I'm new here and I recently purchased a new laptop (rest in peace my 9 years old laptop).

My System Info:
ASUS Windows 10
Inter Core i-7-7700HQ @ 2.80GHz 2.81GHz

I'm able to run sims 2 with ALL of the expansion/packs on it just fine except that whenever I move the camera or zoom in/out, the screen tend to flicker slightly. I downloaded the graphic maker program, it fixed part of the problem but it still flickers and it annoys the heck out of me. I also double checked on the FAQ on how to read my graphic card, it has met all of the requirements except for the last part about the boopProp enumerateMultisampleLevels - mine says false. How may I change it to true permanently?

My config-log.txt is also attached to this.

I would appreciate it if anyone could take a look at my file and let me know what I need to do or anything. Thank you!!

Edit: forgot to add this - this has been running without any of CC downloads, just base games with all of its expansion/packs. I also updated all of the patches too. So I know that there's no CC or patch that may cause this.

Unfortunately Graphic Rules Maker doesn't work for all instances. Fortunately, I have a card that will fix it up for you.


Install this in

\Program Files (x86)\Origin Games\Fun with Pets\SP9\TSData\Res\Config\
\Program Files (x86)\Origin Games\Fun with Pets\SP9\TSData\Res\CsConfig\

allow the card to overwrite the existing one.

Once that is in, push the smooth edges up to max. That should fix the flickering.
