Re: SIMS 2 crashing on Install

I believe in you... :mrgreen: I also have tried it with VirtualBox without success. The VM is packing a virtual driver over the graphics card. This will work with dxdiag and fulfilled the 2d + 3d tests. But the game isn't realize the cards specs. Log-File is 1.7 GB raw as wine_sims2_log1.7z on http:...

Re: SIMS 2 crashing on Install

from askubuntu.com I went to the PPA's Launchpad page and the info section states that the packages it provides are only for 16.04 and 16.10...also there's this warning: "WARNING: Do not use this PPA with enabled HWE stack." If I'm not mistaken, 18.04's default kernel does have HWE stack enabled. Fu...

Re: SIMS 2 running but have Graphic Problem

First off - you need to fix this error. Probably: apt-get install libtxc-dxtn-s2tc0 libtxc-dxtn-s2tc0:i386 Nick-picking, but ideally you'd want to start the Sims executable with: /home/frank/usr/bin/wine start /unix "/home/frank/.wine/drive_c/Program Files (x86)/EA GAMES/Die Sims 2/TSBin/Sims2.exe"...

SIMS 2 running but have Graphic Problem

Hello and back again... after a long trail with NVIDIA Quadro 600 and no luck with the graphics in parts of the game, I have bought another card. An NVIDIA GeForce GTX 750 Ti with 2GB Mem.

Re: SIMS 2 crashing on Install

About the configuration files... I don't know... But I guess it's probably just CS =" Create-a-Sim ": CSConfig vs. the actual game configuration: Config . I'd probably recommend starting by adding your graphics card to the Video Cards.sgr files. Just remember: Alter one component at a time. Backup ...

Re: SIMS 2 crashing on Install

Bob, Great job - Thank you. A last question, not sure you are the right one to answer: The .sgr files will be twice, one set in ..Res/CSConfig/ and one set in ..Res/Config/ The "Graphics Rules" are different, the "Video Cards" are equal. Which one will be for what? You know? Take a look at the Sims ...

Re: SIMS 2 crashing on Install

Why kids...dogs are so much better... :idea:

SIMS 2 is also running with NVIDIA 340.104 so Hibernate will work again.
Found out that my Quadro 600 is'nt known to SIMS.
Graphics quality is truly bad.

Any idea?

Sorry no luck again. Same error. Output is on: http://ge.tt/3RE4VOp2 as SIMS2-4.7z series. I also trust that you've filed a bug at: Nvidia Forums: Linux .

Re: SIMS 2 crashing on Install

Try a registry override to force your cards device ID to be the same as the Nvidia Geforce GT 430 (which is the equivalent desktop card to your Quadro 600 )... wine reg add 'HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Wine\Direct3D' /v 'VideoPciDeviceID' /t 'REG_DWORD' /d '0x0de1' /f Worth a shot anyway... :lol: fr...
