I have downloaded Splinter Cell: Chaos Theory, but I am unable to play it. I don't have a graphics card. I managed to play a similar game (Sand of Time) using 3D Analyze 2.34, that game too required a graphics card with pixel shader 2.0.

I tried:

  • Force SW intl
  • Emulate pixel shader caps
  • Skip pixel shader 2.0

VendorID 4098: deviceid: 20040

Please let me know 3D Analyze settings for Chaos Theory

    An excellent question. +1 and favorited. For the love of God someone please answer this qs. I've tried everything possible to run this game. compatibility modes, 3d analyze, swiftshader, tried updating the game, even tried with different no-cd cracks. The dvd is just lying around in my room these days.

The settings that you need to run Splinter Cell: Chaos Theory using 3D Analyser are;

  • Performance -> Force Software Transform and Lighting (TnL),
  • Hardware limits -> Emulate Pixel Shader Capabilities

You will also need to install the v1.05 patch or later in order for the game to run through 3D Analyser.
