Do not have Pixel Shader

I purchased Paws & Claws Pampered Pets at Best Buy. When installing the program, it says I can't run it without Pixel Shader model 1.1. Apparently it is not on my computer. Can I download it? Can I return the software if I can't get this? Any suggestions?

Thank you,

Pixel Shader is a hardware capability. Therefore, it is not possible to download it - it must be supported by the graphics card.
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)
Sorry you're going to have to upgrade your video card or return the software...

Consult your video card manual. If it supports pixelshaders - update the drivers. If there is no mention of it - yes, you need a new card. Or you could try some emulation software, but I do not recommend doing that.

I need to upgrade the video card for my Gateway 7330GZ laptop


Hey,

looked over the spesifications of your laptop, the video card thats build into the laptop doesn't have pixel shader 2 support and it can't be replaced since its build into the motherboard.

noting you can do about it, other than buy a newer laptop with a better video card, almost any ati or nvidia card will do, if your going to buy one you can check in with me and I'll make sure its got what it needs to run the game or you can ask the sales people to check on it before you purchase it.

Thanks,
Ekse

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).

Your video card is not adequate for this game. There are many different types of cards on the market and most new games require high end cards for all the shading and lighting effects. ATI and NVIDIA have exellent products and recommend upgrading video card.

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)

This means your computer's video hardware does not support this feature. You're not going to like this, but the only solution is to upgrade your hardware. Depending on what type of computer you have you may be able to add a new video card.

Good luck.

Unfortunately, you'll have to get a better video card if you want to play the game.
