Help with Sims 2 on Windows 10
Hi all! I just got a new gaming laptop and am trying to run the Sims 2 on Windows 10. I can open the game in windowed mode but not full screen. I get the "failed to find directx" error. I have already tried following the instructions here: I have also tried the Graphics Rule Maker and no luck there either.
I believe my latest EP is FreeTime- that is the CD I have to use to start the game. I made the edits to Graphic Rules and Video Cards in the Free Time folder under Program Files.
Any help or suggestions on other things to try is appreciated!
