Like many others I too am having issues with Sims 2 Apartment Life and the DirectX 9 Graphics Adapter. Please, please, please help me. I do have the latest version of DirectX because when I tried to download it from the website it said I was up to date or equivalent or whatever. I"m usually pretty good with figuring out things on the computer and I hate asking for help. So I really need it when I do. I'm not sure what to do here. I read that I need DirectX 9c so I went on the hunt to get the download and the same message of "up to date.. equivalent..blah blah blah" messgae came up. Does anyone have a solution for me?
