I purhased Sims 2 double deluxe yesterday, Left it to install and whatnot,
Came to play it today and continues to load for ages, Then when I check on it, it seems to be not responding on the system task manager, When I close the game through the task manager, It is saying about a SP4 problem which windows is trying to solve...
I am using Vista and can only assume my laptop is sufficient, Here are the details of it...
compatibility mode... Right click on the Sims 2 shortcut and then on properties. Click the compatability tab and put a tick in the "run this program in compatability mode for" then choose xp in the drop down menu and click apply.
I think Sims sp4 refers to an expansion pack for the game( Celebration pack or something similar). These Packs have high graphics requirements which may be bad news as i assume you have an intergrated graphics card on your lappy. Do you know what you onboard graphics chip spec is,or tell us exactly which laptop you have and i will see if you meet the minimum requirements for the game.
That's what i required thanks,but i'm still not sure about that card though. Go to this site and choose "The Sims 2" from the drop down list and it will tell you if your laptop can handle it. click here
