Default Deus Ex 2: Invisible War wo/ pixel shader

Is there anyway to run Deus Ex 2 without using pixels shaders since my geforce 4 mx doesn't support it?

When the game detects no hardware support for a feature, it should disable it automatically.

sorry heavy, the game needs a ps 2.0 card to be able to run. The game uses pixel shader 2.0, therefore it needs a card that supports it.

Actually, It requires PS 1.1. But maybe my GeForce 3 has evolved somehow to support PS 2.0.

Heavyd:
You could try running the game with 3D Analyze but if it "works" there will be some major graphical bugs.

You can use 3d Analise to emulate pixel shaders, allowing the game to run, but it will run very slow and look bad. But hey, I played through DX1 at 4 FPS, so if you're dedicated to getting it to work you have an option.
