The Sims 2: Nightlife Hands-On (PC)
http://pc.gamespy.com/pc/sims-2-nightlife/647173p1.html

4 page preview and at the end there is a diagnostic you can choose to run
to see if your system can run NL okay.

Thanks to modthesims2 for posting the link

This preview is 10 days old :-) But I never noticed the diagnostic...
in fact, I don't see it now either... :-( Could you give a direct
link?

As the OP says go to page 4 (the last page) down the bottom.
It detects my onboard SIS videocard which is not capable but doesn't find my
PCI Radeon which apparently is capable.
So I don't know how technically reliable it is.

Ah, it's an ad from newegg... had to disable admuncher :-)

I pass the minimum specs flying and the recommended specs with ease.
Yay.

Thanks for the pointer, I overlooked it myself as well. It even tells
me, that my cpu (s754 semprom 3100+) is overclocked to 3100MHz. lol

Thanks for clarifying that is was on page 4, just got back on this morning
and noticed that I forgot to include that fact that is was on page 4. Thanks
for posting that Ern!

Pegasus, there is so much stuff on the web right now about NL, hard to know
what is new,d or futuristic. Then again it sounds like your computer is set
to sniff out anything about NL first, B4 most people know it or where to
find the info..LOL!!I am happy jstknowing that sometime between Monday and
Wednesday of this week, I will be shooing my family out of my office space
and indulging my Sims2 passion full force getting into NL.

BTW, thought it has been great being updated on all the stuff that you have
found it has been great to read. Thanks for the time you put into that. We
can not tell who the most psyched or excited Sims2 player is in this NG, now
can we???? ;) 

Come on Nightlife!!

Same here - apparently I *fail* badly on my video card. Yeah right. It's
only showing a 'sis' videocard like you with 4MB RAM although I have a
Radeon also with 256MB so I wouldn't take it too seriously. Bizarrly, it
recognises that my system has a T&L capable video card in the CPU section.
I wonder if it's got anything to do with the fact that the analytical
programme is provided by NVidia? Everything else is just fine and dandy so
I guess I'm ok.

Best wishes

I don't think it's reliable at all. It told me my Athlon 64
3700+(2400MHZ) was overclocked to 3800MHZ:-)

It also doesn't look for drive space other than Drive C. I ran it
against my laptop (a Toshiba 5205) and everything passed except for
having enough drive space. I've got a 60GB drive with a 10GB
partition Drive C for the O/S and a 50GB partition Drive D with all my
apps and a relocated "My Documents" folder. There is 27GB free on
that partition which is more than enough.

I won't even bother running it against my full size gaming rig since
it is set up pretty much the same way. A small Drive C O/S partition
and around a 150GB for a few utils and the rest for gaming.

Maybe it factors old version numbers and calculates from BUS speed.
