Graphics Fixing Tutorial

As promised, I come bearing a downloadable tutorial (currently only available as a .doc file, but I'll figure out PDF's soon.)

TS2 Graphics fix tutorial.

Inside are all the correct links for troubleshooting with the Graphics Rules Maker, basic advice for new installs that don't work, and information about removing securom. There's also a section on fixing your resolution if you ran the GRM but still have problems. This file may be updated, and I plan to add downloadables of my existing tutorials and any future ones I make to this folder.

Feel free to link newbies to it, download, write on, redistribute, heck, I don't care if you eat it for breakfast. Play in peace, friends. :)

    Hi :)
    Did you go through the tutorial? What did you do to try to fix it; I rather not repeat what you already did which didn't work.

    This is something that you need to hunt for the instructions for on Leefish. DirectX and related cards have a few extra steps. (Googling Leefish graphics fix DirectX should take you there if there's no link in the pages my tutorial takes you to.)

    Thank you very much for this. I kinda did everything already but forgot to save the pages and am now starting fresh so that doc is exactly what I needed.
