    Ok, this is my first post here, Im Portuguese and my inglish may not be the best :p
    This is my problem, I got Windows XP and when I install old games, like Baldurs Gate 2, Lion Heart, IceWind Dale 2 and today The Sims 1 (with the House party expansion) my screen gives me a big problem, as soon as I start the game this horizontal stripes, red and green, start blinking in the all screen.
    In the case of IceWind and BG2 all I had to do was playing with the game windowed, but I dont think I can with Sims1

    What I ask is, can someone explain what is this screen problem and how can I fixed it? Or if you can tell me how to play the game in window mode thats fine by me.
