Hey fellow simmers,

Hope your day went well! I'm trying to run TS2 on a pretty beefy new computer (I have noticed that there are issues with this.) I've returned to windows after a 15 year hiatus so please forgive me if I seem a little dense.

I'm running Windows 10. I did apply the 4GB patch and confirmed that it was successfully installed. This did fix the game freezing before I could even load a neighborhood. However, now after I load a neighborhood, a lot of the graphics flash pink and the game crashes before I can go any further.

I am given the error (in a pop up window) "The application has crashed. The application will now terminate."

Any help for fixing this issue (if possible) would be greatly appreciated. Thank you very much for your time Smile

You have to put your Graphics card in the database. The easiest way to do that is with the GRM - Graphics Rules Maker. Make sure to run the GRM as an admin. (You can also use it to get the TS2 bodyshop working properly!)

Too much CC also gives the game the pink-flashing problem, so make sure your game is set up and playable before you add in CC.

Good luck Wink
