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.

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.

I HAVE A GAME KUNG FU PANDA AND MY VIDEO CARD WILL NOT ALLOW THE GAME TO PLAY iT STATES I MUST HAVE AT LEAST SHADER MODE 2.0 TO RUN..CAN I BYPASS THIS OR TURN OFF SHADER SO THE GAME CAN BE PLAYED


Without a driver hack, you must have a DirectX 9 compatible card to run games using pixel/vertex shader mode 2.0.

Even with a hack, which may or may not violate your end-user policy or warranty, you will not get the 2.0 effects - it just bypasses the calls.
