Sims 4 Screen Flickering

★★★ Newbie

Hi!

 

I just downloaded Sims 4 and ever since I first opened it the screen started flinching from the top. I'm not too good with technical stuff so I would need some help with this. I tried to fix the problem with Origin, but it couldn't find the issue. I read somewhere that the problem could be about too high graphics? How do I get them lower on the game then? 

I didn't do anything to cause the clitch, it came on it's own when I tried to run the game. I also tried closing it and opening again, and I feel like the flinching gets worse and worse when continuing playing the game.

I went to fix the graphic settings and found the problem. The edge scrolling is either too high or too low. For me I put it on medium and the flickering went away, though it could be a different setting for you.

That doesn't sound too good. 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...

 

To lower you graphics settings in game Go to Game Options > Graphics and lower the settings, then restart your game.

For me my Edge Smoothing was off and I thought "Hey, lets put it on high". So I did and it fixed it!

My screen has been flickering for MONTHS, it's been driving me crazy cause I tried changing everything in the settings, removed all my CC, repaired my game. Nothing worked. I've had trouble finding anyone else who seemed to have the same problem. Now I tried this and everything is wonderful! Thank You!

This isn’t helping my game it’s just making it worse. Please could you get back to me on how to get rid of it. If I put the edge smoothing on high it gets worse.
