OK. So I'm a Sims 2 junkie, I admit it. I spend hours downloading houses and clothes and dressing up my Sims and creating elaborate lives for them.
Tonight I went to play my game. I was happily playing God when suddenly an error dialog box popped up on the screen. This is exactly what it said:
"Direct 3D returned an error: D3DERR_NOTAVAILABLE! The application will now terminate."
Cue the weeping and gnashing of teeth, because my Sim had just achieved the level of Dream Date. And I didn't get a chance to save my game, and my Sim is a TOTAL geek so I may never get him on a date again, let alone a dream date.
Does anyone know what this error means? I mean, I know it's likely got something to do with DirectX, but....how do I fix it? Heeeeeeelp.
If not for me, then at least for the sake of Al Einstein's love life!
