Updates Jul 22, 2014 This thread is now locked since there's nothing new to be learned. If you need help with the FAQ, please create New Help thread with the answers to the questionnaire at the end of that FAQ (reproduced below).

Updates
Patch 1.42 appears to have updates for ATI/AMD cards. See post #19 (http://modthesims.info/showpost.php?p=3995152&postcount=19)

Issue
Do you have these problems?

Crashings with a new Graphics card that you just bought?
Graphical glitches on a new uber-level Graphics card when you should have been able to run the game on High settings?



Solution (or things to try)
If you have issues with a new GPU that is supposed to have worked, or you're seeing graphical glitches on an uber-level GPU, try the suggestions in Game Help:Getting new graphics cards recognized by the game.

This thread is for the questions and issues arising from following that FAQ. So, here again are the questions I need answered when you post. If you don't provide them, I'll point you back here. :) Unless, they aren't applicable.

What is the base game's patch version? Game Help:TS3 Patching Find Gameversion
Do you have dual GPUs? Have you made sure Sims 3 is using the dedicated one as shown in Guide: Two Graphics Cards? How to make Sims stop using the integrated one (http://modthesims.info/t/481768) guide?
Those with dual GPUs, do you add both of the GPUs in the sgr files or just the dedicated one? And ignoring the DeviceConfig.log file totally? Rather, you should rely on your card's Control Panel
If the edits still don't change the defaults when you click on Restore defaults, tweak the Option sliders yourself and Quit. Then next time you load the game, check if the previous settings were overwritten and goes back to being low or has your tweaks been retained?
If you need guidance on what strings to add where, please ready the Vendor and Device IDs by locating them from the various methods mentioned above. And include both information in your post.




Reminder
Note, that this is not the definitive solution if you have crashings. It is mainly if you have crashings for a new GPU that has ALL GREENs on the Game Help:TS3 System Requirements, and yet, it behaves as if it has ALL REDs or mix of REDs and YELLOWs.

If you have generic Crashings, not due to a new GPU replacement (or new system with supported GPU), then please work through the Game Help:Sims 3 Crashing Checklist, and start a new, separate thread for your issue with all the information asked for.

Very helpful info. My card is working fine but ran thru the tutorial just for the sake of it.

If I could, might I suggest adding the path to the DeviceConfig.log for those not aware of its location.

Thanks for posting!

I have changed my graphics card to a HD 6670 and the computer works fine with latest drivers from AMD. When I start the game there is however an error and the game don't start:


The Sims 3

Unable to start game
Device 0 cannot run this title.
No supported video graphics card detected. Please check your system hardware

My card is in that Requirement list:
Radeon HD 6670 / OEM Yes

I followed your guide but first thing is that the DeviceConfig.log is emty. Anyway I run dxdiag and found out I have this ID in GraphicsCards.sgr:
card 0x6758 "AMD Radeon HD 6600 series".
You had a similar card:
card 0x6739 "AMD Radeon HD 6800 Series".

In the GraphicsRules.sgr file I searched and found HD 66 in three places like you did.
So why is my card not recognized? Is the indentation in the GraphicsCards.sgr file significant?
At the beginning of the script the processor is checked. What more is checked? Here is my system:

My card is in that Requirement listThat's done by us, not EA.

If the card is on the .sgr files, the fact that the error states "No supported video graphics card detected." may be due to something else.

Changed to a HD 6670 from ...? What was the old GPU?
Does Windows Device Manager recognize this card? Or does it have a Yellow Exclamation mark?

All that "D3D7 Test Result: Not run" lines? And "DX Setup Parameters: Not found"...
Is DirectX current? If you don't know, update DirectX (http://www.microsoft.com/download/en/details.aspx?id=8109).

Removed Options.ini and let a new one gets generated at next load of the game?
Failing that, done step#3 of the Game Problem FAQ?

The card is in your list and also in the GraphicsCards.sgr file although the text is indented with a TAB for some cards.
I changed from an ATI x1600. I removed all drivers before the change.
It's recognized by WDM.
DirectX, well that need to be checked.

It must be someting special with that computer or the installation of the card because I installed the card on another compurter and the game works fine.

The first computer has Windows XP 32 bits and AMD processor while the one that works has Windows 7 64 bits and an Intel processor.
I'll try your hints on the computer that failed.

New questions:
AMD xxxx 3700+ is equvalant to an Intel 3.7 GHz. At least AMD says so.
Will the GraphicsRules .sgr script compensate for the Intel/AMD difference in clock speed? I remember it was not in The Sim 2.

Is the game really using more than one core in a multi core processor?

Morphar
22nd Sep 2012, 11:31 AM
This is from the DeviceConfig.log of the AMD machine. It gave me a 2 on my superduper singel core processor AMD Athlon 64 3700+. Thats not fair as it is more poverful than Intel P4 3 GHz.

1.This is for ATI X1600 + AMD Athlon 64 3700+
GPU: 3 GPU Memory: 3 CPU: 2 RAM: 4 CPU Speed: 2211 Threading: 1

2. This is for AMD HD 6670 + Intel Pentium 4 3 GHz
GPU: 5 GPU Memory: 4 CPU: 2 RAM: 4 CPU Speed: 2992 Threading: 2

3. Result with AMD HD 6670 + AMD Athlon 64 3700+
GPU: 5 GPU Memory: 4 CPU: 2 RAM: 4 CPU Speed: 2211 Threading: 1

If I move HD 6670 as intended, do you think I can raise the setting in the .sgr file to a 3 or 4 for case 3?

I solved my problem!!!

I have Windows XP 32 bits with 3 GB memory.

I did this change to get more memory for the game to get rid of the Error 12.

http://simswiki.info/wiki.php?title=Game_Help:Insufficient_Memory_Crashes#Step_3:_Allow_more_memory_to_applications

With this new graphic card AMD HD 6670 and newest drivers, 12.8, you can't do that change in boot.ini file!!!!

I did all of your recomendation including reinstallation DirecX drivers. When I tested DirectX with dxdiag I saw that Direct3D-acceleration wasn't active. The actvate button was dimmed out.
I then run 3DMark06 and it did not start and I get the error D3DERR_NOTAVAILABLE. After som googling I finally faund out the problem. The explanation is that 3D accelation takes more memory or it is a bug in the graphic drivers from AMD (again).

@redredwine, glad it helped you.

@Morphar, I did point out DirectX in my response did I not? Well, in any case, glad it's solved now.
You're still able to launch the game on a single-core machine? Mine took 1 hour to load the loading screen when I tested it with WA on patch 1.8/2.3 eons ago.

Last time I monitored CPU usage was on 1.36 I think and it did spike all the cores on my Quad-core machine and if the DeviceConfig.log and .sgr files are to be believed, they do have coding to take advantage of multi-thread-capable Processors, and that does show in the CPU usage as well.

Incidentally, my card model (an any other new cards as well) is still not listed in the .sgr files in Patch 1.39. So, this workaround is still applicable.

It's worth keeping in mind that hardware problems may be an issue. A few years ago on a new, high-power computer with a very good graphics card, I would get visuals freezing while playing The Sims. A couple of minutes after starting play the picture would start freezing for a few seconds, then it would jump and be okay for several seconds, then freeze again, etc. Picture was fine with every other application. After weeks back and forth with EA tech support, it turned out the fan in my graphics card was busted and it was overheating.

ellacharmed
11th Oct 2012, 4:52 PM
That's interesting, CmarNYC. Usually if a GPU has fan issues it would fail whenever a program utilizes the GPU's processor and need the fan to keep it cool. When this happened to me a few months back, I get BSOD crashes whenever I try to watch a video in VLC, or run benchmarks, or even Alt+Tab between multiple windows in quick succession.
In Sims game, this is characterized by graphical glitches like messed-up thumbnails, spikes, etc.

This guide is for when one don't have issues in any other programs outside the Sims. But I understand what you're cautioning folks about. It does help to cover all the bases, though.

Mainly out of curosity.
How does this affect if computer have switchable card?
My laptop have 6520G/7670M, the first is as might be understod the one intregrated on CPU
It looks like game use the 6520G one becuase it listed that in DeviceConfig.log but only as matched, i cannot change which it use since computer use crossfire, i can only set to high performance or power saving in ccc, high performance setting what i have understood should change to the 7670M one.
Adding the 6520M to GraphicsCards.sgr didn't change the game settings in any way, i might add though that they was proberly set to the settings for the 6000 serie as they where quite high.
So i'm abit confused.

(I hope this is the right area to post this)

After installing a new video card & a bigger power supply to my computer then experiencing better performance but not what I would have liked, I posted in the Technical Computer area for help. Before buying what I had bought for a video card, I had printed out the recommended cards from this site (by using the FAQ on that). To make a long story short, in that other thread a link was suggested to help my game recognize my new card:

http://www.modthesims.info/wiki.php...by%20the%20game

I did everything in the steps that above post said then loaded the game. It was then that my game began experiencing what was described in the "Cause" which is for the Options to have everything to the lowest. BEFORE I tried the solution in the above thread, my Options were normal.

And when I do load the game and get to the point of seeing the entire neighborhood where you choose a family to play, the neighborhood of course is a light blue with darker blues where perhaps a river might be. When I choose a family, the textures, etc are all low.

When I first had loaded the game & got the strange looking neighborhood, I logged out and went back into that file:

Computer/program files(x86)/electronic Arts/The Sims 4/Game/Bin

and removed the

GraphicsCards.sgr and GraphicsRules.sgr plus the two copies that I made from the instructions in that above thread. I loaded the game again thinking that it would remake the files (like if you remove the cache files, the game remakes them)

Nothing changed, still had the weird looking neighborhood view.

I put the files back in (which I had put on my desktop) and I'm still getting the weird neighborhood view & the options that I reset will not save.

I hate asking for help, but obviously I need help this time.


In my DeviceConfig.log mine says:


=== Graphics device info ===
Number: 0
Name (driver): ATI Radeon HD 4200
Name (database): Radeon HD 4200 [Found: 1, Matched: 1]
Vendor: ATI
Chipset: Vendor: 1002, Device: 9710, Board: 2ab1103c, Chipset: 0000

next step:

If you open GraphicsCards.sgr and search for 0x9710 (use your own Device ID#, of course), it won't be there. (It WAS there-see below)

card 0x95C0 "Radeon HD 4250"
card 0x9715 "Radeon HD 4250"
card 0x9710 "Radeon HD 4200"
card 0x95C5 "Radeon HD 4200 Series"


*sighs*




Here's a thought that I don't know if it would work or not since I can't seem to understand the above FAQ and the steps past what I've posted:

IF I were to:

*remove all my CC
*uninstall all my games
*re-install all my games
*put the CC back in
*load the game to play



Would it be possible that it might be okay? As far as the problem with not being able to save the OPTIONS? (I think I want to cry)

Sims 3 - Game Problems
Please go through this FAQ and follow the instructions, doing each step in order and not skipping anything:

Game Help:Sims 3 Game Problem
Most issues with the game can be resolved by following those steps.


/program files(x86)/electronic Arts/The Sims 4/Game/Bin?
If not a typo, can you tell me if Rabbitholes and multi-level curved Roads and multi-lane Highways exist in TS4? ;)

The DeviceConfig.log is for some other card: ATI Radeon HD 4200. Not the new GT 610 that you purchased.
If you noted the line with "Found: 1", so in essence, Sims 3 does not even know the hardware has changed!

Move the DeviceConfig.log, the Options.ini file to the Desktop, Game Help:Sims 3 Delete Cache Files and load the game. Or even better if you do step#3 of the Game Problem FAQ and rename the folder and let the game start over on a clean slate to test the new card. So, in the event anything goes wrong, your CCa nd Saves are backed-up.

Hey there

Thanks for this guide. I bought a brand new Radeon 7770 graphics card, and was tearing my hair out in frustration at my game running WORSE than before until someone pointed me in the direction of this thread.

I followed your instructions carefully, and I now can see all my trees and plants (I couldn't before), but it seems to be at the cost of paths and flooring. Paths now appear to be just a blurred block of flat colour rather than the nicely detailed brick or stone or whatever.

I'm wondering if I've missed something. I'm not sure what to do. I'm not really very technologically minded either :/


EDIT: Ahh never mind. I was having a middle-aged moment :/ It all works fine now... except the lag, which I seem doomed to have to cope with forever.

THANK YOU!

ellacharmed
23rd Oct 2012, 6:54 PM
Good to hear, @Neashaleigh!
Did you remember to refresh Game Help:Sims 3 Delete Cache Files and Thumbnails? The game may still be linking to the images from the previous GPU in the caches?
Have you also updated drivers? What was the previous GPU, by the way?

As for the lags, you've tried the world fixes? Check my profile page for the downloads for various EA premade worlds.
There's also the Game Help:Intermittent Freezes FAQ, if you haven't tried the suggestions in there.

A bunch of AMD cards updated in the 1.42 patch, but as you can see the red area only shows the top part for "ATI"; afraid Nvidia cards are still not current.

I got stuck in your tutorial on Sim Wiki with editing the "Graphic Rules.org" file. I use "Nvidia GeForce 410M" and I have no clue what model was before my card.

Belzader
4th Nov 2012, 2:39 PM
I use "Nvidia GeForce 410M" and I have no clue what model was before my card.
The GraphicRules.cfg have settings for 400 serie (4??)
So unless game haven't set all bars to minimum (no settings found) as default, you proberly won't see any diffrence by changing anything in it.

If you still wanto try to change you can use the settings for 2?0M (medium card setting), there's also settings for 3?0M (high card setting) so it's upto you which one to use, higher settings stress card more.
Though do the change under same pre-set = if you decide to use the ones for 2?0M place it there(medium card setting), for 3?0M place it there (high card setting).

I have a GeForce GTX 550 Ti. I did everything according to the wiki, and now it reads it all correctly, but when I load a vanilla game (patched to 1.42) the game is dark, like what happens after I alt-tab on my laptop. This has never happened before this patch on this desktop. If anyone has a suggestion, that'd be great.

ellacharmed
9th Nov 2012, 10:29 AM
@Lady Darkness,
if the name is already present, go by device ID#, as that is more accurate. What is the device ID# for your card as shown in the DeviceConfig.log file? And does it report "Found:0"? If not, your issue (whatever you're experiencing) is not related to this.

@masonn,
do you have switchable graphics?
Did you remove these files, so they would be generated anew after all the tweaks?
- DeviceConfig.log
- Option.ini

Edited: Alright, I managed to do everything now with help from my brother, but when I opened the game to test it said that I had an unrecognized video card. I looked at the DeviceConfig, and it said "Found: 1, Matched: 0". :| Do you know what I could have done wrong? Sorry to bother you.

I as well just upgraded to the Geforce GTX 550 TI. My info in device config: Name (database): NVIDIA GeForce GTX 550 Ti [Found: 0, Matched: 1].

I was able to update the first step but I am confused on the graphics rule piece. Am I looking for GTX 5? I do find this : or match("${cardName}", "*GTX 5??*") so do I need to rename anything ? Or am I looking for something else?

I have the same graphic card and the same problem as rachaelstar: in the DeviceConfig file I found "Name (database): NVIDIA GeForce GTX 550 Ti [Found: 0, Matched: 1]" but in the GraphicRules file there's this line or match("${cardName}", "*GTX 5??*")...what should I do?

@*BaBy'89*
@rachaelstar713

When game list a card as matched but not found, unless all the bars have the lowest setting (all the way to the left), there is no need change anything in the GraphicRules file as game has matched it towards a rule found in it.

The main reason ellacharmed made this tutorial was that the 7000 serie had no rule at all, so game set it to lowest possible, which basicly means that game belive card is not supported.

If i take the case with my laptop it have a 6520G which there aren't any rule for but it have a "main" rule for the 6000 serie (6???) so game match it towards that one.

So, what i'm saying here unless both of you don't have the default settings on lowest possible (unsupported card), there's no need to change anything in the GraphicRules file, as game has matched it towards the "main" rule for 5??.

I have a brand new stationairy computer which my husband built for me (I'm no computer wiz but he is) which should exceed the requirements for the game by far. The problem is that when I start the game and play for a few minutes, the screen turns black. No messages or anything, just suddenly black. The computer is still on so I have to crash it to restart it. I am very disappointed since I so looked forward to play the game on a really fast computer with lots of memory. I had an old laptop before that did not let me play the stylist career because of memory shortage. I wonder if anyone knows what to do? I guess it has to do with the graphic card, but I am not sure. The graphic card is a Sapphire Radeon HD7850 2 GB. The game lists the card as matched and found and the bars have high settings in game - but I don't get to see in detail because the screen turns black so fast.

Thanks,

@Cheezilla,
have you tried redoing it over again? If not, remove your edited files and revert back to the originals. Remove options.ini and DeviceConfig.log and start the game. Quit the game, and look in DeviceConfig.log and tell me the Device ID# and what the "Found: ?, Matched: ?" shows.

@rachaelstar713, @*BaBy'89* & EVERYBODY,
you guys need to tell me what the Device ID# and what the "Found: ?, Matched: ?" shows.
Guys, I don't have a database of all the cards in existence, what I find I use Google search. The GTX 550 Ti is not listed in the Cards list, not by its Device ID#. And manufacturers have different device IDs for the same card model.

And you all didn't state what ID# you've added and what "previous" rule you've used to copy+paste. I need to know all that information to tell if you had done things correctly or incorrectly.

Even better if you can show an image of the snippet of the edited portion of the file(s), so you don't even need to describe what you've done, we'll be able to see from the picture.

@capricce,
same request: what does the "Found: ?, Matched: ?" line show? You also did not mention what patch version you're on?
If it shows as "Found: 1, Matched: 1" and the Device ID# of "0x6819" is in the Card sgr file (as you have the same model I do, but different manufacturer), and as long as you're on 1.42, this is not the issue you're facing. Unless your device ID# is different?

For crashing issues, work through the Game_Help:Sims 3 Crashing Checklist.

And, as for exceeding system requirements, the game needs more than just a good GPU; the system need to have the trifecta of good CPU+RAM+GPU to exceed the recommended requirements. And until I see a DxDiag report to support the claim, I don't take reports of "exceeding system requirements" at face value, as most times, they do not.

I wanted to do this for my card, GeForce GTX 560, but the instructions were way too confusing for me and I gave up. I guess I'll just never play my game again unless EA decides to finally add my card. What are the chances of that actually happening?

Alright, I'm not sure what to make of this, but I followed this tutorial and it seemed to mostly work... However, in the deviceconfig file my GPU Memory is listed as a 1, and my new default settings (http://i15.photobucket.com/albums/a371/Oateo/Scr01_zps2fd5abed.jpg) are kind of all over the place.

In the GraphicsRules.sgr file, I searched "HD 6" and had 3 hits as in the tutorial. I copy+pasted each instance and edited it to match my card. So, the 3 different edited parts in that file now look like this:

@ShortyBoo, if you don't ask questions or seek help, how am I to know you're encountering issues and need help with the instructions? Just reporting you don't understand, but not tell me which part you need explanations on, is not helping anybody. :)

The edits look good, @PunkyBreester. :up:

Is that after removing the
- deviceconfig.log file
- options.ini file
after editing the .sgr files and before loading the game? Sometimes, the game does not refresh these files properly. Did you also explicitly click the Restore Default button?

Most times, I need to click on the Restore Default button to make the options refresh with the new sgr entries, to make sure the game is picking up the newly available rules for the added card.

By "removing" those files, do you mean letting the game generate new ones? I didn't do that at first, but I just tried it, and that made no difference. Yes, I did click the "restore defaults" button. Before that, my settings were set on what I'd manually changed them to before doing this tutorial (much higher settings), then after clicking that button they go all wonky. I have tried refreshing my caches, restarting the computer/game.. Still the same deal.

Have you updated to 1.42-1.48, PunkyBreester? Is this resolved for you on any of these patches? I saw the following entry in the GraphicsCards.sgr file:
card 0x6818 "AMD Radeon HD 7800 Series"

May I know why you're remaining on 1.39, if haven't updated?

PunkyBreester

I usually don't update until I get a new EP, mainly to avoid having to update all of my mods (as well as having time to read about any potential issues that each new patch might have).

I did just get Seasons and am now patched to 1.42, and I'm still having the same problem :/

I'm still having the same problem
Did you mention why or how you decide this is the cause of the issue? What is the issue that the game presented with? I mean, what was the initial problem?
Or, was it just because the Memory shows as having "1" in the log file? What should be the correct value? What is the actual HD 78xx model card that you have, and how much VRAM does it have?

Did you keep a copy of the DeviceConfig.log to verify the .sgr edits did change how the game recognizes the card? So, after making the edits, the DeviceConfig.log still show the same "=== Rating info ===" values, as before all the edits were done?

I posted a couple of days ago about the same problem. My deviceconfig file is empty except for the words options and default options. I am dual booting Win 7 32bit and Win 8 64 bit. The game plays fine on the Win 7 side except for memory problems. On the Win 8 side I have the same as Sierradane, the light blue screen with darker spots where water would be in the map view. The base game plays great and I can change graphics as is WA. As soon as I add another game I can not change anything and all of the settings are low. Advanced rendering cannot be enabled either. I have copied and pasted the deviceconfig from the base games file into the empty file. No help. I have uninstalled and reinstalled 2x. I just installed the Win 8 and upgraded to GeForce GTX 660 ti last week. My drivers are up to date and I have the latest Direct X. Thank you for any help.

@lschram55,
the sgr edits didn't help at all? Or the edits didn't "take"? When you reopen the .sgr files, are your changes there?

PunkyBreester
4th Feb 2013, 5:10 AM
I didn't have any specific initial problems, other than noticing that my default graphics settings were very low for what I expected. In fact, I don't entirely remember, but I might've only found this tutorial after googling something along the lines of "Radeon 7800 sims 3 settings".

From what I can gather, my card is a 7800 with 18146 MB. Here's a screencap (http://i15.photobucket.com/albums/a371/Oateo/Scr07c_zpsda073187.jpg) of my card info..

The "=== Rating info ===" values did change, but as you can see in the picture I linked in my first post, my default settings are still kind of suspect. Some are pretty high, while others are at the minimum setting. I assumed that since we have the same (or similar) cards, my new default settings would more closely resemble the ones at the end of the tutorial, and not be half & half like that.

ellacharmed
4th Feb 2013, 2:31 PM
You get that same exact settings, even now on patch 1.48? (1.42 have world installation issues in Launcher, and probably other Sims3Pack types as well. So you really shouldn't be using this version)
Even after clicking on the Restore Defaults button in Options? The sliders are still at that same position?
The patch did update to EA's default .sgr files, didn't it? Patching the game didn't prompt that you have "Invalid Errors"? And after patching, since the files are overwritten, all your previous edits were gone? And the game is now using whatever the rules are in .sgr files as EA had set them? Just confirming...

7800 with 18146 MBErm...I don't think so. I need the last 2 digits of the model number. The "AMD Radeon HD 7800 Series" can either be
- 0x6818 78?? (7870?)
- 0x6819 7850 (what I have, and what's showing in the FAQ)
And different brands and models by different GPU manufacturers have different VRAMs and clock speeds, which differs from AMD specs' sheet on their Specs pages.

From online search results, device ID 6818 could be HD 7870. But I still need to know the Brand and Model number to see how much VRAM it has. VRAM ranges from 512MB to 2GB. I don't think there's a GPU with almost 20GB VRAM in the market, yet. :) Unless, that's an error by the device driver software or the BIOS reports it wrong. Which would explain why you have all these issues. There's a miscommunication between the device driver software and the hardware.
What Catalyst Control Center version do you have? Did you get the device driver updates from AMD's site or the Manufacturer's site?
And do you have issues with this card outside of Sims? Watching movies, playing other games?

And the vendor ID = 1682, I deduce is XFX.
Which means your card is one of these - http://bit.ly/YOy1VO - which?
See that Memory Size row? It states 2GB.

If it is not, then I need you to confirm the Brand and model #, please. Or link to its product page here.

When I copied and pasted nothing took. I still could not see the map view or save a game other than the first game. When I tried to change options they just went back to the lowest setting. Now, the embarrassing part. I finally just decided to install Seasons thinking I had nothing to lose except time re installing. It worked, at least so far. I have only had time to play once but everything was clear and the option settings were set at high or medium and the map view is perfect. I have been one to not update patches because my internet is terrible and it takes hours, and that is if it stays connected all the way through the download. But apparently it is worth it. I will post again if the game goes back to bad. I'm just posting this hoping it may help someone else. Thank you for your time and help.

5th Feb 2013, 12:29 AM
Haha, thanks ellacharmed - I knew I wasn't finding the right info, but that's all that came up where ever I looked (device manager, dxdiag, catalyst control center...). I know I have the 7870, but wasn't seeing that number anywhere, so I just went with what was on the screen. My computer knowledge is pretty limited when it comes down to the actual components :/

I didn't get any errors after patching. Updating to 1.48 isn't really an option right now, though, because we have satellite internet where I live and there is a download limit.

My Catalyst version is 13.1. I got a disc in the mail for my drivers, and installed them from there. The disk is cracked and unusable now, though using the detection utility from AMD's site, it says I have the most current driver.

The only issues I've been having are slight glitches in Firefox, but I assumed that was from having too many tabs open or something like that.

I really hate to have to ask you this, but if the correct information isn't being displayed through dxdiag or Catalyst or anywhere else that I look, how am I supposed to find out exactly which card I have? (Sans opening up the tower and trying to lay eyes on it myself - I feel like that's pretty far out of my scope of experience/capability.) I bought my computer from ibuypower.com, and I'm trying to dig up a build list in the hopes that it'll have the exact model number. Even the packing list only says "XFX 7870 2GB VIDEO CARD". The pictures they have on their site don't look exactly like either of the ones on newegg. The only options they have are "AMD Radeon HD 7870 - 2GB" or "MD Radeon HD 7870 - 2GB - HIS IceQ - Cooler, Quieter". Since my Dad had final say and purchasing power, I'm not sure which one he ended up getting, so I'm hoping he still has that build list in his email somewhere.

Thank you so much for helping. I'm sorry that I'm kind of failing the simple task of knowing what card I have :rolleyes:

Edit: The build list isn't any more specific, and as it turns out, the picture on ibuypower is actually of the 7850 :faceslap: It looks closest to the first one on Newegg, though (FX-787A-CNFC), so if I was going to guess I'd say its that one. Hopefully, if I had the "Double D" version (really, AMD?), it'd say that on the build/packing list/website somewhere.

@lschram55,
glad to hear things got cleared up for you. I'll make a note on your thread that issue is resolved, than shall I?

@PunkyBreester,
Opening a casing's side panel involves only undoing 2 screws at the back. Just to see whether the GPU has one or two fans. Anyways, iBuyPower didn't ship to you all the boxes and booklets of all the individual components?

There's a utility though that can tell you the model number, and also confirm the amount of VRAM. Whenever is there not a tool to do anything? :) I completely forgot about this thing - http://www.techpowerup.com/gpuz/

"XFX 7870 2GB VIDEO CARD"
That does looks like it is the single-fan version. I'm sure if it is the dual-fans version, the model number would explicitly state that fact.
"Double D" :giggler: I didn't even notice that!

PunkyBreester
7th Feb 2013, 9:04 PM
Thank you, ellacharmed! Here's the screencap of what the utility gave me.

Actually, it seems like I've only had noticeable issues (outside of the game settings) during the past week... I have been away from home for a while, but I don't remember having glitches while web browsing before. And just during the past few days, 3-4 times I've seen my screen go black for about a second then come back up with a pop-up that says something like "The graphics driver crashed, but recovered." :wtf:

I'm starting to wonder if there were recent updates that caused some kind of conflict... Otherwise, I don't really understand why these problems are just now occurring (and I've only had this computer since Christmas).

Hi! I just got a new computer and while it worked great for a bit, it started crashing. The CLA said it was due to graphic devices not found. I believe I understand the first bit, but when I go to edit the GraphicsRules.sgr I'm not sure what to look for to edit. My card is AMD Radeon HD 7540D. What do I change? I'm probably making this harder than it really is. Any insight? Thank you!

Hello I got as far up too graphicsRules than I got completely stuck, I use Nvidia Geforce 610M and I have no idea where to go from there, I am in no form a computer person.

My device name is Intel(R) HD Graphics 4000. So I don't AT ALL know how to find it in the graphicsrules.srg file. I'm completely lost!
Also, in the graphicscard.srg file, should I be copy+pasting this line:
card 0x2A42 "Intel® Graphics Media Accelerator 4500"
to 0x0116 "Intel(R) HD Graphics 4000" ?

It also says [Found:1, Matched:1]

http://www.modthesims.info/wiki.php?title=Game_Help:TS3_System_Requirements suggests that a Nvidia Geforce 610 of any kind is not suited to the Sims.

If Intel HD 4000 is part of the Intel HD (core i series) then it isn't suited either. (And [Found:1, Matched:1] suggests that you don't need to do anything else to get the card to be matched to something the game recognizes, anyway.)

Ideally? Get a new graphics card before trying to play again. You are damaging it each time you play and over-stress it.

First, read http://www.modthesims.info/wiki.php?title=Game_Help:Your_Computer_is_Like_a_Car

Now: http://www.modthesims.info/wiki.php?title=Game_Help:Onboard_Graphics -might- be useful if you still want to try it. http://www.modthesims.info/wiki.php?title=Game_Help:Sims_3_Crashing might be useful as well. (And yes, you do want to go through the Game Problem FAQ first, in case something you copied over is causing the problem. Then go to the Crashing Checklist under Related Pages.)

I know it's impersonal to just send you to a bunch of FAQs, but honestly, there is nothing I can tell you that isn't in one of them.

Oh, and welcome to MTS. I'm sorry that your first posts have to be with a problem. :luff:

Hey guys,
I've been trying to do this fix and while I can seemingly do the first (GraphicsCards.sgr) part alright, the GraphicsRules part just isn't clicking in my brain.. I don't know which things I should be copying/pasting/editing or anything. I hate to be a bother, but if anyone has a moment, could they tell me what I need to add to my file to get my card working? Here's the info:

Name (driver): AMD Radeon HD 7640G
Name (database): AMD Radeon HD 7640G [Found: 0, Matched: 1]
Vendor: ATI
Chipset: Vendor: 1002, Device: 9903, Board: 06961025, Chipset: 0000

Just the line I could copy and paste into it would be great, as this just isn't registering for me. Thanks!

Also, do I need to do this for the files in the World Adventures folder, too?Based on the above info, paste the following into "GraphicsCards.sgr"; just below the "vendor "ATI" 0x1002" line
card 0x9903 "AMD Radeon HD 7640G"
"GraphicsRules.sgr" does not seem to need anything added since it already has an entry for "or match("${cardName}", "*HD 7??0*")"
Also, do I need to do this for the files in the World Adventures folder, too? No, just for the base game. That's the only one being read.


Device Key: Enum\PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_29C2&SUBSYS_2A6F103C&REV_02Your card is already in the .sgr files:
card 0x29C2 "Intel® Graphics Media Accelerator 3100"But at this point of time, it is too old. Which means the systems is also struggling to cope with the game, especially if you have it patched to 1.50, whether you have Seasons or not; because the patch has the Seasons-features included. The game crashing is an indication of this. Not due to the issue of the card being "Not Found".
Before you exclaimed "But it has always worked before!", please read the Wiki article that Ghost linked to called "Game Help:Your Computer is Like a Car". Hope that is sufficient explanation on why it is failing now.


This tutorial made no sense to me. I got stuck at Open GraphicsCards.sgr file.Which means what? You cannot open a file? Or cannot locate it or...?

"Unable to start game.

Device 0 cannot run this title.
No supported video graphics card detected. Please check your system hardware."

This is the error I keep getting when trying to launch The Sims 3 from any possible .exe

This has been happening ever since I uninstalled NVIDIA drivers from my PC. I have deleted them because I upgraded to an AMD card "Radeon hd 7850 twin frozr iii oc".

The game used to run before on my new AMD card... but once the NVIDIA drivers were gone it just decided to be difficult.

Things I have tried:


Tried re-downloading NVIDIA drivers but I can't install them because the installer doesn't recognise an NVIDIA device - rightly so.
Changing Options.ini to run Sims 3 in windowed mode.
Updated latest graphic card drivers and the Catalyst Control Centre
Turned off DEP for TS3W
Looked if Device Manager is still recognising my old card that isn't in the computer. My old car was not there, even with "View Hidden" option on.
Making a clean re-install (w/ registry cleanup)
Deleting some of the cache that modthesims told me to in one of the guides.
Followed these instructions: Getting the graphics card recognised (http://simswiki.info/wiki.php?title=Game_Help:Getting_new_graphics_cards_recognized_by_the_game) This guide sounds like a solution but my DeviceConfig is always blank! Even if I paste something in the DeviceConfig, when I try to run the game it goes blank.
Restarted the computer :P
Tried not to cry.
Cried.




Please help me :)
I have been trying to get this to work

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
EDIT:

I uninstalled all possible graphics drivers, both AMD and NVIDIA -> restarted the PC -> installed latest AMD drivers (CCC) -> it works! -------> my game crashes after a few minutes in the character creation screen :) FUN

The GPU 7850 is identical to what I had when writing the guide. So you can follow it exactly.
So, now that the game managed to start, did the DeviceConfig.log file get created? Or did the crash happen too soon?

If it is still happening after the sgr edits, revert to the original and try the edits again. Is it still a "Device 0" crash?
If it still crashed after you've retried, then go through the Crashing Checklist and start a new thread when you post the questions I asked. See my signature for the link. The CAS crash still points to DEP or probably corrupt thumbnails. You have renamed and now using a fresh set of User folders, right? No CC, no thumbnails, no *cache.package remain from the previous time the Nvidia card was used?

Vylhelm
13th Apr 2013, 9:47 AM
Yeah dude, after I made sure everything NVIDIA is gone and re-installed AMD stuff my game worked but crashed at the family creation part. All I had to do then was put DEP on again because I think my .exe has indeed changed at some point and I didn't realise.
Just for good measure, I followed your guide anyway, this time without fail because my DeviceConfig.log actually contained information (since I could actually run the game in the first place to create the file).

Everything is working just fine. I've played many consecutive hours and it's all good! :)

I have a feeling that my game is slowly getting a bit laggy (game stops for a second or two occasionally) the longer I play with one household. Overwatch has helped me tremendously but I feel that it's missing something and not resetting it. hmm oh well. it's not tragic! I can live/play :P

So, I was wondering if I should go through with the tutorial even though my deviceconfig rates my GPU as a 5.

http://i33.photobucket.com/albums/d65/smilz08/Capture.png (http://s33.photobucket.com/user/smilz08/media/Capture.png.html)

http://i33.photobucket.com/albums/d65/smilz08/Capture2.png (http://s33.photobucket.com/user/smilz08/media/Capture2.png.html)

I haven't had much lag or any crashes. The graphics, I feel, look good. But I was wondering if the game actually found my card, it would look better?

ellacharmed
18th Apr 2013, 3:43 AM
If it is not found in the database, and yet still rate a 5, it does that not make you wonder how come? What does the Option show? All on HIGH setting to the rightmost position on the sliders? Do you think that's safe? Or all LOW, and to the left?
If the card is found, there are some settings that are set higher and some lower, so the card does not have to work so hard. This is where we hear cases of people saying "Sims 3 blow out my card..." because Sims over-stresses it, unnecessarily.

If it is not found and the Options show settings that varies - not all on HIGH - then, it is your call.

I built a new computer for playng Sims 3. The processor is an AMD A10 5800K. It has integrated graphics, HD 7660D device code 9901. I also own a HD6670 that will later be used in cross fire mode with the HD 7660D.
The problem is now that as could be expected the graphics is not found in GraphicsCards.sgr. However it gets a GPU: 5 in DeviceConfig.log probably for the same reason as your answer to poster Ranalin.

"or match("${cardName}", "*HD 7??0*")"

The problem though is GPU Memory: 1.
GPU-Z says it is 512 MB.
DeviceConfig says: Texture memory: 32MB <<OVERRIDE>>
Dxdiag says it is Approximate 4GB.
It probably uses shared memory and I think it is worth more than a 1.

Suppose GPU-Z is korrekt and it's 512 MB can I change in GraphicsRules.sgr like this to force my gpumemLevelLow to gpumemLevelUber:

seti gpumemLevelUber 4
seti gpumemLevelHigh 3
seti gpumemLevelMedium 2
seti gpumemLevelLow 4

General - Integrated Graphics
The reason for your issue is that your computer doesn't meet the minimum requirements to play TS2/TS3.
In particular, you don't actually have a graphics card - you have integrated graphics, which is just a chip on your motherboard. Most laptops come with integrated graphics, as do some desktops; and while salesmen often claim that integrated graphics chips are just as good as real graphics cards, they're not.

Integrated graphics chips are designed for people who just use their computers to read email, type up documents, and play minesweeper - they are not suitable for high stress games like TS2/TS3. At the very least, playing TS2/TS3 with integrated graphics will mean the game looks terrible; at the worst, you could permanently damage your computer.
If you have integrated graphics, the other requirements - particularly minimum processor speed - go up to compensate. You can see the increases here (http://sims2wiki.info/wiki.php?title=Game_Help:System_Requirements), under "If you have a non-T&L capable video card...".

This FAQ contains tips on things you can do to improve your gameplay, and prolong the life of the integrated chip: Game Help:Onboard Graphics
This is MTS's recommended minimum system specs
for each EP/SP in The Sims 2: Game Help:System Requirements/MTS2 Recommendations

for The Sims 3: Game_Help:TS3_System_RequirementsBe aware that, even if you follow all the tips in the above article, you will probably have to upgrade or replace your computer to alleviate all problems.


The HD 7660D is an integrated chip, that's why it has no dedicated memory. It would be utilizing part of the RAM. And it should be added in the similar calibre cards - the seti cardLevel $cardLevelMedium - specs show it is slightly better performing IGP than Intel's.
You really shouldn't place the entry for this model in the uber sections - it is really not advisable. You cannot control a component by software if the physical hardware is not there. http://www.videocardbenchmark.net/gpu.php?gpu=Radeon+HD+7660D

The HD 6670 is really not that much better relative to other common GPUs, although it at least have GREENs in the SysReq. http://www.videocardbenchmark.net/gpu.php?gpu=Radeon+HD+6670

In dual mode: http://www.videocardbenchmark.net/video_lookup.php?gpu=Radeon+HD+7660D+%2B+6670+Dual&id=2249
But I'm not convinced EA's rules take dual-GPU Crossfire setups into consideration. They never did for Sims 2; and for Sims 3, those with dual-processor GPUs (like the old 4870 X2 or newer HD 7990) have been known to turn off one chip in order to play. Else they have crashes, or it won't start. But that was sometime ago, I don't know if AMD has improved their drivers so that this dual configurations is seen as one single GPU by the system, which is then recognized by the GraphicsRules.sgr. I don't have a definitive answer as I don't have them to test personally, just wanted you to be aware of the pitfalls.

The HD 7660D is not a chip integrated on the motherboard but on the processor chip itself forming the quad core 3.8 GHz APU 5800K processor. In Passmark it gets 1845,6 points in total.

If I compare 3D DirectX 9 graphics of the APU with the Intel HD graphic 4000 the fps is two times in simple and four times in complex test in Performance test.


According to AMD, two graphic processors can be combined:

AMD Radeon Dual Graphics capability – Combines two powerful AMD Radeon graphics processors to dramatically boost graphics and gaming performance


http://www.amd.com/us/products/desktop/processors/a-series/Pages/a-series-pib.aspx
My HD 6670 board have 1 GB dedicated DDR5 memory

According to FordGT90Concept at MTS the Sims 3 demands more CPU power than GPU power.
I have also now seen that the game uses one or maybe two cores. At least two of the four cores are "parked".

But my question is, what is the consequence of a too low GPU memory setting. Although the memory is shared it has a size. The graphic settings in the game are all at max on everything anyway.


Edit:

In your answer to Ranlin you said that he should add this line to the board list:
card 0x9903 "AMD Radeon HD 7640G"

...and then:

"GraphicsRules.sgr" does not seem to need anything added since it already has an entry for "or match("${cardName}", "*HD 7??0*")"

My 7660 must have been trapped by that line too. So what will the rating for GPU be for both of us?

Edit 2:
Oh I see, the boards that matches these names will be rated as "cardLevelUber" but you think my 7660D belong to the group of boards rated "cardLevelMedium". Well, I don't agree as it is integrated on the same chip as the processor. On the contrary I think.

if (match("${cardName}", "*HD 29?0*") or match("${cardName}", "*HD 36?0*") or match("${cardName}", "*HD 38?0*") or match("${cardName}", "*HD 4??0*") or match("${cardName}", "*HD 5??0*") or match("${cardName}", "*Radeon 5xxx*") or match("${cardName}", "*HD 6??0*") or match("${cardName}", "*HD 7??0*") or match("${cardName}", "*Processor*") or match("${cardName}", "*V77?0*") or match("${cardName}", "*V87?0*"))
seti cardLevel $cardLevelUber
seti isCardMatched true

After more research I see that I have an APU for Desktops:
AMD A10-5800K APU with AMD Radeon™ HD 7660D
http://products.amd.com/en-us/DesktopAPUDetail.aspx?id=44

Ranlin have an APU for Notebooks:
AMD A8-4500M APU with AMD Radeon™ HD 7640G
http://products.amd.com/en-us/NotebookAPUDetail.aspx?id=35

Both will be rated as cardLevelUber = GPU: 5.
It is quite a big difference between these two:

My:
Frequence: 3800 MHz.
Effect: 100 Watt.

Ranlin:
Frequence: 1900 MHz.
Effect: 35 Watt.

I think Ranlin's processor will bee overrated. What he and I can do is to move the string below to the correct group.

Move this string:
or match("${cardName}", "*HD 7??0*")

....for example to here to get cardLevelMedium = 3:

match("${cardName}", "*HD 24?0*") or match("${cardName}", "*HD 26?0*") or
match("${cardName}", "*HD 7??0*"))
seti cardLevel $cardLevelMedium
seti isCardMatched true

It is best to specify the series number. And perhaps the last letter too, since that is an identifiable 5-char long string. Make it
or match("${cardName}", "*HD 76?0D")

Yeah, when I answered Rinalin, I didn't do enough research as the 7xxx series is too new, and EA's rules in those files are really not that straightforward or easy to interpret.

That "boiler-plate" portion needs editing. That was way back when the chips were on the motherboard.

My graphics card is an AMD Radeon 6700 series. Ran this exact card with sims 3 beautifully on my previous VISTA machine. Bought a new computer (windows 8) installed card, and sims 3 graphics are all set to low except Trees and Visual Effects. But sim detail, mirrors, etc. Everything else is default low, which is not how it was on my VISTA. The game also startsup and is VERY dark. Daytime looks like nighttime. The problem is only solved (not dark, settings still on low) if I play in windowed mode, which is annoying. DeviceConfig.log originally showed:

=== Rating info ===
GPU: 5 GPU Memory: 1 CPU: 3 RAM: 4 CPU Speed: 2994 Threading: 3
Adjusted CPU: 3592 RAM: 8066 Adjusted RAM: 7554 Cores: 4
=== Graphics device info ===
Number: 0
Name (driver): AMD Radeon HD 6700 Series
Name (database): AMD Radeon HD 6700 Series [Found: 0, Matched: 1]
Vendor: ATI
Chipset: Vendor: 1002, Device: 68bf, Board: 31401682, Chipset: 0000
Driver: aticfx32.dll, Version: 8.17.10.1191, GUID: D7B71EE2-2BFF-11CF-9571-4A11BEC2C535
Driver version: 1191
Monitor: \\.\DISPLAY2
Texture memory: 32MB <<OVERRIDE>>
Vertex program: 3.0
Pixel program: 3.0
Hardware TnL: 1

So I added the device to the GraphicsCards.sgr as shown in the tutorial.(0x68bf AMD Radeon HD 6700 Series) Then it showed [Found: 1, Matched: 1]) I'm confused as to the next part. Is there anything else I'm supposed to do? The Graphicsrules.srg shows:

elseif (match("${cardVendor}", "ATI"))
if (match("${cardName}", "*HD 29?0*") or match("${cardName}", "*HD 36?0*") or match("${cardName}", "*HD 38?0*") or match("${cardName}", "*HD 4??0*") or match("${cardName}", "*HD 5??0*") or match("${cardName}", "*Radeon 5xxx*") or match("${cardName}", "*HD 6??0*") or match("${cardName}", "*HD 7??0*") or match("${cardName}", "*Processor*") or match("${cardName}", "*V77?0*") or match("${cardName}", "*V87?0*"))
seti cardLevel $cardLevelUber
seti isCardMatched true

So I don't need to add anything there, right? Is it normal that my Device shows as "68bf" as opposed to a 4 digit number? Running the game after changes made no difference in the problem I am having.

I have a similar problem to the above poster. I edited files and my card is now found:1, I did not edit the graphicsrules file as

or match("${cardName}", "*GTX 6??*")

is already in there. My settings are still set to low as default and cannot be changed by adjusting the sliders.

Hey, i followed the steps from the wiki page but in the "Open GraphicsRules.sgr file" I noticed there was HD 7 already in my computer, and yes i found 3 counts, so I did the copy+paste 3 times but instead of writing HD 7 I wrote HD 8.
When I finished all the steps I checked the data of the DeviceConfig.log file and it did said: Name (database): Radeon HD 4500 Series [Found: 1, Matched: 1]
But when I run the game it doesn't look any better, the screen looks darker than usual and I feel like crying TT-TT Is there a way to solve this?

Yesterday I decided to finally update my game but now my game won't recognize my video card. Any changes I make to the options don't save.
So, I tried your tutorial but the problem is that my DeviceConfig file is completely blank except for this:
=== Options ===
=== Default Options ===

I don't understand why this is happening. I didn't get a new graphics card. I have the Intel(R) HD Graphics (Core i3). This always worked before, it worked two days ago perfectly and I was able to have all of the settings such as sim detail on very high.

I have a NVIDIA GeForce GTX 650 Ti

This is my DeviceConfig.log file info:

http://i864.photobucket.com/albums/ab204/Tiki5872/Capture.jpg

I then located the GraphicsCards.sgr file and GraphicsRules.sgr file and copied and pasted with the new .orig extension.

http://i864.photobucket.com/albums/ab204/Tiki5872/Capture1.jpg

I kept the original sgr files for both in a backup folder. I then opened up the GraphicsCards.sgr.orig file and located what I thought would be the closest to my card. Though I could not find any Ti cards. I copied the highlighted one.
http://i864.photobucket.com/albums/ab204/Tiki5872/Capture4.jpg

Here is the one I added for my card

http://i864.photobucket.com/albums/ab204/Tiki5872/Capture5.jpg

And for the GraphicsRules.sgr.orig file, I left alone because I found a reference of "GTX 6??*" As seen here
http://i864.photobucket.com/albums/ab204/Tiki5872/Untitled-2.jpg

However, I know I did something wrong because when I start up my game, it say's unrecognized card, and when I went to look at the DeviceConfig.log again, it says "options Default options" and nothing else. I put back the original sgr files and my game started with no issues. I would however like to get the game to recognize my video card. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Sorry for the delay guys. My focus has been pulled in multiple directions, lately.

@RawrFizz & @tanknix,
it is up to you if you want to use EA's settings for Uber.
Originally the first few cards listed on Uber level are the HD 69xx and GTX 69x series. If we stricly follow the GPU hierarchy, both of your cards, the HD 6700 & gtx 660 are a medium-range level, ie under "cardLevel $cardLevelHigh". But then again, EA lumps the Nvidia GTX, GTS and GT all under "cardLevel $cardLevelUber", when they are actually of different classifications. Due to not knowing any better or sheer laziness, I cannot say. Plus, now I noticed that there's 2 "$cardLevelMedium" entries...

@michel.le,
Please post the DeviceConfig.log report excerpt (the part as shown in the FAQ). I need the Device ID so I can determine if the DeviceConfig.log is also getting confused. ;)
What is your actual card? If you truly have the "HD 4500 Series", the log returning a "Found:1" result is correct. And your issue is not due to this cause, ie your card is found.
Your issue maybe an outdated driver (which I know AMD/ATI has discontinued) as this model is now deemed a "legacy" model. It could also be that the Advanced Rendering option is not enabled? Finally, the bad news is that the card may now be too old to cope with Sims 3 on current patches and the latest packs. Other than dark screens, can the game run? It loads without crashing, etc? If you have not already done so, and you still want to troubleshoot playing Sims on this machine, you should create your own Help thread as the cause is out of the scope of this one.

@Alexbaybee,
it should work for switchable graphics if Sims is using the dedicated one during gameplay. Which card is showing up in DeviceConfig.log?

@FabulousZombie,
since you have your own thread, I'm ignoring this post. :)

@Bhallid,
that is the problem with an onboard graphics. The game is on borrowed time from the start. The time is just ticking down to a day that it would stop working. Read
- Game Help:Your Computer is Like a Car
- Game Help:Onboard Graphics
Unless you have dual, switchable graphics?

@demon_puppy,
what patch version are you running? Can you provide the full path to the location where you looked?

@Tiki,
The entry in the GraphicsCard.sgr should have the "0x" like so card 0x11c6 "GeForce GTX 650 Ti"
You do not need to edit the GraphicsRules.sgr file; see my reply to @RawrFizz & @tanknix above.

Thank you for the reply ella! And I hit myself over the head for not noticing that! I did add the "0x" infront of the device number and it did work. It no longer gives me the message of unrecognized card. However all the default settings in the game are now set to the lowest settings on everything and the setting for showing detail lots is set to one and will not let me change it. I looked in the DeviceConfig to see if it found my card and it still says "Options. Default Options". Is there something else I should be doing that I am not? Thanks for all your help! It is greatly appreciated!!

Have you removed the Options.ini file and force the game to recreate a fresh one? And then be sure to click on "Restore Defaults" in the Options screen (graphics tab), or tweak something, go out to the gameplay screen, Save, exit to Main Menu, reload Save. Then, "Restore Defaults" again. Any difference?

Or you may need to Quit and reload a couple of times (also after regenerating the Options.ini file). Sometimes, this edits take a couple of game loads to kick in. Just another one of those EA idiosyncrasies.

Hello! I have a new HP Touchsmart 15 with an NVIDIA GeForce GT740M. My problem started cos my game crashed and CLA told me it was a graphics card issue, so I went to look at my DeviceConfig. and it said I was on an Intel card. When I followed the tutorial word for word (all the way down to the clearing of my caches, only then did the "your graphics card can't be found" error pop up. My DeviceConfig was completely blank after following the tutorial. I just put my original files back in to force the DeviceConfig to generate info and this is what's showing:

OK, I removed the Options.ini file and let it create a new one. I went into game and everything was still on the lowest settings. Clicking "restore default" did nothing, so I changed one setting up to medium, went to gameplay saved and went to main menu. When I loaded that saved game, all the defaults where back to the lowest setting, even the one I had changed. I restarted the entire game 5 times to see if the change would take, and that did nothing. All the settings where still on the lowest. I also checked the "defaultconfig", and it's still showing "options, default options".

When I loaded that saved game, all the defaults where back to the lowest setting, even the one I had changed.This tells me that there's some permission issue on the file that the game cannot re-write it once it is created. Test with new user folders. Thus, you need to create a new game, mess around with the Options, Save & Quit; then reload.

When I went in to try to create a new game, the world looked all white. It let me choose a family and I wen into game mode everything looked ok, but once I went into options and tried to change the graphics settings, the game completely froze up on me when I clicked on the accept changes. I had to ctrl alt delete to end the Sims game. I am thinking maybe this is not going to work for me for some reason.

@xoxoC,
Oooh! I'm so jealous! Is that a new laptop with a Haswell Processor? Alas, any onboard graphics is still going to use "Shared Memory" and has no "dedicated memory" of its own, no matter how new and shiny it is. So you have to make sure the game is switching to the Nvidia GT740M during gameplay. This might help Guide: Two Graphics Cards? How to make Sims stop using the integrated one

And when you do the "Getting new graphics cards recognized" guide you have to check that the GT 740M is the one listed, not the Intel HD.

@Tiki, this indicates something is wrong, indeed. When I went in to try to create a new game, the world looked all white...the game completely froze up on me ... I had to ctrl alt delete to end the Sims game...Restore the Orig .sgr files and test again with new user folders. If it still happens, you need to uninstall the last game you installed or patched.

Example:
- If you last patched (ie installed 1.55 from 1.54 after installing IP first), you need to uninstall the base game and repatch to 1.55.
- If you last installed IP (after patching to 1.55 first), then you need to just uninstall and reinstall IP.

If both of those don't work, and uninstall base+IP and reinstall+repatch.
Now, last resort when the above don't work is a FULL uninstall of all Sims 3 stuff, including Origin if you have it.

@glassgirl,
you have a bigger issue than just having a card that the game don't recognize. I've split your post off to its own thread.

I replaced the .sgr.orig files with the original .sgr files and everything is fine again. I was able to start a new game with no issues and all looked good. Ah well, I guess maybe I have an oddball situation here. I guess I should not complain, my graphics look good and I don't really have any issues. I just wanted the game to recognize my graphics card.

Managed to fix everything. The two Graphics files had a wrong ending (.sgr instead of .srg and I also added the 0x in front of the ID. Original problem can be seen in the spoiler below.


Hello there!

First of all, this is a really great guide, but I still have a problem.

I have a fully updated DirectX, the newest graphics card drivers, and have a Geforce GT 525 M.

Furthermore, I have all addons installed and have the game running on patch 1.55

So, follwing your guide, I edited the files like this:

My Deviceconfig log is empty now (I deleted it and started the game afterwards), but I am certain that I have copied the correct card ID.

I have marked the parts I edited with bold writing.

Oh and one more thing: Deleting my config file completely messed up my game. It still started, it created a new Config file, but it didn't save any changes I made.
Also, now I get the message on startup that my graphics device cannot be read, which I've never had before.

Hi. This might be a stupid question, but here it goes.

I have looked through the GraphicsCards file, and cannot find anything that resembles my graphic card's name or I just don't know what to write.

The DeviceConfig says the following:

=== Graphics device info ===
Number: 0
Name (driver): ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5650
Name (database): ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5650 [Found: 0, Matched: 1]
Vendor: ATI
Chipset: Vendor: 1002, Device: 68c1, Board: 036e1025, Chipset: 0000
Driver: atiu9pag, Version: 8.14.1.6099, GUID: D7B71EE2-2B81-11CF-4664-6F23A1C2C535
Driver version: 6099
Monitor: \\.\DISPLAY1
Texture memory: 2800MB
Vertex program: 3.0
Pixel program: 3.0
Hardware TnL: 1

I just can't find anything that resembles the mobility radeon - is that because it isn't important? And I read something about integrated graphic cards - is mine one of those?

Please help and thanks :)

Isn't that interesting? All the Mobility models are really really old!

card 0x68c1 "ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5650"@Itzen,
copy and paste the above below the first line that says "vendor "ATI" 0x1002" in the "GraphicsCards.sgr" file. You may want to add spaces to line it up with the rest if it is not indented.

The "GraphicsRules.sgr" does not need editing. But if we are to remain true to the GPU hierarchy (http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/gaming-graphics-card-review,3107-7.html), this card is not of an "UBER" level calibre card. But a "$cardLevelMedium". However I don't want to add complexity to the FAQ by requiring folks fine-tune the Graphics Rules. Which would also introduce higher chances of user-errors. So until EA edits these files themselves, try to play on lower settings and for shorter periods per game session. Because the current UBER rules would mean, this GPU would be worked hard beyond its capabilities when the game is running.

I asked this at the official forum but I trust I'll get quicker/better replies here so I'll give it a shot. ;)

So I got a brand new computer and I had been getting crashes left and right. After getting help at the Sims Daily it seems like the card is too new and the game doesn't recognize it. I've been following all these steps but I am stuck at the GraphicsRules file. Could anyone please help me with this? My card is a GeForce GT 740M but I am so very confused as to what to replace on this file. There are so many NVIDIA options I have been staring at the file for far too long unable to figure it out.

Also does it matter where I add the card number (0x0416 etc...) on the GraphicsCards file? I would rather get help with that too and make sure I have it right if it is not a big problem.

I'm not sure I did this right... I edited the GraphicsCard file, but it looked as though I didn't have to edit the GraphicsRule file...

I have a GeForce GTC 660 card, but the 0x____ was different than what was in the Card file. It was 11c0, so I added 0x11C0 ________. When I opened the Rules file, it seemed that I didn't have to add the 6?? line because there was one already there? There were multiple GTX 660 cards in the Card file, so I didn't edit the Rules file. I'm not sure if I should have edited or not...

It seems this topic has been inactive for a little while, but if anyone sees this and can help, I'd greatly appreciate it. I'm trying to load my game right now, but I have a black screen and it says it's not responding. Which is normal for this computer. Usually it loads after a little waiting. If it happens to not load at all, then I'll put the original files back in the Bin folder until I can make sure I'm doing this properly.

Edit
I used my original files and the game never loaded. I should have mentioned that I have to bypass the launcher because for some reason it fails to load. That's an issue I was working on, but now that the game won't load at all, I think I need to uninstall and reinstall. By that time, maybe I can do this properly. If I'm not familiar with something, I usually mess it up, haha. But if I get more help and guidance, I'll be able to do it right.

Edit
So I've reinstalled my game (all EPs and Sps) and my graphics are defaulted to the higher settings. I'm assuming that I don't need help anymore because if the game wasn't reading the new card, the settings would be lower. I clicked Restore Defaults and it seems that the default is high. :)

Hi. I am in need of some help.

My game has recently started crashing a lot. Lately I can't play at all. The crash analyzer tells me: Warning: Graphic Device(s) Not Found in Database 0x11c2 "NVIDIA GeForce GTX 650 Ti BOOST"

I have tried following your guide here: http://simswiki.info/wiki.php?title=Game_Help:Getting_new_graphics_cards_recognized_by_the_game
Unfortunately I get lost pretty quickly. Could you be more specific as to what I need to change for this card? I have no idea. Apparently the 650 is in the list, but not the Ti Boost.

Also is this even the problem? My Device Config Says this:

I'm desperate for help here. Thanks

UPDATE: Since this thread seems somewhat abandoned I did try to solve this myself. I edited the graphicscards.sgr file only, and it seems to be finding it now. It was editing the other file (graphicsrules) that confused me so I skipped it.

Game isn't crashing right now, but it could be because I used MasterController to reset everything in town. Hard to know. I'll update later if it starts crashing again.

UPDATE: The problem was custom content. My apologies.

i have followed your tutorial on how to get the game to recognize my graphics card...but i am having a hard time finding the files to change with the orig extension. That's because you have to rename it to have the .orig extension. The original files have .sgr extension. And the device 0x9992 is not in the .sgr files; even with patch 1.57 installed. So you do have to add the line(s) yourself. The freezing issue may be exacerbated by that weak APU processor in the laptop. Coupled with the integrated GPU AMD Radeon HD 7420G, the game is not going to run well on that machine. If you need more hand-holding to edit the sgr files, I'll be around these 2 weeks.
Also does it matter where I add the card number (0x0416 etc...) on the GraphicsCards file? Yes, of course it does. Would you give someone's salary to another person, especially if they have different roles, responsibilities and capabilities? :) You need to put it under the correct vendor, but within that vendor's section it won't matter. But it is easier to search for it if it is arranged in the sorted order that EA has established; in case you need to open the file and edit it again. If you need more hand-holding to edit the sgr files, I'll be around these 2 weeks.
It was 11c0, so I added 0x11C0 ________. When I opened the Rules file, it seemed that I didn't have to add the 6?? line because there was one already there? The 0x11c0 card is still missing. If it was never added and the Default setting is at High, means the game is forcing it to work beyond the card's capabilities. Seems this is the default with patch 1.5x and Island Paradise games. Pushing a GPU pass its limits might shorten its lifespan because it is forced to work harder. Just like when you force yourself to run further and faster, you get tired faster than when you jog at a leisurely pace as per your fitness level.
UPDATE: The problem was custom content. My apologies. Glad you managed to resolve things by yourself, just the same.

Hi, I had a similar problem to xoxoC in that only the integrated graphics card was being detected. However, after I followed the tutorial you linked, NVIDIA says the new card is being used but the DeviceConfig says the Intel one is still being used. I'm using a GeForce 750M, if that helps, but DeviceConfig is still saying Intel(R) HD Graphics 4600.

@Shashoona,
did you remember to remove the previous DeviceConfig.log file? Sometime, the settings are not refreshed after just one reload of the game. Even better if you use a clean user folder to test.
By the way, which option did you use to make sure the Nvidia card is the one in use? Disabled it in BIOS or just tweaked Nvidia's Control Panel to set the discrete GPU for Sims 3?

I did delete the config file, and the one that replaced it was also using the integrated card. I changed cards by tweaking Nvidia's control panel. Was that wrong?

Also, am I right in saying that these issues with my graphics card are what's causing my screen to get darkened in fullscreen mode?

Aye caramba, so that was my problem all along! No wonder the ID numbers looked so weird. Thanks muchly!

(Edit)
I followed the tutorial you linked. NVIDIA says the new card is being used but the DeviceConfig says the Intel one is still being used. This is really confusing o_O

Troubles ahead! I already made a topic about that in the sims 3 forums and found another person with the same trouble. All of us have intel hd 4600 and GeForce series 7 (xoxoC - 740,Shashoona - 750, me - 750, 4th person - 780 I think).

Looks like there is something new about managing switching cards. Everything is set up in Nvidia Panel, nvidia icon in the taskbar says it's running the sims 3, but in deviceconfig it only says intel (Found 0, Matched 1). I made some testing and game reacts to changes in Nvidia Panel, so it is indeed run by GeForce not intel.

And all would be OK if I did not encounter the game crashing due to unsufficient graphics capability. I'm lost.

I already spend hours on nvidia tech chat, have beta drivers, tweaked some settings in programs I didn't know they even exist (as advised by nvidia tech guys). Nothing.

I uninstalled intel drivers (had them from acer website) and replaced them by those from intel website (newer). Nothing.

Oh, and every time I change something I let the game generate new deviceconfig file. And it always says the same...

I would disable this stupid intel in BIOS, but that's not possible in Acer BIOS. And turning off intel by Device Manager results in both cards not working (but that is as it always was, my previous laptop did the same, and it had integrated GF 9100 and dedicated GF 9600).

I can provide screenshots of my settings and results of my tests (why I think game is run by geforce not intel) - it is very visible. So why this game won't even detect GeForce? :cry:

:help:

Those with dual GPUs from the newer generations / models, do you guys add both of the GPUs in the sgr files or just the dedicated one?

If you cannot disable the Integrated via BIOS, means the manufacturer has installed a BIOS that turns off that feature. There are usually hacked versions out there that someone has uploaded, but you use it at your own risk. Not to mention, the warranty may be void.
But then again, if the OEM gets lots of complaints on their forums or the blogoshpere is loud about condemning this "feature", they would sometimes offer the new BIOS on their support pages, albeit it may be hidden and difficult to find. Because disabling the Integrated means their battery won't last for the length it was advertised for.

I'm sorry I can't be of more help in helping with this. I don't have a laptop with dual GPUs to help diagnose or do experiments. Well, I don't have a laptop, period.
(Anyone who plans to upgrade and not needing their old laptop anymore and wants to donate to the cause, please get in touch! ;) )

The thing is, I'm not sure if I know the Device ID for the dedicated one. Deviceconfig is not telling me this, so I just searched in the Device Manager and have something, that may be it, but it doesn't have to.
Do you think that adding it may help? Deviceconfig does not see this card at all.

I have a Toshiba Qosmio X870-BT3G23 laptop that uses 2 Video Adapters and also uses Nvidia Optimus Tech:
- Intel HD Graphics 4000
- Nvidia GTX 670m

The DeviceConfig file is only showing the Intel adapter and Graphicscards SGR file in Sims 3\Game\Bin is not listing my Nvidia adapter at all. What can I do?
I tried using Nvidia Control Panel to make game use the Nvidia adapter, but no change to Deviceconfig file... Please help if possible and thanks...

Hello there,

I'm hoping that editing the graphicsrules file will help with the crashes I'm having, but my deviceconfig lists only my onboard GPU under graphics device info and not the dedicated. Switchable graphics is enabled with ts3w.exe set to use the high performance GPU.

Samsung ATIV Book 4 with Intel HD 4000 and AMD Radeon, which originally was listed in device manager as 8750M but after a driver update says 8600/8700M

Just wondering if you'd seen this before or have some ideas, or if it's likely to be an actual hardware problem.

Thanks

Hey there,

So, esentally I have read through a majority of this thread and I'm still quite confused concerning my own problem. I see, however, that many people have had similar issues as I, but their fixes just aren't working.

My game is all updated and everything and I've only made minimal adjustments to my .sgr files (i.e. Removing Glowing From Objects (http://www.simified.com/the-sims-3/tutorials/removing-glowing-from-objects/), and that's it. My .sgr files all have the notepad icon (http://31.media.tumblr.com/34aca81976f53730c976c2425ffef32c/tumblr_mtu6y9fSkI1r3qfj5o1_1280.png) on them unfortunately, but they're still .sgr files so that's not an issue, right? I only mention this because the new Graphics Guide you have posted mentions .sgr files), but when I enter the game, all my settings are at '0' and refuse to change. I can't even play the game, period.

I entered my devicecontrol.log file, and I noticed I only have the words 'option' and 'default options'. This means that the Sims 3 is using my onboard graphics, right? I know I have a NVIDIA integrated card on my computer, but I think it clocked out a while ago in terms of time. Anyway, I deleted the devicecontrol.log file and options.ini file, but neither of them are re-spawning, so I'm at a loss (I still have the originals on my desktop, but why isn't my game re-generating these files?). I also checked my BIOS to see if my PC was running my current device, and it was.

That device is:

DDI Version: 11
BGRA Supported: Yes
Driver Attributes: Final Retail
Driver Date/Size: 12/19/2012 16:08:04, 1151488 bytes

So, truth be told, I'm not really sure where to go from here. I know my card can run the sims, but it isn't on the GraphicsCard.sgr file. Should I just follow the rest of the guide and slap it in there? I stopped at the DeviceControl.log issue because I figured something was wrong.

Thanks in advance!

EDIT: So I attempted to follow the guide, but I have a 6700 card. It wasn't on the list, but I did, however put it there. When I entered the GraphicsRules.sgr file to try and replace the lines (as the guide stated), there were already lines suggesting that the 6??0 series was acceptable. I'm not sure if I should still change these, and if so, with what? Additionally, my Options.ini and DeviceControl.log came back, but when I attempted to enter the game and play in a new town (after it took forever to load), everything was black save for a few buildings. My game is a mess, haha.

Hi I tried to follow the instructions found here http://simswiki.info/wiki.php?title=Game_Help:Getting_new_graphics_cards_recognized_by_the_game I have a geforce GTX 680 nvidia card. I tried to edit my graphics cards.sgr file. I opened it and I scrolled down until I found a likely graphics card and I pasted my geforce 680 over top (not sure if I'm using correct terminology) and then I saved to desktop as per your instructions. When it came time to put that .sgr file back into my bin it's saved as a text file It wont paste over top of the graphicscards.sgr because that one is not a text file. I don't know how to save as a .sgr file. I'm sorry for not explaining this properly but I'm having a hard time understanding this procedure.
And when it came to editing the graphicsrules.sgr file I think I found my graphics card in there so I don't think I had to do anything to that file.
I have had this card installed since the spring but only started experiencing crashing in September. I really don't think the crashes are related to the graphics card not being recognized but I thought I would try this anyway. I play my game with all settings as high as they can go. I've been playing like this since the spring and, like I said, my game only started crashing two weeks ago.
Thank you for whatever advise you can give me.

I tried following the help file on this subject however I'm getting Found: 1, match: 0 and I am seeing my graphics card in the .sgr file it's an nvidia 210 with newest driver as of September 19th and hoping this is the cause on my lack of townies issue

I have a compatible graphic card an AMD Radeon HD 6770m but I have the same problem Found:0 Matched:1 I tried doing what you did but I can't seem to find a Gam folder or a Bin folder in my Sims 3 folder at all, I tried to run a search everything...it just isn't there?! what can I do?

I don't expect everyone to read every single post on this thread, but I had hoped at least my posts are read so you'd know what sort of questions I keep asking over and over. It gets tiresome if I have to repeat myself for every new poster's post, so I've edited both the wiki and post#1 with additional information on how to find the dedicated GPU's info if you have a dual-graphics setup, and the questions I generally need answered when you post with the questions of what IDs to use or what lines to edit. I cannot answer those if I don't know what the IDs are in the first place.

So, those who still currently need help, please could you answer the questions in your reply?


@witchwq, @PubertyBarbie, @RGirl,
if you still need help, I need the patch number you're on at this time and the IDs for the GPU(s), and basically to answer the questions in post#1, please.

@RGirl,
in addition, what do you use to edit the sgr files? Notepad? To not have the .txt extension, you would need to click on the dropdown menu for the Save as type and choose All Files (*.*) instead of Txt Documents (.txt). Sorry, I forgot to mention this in the guide since I don't use Notepad anymore. Mainly because of this problem. Creates havoc when I forgot to swap that setting, I can tell you. It has been added now.

@ladywizard,
nvidia 210, huh? You should know that a weak GPU is almost usually paired with a weak CPU (processor). Those 2 may be the reasons why townies generation is "choked" in your gameplay. That is by design. The game is coded to generate Sims and Story Progression actions/activities based on the computer's capabilities. Oh! And do you know that this card has ALL REDs in our SysReq (link in my signature). It is not recommended that you play Sims 3 on this computer, to be honest.

@NadaH,
did the installer create a shortcut to the Desktop or the Start menu when you installed the game?

First of all, thank you so much, ellacharmed, for all your support with graphics issues.

I'm having a really weird bug here, the identical problem is described in this thread: http://www.modthesims.info/showthread.php?t=497783

If I set all the options to high, nothing changes from medium or low setting for lighting and shadows and for trees. The others seem to work. I've done a full clean uninstall, reinstall, changed Nvidia options, tried different drivers, cleared caches and options.ini before each game load, edited GraphicsCards.sgr to include mine, still no change. The strange thing is though, sometimes, randomly it all works fine. On two game loads in the last 24h the graphics were perfect, and I didn't really change anything before or after.

All my specs and pictures of the glitch everything are in this thread I posted: http://www.modthesims.info/showthread.php?t=516224

I would so appreciate it if someone could please help me.

All settings on highest:

Since you have a separate thread, and it appears that the issue is not with the Editing of the sgr files directly (i.e not within the scope of this one), I'll answer you in the other thread, @mangoprawn.

Hi,

I'm also having an issue with the game saying it does not recognising my graphics card ( nvidia geforce gtx 765m), however my game issue is that the world when zoomed out appears blue/grey with no visible lots, just a land of blue. When you enter your home lot and are not in the 'world view' it is fine. Will this be solved by your tutorial?

After following the tutorial I found that my deviceconfig file says:

=== Options ===
=== Default Options ===

That is all that is written, what should I do? Copy and paste what should be there?

Thank you

ellacharmed
23rd Dec 2013, 5:55 PM
Your deviceconfig.log file is totally blank? Has the game successfully loaded at all? What world is that blue-gray glitch happening on?

What is the base game's patch version? Game Help:TS3 Patching Find Gameversion
Do you have dual GPUs? Have you made sure Sims 3 is using the dedicated one from the link above?
Those with dual GPUs, do you add both of the GPUs in the sgr files or just the dedicated one?
If you need guidance on what strings to add where, please ready the Vendor and Device IDs by locating them from the various methods mentioned in the guide. And include both information in your post.

I may need you to post Game Help:System Specs, if you don't know or cannot find info about your hardware.

Sorry for the delay in replying, yes all my deviceconfig has is:

"=== Options ===
=== Default Options ==="

Literally that is it.

Yes the game loads, I can play it (on the lot) for half an hour or so before an error occurs and closes the game.

The glitch is on every world that I have, rivers are defined by a different shade but other than that the world is blue/grey, the options, task bars etc are all fine.

1. Base game patch version - 1.26.89.013002, am currently downloading 1.63.5.0240 and will install manually as the origin updater didn't work.
2. I have a single dedicated GPU
3. Only one to chose
4. Device Key: Enum\PCI\VEN_10DE&DEV_11E2&SUBSYS_119D1043&REV_A1

Vendor ID - 10DE Device ID - 11E2

Changed graphicscard.sgr - card 11E2 "Geforce GTX 765M"

Replaced graphicsrules.sgr - match("${cardName}", "*GTX 7??*")

I hope this is what you need:

Remove the deviceconfig.log file before you next load the game.
And yes, that GPU is not listed in the SGR file in my 1.63.5 game folders, let alone in 1.26's.

Changed graphicscard.sgr - card 11E2 "Geforce GTX 765M"

Replaced graphicsrules.sgr - match("${cardName}", "*GTX 7??*")The above: don't Change or Replace, but ADD. They are not present to be changed or replaced. But I'd use the below, my changes in bold.
Add to graphicscard.sgr, above the 650M entry (i.e. follow what is stated in the Card Name)
- card 0x11E2 "GeForce GTX 765M"

Add to graphicsrules.sgr, after the GTX 7?0* entry
- or match("${cardName}", "*7?5M*") <with space before next or>

Ah thank you, oops! Didn't realise that.

Deleted the deviceconfig file and it has reappeared exactly as it was.

Is Sims the only resource-intensive game you play? Can you watch HD movies fine?
Can you take a screenshot of what you're seeing? So, we can have a frame of reference? Or it might trigger someone else's memory if they have seen it before...

Time to check drivers and other stuff, please post Game Help:System Specs. Oh! Have you worked through the Crashing Checklist? Link's in my siggy.
If it is a deeper issue than simply GPU not being recognized, we might need to move you off this thread and into your own Help thread.

In the meantime, I'll research on this "9600.winblue_gdr.131030-1505" stuff.

Hi I managed to install the new patch manually as the game installer didn't work and everything seems to be resolved now!!!!

I haven't changed any of the files from what we discussed, so hopefully that's helping out too. But so far no more problems to report.

Thanks for your help :)

Hello, I have a big problem with the sims 3 recognize my Nvidia GT 750m graphic card.
When I look in the deviceconfig it shows :
Number: 0
Name (driver): Intel(R) HD Graphics 4000
The dxdiag show the same card.

So I tought that the card was new, but that was not the problem because I walked tru this guide : http://modthesims.info/wiki.php?title=Game_Help:Getting_new_graphics_cards_recognized_by_the_game
After that there was no change. I already changed to the powerfull Nvidea processor in the Nvidia controlpanel but that doesn't help to.

I hope that you can help me, because I can't play the game with the intel GPU because the game freezes all the time.
Thank you for your time, and sorry for my English its not the best haha.

@klavertje13,
I can't help if you don't give me the Device ID of your GPU. Or, if you don't tell me what line you added. Or attempted to add.

@mahilum_mariacristina,
you have ensured that Sims 3 is using the Nvidia and not the Intel? In other words, followed the "Two Graphics Cards?" guide?

Is this the line you added to GraphicsCards.sgr?
card 0x1292 "GeForce GT 740M"

or match("${cardName}", "*7?0M*")The above line already appears in GraphicsRules.sgr, and would have set the settings to "$cardLevelHigh", so you don't need to edit this. Unless the laptop gets really really hot, then you might want to explicitly add the "GTX" and "GT" qualifiers (instead of a "*" wildcard) to differentiate the High from the Medium, by adding a separate entry to the Medium section. Which, according to GPU specs hierarchy, is where a GT 740M fits most. You can use the 4xx and 5xx series as reference, to see how EA does it. But, EA lumps them (GT vs GTS vs GTX) all in Uber which I disagree with...

Note that the DeviceConfig.log may still show the Intel is in use. But if the Nvidia Control panel is already set, and you can confirm it while Sims 3 is running, the generated log can be safely ignored.


@mrlancelo12,
the log shows it has already found and matched the GPU...? And, without knowing what lines you added (in what files), or the info from the "Rating info" section, I cannot say, really.

Hi there, Ellacharmed! :( I really didn't want to bother you about my problems (a lot of people have been posting) but I really am losing hope. I followed every single game help topics in the wikia, including the switching to NVIDIA from the integrated Intel card, but it just won't switch out... I'm currently doing the clean up of your "Getting your New GPU Recognized" topic because it still keeps on using the Intel graphics card no matter what I do. :'( Not even putting the TS3W.exe tot he Nvidia Control Panel helps! (but the little nvidia tray does show the game is using it- but the device log says not... weird)

I even tried disabling the Intel graphics card, and completely disabled DEP (via command prompt) so I don't get the access violation slumps anymore, but for some reason, it just keeps on crashing with the same error. I even downloaded a ton of 3rd party programs like custard, delphy's download organizer, the LAA 4gb patch, EVERYTHING. lskjd aslkjd lksjl

Things I have done:
1. followed "Switching the duo graphics to the dedicated"
2. followed "LAA troubleshooting"
3. followed "getting new graphics card recognized"
4. followed "insufficient memory crashes" and reviewing my crashlogs (but I'm 64-bit so I removed some cc instead and went to check how much my ram is)
5. checked my cc via delphy's organizer and deleted/cleaned up all the conflicts and corrupt files.
6. went to bios to increase ram dedication to video cards
7. entered the disable DEP via command prompt
8. disabling HDGraphics family (but it seems that i shouldn't be doing that or it ruins my pc screen- goes black often)
9. tried to find a way to remove Optimus but to no avail.
10. clean installs of EVERYTHING

Strangely enough, I have the same set of dual graphics cards as Mahilum_MariaChristina.

Version: 1.63.5.024017
Dual GPUs: Intel (R) HD Graphics Family (Integrated)
NVIDIA GeForce GT 740M (dedicated)

I also added only NVIDIA GT 740M in the Graphicscard.sgr in hopes that maybe even if the nvidia just won't switch with the intel HD graphics family, maybe it would after doing this one. (But before I even done this, it would still show Intel, and not the Nvidia one- even after the clean up)

I seriously need help please...

(Forgot to add: I already have about 8gb worth of custom content, and they all worked perfectly only under Intel graphics until yesterday morning, crashing about 5 minutes into the game. The only mods I have are Twallan's stuff like overwatch, master controller, story progression which are all up to date, and about a few sliders for the head- which are also up to date in accordance to my patch.)

My patch is 1.63. and I have all expansions and stuff packs except into the future and movie stuff.

This is the only game I play for leisure, and the rest of my time I just work. :(


Please help me, I beg you... :cry:

Hello!

I have looked over all the sites i could possibly find, and have found no answers. I do have a newer card (AMD Radeon HD 7900 Series), (device id 0x6798) and am wondering why my game has set texture memory to 32MB <OVERRIDE>. I know my game isn't running the way it should (Factory settings, have everything set to the lowest option). In the past i had Windows 8, and was able to get my card recognised in the game by following the guides here to the Graphics Rules and Cards.sgr file changes, but this time, it recognises my card but won't recognise the texture memory (memory in the device config set to 1), and i'm at my end trying to find out why. I hope i have posted this into the right thread, as i don't believe it's recognising my card properly.

I have tried to insert my card into the Graphics Card.sgr file, add the HD 7??? part to the four places, as shown on the site to getting graphics cards recognised, and then i tried adding a HD 7900 line after the other, set out in this format " or match("${cardName}", "*HD 7??0*") ".

I am now patched to 1.67 (as of 2 days ago), and have all Eps and Sps installed up to University Life.

I am unable to attach my dxdiag, or GraphicsCard/Rules.sgr files as they are too large according to the upload manager. Please if you need them let me know, or if i have this in the wrong thread. I have to go out to work tonight, and we have a power outage from 8.30am to 3.30pm tomorrow, so if i haven't replied/ added more info that is why. I'm also sorry for adding this to the thread, when i know there are threads about this, but none of those answers were of any help, and i don't wish to add this to anyone's list of things to do, help fix, but i would appreciate some help please. Thankyou :).

Hello There,

I got the same problem as stated above a few posts before.
My DeviceConfig is empty like:

=== Options ===
=== Default Options ===

So my graphics card is a geforce GT 450M I added tfollowing line in the GraphicCards.sgr:

card 0df4 "GeForce GT 540M"

I followed your guide on the wiki but nothing helped yet. I try to play on a DELL XPS 502X and yes I do play a lot of new games like Assassins Creed 4 e.g. only thing not working is Sims 3 with the current patch 1.67
Latest drivers are installed so my laptop hardware is up to date.

@Xirian,
if you have dual-GPU, the deviceconfig.log report is no longer accurate. Just go by the Nvidia Control Panel's report when you have the game running. If that panel shows TS3W is using Nvidia, then you're good to go. You can safely ignore whatever the deviceconfig.log claims.

@HeyWaitUp,
Yes.
As explained in the Wiki. :) You have read it, right?

@Sinead19,
you feel the texture memory setting is wrong? What is the expected value? Based on...?
--
Patch 1.67 has the device id 0x6798 listed (first line under ATI). Why did you feel that you have to add that in? Even your DeviceConfig.log shows that the card is found, albeit with that wrong texture memory value (if it should be more). Perhaps all the edits have messed things up. Restore the original, remove the DeviceConfig.log and Options.ini files and start the game. Is it showing the correct value, now?

On perusing the GraphicsRules file, <<override>> means that the card was not found, but then there's also [Found: 1, Matched: 1]. So, this is a mess.
On further analyzing your DxDiag report, it shows the Device driver has not been updated since Jul, 2012! So, first order of business is
- update device driver
- undo your SGR edits by restoring the original files.

IF after these 2 steps, things are still screwy, all I can deduce at this point is that the patching didn't go well. So time for "last resort" steps: uninstalling base game and then repatching to 1.67 via Superpatcher (that is redownloaded is best, in case the Superpatcher.exe itself causes the screwy SGR files to be transferred).

@gamersfm,
card 0df4 "GeForce GT 540M"Might be because it is missing the "0x". As I don't have a "GTX 580", I don't really know the impact of what excluding this bit has on the game, really. But I would add it to test the theory that it should at least be similar to all the other entries.
Should be
card 0x0df4 "GeForce GT 540M"

You didn't which posts in particular or even what sort of problems you encountered...do you mean the blank deviceconfig.log file?
The laptop is also equipped with dual-GPUs? Then the same thing about it being safe to ignore the deviceconfig.log I mentioned above applies.

What CPU does your XPS 502X laptop come with? An i3 or i5 or i7? At what clock speed? All my web searches return a CPU clocked lower than 2.4GHz (in either i5 or i7 flavors), which is the MINIMUM recommended. With a weak GPU, ideally the CPU should be greater than 2.4GHz.
Based on the GPU alone, you do realize what sort of performance to expect when running Sims 3, yes? Based on our Wiki SysReq chart, the 450M is not expected to perform well for packs after Generations EP, going by how badly its reported for the Desktop models. Regardless of how it performs in other games; Sims have always performed differently than First-Person-Shooter/Swordfight games.

Hello! I'm a bit new here.. So I'm not sure if I'm asking this in the right area and stuff, but I hope someone can help me, 'cause it's getting really frustrating. :|

I can't remember very well but once I installed new drivers from nvidia, I thought it was something with "Game Ready" and after that I wanted to play the Sims 3. It was starting up fine, not laggy or slow, but after a few minutes the screen would go black and the computer would reboot. So, I uninstalled The Sims 3, and tried again, still same problem.. Installed new drivers, still same problem. Cleaned the pc, still same problem.. But after a few months I wanted to try playing the Sims 3 again so I think I have reinstalled it again, and then the message pops up; "We can't find your video card in our database..." And again, it would crash and reboot after playing a few minutes. Then I found that tutorial on how to get the game to recognize your graphics card and I tried it but it still didn't help, but it also could be I did something wrong because it was a bit difficult for me.

1. The game's patch version is: 1.0.631
2. I don't have dual GPU'S.. well atleast I don't think so, I'm not sure though.. I'm quite a noob with this kind of things XD

4. This is what it says in my dxdiag.txt file:

Also, that requirements list says that my card is supported.. And I don't know how I should change the stuff in the GraphicsCards.sgr and GraphicsRules.sgr >_<
And I'm not sure if I have to include this but in the DeviceConfig.log it says:

Sorry Ella, i wasn't sure if i had too much info, or not enough.

My PC was built April 2013, and my partner had to re-install Windows 7 Oct last year, all drivers are up to date. He doubled checked this for me. So i don't know why it has 2012.

I believe the patch has screwed things over with my files, because after restoring the originals, the device config shows the same thing. The only difference with the GraphicsRule file is the line "match...7900" isn't there but the "HD 7???" one is.
I will do a uninstall and re-install of ts3 and then redownload the super patch for 1.67

It was also based on my previous card on my old PC having a texture memory value in the device config of 3776 MB.

Thankyou for your help and your reply :)

1. The game's patch version is: 1.0.631

Also, that requirements list says that my card is supported.. May I know why you haven't updated? And SysReq shows the GPU model is only supported for the unpatched base game.

Running a retail game means that you cannot have any mods as there are none right now that supports that version anymore. And it is really not advisable to run the game vanilla at this point, there are just too many bugs. So, I guess you're facing a catch-22 situation. Not update and have more bugs than necessary, some of which are game-breaking; or update and have the patch be too powerful for your system. You might be able to compensate for the weak GPU if the CPU is powerful enough and the system has enough RAM as the recommended amount; but I cannot say until I see the Full DxDiag report. But as most times, GPU and CPU performance are kinda matched to each other's caliber, I hardly doubt this.


@Sinead19,
has your partner check for driver updates this week or only when the OS was installed? Or, since you started having issues? Not going by Windows Updates, right? You visited AMD's website yourself and download the latest that is offered?
Yes, you're right the graphicsrule file do not have a specific entry for "HD 79??", EA has lump them all together under "HD 7??0*". You can separate them out yourself if you know what you're doing...put the "HD 79??" under uber and move the "HD 7??0*" to high.

We checked them last week through the device manager and the AMD website, and both say they are up to date (we were checking because of other games we have). We had major issues on my pc in oct with windows updates somehow being tampered with through game booster switching off processes, and we thought my card had died for a while there, so we did a fresh reinstall of windows and found that my card was fine, just my ts3 wasn't reading my card anymore!

I will make a copy of the graphics rule sgr file and try that before work Thursday, along with reinstalling the base! Thankyou.

If you have issues with driver updates not "sticking" you can start your own help thread, as that issue is a tad out of scope of this one. If you need further help, that is.

What is the AMD Catalyst version that is showing up in Control Panel? Should be 13.12 if it is the latest. If Control Panel is showing this version but DxDiag is showing a driver date of 2012, that is a big concern.
Can you run other games or watch HD movies without issues?

I have updated it now to
It's a bit weird because at first before I updated my nvidia drivers, it was always working good,no bugs or lag.. >_< So are you saying I can't really play it on this pc?
Anyways, I'll give you the

I have updated it now to Updated it to...??


Update Nvidia drivers by downloading from HP or Nvidia site?

I've always hated that the PC manufacturers tend to do this. Spoil a good CPU+RAM combo with a subpar GPU to save costs.
With that CPU+RAM combo, you're actually meeting requirements if we exclude the GPU. You can still play, with reduced settings; but I don't know how long that GPU can last if push beyond its limits constantly, even on lowered graphical options. As it all depends on how often you play in a week, how long each play session is, how your gameplay style is (lots of CC and high settings?), if you play Full or windowed mode, and etc etc. On the one hand, I don't want to be an alarmist, but on another I don't want to give you false hope.

You might want to start thinking of upgrading options for the GPU, if you play Sims 3 for long periods each time or everyday. However, if this is your PC (http://is.gd/FxoYQ0), than your upgrade options are also limited, as that motherboard only have a single slot lane for the GPU. And you're back to square one as there's only so much a GT x50 of the same single-slot caliber can deliver, relative to a full gaming dual-slot GTX x60 - x80 (the ones that statistically have Green YESes for the whole row). The current generation of Nvidia GPUs at the moment have a first digit of "7". If you want to upgrade, or explore options, or get opinions, post a separate thread in the Computer & Software Help.

Some more FAQs if you haven't read them yet.

I've updated it to 1.67.2.024002. I forgot to say that haha. And I updated via the nvidia site.
Well I used to play Sims 3 like almost everyday, and no packages just some sims3packs..
But I guess that I can better save up for a new PC then, 'cause this one is from my dad. Thank you so much for the help! :anime:

Okay, so again i tried the Device Manager which told me my driver was up to date. The auto detect told me the same thing, so i checked the dxdiag file against the catalyst control centre info and found it to be at version 8.982. So i went back to the site and downloaded 13.12 (twice, as the first version didn't stick) and installed. Just in case it didn't work and stick this time, i ran a new dxdiag after a OS restart, and found it to be at version 13.12. :blink: :wtf:

So i removed the ts3 device config and options and ran the game, but alas it's still not reading correctly, so i will have to do a re-install. But, I was able to run all other games on ultra before (Might & Magic 6, Settlers 7, Skyrim). :)

But thankyou so much for helping me with that. If it wasn't for you i would not have realised the driver update wasn't sticking properly. I will let you know what happens after i re-install the ts3 base and re-download the superpatch.

And this applies to everybody...
Yeah, don't do it that way. That is letting Windows update the drivers.
Either let the AMD icon on the SysTray tell you or confirm it manually yourself by comparing it in Control Panel and the official website. Always download drivers from the AMD (or Nvidia / Intel / (component manufacturer) ) website directly. Unless you're on a Laptop, then check the Laptop manufacturer's website.

I uninstalled the ts3 base, re-installed and downloaded the 1.67 super patch. Installed that. Ran ts3, closed and opened the device config:

When i look at the options tab in the main menu in the game everything is sitting on low again/ minimum :(. I haven't touched the Graphics rules/cards files either. I'm going to assume it's the patch, or ts3 somehow thinks my card is broken even though i can run other games :(

Hate to add to all of those in this thread, but I'm really at a loss as to what my game is playing at - it's virtually unusable.

It's a brand new [one month old] laptop, with dual graphics - after patching to 1.67 I started getting crashes after about half an hour, the analyzer saying it was down to unrecognised graphics. A quick look in the Deviceconfg file produced this information:
GPU: 5 GPU Memory: 1 CPU: 2 RAM: 4 CPU Speed: 1996 Threading: 3
Adjusted CPU: 2261 RAM: 7366 Adjusted RAM: 6854 Cores: 4

Chipset: Vendor: 1002, Device: 9907, Board: 216c103c, Chipset: 0000


So I went through the above steps, and also had a tweak under the AMD Vision control centre, selecting the "High Performance" option for the Sims 3.
Booted the game - on the main menu it flashes up that my card is not recognised, and that my settings have been set to their highest values. Look under Options and everything is at it's lowest setting, so I set them all back to where I had them before [Highest options] and quit out.
Reloaded the game, and everything is back to the lowest options again - and all the age spans, checks - everything has been wiped to from what I had it set to. I loaded a family, changed the settings, saved and exited.
Reloaded - exactly the same, everything wiped back to zero.
I changed my AMD settings back to the defaults and tried again - same problem, everything resets to the lowest. I tried taking out all my mods, saves etc and did a clean load, tried a world... and everything is black, and all their options are at their lowest.

To top it all off, the Deviceconfig file is now completely blank apart from a few titles - I kept a copy of the original, but if I put it back in the game wipes it blank again. I've tried deleting it, and the newly generated one is also blank.

I've tried putting the original files back, but the problem isn't going away. I really don't want to have to uninstall everything, but I'm really starting to despair that I'm just going to have to start over.

I have all EPs and a few SPs.. and I really hope that all made sense D:

Please help, I'd like to play my sims game. I have a brand new computer, including the most updated Sims 3 patch, and a geforce 770. I'm thinking its really bad that it says found:0 matched:0. I tried the solutions others have posted here with the GraphicsCards.sgr and GraphicsRules.sgr and it does nothing except cause an error 12. This is all weird since according to nvidia, the game should run "fair" but I'm missing the "land" underneath all the houses, the water doesn't appear at all (just a flat blue space) and more. It's totally unplayable.My DeviceConfig.log is below. If you need any other info, please let me know.

I recently purchased a new computer with an AMD Radeon 270x graphics card. Upon loading The Sims, I received a message saying my card was not recognized, so, I took to the tutorial via Sims Wiki. I have gotten my device config file to Found: 1 and Matched: 1, yet settings are still unbearably low for textures and the like.

For GraphicsCards.sgr I changed card 0x6798 "AMD Radeon HD 7900 Series" to my card card 0x6810 "AMD Radeon R9 270x Series"

For the GraphicsRules.sgr I changed "*HD 7??0*") to "*R9 270x*")

Everything seems to take well as my deviceconfig acknowledges the card as found and matched, but will not give me decent settings and still rates my hardware as 1.

Drivers are updated for my GPU to latest available.

Any help would be highly appreciated.

Thank you,
Pink

hi, just a bit confused as to what i need to do to get everything working.

game keeps cashing in create a sim, according to CLA my game is maxing out the memory.
im using an nvidea gtx 650, would this be the reason for the crashes?

Hello,

First of all, I'd like to thank you for the excellent guide. Unfortunately, I'm running into a slight problem.

My game has been updated to the last patch (1.67.2), and I have a dual-GPU. My cards are: Intel(R) HD Graphics 4600 (Vendor ID 8086, Device ID 0416) and NVIDIA GeForce GT 750M (Vendor ID 10DE, Device ID 0FE4). When reworking the GraphicsCards and GraphicsRules files, I'm pretty sure I added my NVIDIA card correctly, but I hadn't the faintest idea how to add in the Intel HD Graphics card, so I left that one out. I also used the NVIDIA Control Panel to force my game to use the NVIDIA card instead of the Intel one.

However, when I try to set the game to its default graphic settings, it's still using the lowest possible ones.

Here is the information on my DeviceConfig.log, as of now:

I am trying to follow the steps in this article (http://simswiki.info/wiki.php?title=Game_Help:Getting_new_graphics_cards_recognized_by_the_game). I know my game is not recognizing the graphics card. The proof from following the first steps is here:
=== Graphics device info ===
Number: 0
Name (driver): AMD Radeon HD 6750M
Name (database): AMD Radeon HD 6750M [Found: 0, Matched: 1]

When I get to the Solution part of the guide I become stuck. I am running Mac OS X 10.9.1 with 8 GB Memory. I don't know where to even find the files the guide is refering to. Is there a guide for Mac or can this be done on a Mac?

Hello, I'm a little confused as to what I should replace files with. Since my graphics card is not a 'series' that I know of, I'm not sure what I should put. If anybody would be so kind as to let me know, my great appreciation would go out to you.

I started off with Found: 0, Matched: 0 but after following the instructions I have Found: 1, Matched: 1! Yay!

Unfortunately, when I load up the game and click the restore defaults button they remained on the lowest settings.

I've cleared the cache and attempted to patch (it was already up to date) so I'm not sure what I need to do next.

I'd love some help. I haven't even had this computer for a week but sims looks bad and freezes periodically.

Hi, I hope I can get some help here, I tried my best to follow the wiki, but I'm really unsure on what to add to the "GraphicRules.sgr"

my graphics card is a "GeForce GTX 670"

from the deviceconfig.log:
=== Graphics device info ===
Number: 0
Name (driver): NVIDIA GeForce GTX 670
Name (database): NVIDIA GeForce GTX 670 [Found: 0, Matched: 1]
Vendor: NVIDIA
Chipset: Vendor: 10de, Device: 1189, Board: 126519da, Chipset: 00a1
Driver: nvd3dum.dll, Version: 9.18.13.3788, GUID: D7B71E3E-52C9-11CF-A674-68321CC2C435
Driver version: 3788


I added the line: card 0x1189 "GeForce GTX 670" to the Graphicscard.sgr


but so unsure what to add to the GraphicsRule.sgr


please help me

@Sinead19
there's an entry for "*HD 7??0*" in the Uber category. So, even if you tweak the Option sliders yourself, the next time you load the game, the previous settings were overwritten and goes back to being low?

@ohcasablanca,
your issue is not just that it is weak GPU. It is weak GPU on top of a weak CPU. Sims 3 needs minimum of 2.4GHz to even run base game. The CPU reported here states it is running 1.9GHz. GPU: 5 GPU Memory: 1 CPU: 2 RAM: 4 CPU Speed: 1996 Threading: 3

@moiraesfate,
and it does nothing except cause an error 12and what lines did you add to the SGR files? Does the error 12 still happen if you test with clean User Folders? How about when you revert to the original SGR files, what happens then?
The i7-4771 CPU has integrated graphics HD 4600. Is this already disabled?


@PinkImpatients,
So, even if you tweak the Option sliders yourself, the next time you load the game, the previous settings were overwritten and goes back to being low?

@Huw7000,
as stated in the first post, this thread is to resolve GFX issues if it is newly replaced. Is the GTX 650 newly upgraded? If not, you need to create a separate thread with your DxDiag and the information asked for in the Crashing Checklist FAQ (see my signature).

@lusine,
as stated in the Wiki, if you have dual graphics, you need to ignore what the DeviceConfig.log says as it is inaccurate. EA does not cater for dual-graphics, in their eternal wisdom. So, even if you tweak the Option sliders yourself, the next time you load the game, the previous settings were overwritten and goes back to being low?

@nwsaylor87,
you never had the need to check for the game version in the info.plist file? Lucky you. I will add the step on how to locate the SGR files in OS X systems to the WIKI FAQ momentarily. In the meantime, to locate the SGR files is the same as the steps on how to find your game version from info.plist (http://simswiki.info/wiki.php?title=Game_Help:TS3_Patching_Find_Gameversion#info.plist).

@renmiu,
you don't need to have the word "series" in the name; it is the card name as shown in your DxDiag report together with the Device ID.

@moshmoshii,
So, even if you tweak the Option sliders yourself, the next time you load the game, the previous settings were overwritten and goes back to being low?
I'd love some helpunfortunately, I'm not psychic. So if you need help I'm going to need information. The System Specs from DxDiag is a good place to start, pls start a new thread with that info (if you haven't already done so). Because Sims freezing is not a symptom for an unrecognized GFX card.

@asta,
do you have the following in the Rules sgr file? match("${cardName}", "*GTX 6??*")

@everyone,
I think it is time to retire this thread and let you guys start your own thread for your issue individually. If there are no replies to this last group of folks by this weekend (i.e. beyond Sun July 20th), those that still need help with this FAQ, please start a new thread in Help. I will edit the WIKI FAQ accordingly.

I got it to work about a month ago. I don't know how or why. I reinstalled and used the info in this thread four times, each time was exactly the same as the time before it. But somewhere something worked right so now I can play. I have absolutely no idea what I did to fix it.
