    What is the TSOclientDX9.exe? There is a plain TSOClient.exe, which one do we use?

    BTW, I just delete my shortcut and redid it and it didn't work. I was never able to get windowed mode with the shortcuts suggested on here. I have to use the game shortcuts and change my resolution and then I get windowed mode.

    When you inititially log in, there is an option to log into TC3(test). If I am not mistaken (which I probably am), the DX9 file is associated with that and is dependant on which version of DirectX you are using. Anyone know for sure?

    The plain TSOClient.exe is the file. [​IMG]

    I'm still having this problem and I'm making the shortcuts directly from the files in the directories? Has anyone found a fix for this yet?

    In the tips section they gave great information how to fix for multiplaying your sims... when I copy/pasted their suggestion, didn't work for me.. however... when I just copied the ending section of what I didn't have on my target line (properities on the tsoclient.exe shortcut), it worked well...

    "C:\Program Files\Electronic Arts\EA-Land\TSOClient\TSOClient.exe" -r800x600 "-CSCity:EA Land"

    That is my workable target line to view all my sims no matter which window I'm playing/selecting in... able to scroll to every sim to view/play.
    What I did .. I had this : "C:\Program Files\Electronic Arts\EA-Land\TSOClient\TSOClient.exe" -r800x600

    Then I made a space after the 600 and added the rest.. was the only way I could get mine to work on my two pc's.
    Good luck!
     
  9. YAY I finally got mine fixed!

    My problem was that I did not change my "start in" line, I still had it addressed to the patch!
