Why is there 2 TC3? whats the TC3 Test?
You would be best off to keep all your questions to one thread.
TC3 is the test city, TC3-test is only to test if your computer can handle the new graphics updates. If you see a colored worm on the black maxis screen when you login your fine, you might get a message that says you need DX9 or you might get one that says your card doesnt support pixel shader 2.0.
Oh and welcome back.
Oooooh I just tried this and got the message that en error occured whilst trying to load pixel shader 2.0.
Does that mean I need a new graphics card or was it just an error??
I think that means your card doesnt support Pixel Shader 2.0 and you will need to upgrade. There is a list here of Graphics Cards that have been shown to work so far.
It is not an error, but it may not mean you need to buy a new card, either....yet.
First make sure you have the latest upgrades to your video/graphics card. Then download the latest DirectX version....or at least DirectX 9.
Here is Uri's original post in the Blog with full explanation and instructions on how to test the new graphics.
And here is the sticky thread in the Tech forum, which is where you should direct future questions and discussion on your graphics card.
Locking this thread now.
