Fix corrupted or missing hair in The Sims3

sims hair

Let me guess, you have  a stat of the art ATI  graphics card and you are shocked by the corrupted or transparent geometries in “The Sims3” specially the characters hair.

The reason is a malfunction in your graphics card’s “Adaptive anti-aliasing “. Open Catalyst control center and disable “Adaptive anti-aliasing”.

This same features caused a similar problem with Velvet assassin that I discussed before .

You can also read about the ATI driver and some of my thoughts about it here

Fix Dark sector crashing when changing resolution

Dark sectorDark sectorDark sector crashed on me everytime I tried to change the resolution from the default 800X600 (Yes this game does not even try to behave (configure) itself in front of my 4890 OC ) to 1680*1050.

Thye solution is simple open the game’s installation folder, open the subfolder called Configs, double click the file DS.cfg, then click select a program to open it. From the list choose “Wordpad” and hit ok

The configuration file is now open, just modify the following two lines to match the your preferred resolution

Graphics.FullScreenSizeX=1680
Graphics.FullScreenSizeY=1050

save and exit wordpad

Congratulations, now you can play the hi-res version that you deserve.
