how to get 1920x1080 on the sims 1

the sims 1 locks you to either 800x600 or 1024x768. this guide will show you how to get proper 1920x1080 resolution. credit for fixed uigraphics here.

disclaimer: as the title of the page implies, this guide was made for people using 1920x1080. weird side-effects may happen if you run at a lower or higher resolution.

  • get a no-cd crack for the sims. you can get one here or you can download a pre-patched crack here to skip steps 2-6.
  • download a hex editor, hxd is a personal recommendation.
  • open the hex editor and open the no-cd crack.
