Closed Shader model 3 support? Tags: Graphics Cards Games Graphics Last response: March 3, 2013 10:50 AM in Graphics & Displays Share Noobpc February 18, 2013 2:36:22 AM I am trying to install a game called Primal Carnage through steam, but everytime i get in the process of it i get the error message saying that I dont have "shader model 3". I am not sure what i need. I have tried using a program called 3danalyzer to emulate a new graphics card but that was a failure. How do i get this game to work for me? I am running windows xp pro SP3 2002 Intel(R) Pentium(R) 4 CPU 2.53 GHz 2.52 GHz, 1.5GB RAM What other information do you guys need? Trying to spend as little money as possible.
