I just bought farming simulator 09 and i have the intel g33/g31 express chipset family video card i was wondering i keep getting the message that i need a shader model 2.0 in order to play the game when my computer meets all other requirments?
Is it a laptop?
Yes, any integrated gpu are bad for gaming. If you have a laptop then you can't do anything. If you have PC, get a dedicated graphic card, any graphic cards today are supported shader model 2.0.
"Important Note: This product requires the Shader Model 2 which is a feature of your Graphics Card. Please make sure that yours is equal to or higher than the cards mentioned in the System requirements below.

This is taken from the web page of that game. Your computer does not meet the requirements.
