Windows 7: Video card not recognized by video game

Video card not recognized by video game

Hi, so I play The Sims. I checked out the device config log and my video card isn't being recognized. Is there anyone who can help me with this? I have a XFX R7 260 (is that a good card?). I bought the card becuz it was specifically listed as a card that'll work with The Sims.

I tried to get help on 2 Sim forums, but I couldn't follow their directions and they lost patience

Can someone please help me?

Thank you.

Here is the short version: Mod The Sims - The first start is slower than second one, third one...

Here is the long version: Mod The Sims - Game_Help:Getting_new_graphics_cards_recognized_by_the_game

What I got done was copying the sgr files and adding .orig at the end. I also went into the graphicscard.sgr picked a card close to mine (there aren't any) and put the number of my device in the place of what was originally there. That's about it.
Thank you very much. Be back in a few hours.

I'm back.

I just saw that barefoot kid has passed on?! I'm very sorry. Barefoot kid helped me 1 or 2 times in the past.
