No, the Pixel Shader version describes the capability of your hardware. If you're getting that error from a game you will probably need to upgrade your video card. There is a way though to use software emulation but its best if you have the actual hardware that uses pixel shader.

What is a video card 256MB directX 9.0C compliant pixel shader 2?

These are the minimum specifications required for a video card to work with whatever product you are reading those statistics from. Many companies have made video cards with those specifications, ask a sales clerk to help you at a computer parts store. Or use the search functions on a computer parts website and you will find a variety of cards that meet or exceed those numbers. Whatever product you are reading those statistics from is asking for a video card with: 256mb of video ram; the ability to use directx 9.0c (or higher) and comply with pixel shader 2.0 technology. Video cards with those specifications have been around for at least 7 years and are on the cheaper end of cards currently available.


Where can you download the Shader Model 2.0 for free?

You can't download it. Its a program inside the Video Card. I would recomend buying a video card that has Shader model 2.0... Its all in the new video cards for the new era of gaming, etc... I am a big gamer and a storm chaser for The Weather Channel. Vortex 2. I have researched this same question for years in the past and have only found out that it is just a program inside your video card. I use Shader Model 2 for games and for Storm Chasing programs. I bought a video card that supports it for all my laptops and desktops from eBay and Craigslist. You will def. find it cheaper there. But if not, try going to Circuit City, in which they are closing all stores nation wide (Big Clearance Sales). You could also try Best Buy, WalMart, Target or even GameStop... Hope this answered your question... Good Luck.

I am trying to download paws and claws pet vet 2 but your computer said pixel shader unavailable what do you do?

Pixel shader technology is hard-coded into your video card and its drivers. While it is possible to emulate pixel shader using software like 3danalyze or swiftshader, these programs only shuffle the workload off to your CPU. Unless you have a hugely powerful system, emulating pixel shader will most likely result in uacceptably low performance and/or system instability. Therefore, your best option is to upgrade your system with a new video card which has pixel shader support built-in.

You are trying to play Black and white 2 but it says you need pixel shader 1.1 do you need new graph card or can you download some update?

Pixel shader technology is hard-coded into your video card and its drivers. While it is possible to emulate pixel shader using software like 3danalyze or swiftshader, doing so only shuffles the workload over to your CPU. Unless you have a hugely powerful system, emulating pixel shader will likely result in unacceptably low performance and/or system instability. Im afraid your best option is to simply replace your video card with one which has native support for pixel shader.
