Sims 3 Graphics Card - Intel(R) HD Graphics 520
« on: March 13, 2017, 03:07:01 AM »
Hello,
So, I understand how to do the steps to get Sims 3 to recognize my graphics card, but I don't know how to do it for my specific graphics card.
Name: Intel(R) HD Graphics 520
ID: 1916
Texture: 32
GPU: 1

Please help!

Add the line under vendor "Intel" 0x8086 in your GraphicsCards.sgr file. Look for something like what's below.

vendor "Intel" 0x8086
    card 0x0042 "Havendale"
    card 0x0046 "Havendale"

Insert this line under the "vendor" line
    card 0x1916 "Intel(R) HD Graphics 520"

When finished it should look like this:

vendor "Intel" 0x8086
    card 0x1916 "Intel(R) HD Graphics 520"
    card 0x0042 "Havendale"
    card 0x0046 "Havendale"

Save the file and the game should pick up the graphics card.

What about for the graphicsrules.srg file?  How do I format that?

Graphicsrules.sgr doesn't need to be edited. As it's already setup to meet your graphics settings.
