sims medieval won't recognise videocard

I jsut installed the sims medieval again after not playing for many years but the game doesn't recognise my videocard. This happened when i installed the sims 3 aswell so i i downloaded the updated graphics cards and graphics cards rules files so they would work. the problem is when i place these files in the sims medieval the game won't launch this is probably because besides the those files it also has a GraphicsDB file. I have no idea what this does and if this needs to be updated aswell. Does anyone know how to make the game recognise my videocard?

    The Graphic Rule Maker can fix this issue for people. You can click on the find game and make it find the The Sims Medieval, too, in case someone didn't know this.

    I'm running it in windows 11, To enable cheats you need to do it a different way in the directory you have game: C: Program Files (x86)\The Sims Medieval\GameData\Shared\NonPackaged\Ini\open the file in notepad and turn TestingCheatsEnabled=0 to TestingCheatsEnabled=1Save the file and close it.
    For your graphics card to be recognized I would suggest viewing A CottonSock Sims 3 fixes
    These fixes work for Sims Medieval as I have used them. Works excellent for Sims 3 using all packs, doesn't even run hot.

    That is also the issue I have but then it was solved or fixed. If you still have your disc and have the game key codes in your disc you can keep and take note of that... Download The Sims Medieval in your EA Account (Origin will be gone by the end of this year) on your EA Play platform or Origin and input the game key code from your disk.. You will have to play The Sims Medieval in your EA Play or Origin account.
