Top Spin PC Problem

Sorry if this has been solved already. I have recently bought Top Spin on PC, but after installation its stopping me playing, citing that i need "Vertex or Pixel Shaders" to run.

I have no idea what either of these are, so can a computer-minded individual tell me what i can do?

Your video card needs to have that feature on it to run. If your card doesn't have it then try to disable the Vertex and Pixel shading and play without it. If that doesn't work then you will need to get another video card to play it.

There should be video options within the options of the Topspin game.

Yes that is a problem with top spin on pc it needs at least a geeforce 3 to run and i dont think u can disable the pixel shaders either unfortunatlely its a new graphics card needed ,there are some good buys around such as a Geeforce 5700 or such which is reasonably priced

But you have to open up your computer to change the memory card and it's just long. Which is why I convinced my parents to buy my brother and Xbox for Xmas and I bought him (but really for me) Topspin
