Bad Optimization, Lots of mistakes, very loading screens and poor compatibility with Windows 7.

You will probably have 30-60FPS on High, your graphics card is very powerful, and your CPU isn't bad either, I don't even understand why you ask. xD

Yes but not the base game. You need an expansion pack higher than university to run this game.

Not at native res because the game is a bit old and don't support ultra hd resolution.
But in HD or FHD you can play it.

So I got this game on origin (Ultimate edition with all the DLC), however when i installed and loaded it up it goes through the intro movie and then to the title screen it doesnt bring up the normal sims 2 one, it always brings up the pets DLC one, and then the .exe doesnt respond and i have to close it. any help?

Hi folks, my PC and graphics card can run this on the highest settings, but I get a black rectangle under the sim. Is this because of my GFX or the game itself?

Max settings, since this game is old and this game engine works much better than the one in sims 3.
