 It isn't software like DirectX is, it's built into the hardware of your graphics card. A lot of games say they require "Pixel Shader 2.0 or higher" - this just means your graphics card has to have it. If your graphics card hasn't got a pixel shader and your game won't run, then you'll need a new card that's got it.

Unfortunately it isn't something you can download and install from the internet.. The shader is calculating rendering effects in the graphic card.. The problem is it that your graphic card doesn't support/have shader 2.0.. You will need to replace your graphic card with a newer to get it..

I Need To Get Shader Model 3.0 But Not Sure How Or Where To Get It.


Shader Model may be part of the video card. Hence, it does not support the game.

I just purchased need for speed hott pursuit from EA games n it doesnt work on my laptop, a message shows that system require a "shader model 3 " is this model compactible with this game or not?


If you get this message it means the video card in the laptop is not compatible with the game, probably because it is too old. A shader is a set of software instructions used to calculate rendering effects on graphics hardware. Most modern graphics hardware is compatible with shader model 3.

Cardinal Rule 1
NEVER PLAY GAMES ON YOU MACHINE....
Cardinal Rule 2
If you insist to play games....go to a galeria and use the games video machine there.....
a few $ spent there will save your laptop....
Laptops are not ment for playing heavy games that require strong graphic card and heavy RAMs...

It sounds like your graphics card does not have the specs to support the game.

When i try to play bully game on my PC i have error mesage '' Bully requires a 32 bit display, and vertex and pixel shader model 3.0 support what to do? thx russ


Im afraid this means your graphics card does not have pixel shader support- if you have a good processor speed download a pixel shader emulator otherwise you will need a new graphicscard that supports pixel shaders version 3

Crazy graphics misfire on Bioshock. Makes it totally unplayable. What do I need to do? New drivers? Help. I'm a relative newbie at this.


your graphics card cannot display the newer shader models this game uses. That is why everything looks as odd as it does. shader models are only upgradeable via hardware not software so new drivers wont help. and typically you cannot upgrade GFX on laptops. Sorry, you will need a Desktop system with a 6x nvidia chipset or ATI of similar power. I'd recommend though the 8x series though. (8800 or higher or equivilant)

Graphics card


Unfortunately, it sounds like you will need a new graphics card to run that game. Pixel shaders are built into the graphic card hardware and there is no way to download or install them. According to the games system requirements you need a 100% compatible Directx 9.0C card. If you post the make and model of your computer(or motherboard) I could recommend a card for you.
