  1. i have just installed the sims 2 in my pc, and i found out that S3 Graphics ProSavageDDR is not compatible with the game.

    can i just update my driver so that i can play the game or is it necessary to change the driver?

    if i need to update the driver, what site can you recommend me? i saw one in the other thread the site but it's not working already.

    if i need to change my driver, how much will it cost me?

    thanks..

    hey, thanks! so, i just really can't play the game!

    Card name: S3 Graphics ProSavageDDR
    Manufacturer: S3 Graphics, Inc.
    D3D9 Test Result: Display driver does not support API (DDI version too low)---> it says right here! :(

    i think i'm going back playing the sims 1! :(
