Flashing Pink

Flashing Pink

Postby Jenn » October 23rd, 2018, 9:24 am

After a year of crashing, I finally got the game to load up. I can even load lots now. My issue is now with everything flashing pink. Except, it's random. Belladonna Cove is completely pink and flashing. Pleasantview does not. The Pleasant household loaded fine once, but the Goth's do not.

I put in "boolprop useshaders false, which fixed most of the Goth house issues, but the sims themselves are stll flashing pink. I have deleted my thumbnails and my caches.

Spoiler:

before putting in the shader code.

After using the shaders code.


This is a fresh EA folder.

I'm just about done with this and is a last ditch effort.

I haven't experienced this myself. But I heard it's a problem with Windows.

I did find this and this video.

I hope this helps and you can get it fixed.
Thank so much Thai for the siggy!

Thanks, Pony.

I did visit and do everything they listed earlier. I went from completely flashing pink to the lesser problem with them.

Did you find out what it was? If it's like Pony said, Windows 10 obviously HATES AND LOATHES Sims 2 and refuses to run it. I have never seen that happen before.

No, posting here was a last ditch effort. I have been battling this for a year.

The game recognizes my graphics card. I have used the 4gb patch. I have increased my virtual memory for the game. I load the game without shadows. I will probably take this issue to leefish and see if they have any clues.

Good luck!! Sorry we were not more helpful. I'm been learning more technical stuff. But only as I run into it and thankfully I have not had trouble with this yet.

Thanks anyway, Pony. Hopefully no one else suffers from this issue.

I have all the discs, so I could just try and do a full install and see how it runs that way. Such a pain to do that though.

Windows 10 sure did ruin a lot of stuff.

Is it like that on startup? Or after playing for a while? I've seen a lot of people on tumblr talk about this issue. And you're using the graphics rules maker? If not, this could help. I'm playing on windows 10, and I think I must be lucky as my only issue was blocky shadows, which I downloaded a fix for.

Pleasantview does not look like this on startup. Belladonna Cove does though. The blocky shadows I have fixed in my graphics rules, I just set it to sim shadows false for the highest setting.

I will give the graphics rules another try today, but I just don't care for that program since I can do everything it does manually.

I must admit I don't know exactly what the program does; I use it to force Sims 2 to recognize my graphics card of course. I'm also pretty new to playing a modded Sims 2 game. I just saw that it was recommended by other players and also mentioned to help with the flashing pink issue. Did you get to try it yet?

It did the same thing that I had already done, and it looks exactly the same. Except, they look normal when they walk outside now. It's so weird. There are portions of the house that are still pink, the sims are now a dark reddish color, but they go normal when they are outside.

It's just so very weird. I might get all my work done today and downgrade to windows 8, which I know does work.

The discs all have SecuROM in them which makes it even harder to install on Windows 10. I was thinking about this last night, obviously I can't sleep without my brain going 100 miles an hour. I have a Windows 8.1 laptop that I DESPISE because it crashes like every time I try to use it I would remove it and put Windows 8 on it but I can't. It got a new battery too it was still under warranty so it didn't cost me anything. Anyway, I was thinking about it not because I know how to fix it, just some random thought about the Sims game line and Windows 10:

Sims 1: the grandparent in the nursing home, still around but no one goes to see them anymore.
Sims 2: the stressed out middle age parent who still wants to be "cool" but needs a helper (the Graphics Rule Maker) to make them happening with the "kids".
Sims 3: the angsty teenager who is still popular and still gets the attention [but still has a curfew {read crashing for me}]
Sims 4: the child, full of energy and always looking for the next new fad (the EP's, GP's and SP's) and who those that don't like the teenager anymore all pay more attention to.

Hahaha, so true. I need an old laptop with Windows XP for sims 2 XD, Windows 7 for Sims 3, and Keep my current OS for sims 4. I never played Sims 1, but I bet Windows ME would be needed for that one.

I still have my Sims 1 boxes and the CDs in them, Windows XP and Vista can run it and since Windows 7 is still closely related to XP it would probably run it as well. But 10? No chance in hell.
