Error when playing the game FarmingSimulator 2008

Asked By 0 points N/A Posted on -


I have installed the game FarmingSimulator 2008 but when I have tried playing it, I got this error message, see below. 

I have searched the web and was directed to installing the video driver. 

However, I am not that techie so I wouldn’t know which product type to choose. 

Can anyone from the experts here guide me? 

Hope to get a quick and step by step response.



Error: Could not init 3D system.

Shader Model 2.0 is required.

Please install the latest video drivers.

Error when playing the game FarmingSimulator 2008


You have an incompatible hardware to support the game.

The game encountered a problem while initializing the 3D renderer.

Your video card doesn’t support Shader Model 2.0 which is required by the game.

The game cannot start because it can’t initialize the 3D system due to a missing hardware component.

Here are the minimum specifications for Farmer-Simulator 2008:

  • Intel Pentium 2 GHz or any equivalent AMD processor
  • NVIDIA GeForce 6800 Series or ATI Radeon X850
  • 1 GB RAM
  • Soundcard
  • 1 GB available hard drive space

Check your computer’s hardware specification on what parts that needs to be replaced to upgrade the system and for the game to work. Especially the video card where the error occurred, this is the part that really needs replacing.
