Hi @Michalik2429 

 

Crinrict had asked you for the dxdiag, earlier, which shows him more than just 'basic' specs.. if you would like his help, please do post them for him, (I notice no-one on this thread has as yet) also if you're new to the 'how' of that, see this post

 

TIA

 

Sasha

 

nb: my game launches fine post-patch.

Again, as you say 'now it isn't'.. Crinrict needs the dxdiag to help you fix your game, since this is a Technical Help board, you do need to provide the tech' side of things for this, in this case it's the dxdiag, when you can then, to constantly complain when the dxdiag will help clear it up more than likely, is not productive, so get back to us when you have it please. Thumbs up

 

 

 

nb: also, the update has not 'broken' things in the game imo.. my game is running fine.

@Sashas0nic @crinrict I would love to supply the dxdiag, but that only applies to Windows, I play on a Mac. Apologies if I have posted anything rude, but it is frustrating not being able to play something without issue that I've put so much money into. Any suggestions for a Mac user?

@Pineapple_Stef  Not at all..  just that the other poster had said more than once that they 'didn't want to post them'.. even though asked by one of our 'resident Heroes'.. Wink

 

nb: I don't 'read' dxdiag, though I used to (but not up to date anymore), however the Heroes and Pro's do, such as Crinrict, and Kreatora, and need them to help people.

So I just went and got my dxdiag for you. Again I reiterate that this is an older computer (runs Windows 7). Repairing the game via origin did allow me to actually boot and play the game (although still rather slow), however most of my issues now appear to be bugs or glitches surrounding gameplay, such as sims getting stuck in rooms that are not locked, sims standing idly while their needs plummet, etc. Debugging via testing cheats has not eliminated this problem. I've attached the dxdiag results to this post. Really hoping we can figure out a fix for all of these issues.

Your PC is below minimum requirements. Try to set graphics to low and enable laptop mode.

I've already tried setting everything to the lowest settings possible. I just assumed if it was below minimum requirements the game wouldn't start up at all, not have all these glitchy incidents. And also have these minimum requirements changed since the patch or have they been the same for a while? Because to me what it sounds like is that because of this new rebranding I have to spend thousands of dollars for a new computer to play this game that I've already spent hundreds on.

 

One of the reasons I loved this game and spent so much money on it was BECAUSE it was so accessible to play, even on my slower, older computer. Ever since Dell ripped me off with my newer computer, I've been forced to use my older pc for gaming, and one by one I've been losing my ability to play my favorite games due to updates similar to this one. I simply do not have the money to buy a new computer at this time, and quite frankly I'm not sure I ever will. Sims was my last game that I was able to play that I truly enjoyed, and now because of this patch It's been taken from me. Needless to say, I'm hurt and disappointed.

 

Edit: Btw this is probably why no one else wanted to post their dxdiag. Because the moment we do, it places the onus of fixing the problem to the people who have significantly less ability to fix it, ie us the players. A lot of us don't have the money to shell out for a new pc to play this game now that this patch has shut us down. Meanwhile the developers have all the power to revert the game back to the state it was before the update.

 

Also I'm noticing now that my first response to this got deleted somehow. All your recommended steps had already been implemented prior to this patch even hitting my computer, and the game seemed to run just fine before this patch. Were these minimum requirements always in place or are they brand new to this update?
