Sims 3 doesn't recognize video card gtx 1060 ti
« on: April 13, 2020, 03:02:57 PM »
Hi,

it's been a long time since i played sims 3 and now i have new laptop. i installed sims 3 and got the warning window about the unrecognized video card. i played a while but the graphics looked very bad.

i checked the "How-To: Get Sims 3 to Recognize a New Graphics Card" topic and followed the steps unsuccesfully: i launched the game and then the city looked all white, exit the game and checked to DeviceConfig file which was empty.

then i also installed files (Sims 3 SGR Files (CPU Tweak) attached to the how-to-topic but that didn't work out either: game launched but the graphic settings were low and checked the deviceConfig file/game didn't recognize video card.

my deviceconfig info:
Name (driver):   NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1660 Ti
Name (database): NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1660 Ti [Found: 0, Matched: 0]
Vendor:          NVIDIA
Chipset:         Vendor: 10de, Device: 2191, Board: 3ffc17aa, Chipset: 00a1

i don't feel so confident about trying to make the game work by myself anymore… is there something i didn't notice to make my game work?

thanks in advance!

Thank you for sharing the Device ID.

Try this zip file. It has been edited specially for a GTX1060Ti
