Error message is: PIXEL SHADER UNAVAILABLE when trying to run game Pet Vet 2 I undated my drivers, but same message appears. Is there a program, software I can download


Answers :

Unfortunately, it sounds like you will need a new graphics card to run that game. Pixel shaders are built into the graphic card hardware and there is no way to download or install them. According to the games system requirements you need a 100% compatible Directx 9.0C card. If you post the make and model of your computer(or motherboard) I could recommend a card for you.
