Edge smoothing issues?

★★★★ Novice

Hey everybody!

I'm having some trouble with "Edge smoothing". Every time I turn it on, my screen just turns black - All my other video settings are set to high and there's no problem with any of them? I'm playing my Macbook Pro if that has anything to do with my issue?

 

Hope someone out there got a fix for this - would be great Wink

Please can you provide more information about your Mac. Instructions on how to do so here - http://answers.ea.com/t5/The-Sims-Mac/READ-FIRST-Sims-4-Mac-Help-Guides-and-Troubleshooting/m-p/4612...

 

Edge smoothing needs quite a powerful graphics card to render properly. It may be that your Mac isn't quite powerful enough for the higher graphics options.

Your Mac has integrated Intel graphics so it's not ideal for gaming. Plus the 13" MBP has dual core processors, not quad core. Whilst the operating system will use the hardware as efficiently as possible, it will also be throttling power to avoid overheating (the downside of Apple's quest for thin and sleek laptops). Have you tried lowering other settings and then enabling the edge smoothing?
