  1. Hey guys, I need some help over here. I've been reading other posts about other people getting the game message, & I guess it helps them, but I have a different graphic card installed in my desktop. It's NVIDIA GeForce 6150 LE. I already installed & downloaded the Directx 9.0c, but it still doesn't work.

    OH MY GOD. You're a genuis! THANK YOU SO MUCH. It is really working! I will never forget you. The day you helped me! Yay, I get to play now. I thought it'd be such a waste since I used my money to buy the whole collection of Sims 2. All I need to complete is 4 more STUFF packs. But thank you so much! You're the best! Keep in touch! :)
