an't get TS4 to run on MBPr 2013 15"

Post by Zed4711 » Mon Jan 08, 2018 11:44 pm

So I'm running OS High Sierra on a MBPr 15" early 2013 with 8gb Ram with a 2.4 GHz Intel Core. I've tried install Sims 4 using the Wineskin Winery and it install fine apart from the Direct X and C+++, however I have been able to get it to work prefect on my partner's 2017 Macbook using the same technique, but when I try to open it it says my graphics card is incompatible with the game blah blah. I've assumed that this is due tot he fact that my MBP has an integrated Intel HD Graphics 4000 1536 MB with NVIDIA GeForce GT 650M 1 GB and so I downloaded an application to switch to the NVIDIA as the Intel is used as default I think. However it still came up with the message when I switched cards. Now I'm not really sure what to do, my only other idea now is to uninstall it, then switch to the NVIDIA, then install it again with the NVIDIA and then try to play. Other than that I'm completely lost now, any ideas?

The error message says

"Can't run The Sims 4 with the video card in this system. Please check that the video card meets the latest minimum specifications and that the latest druvers are installed.
