    I have also had the message Pixel shader unavailable, I even downloaded $30 worth of new drivers thinking maybe that would solve the problem, to no avail.

What to do to play simms 3 on a T2792 emachine. says i need a pixel shader2.0 ?


Hmm... It looks like you may have an older graphics card. Pixel Shader 2.0 is the shader version on a graphics card. You may need to upgrade your video card. I'm sorry, but there is really no way to get around the Pixel Shader restriction other than having a graphics card that HAS Pixel Shader 2.0 or above. You may want to visit newegg.com or tigerdirect.com to see how much this upgrade will cost. Ebay could also have some deals for you. To find out what card you CURRENTLY have, use the "RUN" tool in Windows, and type in "dxdiag". The display tab within dxdiag will show you what card you currently have. I hope this helps.

After loading pet vet 2, window appears..pixel shader unavailable...what do I need?


PIxel shader unavailable would point to your video adapter being too old for this game. You would need to buy a newer videocard if your pc has a free slot.

I bought to my son PC CD ROM Wildlife Park 2. I tried to install program according to the recomendation. If I tried to start the program I am receiving the information that vertex and pixel shader version...


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)

A Pixel shader is used in graphics rendering and object detailing when drawing graphics on your computer. Try downloading either glide or Direct3D which specialise in that sort of thing.

What is pixel shader


Here is the answer right of Wikepedia.

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.

Its saying pixel shader not available


Hello,

I assume that you are gettign this error message when you try playing a game. Pixel Shader is a part of the video driver of the computer and cannot be installed separately. It comes all the geforce4 and higher video cards. If you are not using these cards, you may have to upgrade the video card to resolve the issue. If your video card falls into this category, you need to reinstall the video driver.

Hope this helps!
