sims 3 Doesnt recognise my videocard

Hi,

 

So I started playing the sims again, but I rain into a problem pretty quickly

When I launched the game for the first time it gave me the error that my videocard (GTX 960) wasnt recognised.

I didnt think to much about it and just launched the game, the framerate is terrible. 

So I started looking for solutions to the game to recognise my videocard. I thought I found the solution but there was one problem. (Changing your videocard id in the Graphiccards file)

I dont have a device config, the file is just missing in my sims 3 folder. 

So now I still have terrible framerate and I dont know if he recognises my videocard.

 

thanks for your time,

@Groenendaaltje  The GTX 960 is not in the game video card database. Here is a link on how to add your video card to the 2 files - add new video card  At first it looks a little complicated so I suggest you work it out on paper first. Make a backup of the 2 .sgr files BEFORE you change anything.

Hi, Thanks for you reponse!

 

The problem is, I dont know where to find the Deviceconfig.log.

It is not in my sims 3 folder, and at this point am really confused, I have looked everywhere.

 

NEVERMIND! I FINALLY FOUND IT, THANK YOU SO MUCH! :D
