I installed Windows XP through Boot Camp and the graphics for Sims 2 were fine and game play was fine. Having VMware Fusion makes things more convenient so I decided to install it using my Boot Camp partition as the Virtual Machine. Everything runs properly on XP including starting Sims 2. Gameplay runs well too with one big exception: there are 2 graphics problems. I get purple flashing in the neighborhood screen and on the lots walls are red. I set all the graphic options in the game to low and made sure the 3D graphics options in VMware Fusion are enabled. I don't know what to do!
