So. My game seems to believe that I don't have DirectX installed, or at least it can't find it. I've played a bit, and within an hour and a half of playing, it crashes with that D3DERR_NOTAVAILABLE error message. Now, DirectX exists on my PC and is updated and everything, so it's got to be some kind of game corruption.

Last weekend, I backed up all my neighborhoods, sims, CC, etc. and did a fresh reinstall of the game. Maybe that will fix it. Maybe it won't. I will say, it doesn't do a whole lot for my desire to play, when I am constantly afraid of the game crashing. Especially when I can load Warcraft: Cataclysm in seconds and be playing a game and relaxing from work. (I need to winnow out my CC again, there's so much my game takes 35+ minutes to load.)

The fact that Warcraft: Cataclysm plays fine for hours and hours and hours also speaks well of the fact that DirectX is working normally for everything but the Sims. Wouldn't be able to do all the other graphically intense things I do daily if it wasn't!

At least I have some little bits of the Eighties and my Funny Farm challenge played. I hope to post them soon.
