Hello, it has been ages since I last logged in here.
Ugh, many things happened in RL that made me stop my "Sims Life".
But I can't stay away for too long, you know. (:
I just bought a laptop, since I had to sell my computer for moving reasons.
It has a much lower setup in comparison to my old pc, and I want some help from you guys, Sims Masters, to find out if I can run The Sims again.

This laptop's setup:
Core i3 2.5Ghz m-370
4GB RAM
Intel i3 Graphics 128MB

Ugh the video card sucks, I know. But could I play The Sims 2 with all expansions + downloads without any issues? I'm afraid to waste time installing it and not being able to play.
What do you guys think?
Thank you!

That`s true. smile
I tried xp sp3 and sp2 compatibility as well as windows 7 and it didin`t work here at all.
It`s probably because I`m running Windows 8.1 pro. thumbsdown

Hmm I think the sims 2 should actually work better on windows 8... but it is more fickle than sims 1. laugh
