It's really aggravating how the shields doesn't render right though I can run Halo with Open Sauce with full graphic enhancement well but It still can't render the energy shields well and this the example of the energy shields not rendering well. My graphics is Intel HD Graphics 4000 and I also tried to make halo support it like editing halo's config and all that and the thing is that Halo 2 Vista and Halo Online can render plasma right with my graphics card but Halo CE can't and I'm really hoping anyone could help me out with this, It's one of my reasons why I don't finish my projects, seeing those broken rendered plasma makes me depressed and prevents me from continuing.

The thing is that it can run plasma bitmaps properly in Halo 2 and Halo Online but not in CE unless they were using different plasma bitmaps in those games. Is there any program that can force my GPU to run those or editing in the config or video card settings to make it work?

Halo Combat Evolved is hardcoded to not support Pixel Shaders 2.0 on Intel graphics. No amount of config.txt editing or video settings will change this.

If you're on a desktop PC and your desktop has a PCIe x16 slot, you could try installing a cheap used NVIDIA or AMD/ATI GPU. That might fix your issue.

Also, it doesn't matter if newer games work fine or not, because Halo Combat Evolved neither cares about your feelings nor your newer games.

I get shield shaders on Intel Hd 4000 graphics, whatever your problem is, doesn't sound like it's the card.

Do you additional installs for the graphics that made them render well for you? Let me know and also the screenshot is broken I'm going to repost it

How they render.

How I want them to render. (Old 2014 picture as example)

Try adding -use21 to your shortcut's target.

-use21 isn't a valid argument. Pixel Shader version 2.1 does not exist. These are the valid arguments:

-use2a
-use20
-use14
-use11
-use00
-useff

Also, even -use2a and -use20 will not do anything on Intel GPUs. Halo will consider it invalid for Intel graphics and use 1.4 instead.

You guys are just tards acting like you know everything about the game, I manage to make it won by my own and no 3rd party app I just used the chicago shader and make it have a layer of the plasma shader and ta da the plasma renders properly. Dumb tards basing their information on what have been already discovered before know your roles normies and wanna be's.
