This is a list of computer games that require DirectX 7 fixed function transform and lighting support to run. Games that only have transform and lighting as an optional feature are not listed here.
An example would be Age of Empires 3 but not Sacrifice. Users of TNT2 cards cannot run Age of Empires 3 but can run Sacrifice.
Software Transformation and Lighting
Graphics chipsets that support software transformation and lighting. Here, the CPU does both the work of the processor
and video card
. Games usually run with acceptable performance.
Intel's chipsets except for the 965 chipset have software transformation and lighting support.
They are as follows:
The Intel GMA series support software transformation and lighting as well as pixel shader 2.0, albeit at a software level. So games that strictly require hardware transformation and lighting may not work (unless run with 3D Analyzer).
