View Full Version : Game started having lag problems after updating Windows 10... (Semi-solved)

After I updated Windows 10 to the latest version a few days ago, the configuration I had for Sims 2 got reset, and I had to put it back to how it was again, but it keeps lagging! Before I updated, it ran almost perfectly, save for those times when there are too many objects at once, but now it's happening all the time. I did everything that could help with that problem, but it's barely improving. I'm completely lost at this, and I don't know what else can I do. :help:

I wonder if it's Securom kicking in? Damn odd if it is but you can read about this issue over at Leefish:


Other issues might be it no longer loves your video card as much as it did (check graphicrules.sgr doesn't need adjustment) or you might need to try and up the way the game addresses your RAMz or you might need to modify the exe to deal with your multicores. All this info is available at Leefish - it's a good resource to start checking about lagginess.

I don't have Securom, that's why it ran almost buttery smooth. The graphicsrules.sgr is modified to recognize my card and I used the Nvidia control panel to force it into using only one core. It has exactly the same configuration I had before, but it runs worse! My PC is a laptop, a Sony VAIO VPCEG25FL, if it helps...

Sorry for the double post, but I wanted to post an update. So I downloaded the SecuROM removal tool to check if it was indeed that, and what a surprise, there were files for that crap! So I removed them all, and then ran CCleaner to get rid of any loose references. I already had the game running with an unmentionable, so I only have to start it again and see if it runs like before.
