pixel shaders v1.1

I want to install Lego Star Wars onto a machine and it comes up with an error message saying that it cant play the game due to not having Pixel Shaders v.1.1 in it. Can anyone tell me whether the pixel shaders come with Direct X? I have installed DirectX 9 in my computer. Or can anyone tell me whether the Pixel Shaders come with the video card itself? Thanks.

It actually comes with both. The Pixel shader is a hardware acceleration feature and has to be supported by your graphics card. Also you will have to get the latest drivers and DirectX runtime too as well.

I think that yes it should be. Did you get updated drivers from the manufacturers website and the directx runtime from microsoft website as well?

I think that the Nvidia card that you are having might not be supporting pixel shader support. You may need to get a more modern video card or so.

You should know that Pixel Shader is a hardware component inside the video card. Incase you have an older integrated video card such as the Intel 915, 935 or VIA S3 then your hardware is not capable of playing this game.
