Ok I updated my Orgin on 12/6/15 everything was fine. Decided to play sims3 and the screen was dark during the day and really dark at night. I always played offline with no problems so I decided to go back to offline. The new update changed my screen on offline to dark. So I decided to restore and I have my game back on offline. I want to play online so can get the updates!. Can some one help me with this issues please. Nividia 660 gtx is up to date
Please help 12/8/15
Solved! Go to Solution.
Are you running the game with Compatibility mode enabled? If so, please completely disable it.
Also, right-click on The Sims 3 cover in Origin and select Game properties... Check Disable Origin in game for this title
Are you playing on fullscreen or windowed mode?
Try playing Windowed mode. Go to game settings and unselect Fullscreen setting.
Well I'm not saying it will fix it, that's why I said that you should try it I had a similar problem on an old monitor and playing Windowed mode fixed it, so I'd give it a chance.
Sorry took so long well I tried window mode in the past the cursor doesn't work. Well now I updated to the new Orgin my daughter wanted to play Sims4. and I now have the dark screen Sims3 on offline we have to go through Orgin which I was afraid of. My nvidia is up to date my gaming PC is up to date Windows 8.1 is up to date I meet all of the requirements for Sims3. Talk to ea tier 3 no change to the game only game that has a beautiful picture is Sims4 go figure. I tried for a year to fix the dark screen issue hesitate to uninstall the and reinstall it seems like I have no other option. And one other thing called HP had the do a clean boot make changes to my PC and still no change. So this weekend I will uninstall and try to reinstall the base game only. If that doesn't work I will uninstall all eleven games to see if that works if that doesn't I have lost hundreds of dollars in Sims 3. I have been a loyal customer since Sims 2 I hate not being able to play Sims3 it's my favorite game. My dark screen issue the town is dark and my white people are orange I no longer have a crisp bright picture I tried to give all of the information I had dealing with Sims 3. Please help me Please!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Simmer for life 😀
Have you tried a monitor instead of a TV?
I'd give it a try, just to discard that the problem is the TV
