I'm glad to actually have found this community and have heard from a few friends that if you have issues with some PC related things, this is the place to go. But enough flattery on my part, let me get to my issue.
I recently went through my CD book and found my old Sims 1 CD. While I understand that some OS have serious issues with older games, most of these can be solved with turning on compatibility modes or admin settings. I went looking on the internet for my Sims problem, so let me describe it here :
I click on the icon choosing which resolution I want the game to start in, I then get a blue circle 'working circle' and checking processes I do see that the game attempts to start. It immediately goes away after a few seconds of working and I see no changes on my screen.
I would like to get this working, I do miss my old Sims and would enjoy having it working as intended but setting compatibility to Windows XP SP 2 does nothing as well as setting Admin.
Anyone have any ideas or perhaps a thread I may have missed about getting it working or NOT getting it working if there is no work around?
