Whenever I try to open DMC4 this message shows up "error6: unsupported pixel shader version 2.0"


Hello
Pixel shader error is usually beacase your video device or video card is not able to run the game.

You can try going to your video device manufacture website and downloading and installing the latest video drivers.

If this doesnt work, your going to need to get a new better video card Nvidia and Ati are two good cards for gaming,please make sure your motherboard will be able to support what ever video device you decide to buy.

The ATI Radeon 9250 card only supports Pixel Shader version 1.1 or 1.4 and older. It will not support Pixel Shader version 2.0. You would need to upgrade your graphics card if your game or application requires Pixel Shader 2.0.

Resident evil 5 benchmark unsupported pixel shader version 2.0


The game needs Pixel Shader 3 support, which is found on GeForce 6 series and up, and Radeon X1k series and up,

Sorry but a video card upgrade is a must to play this game.
If you're trying to run it on a laptop then you are probably out of luck as they're not upgradable.

Seems like your graphic card is not supported. Its a older version. My first solution would be update your driver for your graphics card: http://driver.wareseeker.com/download/visiontek-radeon-9250-agp-8.072.rar/1e97d07a01 or http://www.soft32.com/Download/Free/VISIONTEK_RADEON_9250_AGP/4-172246-1.html

If that doesn't fix it (which I don't think it will), you might just have to buy yourself a better graphics card and/or computer.

ERROR: Un supported pixel shader version detected, 2.0


You get this error because your graphic-card (architecture) is too old to run the game. To run the game you need a graphic-card which supports at least pixel shader 3.0, whil your card "only" has 2.1.

In case you're sure your card supports pixel shader 3.0, you'll need to update the graphic driver and/or DirectX (component of Windows) to the latest version(s) and try again.

If you're not sure wether your card support pixel shaders 3.0, you can post the brand, name and type of your graphic card here and I'll reply. When the card doesn't support 3.0, there is no other solution than simply buying a newer card (or don't play the game).

Cannot play FIFA09


Uh oh. It looks like you're out of luck.

FIFA 09 PC Requirement (minimum):
Graphics: 6600 Nvidia graphics card or ATI equivalent with support for Pixel Shader 3
DirectX Version: DirectX 9.0c"

Nvidia 6600 came out at 2004 and it supports DirectX 9.0C (Shader 3 came with 9.0C)
ATI Radeon 9200 came out at 2003 and only support DirectX 8.1 (which support shader 1.2 - 1.4)

Nope, Radeon 9200 will not support Shader 3 (neither will it support 2.0).

Time for a new video card maybe?

I hope this answers your question.

Pixel shader


A pixel shader computes color and other attributes of each pixel. Pixel shaders range from always outputting the same color, to applying a lighting value, to doing bump mapping, shadows, specular highlights, translucency and other phenomena. A pixel shader alone cannot produce very complex effects, because it operates only on a single pixel, without knowledge of a scene's geometry or of neighboring pixels. A pixel shader is a computation kernel function. Pixel shaders can alter the depth of the pixel (for Z-buffering), or output more than one color if multiple render targets are active

Pixel Shader is a hardware capability. It must be supported by the graphics card. Sounds like your graphics card will not work with the game you purchased. To answer your question directly, you will need to install a graphics card that supports Pixel Shaders to be able to run games which need it.
The following cards support Shader Model 1.x: - ATI Radeon 85xx Series (1.4) - ATI Radeon 9000 Series (1.4) - ATI Radeon 9100 Series (1.4) - ATI Radeon 92xx Series (1.4) - NVIDIA GeForce3 Ti (1.1) - NVIDIA GeForce4 Ti (1.3)
