I realize there is many other threads about Sims 2 and the DirectX but after browsing through a bunch, have yet to find one that fully helped me. So, I installed the Sims 2 and the Sims 2 nightlife expansion back on Windows XP on Boot Camp so I'm using a Macbook and whenever I try and run the game I get the error "Failed to find any DirectX 9.0c compatible graphics adapters in this system! Please make sure you have a direct X9.0c compatible graphics adapter and have installed the latest drivers provided by the manufacturer. The application will now terminate." But when you initially install Sims 2 you have to install DirectX 9 anyways, so I know it's already installed so I don't understand, and haven't a clue as what to do. I tried reinstalling it, but still no changes. Any help would be appreciated...and if you need more info or anything I'll give it to ya! Thanks!
