Okay, I read most of the other threads that are dealing with the Sims2 and getting a DirectX 9.0c graphics adapter. First off it said for me to download 9.0c, so I did, and my DxDiag says "DirectX Version : DirectX 9.0c". So I thought it'd work. Then it came up with the thing sayinf I needed a DirectX 9.0c graphics adapter. I called Wal-Mart and asked what it was and the guy said it was a card. But they don't carry them. And they said no place in Crestview(the town I live in, in Florida) carries them. So. If anyone could help me: a) Find one online for a decent price I think I need a Radeon 9000+ and b) How and where I install it at would be SO very useful. Please and thank you.
