Finally: I updated my Archives

So I don't know if you have noticed or not, but I just updated my "Archives" page! Yes - I actually updated them.

I tried before but had real difficulty working out how to show the pictures - I settled on slideshows created with Photosnack. I love that site now :D!

I still need to create a couple more slideshows but I'm getting there :).

What d'ya think?

Sims 3 Crashing? DEP Fix for Windows

Recently I ordered Sims 3 Showtime and Supernatural. When they arrived I installed them and started my game. Then, my game crashed. I hadn't got past the title screen!

Luckily, I knew what the problem was. I had forgotten to add Showtime and Supernatural's .exe files to my DEP (Data Execution Prevention). So, I added them to my DEP and rebooted my computer. It worked! Yay!

If this is happening to you, with any expansion or even the base game then DEP may be your solution. A helpful tutorial for Windows 7 users can be found here by games4theworld. I have Windows Vista, and I will show you how to fix this crashing problem with DEP (if that is the cause) with pictures and text - isn't this exciting!

On to the tutorial...


Have you ever started up your beloved Sims 3 game to have it crash right in front of your very eyes? Sometimes it crashes on the title screen, other times while you're playing the game (which is extremely annoying!).

Do you see this pop up message?

Me thinks it's time to fix your DEP settings!

Dear people of the world,
I am happy to announce that "The Diamond Legacy" blog is officially open!

*cuts ribbon with scissors*

You can visit it by clicking on the link above, or by clicking/vising the URL:

I hope you'll take a look around. Only two chapters are uploaded so far; I hope to upload the rest (so far) tonight :)! And I have edited some of the text from the originals (that were in Sensation) to give you an even better reading experience ;). But don't worry, it doesn't change the story so if you've already read the chapters in Sensation you'll be fine hehe.
