Sims 2 Double Deluxe plus Pets expansion, crashing on startup Hi all, another newbie with an aggravating problem here. I recently installed Sims 2 Double Deluxe, tinkered around with it a bit, went through the tutorial and created a test family to make sure everything worked - no problems. Then I installed the Pets expansion, and now when I try to start the game, it gets through the intro video but then crashes in the splash screen. I've installed the Pets patch from the EA site, but it wouldn't let me install the Nightlife patch since it says I don't have that expansion (I assume because it's part of Double Deluxe, not a separate disc?). I've updated my audio and video drivers but it made no difference. I've tried running the game in compatibility mode with Windows 2000/ME, but that just caused it to not recognize the CD in the drive. I've tried uninstalling Pets and starting over, but still no difference. Oh, also, I never installed the Sims 2 Download Manager that came with Double Deluxe... does that possibly matter? Here are my specs... Processor: AMD Athlon 64 Processor 3800+, MMX, 3DNow, ~2.4GHz System Memory RAM: 446MB RAM Windows Version: XP Free Hard Disk Space: 20.4GB Total Hard Disk Space: 119GB DirectX Version: 9.0c (4.09.0000.0904) Display Adapter: NVIDIA GeForce 6150 LE Display Driver Name and Version Number & date: nv4_disp.dll 6.14.0011.9562 11/20/2009 Approximate Total Video Memory: 256MB Game Detail: Sims 2 Double Deluxe + Pets expansion (DD worked fine until Pets was installed) Any input would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
