Hey all. I have a unibody Pro, 2.4ghz, 4 gigs of ram and using the "best performance" setting in the energy saver preferences to use my good GPU and I get extremely low framerates in The Sims 3. My girlfriend loves this game and it runs like crap on her macbook so I let her install it here and I feel bad because it runs, but extremely slowly. I tried changing the graphical settings from the default maxed out options to medium, then after not seeing any improvement I put the settings ALL on low and turned off the advanced shaders and reflections, the bare minimum, and still got 15 frames per second maximum when zoomed out, then when zoomed in on my characters I got 5-7 fps these are the same exact speeds I got at max settings. I tried removing the game and all traces of it and reinstalling and still have the same result. Then I tried blasting the fans to keep the gpu/cpu temps down and still no luck. Also there are NO apps running in the background during gameplay. I always have my computer on "better battery life" and switch on the GPU just to play so it logs out, and when I log in I make sure nothing is running before starting up the game. Any input, ideas or solutions? Thanks in advance!
