Yeah, I'm all up to date now. I checked shortly after I got home from work. I only had one small update.

Directx 10 is not supported in the game?

XP doesn't support Directx 10, so selecting that mode would revert back to Directx 9 allowing the game to run.

That would be my best guess.
That actually makes sense. I just relooked as the system requirements, and it said it needed a directx 9 compatible card.

I live in the US, and several years ago, I ran across a video that had that muted audio claim on it. I haven't seen it recently tho. All I have seen recently is just videos that have been removed due to copyright claims, or not available in my country.

Well slap my Teletubby dvds (bonus points if anyone knows where that line is from) I ran it under xp SP3 compatibility with run as admin checked, and it works now. Which is interesting, because one of the first things I tried was selecting windows 7 compatibility with run as admin checked, and that didn't work. The sims 4 CAS demo is brand new, why is it that it will only run on xp, and not windows 8?

I've ran sfc twice now, and it says it found corrupt files, but couldn't repair some of them. The log file makes about as much sense to me as the actual error. I'll post the log file tho if it will be helpful. I am usually pretty good about keeping my computer updated, but windows 8 is very unobtrusive about informing you that you have updates available. I'm not entirely sure what the spring update is tho. I have the start button at the left of the start bar, and the metro apps now have the minimize and x button on them, as well as showing up in the start bar. Is that from the spring update?

1,087 / 1024 = 1.0615234375


I'm terrible with filesizes, so sue me, lol.

well thats just strange. Is there anyway I can get a new one? (the install disk maybe?) the one in the system32 folder is 1.06MB

I just installed the sims 4 create a sim demo, and every time I try to open it, it pops up with window's cryptic, unhelpful error messages.

Does any of that make sense to anyone? I did a little research before posting here, and a few others have this issue too. One suggested uninstalling, and then reinstalling it, which did nothing for me.
Someone also suggested that it might be due to a corrupt user profile, so I created a brand new local admin profile, and had the same issue with that profile.

I'm running windows 8.1 pro x64. My computer also more than meets the system requirements for the demo. I'd really like to get this problem fixed, because I already pre-ordered the sims 4 several months ago, and I don't want to have the same thing happen to it.

edit: just looked in the event viewer.

9  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: Thinking of switching to WP8 from Android on: July 30, 2014, 02:00:17 AM
Thanks @eleman You've made some great points there. I'll probably stick with my nexus 5 after all. I was just looking at the WP app store, and couldn't find some of my must have apps. I was also watching some youtube videos on windows phone, and it does seem a bit to cookie cutter simple to me. There isn't really that much customization to it.
10  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Thinking of switching to WP8 from Android on: July 29, 2014, 11:34:06 PM
So right now, I'm using the Nexus 5, and I love it. Though, I was curious about Windows phone. I was thinking about getting the Nokia Lumia 1520. If anyone that has used both Android, and Windows phone could give me some insight on WP, that would be great. The Nexus 5 is very open and gets the newest version of Android shortly after it is released. How locked down is Windows Phone, and how is Microsoft about updating phones? (are they like nexus phones, or will Microsoft stop updating their phone after like 2 or 3 updates?) On a side note, the Nexus 5 uses a micro sim card, and the Lumia 1520 apparently uses a nano sim card. If I wanted to switch between the two phones periodically, how hard would it be to transfer service between my micro sim card, and the new nano sim card?

Would it be worth it for me to switch, or should I just stick with my Nexus?

Edit: One more thing that is actually kind of a big deal for me. I have my phone paired to my car stereo via bluetooth, and use the pandora controls on the stereo, because I hate all the commercials that FM radio has, and satellite radio is to expensive for me. Will I be able to use the pandora controls with windows phone? Or at the very least, can I use the bluetooth streaming option on my car stereo to atleast skip songs, and pause them?

I went ahead an bought titanium backup. I'm going to pass on Rom Toolbox though. I use multirom with a modified TWRP recovery for my roms, and I don't have a need to change fonts. I also just manually change my boot animation, because I rarely change it anyways. I was tempted to buy Rom Toolbox tho when I saw SassiBob's video was on the page.
12  Main Area and Open Discussion / Non-Windows Software / Re: Android: Looking for true app data backup solution on: July 14, 2014, 06:39:09 PM
paid: both versions.

I might have to give the paid version of Titanium a try then. other than it's backup features, is it worth buying rom toolbox?
13  Main Area and Open Discussion / Non-Windows Software / Re: Android: Looking for true app data backup solution on: July 14, 2014, 06:02:58 PM
A while back when I first got my otg cable, I was able to view my usb drive in twrp. I never tried to actually set it as my backup location tho. I assume it might work. BTW, are you using the free version of Titanium and rom toolbox, or the pro versions?
14  Main Area and Open Discussion / Non-Windows Software / Re: Android: Looking for true app data backup solution on: July 14, 2014, 05:47:01 PM
I use twrp. Is there a way to backup to a usb drive (via an OTG cable) since the N5 doesn't have external storage? The only problem with a nandroid backup is that I want to be able to "copy" all my apps and data to a different rom, which I can't do with a nandroid backup. I was reading that titanium backup can restore from twrp backups. I suppose if I can ever get titanium to actually backup the data, it might be an option.
15  Main Area and Open Discussion / Non-Windows Software / Android: Looking for true app data backup solution on: July 14, 2014, 04:04:29 PM
I'm looking for an app or method to backup both my apps, and my app data. I have a nexus 5, so I don't have an sd card option to backup to. I do however has stickmount, so I could backup to a usb drive. Though, it would be nice if I had the option to backup to a folder on my google drive. I have tried various apps, and they all seem to only know how to backup just the app, and not its data. (meaning, I lose all my progress on any games I have.) I've heard Titanium backup is supposed to be able to backup both the apps, and their data, but when I tried it, it only backed up the apps, and then when I went to restore my backup, it just installed each app one by one, and without the app's data.

Does anyone know of a good free (or free with premium option) app that will actually backup my apps and their data? My phone is rooted, is there some folder that has all of my apps' data that I can just backup?

Would not recommend anything made by Pontiac. I drive a Pontiac Grand am, and little things are always falling off it. (luckily it still runs perfectly though). My girlfriend drives a Pontiac Grand Prix, and she has similar problems with it.

It did not work. It saw one giant monitor, and only let me select one image. Sad

Can I use this with nvidia surround? I've got 3 1080p monitors setup as one giant display.
19  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: Dead Drops - Release your inner P2P spy! :D on: September 29, 2013, 02:28:24 PM
The idea behind it is pretty cool. Kind of like digital geocaching. The problem that I see with it, is there isn't anything but trust and morals to stop someone from putting a virus on one of the dead drops. Yeah, someone who knows a decent amount about tech would know not to open an exe they found on one of the drops, but the average Joe that only knows how to surf the web and check their email, wouldn't know not to open an exe.
20  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: typing in web browser makes it freeze on: September 12, 2013, 11:26:08 PM
I don't know that the issue was caused by desktopheap. I had chrome closed, and just IE open, and when I tried to type something, ie would lock up. Just IE, I could still do anything else on the computer perfectly fine. I also later found out that if I tried to log into steam or the origin client, the same thing would happen. (both chrome and ie were closed when trying this.) I have no clue what the problem was, but I can't do anymore testing to attempt to fix it. I already used driveimage xml to restore my computer back to a clean install. everything works smoothly now. (other than a bug with the newest version of Logitech's gaming software which turns my keyboard and mouse (which isn't even a logitech mouse) into strobe lights)
21  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: PageKite on: September 12, 2013, 04:44:28 PM
watch this episode of hak5. Darren does a segment on pagekite. I'd take the time to figure out the exact time that the segment starts, but my computer has borked bits right now.
I believe he starts talking about it at around 5:30ish

youtube if you prefer that. again, starts at about 5:30ish
22  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: typing in web browser makes it freeze on: September 12, 2013, 01:44:41 PM
Im only using about 38% of my ram. Im guessing it is probably something else. Im done messing with it. Im backing up my stuff and reinstalling windows now
23  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: typing in web browser makes it freeze on: September 12, 2013, 12:26:10 PM
I guess it could be possible that I have to much junk running on my computerin the background. I tend to do that, wich is why I had to reinstall windows every couple of months on my old computer. My current computer has 8 gigs of ram
24  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: typing in web browser makes it freeze on: September 12, 2013, 01:47:09 AM
Im running sfc from my windows install disk, if it doesnt work, then im just going to goto bed and back up my steam files and reinstall windows tomorrow. Thanks for attempting to help me. I really appreciate it.
25  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: typing in web browser makes it freeze on: September 12, 2013, 01:17:03 AM
Yeah, rebooted into safemode. The event viewer wasnt help at all, unless I was looking in the wrong spot. It only told me that chrome and ie stopped Interacting with windows and was closed. Updating my gfx drivers didnt do anything either.
