Hi Sam :D

I believe you need to select your game first, then click the Direct3D 10+ option :D

You are looking for where The Sims 2 program files are located:

For UC it's in C:/Program Files x86/Origin Games/The Sims 2 Ultimate Collection/Fun with Pets/SP9/TSBin called Sims2EP9.exe

where I found the above line

Thank you Suzanne for your help

Sam - Choose the last one on the bottom left, the Sims2EP9

Now, you will also need to download presets (which is what effects how things will look in the game) or make your own when you get into the game.

When you first start the game you'll know if it's been installed correctly because you'll get a black bar across the top of your load screen saying it's starting Reshade and will count down all the installed effects. It might slow down your load for a about 15 seconds or so until it finishes loading those effects.

If you don't have presets installed to choose, you won't see any difference in how the game looks until you either install some or make one so don't be surprised if it doesn't appear to have done anything.

I can't really tell you what to do since your PC and graphics card is different than mine, and explaining how to make a pre-set by typing it out would take me forever and I'm not sure I'd explain it well enough for you to understand.

When I helped Suzanne install hers, I screen-shared my screen thru skype and showed her so it was easier for her see what I was doing and then she could do it and adjust things how she wanted.

Sam, give me a buzz on skype...

You need to select the file through the ReShade installation process...

...also, you have the system set to NOT show you file extensions, which is why you didn't see the exe on the file name :D

Ok cool..thank you Suzanne..

Well I'm not sure what is going on..I know my SimPE..went down again..but I also think there is something wrong with the game..am redownloading it as we speak..

Some of my recolors are not showing up in the game..even some of the older ones..and 1 of 10 showed up just a little bit ago that I did early this morning..and this is not even the SimPE that I was using..gdayars sent me a link to hers..

So something is wrong..but I am thinking I may not even recolor anymore just go back to playing the game..I really miss that..

I don't know anymore..
