I had the same problem..It got me pretty upset. My husband installed windows 10 where I had my sims on, and it crashes everytime I try to go in.Then he reinstalled it windws 10 and it worked, only now I get to see those rectangular shadows underneath them, but I can fox it in graphics from high to medium. I am not sure it will continue to work a next time I try, but I will let you guys know...The thing is, I have all my game process saved and I do NOT want to lose them. So he saved them, and put them back in. He does not want to go back from windows 10, since it's his pc (sigh)..But I will see when I try again. I hate it when it happens. I will let you guys know

I have Windows 10 installed in my laptop and Sims 2 Ultimate Collection run without problems. At the beginning I saw this ugly rectangular black shadow under my sims too but I found a solution in "Mod The Sims".
With that file I didn't touch the quality of graphics.

Yes, indeed. But you know what I just did? I just changed the graphics, in Options, the shadow option was on high , I put it on Medium, and it was gone!

Update: I played it today, and it's working fine!!! So, indeed no problems so far..I'll check it again, tomorrow

Nighty night, everyone!

Guys,

Maybe you have it all sorted out, but I promised to give a 2nd update after reinstalling the game on windows 10. It is working fine...I m having a blast again, and so do my girls who play. Only thing , sometimes, it cashes while on community lots. It did it lot before already, but jst that is the only soreness it gives me now...

Happy simming!

So glad to hear that you have your game back. I was lost when I did not have mine.

To Everybody,

I am still working on my 217, Wright way. I keep altering the whole building and changing the furnishings around. I am enjoying every minute of it. One night, I spent 2 hours on a bedroom and then decided I didn't like it.

Ah Renee, that sounds so familiar.
Sometimes I have a scheme in my head as to how I want a room to look and which colours to use, only to see when I am done that almost nothing is the way I planned it!
I even at times use a picture as a reference, and even then my rooms come out very different.

Sometime I like what I have done, and sometimes I just trash the whole room and start over.
But, even if I am disappointed about the room, I enjoy putting it together.

I hope to see your house soon!

That's funny Renee and Anita..I don't do that..I take my time and I usually know what I want and how it goes..never have I trashed a room or the whole house after doing it..lol..

But with these contests I am just not liking the way the rooms comes out no matter what I do..I guess it's because I am out of my comfort zone and the things I have to use are not my style..

I also hope to see your house soon Renee :summerBa:

If you're having trouble with sims 2 and windows 10, there's a forum at Leefish with a lot of information (different threads for different graphics cards/problems) and celebkiriedhel there helps when she can. She's *such* a sweetie, but hasn't been feeling too well lately. I think she might be getting better now.

[I can't post the leefish link, but I think a search will bring it up. It's called Leefish and you'd want the sims2 graphic card forum. What a strange rule. Was the site hacked and someone posting bad links or something?]

I'm still on 7 and they'll pry this computer out of my cold, dead hands ;) But I played Castaway recently and had the blocks under my sims feet until I changed the settings to medium for the shadows.

I didn't download the new windows update as my friend who has an older computer like mine (going on 9 years with my precious!) said his computer totally crashed and he had to buy a new one after installing Windows 10

I totally agree with you all. I have Vista on my laptop and it works fine. My Sims 2 game and my Sid Meiers games are not compatible for Windows 10. I guess they want me to buy all new software. Of course, I would be willing if they picked up the tab for them.

There is another thing about the Sims 4 - I don't care for the disney face sims. The colors are off the chart beautiful for the content. But, with a lot of hacks and lots of custom content my Sims 2 game is perfect for me. I love the game play. (I have zero  interest in graphic designs for meshing and recolor)

My hubby has Windows 10 and he's not happy with it.  There has been a fair amount of growling on his side of our office since he switched over.  I think I'll keep my labtop for gaming.

I know...Windows 10 can suck, indeed. And Renee, yes, I too tend to spend hours on a house but I enjoy doing it...Hoe to see your masterpiece soon once you're done with it

I didn't download Windows 10. I really didn't want to lose my sims 2. I originally played sims 1 and had to update to sims 2 when I bought a new computer which wasn't compatible with sims 2.
