Because i’ve been getting alot of queries came into my site from search engine because there’s someone trying to find the Pixel Shader Emulator, i decided to post this .. well actually i’ve tried this freeware pixel shader emulator / hardware tnl (transform and lightning) in the past while im still using my old Nvidia GeForce 2MX to try out different 3DMark 01 test especially those involving pixel shader test, because GeForce 2 MX doesnt support pixel shader so the only way to do it is by using a freeware program called 3D Analyze (dunno if this still works right now, but it doesnt hurt to try, right ?)
What this program does is by emulating Hardware Transform and Lightning using your Processor power instead of using the Graphic Card power, and that means if you’re not using a powerfull processor then this program is not going to works as it should for you. For example what this program can do is, make your card looks as it’s already have pixel shader built in, fake your Graphic Card Identificatio (for example you’re using Nvidia Geforce, you can fake it so it’ll be detected as ATI .. although not all games can be fooled by this for example Dynasty Warriors 4 Extreme on PC because i’ve already tested this on my friends computer that’s using GeForce 4MX), and many more … so if you dont own a pixel shader capable card, or you just want to try out someting new .. you can use this program .. but you’ll need to remember that all the pixel shader emulation, and such stuff will be done from your Processor
By the way here’s information about this program quoted from their website :
3D-Analyze is a tool for transform and lightning hardware emulation. So it is very useful for running TnL games on video cards that have not on board dedicated circuits for TnL calculations (like all Voodoo, Kyro, some Radeon and older). It uses power of central processing unit to do emulation.
Hopefully this information can be usefull for you ;)
