Question about Eidos Interactive Ancient Wars: Sparta for Windows, Mac, DOS
Pixel and vertex shaders are operations the video card may be capable of, sometimes the hardware is capable but the driver or directx are old and don't support this features. Check if your video card has pixel shading by looking at its specs in the manufacturer site, if it is update drivers if it is not you're out of luck. Though it is possible to do do shading by software, if this operation is not hardware accelerated makes the rendering very expensive time wise an thus slow.

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).
