Hi there I'm trying to run the sims 2 UC via the downloading instructions from r/sims2help

I'm using Boot Camp and luckily the game works fine I just cant seem to actually update my graphics rules and video cards in game which reflects in my config log

I have the leefish intel med cpu and texture memory graphics rules download and I updated my video card so it shows up in the database but my game is still weird lol

I also managed to do the 4gb patch to my game but that's the only other fix reflected in my game and config log

I've tried lots of little fixes that were suggested on the r/sims2help as well as ones suggested by some older posts on here but nothing seems to actually reflect in my game

It may also be a problem of my installation of dxdirect (which is v.12 which may be an issue?) as I've seen that's a common problem so I attached it here

I'm not at all techy I just love love love the sims 2 so I apologize for any missing information

Have a good day wherever you are Smile

I'm not sure what issue you are actually having? The config log shows you have successfully applied the 4 gb patch and your video card is being recognized? You will need to be more specific on your game being weird.

I'm curious what you actually mean by that. Because there are no in-game methods of updating these files. They can only be updated outside the game, using GRM or a text editor. And while the game is running, one should not attempt to edit these files, if that is even possible.

Hi there!

My game and config log were seemingly not fixed by the intel graphics and cpu med fix as it shows as only 32mb despite my computer being able to handle more

I just mean that despite trying all of these fixes my game still looks like the one in the tutorial before the fixes were applied

'it' is apparently meant to be the texture memory setting. Your computer being ABLE to handle more means NOTHING if it isn't TOLD to use more. It isn't sentient, and it doesn't read your mind. Consider running GRM and telling it to raise Texture Memory setting to -- oh, I don't know -- perhaps 3072 MB ??? 4096 MB ???

When running GRM you want to choose the first two options, one of which is to not force texture memory.

I honestly don't understand the problem either.
