9.exe" for 4GB memory workaround at x64 system

NOW files below from TSBin
d3d10.dll
d3d10_1.dll
d3d10core.dll
d3d11.dll
d3d9.dll
dxgi.dll
Sims2EP9.exe
copy to CSBin (all seven files)

files below
Graphics Rules.sgr
Video Cards.sgr
copy to this two files to folders below and overwrite
C:\Program Files (x86)\EA GAMES\The Sims 2 Mansion\TSData\Res\Config (check patch, I have polish version)
C:\Program Files (x86)\EA GAMES\The Sims 2 Mansion\TSData\Res\CSConfig (check patch, I have polish version)


version 1
change properties of your mansion shourtcut on desktop to run file Sims2EP9.exe FROM CSBIN !!!!!!!!!!!!!! CRUCIAL if run from TSBin give me error 0xc00000005
example "C:\Program Files (x86)\EA GAMES\The Sims 2 Mansion\CSBin\Sims2EP9.exe" (check patch, I have polish version)

version 2
after copy to Csbin make shortcut to desktop from "Sims2EP9.exe"



now run "Sims2EP9.exe" from CSBin, for me was black screen with music, press ALT+TAB and you are in game
don't ask why and how, I don't know, I don't care, it just works

for extremely lazy people
copy files below
Graphics Rules.sgr
Video Cards.sgr
copy to this two files to folders below and overwrite
C:\Program Files (x86)\EA GAMES\The Sims 2 Mansion\TSData\Res\Config (check patch, I have polish version)
C:\Program Files (x86)\EA GAMES\The Sims 2 Mansion\TSData\Res\CSConfig (check patch, I have polish version)
at mansion desktop shortcut edit properties
"C:\Program Files (x86)\EA GAMES\The Sims 2 Mansion\TSBin\Sims2EP9.exe" (check patch, I have polish version) add -w for window-mode
"C:\Program Files (x86)\EA GAMES\The Sims 2 Mansion\TSBin\Sims2EP9.exe" -w and save properties
you can patch Sims2EP9.exe with 4gb_patch.exe


sorry for my english, found workaround faster then writing this post Smile
done for my friend, dont ask anything more, next time I will be here maybe in next 4 years to find my solution Smile
