Selected Test Results

What works

- Installing the game

- Launching the game with these options : -skip_intro (because the intro makes the game crash), -skip_verify (to force the game not to run in 16 bit colors)

- Playing the game a little

What does not

The Sims models don't render, they use a white texture instead. The same goes for animals.

This problems occurs while playing with a family or while creating a family.

The houses textures can also be buggy when saved, for example the rooftop is totally white or misplaced.

Some report that you can't make Sims interact with each other but I succeeded so I don't know if it's a common problem.

Workarounds

What was not tested

Playing a long game with expansions.

Tested the game on a Wine 32 bits prefix with the 2.19 staging version.

Here are my PC specs :
â–º CPU : AMD FX-8350 8 cores @4.0GHz
â–º GPU : MSI Lightning NVIDIA GTX 770 2GB
â–º RAM : 2x4GB Crucial Ballistix Tactical @1600MHz DDR3

I use the NVIDIA 387.12 proprietary drivers for my video card.

What about 16bpp?

Did you have to change the color depth to 16 in xorg.conf? Please state so if you did.
