Can anyone suggest a good graphics card emulator software that can emulate Pixel Shader 2.0? I tried 3DANALYZE, but it could not emulate Pixel Shader 2.0 properly. I need it to run some games.

We're going WAY back here. I pulled my shader 2 limited X800XT out over a yr and a half ago, and even the shader 3 capable one I replaced it with is very outdated and not driver supported anymore.

Man, shader 2.0? That is old news. I remember I had to use 3d analyze once to get my onboard chipset to run Lego Starwars.

Sounds like its time for a upgrade if your card can't even support SM2.

Definitely, even my X1300 Pro supports 3.0.

It definitely is. SM3 came out with DirectX 9c and SM2 with 9b, so a card without SM3 will struggle to play new (and I use this in the loosest possible way) games.

Erm...well...the 945G has the GMA 950 chip, which supports Pixel Shader 2. Sure, it's not exactly powerful but at the same time you need to remember that emulating things puts one hell of a load onto your CPU so I'd question whether gaming with an emulator (if there is such a thing) would actually be better than putting up with the 'performance' of a GMA 950.
