View Full Version : Custom Clothes/Mesh's Screwed up
3rd May 2010, 3:50 PM
Hey... I been looking around for a while now and found no answer.
If I download custom content like skins and such, They are either: texture screwed. The mesh all wiggly and distorted, or ends up a black bodied sim.
If anyone knows what I can do to solve it please answer.
I'm using a e-machines laptop, I don't know what graphics card I'm using...
There must be another solution then "Buy a new graphics card." >.<

If your graphics card isn't strong enough to support the game, then it isn't. There are tips and tricks available for those using an integrated chip, but really it's best not to play on a machine not built to handle the game unless the prospect of destroying the hardware doesn't bother you.
If you want help, please provide your specs, as outlined in the "Quick Summary" section of this FAQ: Game Help:System Specs.

Those aren't your full specs (the link I provided describes exactly what we mean when we ask for your computer's specs), but your own analysis of the problem is correct: your integrated graphics are nowhere near strong enough to handle all of the EPs you've listed in your profile. I'm surprised that you're only experiencing problems when you add cc to the game. If you haven't already read this guide, please do so: Game Help:Onboard Graphics.
I would recommend that you stop playing the game on this laptop. It isn't built for it, and you could end up destroying the hardware.

Meh your right... Atleast The sims 1 works on here >.<
Thanks for the answer.
Edit: Thankfully My brother is letting me use his PC
Its a Desktop and it runs The sims 3 on it fine... I guess I can try it on his.
