Shader isssues?

Q: Shader isssues?

Especially on my fps games, mainly anything HL2 based (CS, Dark Messiah of Might and Magic, etc) when I go into the shadows my hands or other textures on the walls become shiny or glossy when they definatly shouldn't.

Its not a HUGE issue, but it irks me just a tad that something isnt going right.

I have the latest Nvidia Drivers for my Geforce 6600.

I have a 17in Samsung LCD, 1.5 Ghz Ram, 2.17 Ghz AMD processor.

Anything to help would be appreciated.

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

hi guys i just want to know what is pixel shader and can we increase pixel shader virtually

A:hat is pixel shader and can we increase pixel shader virtually

Pixel shading is what makes computer graphics seem so real. It works on a pixel by pixel basis, determining the lighting, shading, and color of each pixel - bringing infinite possibilities.

If I'm correct, anti-aliasing, anisotropic filtering, etc will affect pixel shading. For ATI, this can be done through Catalyst. NVidia settings should do the same.

Not sure what you mean by virtually...

Hi, I have bought two P53 and they both had issues. When I returned the 2nd one, the case manager gave me a hard time to return my machine. I want to make sure that everything has been resolved before considering it again. Do you have these issues? What other issues do you have? P53 OLED----------- Ugly looking grids across the screen espcially the background is white. Is it due to the way Lenovo implemented the touch screen?- Becaues of the grids, letters are not solid nor good looking most of the time.- Coil Whine especially when the RTX GPU is pushed- Images are not much better looking than those from IPS screen. In some cases, pixelation when viewing videos is even worse (more ugier looking blocks of dark images).  P53 IPS 4K------------ Wrobble at the bottom as reported by several users- LCD screen cannot be closed. Very large gap between the screen and the keyboard part- Backlight bleeding- Coil Whine especially when the RTX GPU is pushed- Noisy fans

Hi
Lately at a start up it takes my computer long time to establish network connection .The skype icon takes a long time to get green and the network icon is probing for a long time , what is most unusuall that i have a data streaming program that is connected immediately to the internet and the data streaming is working perfectly while the rest of the computer is still searching for it , while probing i cannot open Explorer/FireFox.
It is like i have 2 kinds of connections in 1 computer. the computer itself is connected to a router and another computer that is working on the same router does not suffer the same issues, i guess in one of the updates something has changed but i cannot put my finger on the cause.
Thank you

Hi please try a system restore to a point before the issue first occurred.

If issue still persists is this a wired or wireless connection.

Turn off the data streaming program and see if things improve.

When my son plays Lego Star wars the game freezes and only audio plays. A message displays that we need a 'shader ver. 1.1' for our All In Wonder ATI 9800 Pro. I have downloaded the newest drivers from the Nvidia/ATI site, which looks as though they do not support the older cards anymore. Does anyone have a suggestions as to how to fix this problem? I have also removed the card and re-inserted it, and re-installed the drivers once to see if that would help. Is there an older driver set-up that would work best for me. The newest game that I am running at the moment would be 'Prey' and 'Halo' along with the Lego Starwars game.

AMD claims that it's Shader Model 5.0.

Are you concerned that the game isn't playable, or just worried that the tool from systemrequirementslab is showing Model 4?

Hello everyone.

I recently bought Black & White 2, a somewhat outdated game. I install the game, go to run it, and I get an error message saying my video card isn't compatible with pixel shader 1.1 . I'm currently using an nvidia geforce4 mx420 card, my OS is windows xp, i've got 1024 RAM and a pent 4 processor.

I consulted the readme file, which directed me to update the driver. I've spent the last hour or so looking for the correct driver download, and for the life of me I can't find it.

Is there anything else I can do to get this game running? And if not, what are some good medium-range cards I should look into?

P.S. I'm aware people usually ask for information about the motherboard and such, but I'm not entirely computer literate and don't know how to find this info.

Thanks for your help and patience.
 

A:Pixel Shader 1.1 Incompatibility

Hi and welcome to Techspot

First uninstall any old driver files you may have. Go to Add/Remove programs in Control Panel, and look for something like "Nvidia display driver"

Then install this driver (click me) and try again.

Regards =)

Need help with upgrading my pixel shader, and video card advice

I have a dell dimension 2400 and I want to buy this game(Hellgate London) thats coming out it requires 2.0 pixel shader. I dont think i have 2.0. Nvidia XFX GeForce 5200 was recomend to me for my machine. Will that upgrade me to 2.0 pixel shader? Also is this compatible with my machine? Another thing is 256 MB RADEON HD 2400 Full Height Graphics Card for Dell OptiPlex 755 Desktop, is that compatible with my machine and if so will that upgrade my pixel shader? And obviously if not how do i upgrade my pixel shader? These are the games requirements

* OS: Windows XP with SP2 or Windows Vista
* Processor: 1 .8GHz or faster (2.4GHz for Vista)
* RAM: 1GB or more (2GB for Vista)
* Video: DirectX 9.0c/10 compatible device w/ 128MB RAM or better and Pixel Shader 2.0 support; requires NVIDIA GeForce 6200/ATI Radeon 9000 chipset or greater
* Audio: DirectX 9.0c compatible device
* Disc drive: 8x DVD or faster
* Hard drive: 6 GB or more free space
* Input: Keyboard and mouse
* Internet: Connection required for multiplayer



The video is the only part Im wary about, please tell me my options .
 

A:Need help with upgrading my pixel shader

You cant upgrade a pixel shader, that's a process that's in your video card. And remember that the recommended specs for a game is to run it on low details. At minimum in most cases. We also need to know your pc specs?

I picked up Fable: The Lost Chapters today and have come to the sad realization that my graphics card is not compatible to a degree. My problem is that the ground textures will not load, it is smooth and gray and water is yellow, which I assume stems from the shadow option in the overall video options. After having found that the video card was not compatible (a VIA SG3 card and an Intel 845G) I came here in hopes that someone would know of a possible work around or perhaps some sort of emulator that would help fix the problem. I am hoping that it is nothing more than a simple download patch or "codex" of sorts but I realize that hope is a bit far fetched...
 

A:In need of pixel shader advice

Make sure you have the latest driver and directx versions. If that doesnt help, then you will probably need to buy a new graphics card.

I recently bought Black & White 2, realising my computer was in need of an update i bought a DvD drive (as b&w is in dvd format)

after installing the game i restarted and tried to load B&W 2,
there was an error stating that b&w only supports graphics cards compatible with pixel shader 1.1, i looked at the readme and decided to try and update my graphics card driver, so i downoaded that and ran it... another error, my computer does not have the minimal requirements for the update.

first of all, how do i know the graphics card i buy will be pixel shader 1.1 compatible? as doing my research i have not found this in the product specification

would you reccomend geting one over 100 ? as these things get really expensive and i hope i dont need the latest one to play.

lastly my computer has 510mb Ram, the game reccomends 512mb or higer, will this disrupt my gaming experience? (i would love to have a faster computer but as always im trying to save for other things)

Thankyou for any guidence, explanation or reccomendations you could give
 

A:Pixel Shader Compatible?

i wouldnt go for a graphics card, that is below the ATI Radeon 9600 or Nvidia 6200 otherwise you will have an insano pants card for games like that... ideally i would go for a ATI 9800 or Nvidia 6600... but if money is a lil bit tight then 9600XT 256Mb. thats my opinion.

or if money isnt really a prob then X800/6800 of some form lol.
