Is your Mac one of the new M1 Max/Pro with the camera notch?

Sims 4 enlarging everything outside of game

★★ Novice

Hi!

 

ive been playing the sims 4 on Mac for a long time now and I’ve finally had enough. Whenever I open the game it enlarges everything outside of the game. Icons, the dock, other open app windows.

 

Putting the game into windowed mode fixes it but I don’t like to play that way and putting it back into full screen doesn’t help. I tried to change the UI and that helped for a time however the things outside of game were still a bit larger than normal, but then I kept fiddling with it and now it’s back to being massive.

 

anybody got any permanent solutions?

 

thank you!

That's because it's changing the resolution of your screen to the game resolution you have set in full screen. If you can't match your Mac resolution in-game your only option is to play in windowed mode.

It's a known issue and seems related to the camera notch in the display. Switch to windowed mode to workaround it.

I managed to figure that out after some more playing around. And I have the right resolution but then I can’t click directly on buttons… if that makes sense. To click on ‘game options’ for example I have to move the curser down below the button. I’ve tried repairing the game etc, but it won’t fix…

Ok I hope the photo helps. I’ve removed all CC/mods, game version is normal, not sure where to run antivirus but I have a software that detects and removes malware, tried normal and hard repair in origin. Hope that all makes sense! Thanks for your help!

Really helpful, thanks Standard smile

Your cursor is not clicking in the correct place because, it seems from other reports, of the camera notch in your Mac display. You need to play in windowed mode to workaround it. I've merged your thread into this one on the issue.
