My computer can run The Sims 2 base game perfectly but any expansion gives me the red flickering walls. I've tried loading it through 3D-Analyze but can't seem to get my settings right. [I get the game to run but as soon as it finishes loading any town the game crashes] If it makes any difference I have every single expansion installed and am launching it through the final xpac, Mansion and Garden Stuff like it does by default. I've seen people claiming they run the Sims 2 with expansions fine through this program so I have to assume I've got something wrong in the settings.

have you tried updating your graphics card drivers? btw,if your pc has an agp slot (sis761 chipset is agp based,if I remember correctly),you should really consider investing around 15$ and getting a dedicated graphics card-a passive radeon9550 would be my recommendation.it will run your game(s) without errors and many times faster than your current integrated sis761.

All my drivers are up to date. I've tried the modified graphics rules from the other Sims 2 thread as well. My Mobo is PCI. I've been considering getting a new graphics card but that would require a new psu as well and I can't afford it right now. That's the whole point of attempting to use 3D-Analyze lol.

well,as I have said many times,3da is an experimental tool,not meant as a graphics card replacement or as an universal fix for buggy drivers.it may,or may not help..

anyway,if you are 100% sure that you do not have an agp slot (what motherboard do you have,btw?),you can still buy a pci graphics card that will help you run the game(s) better-even an ancient radeon7000 would be a huge improvement (in compatibility,if not speed),and a geforce6200 would be even better,if you don't mind the higher price..I mean,they are certainly not going to magically turn your pc into a gaming beast,but they will allow you to play many games decently and without graphical corruption.

oh btw,no need to buy a new psu,power consumption of those cards is realy low-they do not even have an additional power connector.

I'm still trying to figure out how exactly the settings on it work, or how it works for that matter XD

My mobo setup is p4 2.2ghz dual core [4.4ghz overall]

I'm not sure if I should be trying to run just to cover what my graphics card lacks, which is just TnL hardware, or if I should be setting it up as it's own separate card.

I read through all error logs this morning and it looks like when it crashes, it's because it's trying to run both the onboard SiS card and the 3D emulated card at once:

Worst case scenario I play it with the ****ed up walls for now, it's not like the game doesn't run at all. A guy here did offer me an nVidea Geforce 8500 or something like that with a matching psu for $60 so I'll probably have to get that when I can afford it.

this is your cpu speed.your motherboard should have a brand (like asus,microstar etc) and a model number (something like k8n4-e).or perhaps the entire pc has a model number (if it was made by some big company),like HP Pavilion - Slimline s5503w-b or something like that..

don't be too hasty with buying new hardware for your pc,if you cannot identify the motherboard properly,you might end up with incompatible parts-I'm pretty sure that geforce8500 is going to be pci-express,not pci,and that means you won't be able to use it.

The card is from the same guy who built the computer so I know he'll put in something that works.

If I read it right, I've got an AMD Athlon 6400 mobo.
