heres what it says:

If the log you've listed on the previous page is accurate, it's not reading your Graphics Rules.sgr, because it still says texture memory of 32. The only version you should have to edit is from the latest EP as that is what is loaded last. So the Store Edition folder version. Maybe double check the file format? It should be Graphics Rules.sgr, make sure the extension is .sgr as it might try to default to .txt after editing.

and maybe add line
Code:
card 0x1402 "GeForce GTX 950"

in the "Nvidia" section of the 'Video Cards.sgr' file (I already put your GPU identifier there so it's just CTRL+C->CTRL+V)

3 months later and i still cant get this to work, its as if the game isn't listening to the graphics rules at all. i tried completely uninstalling all of them and wiping any trace of the games and reinstalling just the sims 2 deluxe. i altered the resolution in graphics rules and seti Low , seti Medium, and seti High. still opening the game and only one resolution option shows up at all. the window mode remains the minimum and i cannot get it any larger, nothing seems to change no matter what i do.
