I recently (month ago) just built my new computer, and for some reason some animations don't appear for me. My lower-end computer use to be able to show the animations, but of course it was laggy. I noticed a week or two ago that some animations don't show and I couldn't figure it out. For example, the ring of fire from showtime wasn't on fire during use, time portal from into the future wasn't glowing, water balloons didn't burst and show water, Genie powers weren't glowing, etc. I'm not the most tech-savvy person, so any help would be very appreciated. Specs: Processor: Intel I5-3570k (1155, Quad-Core, 3.4 GHz boosted 3.8 GHz) Motherboard: Asus P8 Z77 V LK (1155) Graphics Card: Sapphire Radeon HD 7950 Ram: 8GB G. Skill Ripjaws DDR5 Hard drive: 1TB Velociraptor *forgot brand name* The problem occurred even before my custom content. I'm thinking it's probably something to do with my graphics card, but apparently it's supported by the Sims 3. If anymore information is needed feel free to ask.
