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.

  1. 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.
  2. download a hex editor, hxd is a personal recommendation.
  3. open the hex editor and open the no-cd crack.

  4. search for hex value 20 03 00 00 C7 45 E0 58 02 00 00 6A 01.

  5. change 20 03 to 80 07 and 58 02 to 38 04.

  6. save the changes you have made.
  7. download the fixed uigraphics package here.
  8. merge the uigraphics folder from the package with the uigraphics folder in your sims installation directory.

and that's everything you need to do! enjoy playing the sims 1 in a better resolution!
