What are the best settings for Sims 2?
#1
Hi everyone, what are the best settings for Sims 2? I have a super annoying flickring going on that does not let me play. I tried different settings but it does not work. Can someone please orient me on what settings is the best to play this game.
Thanks in advance.

also, provide a screenshot both your GSDX plugin settings and speedhacks section settings.

I would just say "play the PC version" but try using Software Mode (F9) first.

Homer: "It's Raining Men"?!
Moe: Yeah, not no more, it ain't. [throws the record out the window which lands into Smithers' car]
Smithers: Ow! [looks at the record] Ohhh.

Marge, can you stop saying to play the PC version. This is an emulation forum after all.

Anyways, Jerikochan, can you post ALL of your settings please? The compatibility list doesn't show any issues with the game, so it might have something to do with your settings.

Like I said, I did say "I would just say" but I gave him some decent advice. Software mode would probably eliminate (or at least show signs of elimination) the glitch.

Oooh, OpenGL?

I tried pressing F9 during emulation, but it became even more glitchy and slow. Thanks anyway for the sugestion, ill try it in other games that get glitchy. I did not know about the software mode.
I attached my other settings below.

Could be Speedhacks causing the flickering maybe? Also, you didn't list the Game Fixes tab. Did you enable anything there?

Try putting EE Cyclerate to 1, VU Cycle Stealing to 0, and enable MTVU instead. See if the flickering goes away.


[Edit]
Turn off FX Shader as well, just noticed that one. Maybe that causes issues too.

Yeah, speed hacks usually cause flickering issues. If, settings the sliders to (0,1) doesn't help then, try using with different video backends.
