Oh wow, this sucks. According to this review page , the Dell Dimension 2400 doesn't even HAVE an AGP slot, never mind PCI-E. You'd be better off giving that Dell to your grandmother or someone, and buying a new computer. Buy this system featured on NCIX's USA site . An HD4830 will handle SCS no swea...

It's your integrated video. Even a Geforce 7x00 series card should be able to handle SCS. The only issue is whether or not you can get an AGP or PCI-E card.

Good luck!

Can EA be persuaded to resume SCS?

Re: this post , we apparently have an orphaned game situation where Tilted Mill nominally still supports SCS through these forums, but can no longer issue patches etc. So, can EA be persuaded to issue future patches that can clean the game up somewhat and make it a pleasant game experience for more ...

I did a proof of concept with a Geforce 7100GS; am surprised a GF 420 would be able to play the game at all!

I also found a 7600GT and 7600GS could handle it passably, but an ATI HD3450 was useless. I think it's because the HD34xx and 36xx series are optimized for media playing rather than gaming.

I noticed I'd get crashes after ~ 1 hr with an HD4850 in an A64 X2 4600+ box with 2 gigs of RAM + Vista 32bit. I put it down to either wonky ATI drivers or just inadequate cooling. The HD4850 is one of the first gen with stock cooling, so... y'know. I'll be giving it a go eventually on a HD4870 with...

Y'all are making me itch to resurrect my E5200 OCed to 3 GHz + my XFX HD4870 (1 gig, factory OCed) :)

I've been using an X2 4600+ (OCed to 2.64 GHz) because I needed a land computer to do my thesis on. But I feel the pull.... :) (and I sold my HD4850 and an HD3450 just does not cut it for SCS)

Have you checked that your DVD drive is functioning? Are there scratches on the game DVD? Are you running any "fake CD" type utilities?

Speaking of the police boxes. What I noticed is that they will flicker like crazy only when a police car is parked in the strip mall, if you build one.

First of all, thanks for all the feedback. Instead of upgrading the old laptop, (and running the risk of it not working) I am just going out after Christmas and just buying a new one. Maybe one of these days I will have as much fun as others have with SCS. Say, did you ever get a beefy desktop or s...

You need a "Public Safety" building or a "Dept of Public Works". They will do repairs faster than leaving buildings to naturally be repaired. :)

Ah :) I wondered why the textures looked different, though I assumed you might have had SCS Destinations. :)

Looking forward to seeing how it plays out in the game. :)
