Hi there,

I am trying to install Lego Star Wars onto a machine and it comes up with an
error message saying can't play the game due to not having Pixel Shaders
v.1.1 in it.

Does the Pixel Shaders come with the Direct X? I have Direct X 9 in the
machine. Or does Pixel Shaders come with the video card itself?

Thanks,

Gordon

Both. The Pixel shader is a hardware acceleration feature and needs tobe
supported by your graphics card. Furthermore you need the latest drivers and
DirectX runtime too.

Hi Rehan,

I have a GeForce 4 Nvidia graphics card 128 mb memory....

Shouldn't it be working with that graphics card?

Thanks,

Gordon

To me it says that my graphic card cant support the pixel shaders
v1.1. My graphic card is a GForce 4 MX whith 64mb of memory. Shouldnt

The GeForce4 does not have hardware pixel shader support.

You'll need to get a more modern video card.
