So i bought sims 3 at gamestop (disc version of course) and i installed it. The loading up screen and intro in the beginning of the game is fine and the home screen as well, the screen doesn't flicker. But once i start the game the loading screen and when creating a sim and the gameplay the screen starts to flicker and its very annoying and interrupts gameplay. Mainly it just flickers but there were a couple of times when i saw the flickering it was like a screen shot of battlefield 3 which i also have installed in my computer. It show's the scoreboard and "round end" and i can tell the flickering is from battlefield 3. But most of the time the screen just flickers. Is the graphics card interrupted or is it just sims 3. I alsp played bf3, crysis, and counter strike source and those game run fine no problems. How do i fix the flickering screen in sims 3 and if anyone would know the problem or solution, any suggestions is great.
