Sims 4 Graphics Card Does Not Meet Minimum Specifications. Nvidia 1060

Post by Lierix on Thu 31 May 2018, 01:57

If anyone could help that would be great. I have a 1060 and trying to play The Sims 4. Its saying my graphics card doesn't meet the min requirements when it obviously does. I went into compatibility and disabled fullscreen optimization and the game starts, however the edges are cut off very bad. I went into the games settings and changed it to fullscreen windowed mode, the edges are not cut off but now the game looks terrible and pixelated. Any solutions on how to fix this?? It's the only way I can get the game to run.

The Nvidia GTX 1060 is capable to run the game at high settings.
First of all look in the folder My Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 4
Open the file Config.log with Notepad
Scroll down a bit tp ===Graphics device info ===
Check that the correct card name is mentioned.
Name (database): Geforce GTX 1060 [Found: 1, Supprted: 1]

If found or supported is not 1 
Delete the following files:
Client DB.package
localthumbcache.package
Config.log
Options.ini

Start your game again, the removed files will build up again.
Then chack again for found and supported

i have GeForce 210 and im running the game on some settings at low and it run fine
maybe you need to check drivers first and direct X and the apps that need to be installed with game like vcredist
these apps came with the game and when they are not installed they give pain trying to play it
