I installed Paradise Garden, started the program and an error pops up and then causes a crash after clicking OK.
The detail of the error message is: (X) Failed to initialized player
Details: DirectX9 GPU (Shader Model 2.0) is required. Your GPU (NVIDIA GeForce2 MX/MX 400) only supports Shader Model 0.0
I have a Gateway Profile 4 with: Windows XP SP3 Pentium 4 CPU 2.66GHz 2.00 GB of RAM DirectX 9.0c
I have download and installed the lastest video driver for this card from NVIDIA.
After researching, I have found that the Shader Model is hardware on the video card, which is not mention on your software package. My question is, since the video card is not upgradable, can this software be forced to use Shader Model 0.0 and how? If not then I wouldn't be very happy but to possible wait for years to get a new PC and hope that this game will work with that OS.

With these two options checked: * emulate HW TnL caps * emulate pixel shader caps
I am now able to run the game but mostly with a pink screen. The game starts with music and a solid pink screen. Then the lobby comes up with pink boxes for any clickable items.
I have tried with other options on the 3D-Analyze and most with no effect and some options will cause the game to crash.
One option "forced wireframe mode" did cause the startup screen to be black and then fades into a blueish gray screen with a diagonal pink line through it. When the lobby comes up the clickable items are a pink outlined box with a diagonal line though them. Some of the boxes when hovered over the text area will show these smaller boxes which I think is supposed to be text. When the game appears instead of pictures only the outlined pink boxes show, but the game seems to run normally, and knowing the location of where the buttons are to run the slot machine.
At least there is some progress but still not working as expected. Any more help on this is appreciated.
As for the PC, it is an all-in-one desktop computer system, somewhat similar to the iMac.
