My PC/Laptop display screen sizing looks strange. See below.

Note: This is a very rare PC display issue which also likely is impacting most of your other PC programs and Fonts and desktop Icons.

This issue is not directly related to your SIMS software.

SIMS symptions: Various screens in SIMS show screen forms sizing weirdness, overlapping, cropping, etc.

Solution: DPI Settings.

    Windows 10: via Settings | System | Display. Set "Scale and layout" = 100%
    Windows 7: via Control Panel | Display. Please use 100% the default.
    Windows XP: Please use Normal Size, 96 DPI.



Screen in Control Panel showing how to fix.

Windows 10




Windows 7




Windows XP





Below is an example showing SIMS 2000 main menu screen with incorrect DPI settings issues.

Another possibility, pretty rare as we've only heard of this one once.

On Windows 7 or 8, likely a laptop, maybe NVideo video card, only certain larger monitors...

Check: The Registry setting KEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Fonts\MS Sans Serif 8,10,12,14,18,24 if set to SSERIFF.FON was on a system which started at 125% DPI. The setting is supposed to be set to SSERIFE.FON on a system which started at 100% DPI. Notice that one character of the file name changes from F to E. E is the correct character.

The solution is simple: Change SSERIFF.FON to be SSERIFE.FON, the FF to FE. See Windows registry, 3 easy edits to complete the fix.

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Fonts]
"MS Sans Serif 8,10,12,14,18,24"="SSERIFE.FON"
"MS Serif 8,10,12,14,18,24"="SERIFE.FON"
"Courier 10,12,15"="COURE.FON"
