For usage instructions of the Software scroll down a bit.

What is 3d Analyzer ?

3d Analyzer is a PC Software which enables us to play high end games on low end PC. Now what is actually 3d Analyzer and what does it do. 3d Analyzer does transform and lightning hardware emulation and helps in running TnL games on PC’s which do not have dedicated graphics card. It can emulate most of the features of 3d games such as pixelshader, bump maps, SW TnL etc.

But a normal user may not understand these technical terms so in laymen language it helps to play high end game son low end PC’s.

How to use 3d Analyzer to Play high end games on low end PC ?

First of all Download 3d Analyzer from the below link:

You will get a Zip file after downloading. Extract the Zip file. Now after extracting the Zip file you will find a file named 3danalyzer-v236.exe, double click on that. The file will ask for installation , choose the directory where you want to install 3d Analyzer and click on install. Now go to the directory where you installed 3d Analyzer and there you will see many file such as : 3DAnalyze.exe, ForceDLL.dll, beta.txt, hook_3DA.dll etc. Double click on the file named 3DAnalyze.exe to run it (do not touch any other file).

Now you will see the window as shown below:

3d Analyzer - how to play high end games on low end pc

Click on SELECT and then browse to the .exe (executable file of the game). For eg. if I install GTA San Andreas then the exe file of the game would be in the directory where I installed the game with the name gtasa.exe / gtasa. (Do not select the shortcut which are on desktop or anywhere else on the PC).

Now when you have selected the .exe file of the game. all the options of 3d Analyzer would now be enabled. Now select the graphic card to which you want to emulate the game.To select Graphic Card : see that names of some graphic cards are given. Now Vendor ID and Device ID is also given below their name. Copy /Write the Vendor ID and the Device ID of the Graphic Card which you want to emulate in the two boxes provided.  Now put a tick on the options which you want to enable and leave the rest of them. Now click on “RUN”.And voila your game will start running.

 I know that most of you may not be knowing which Vendor ID and Device ID to use for which game and which boxes to put a tick on and which boxes to leave as it is. I will be posting the list of games which 3d Analyzer can run and settings of some games such as GTA San Andreas, Cricket etc. so stay tuned to Iocreed.

Here are the settings of 3d Analyzer for GTA San Andreas and some more games: 3D Analyzer Settings for GTA San Andreas and some more Games – Part 1


So this was the second part of the tutorial on How to play high end games on low end PC. Read the first part here : Part – 1 : Play high end games on low end PC.

If you face any problem in following any of the above steps then do comment and let me know. I will help you out. Comments otherwise are also welcome.

  1. I have a pc with pentium4 processor, 760 mb ram with integrated graphics card of 64[intel] mb . I want to assassins creed on my pc ,can u plz tell me that 3d analizer or swiftshader 3.0 can help me to play it. If yes can you give me its settings.

    • Hi Fahad,
      I am on it.. I am writing an article on the settings of 3 D Analyzer settings for some games..It will also contain the game you mentioned…I will publish it on SUnday..So visit Iocreed again on SUnday and you will find settings for many more games…

  2. Hello Aditya,
    Assasin’s Creed requires DX 10 and above but 3d Analyzer can run games upto DX 9.0 so It will obviously not run on P4…
    BTW Thanks for visiting and Commenting on Iocreed…

  3. Hello, sir iam having intel core to duo processor and 2 gb ram so what type of graphic card i will purchase to play all the latest and future games easily. Pls give me nvidia or amd model no.

    • Hi Vicky,
      For Rs. 3000 you can go for Nvidia GeForce GT 610 Synergy Edition 2 GB DDR3 Graphics Card or Asus NVIDIA GT610-SL-2GD3-L 2 GB DDR3 Graphics Card..Since your budget is low so most probably you can go for these two…

      How to choose a graphic card.
      eg. GT610
      Here the number 6 after GT tells that it is a 6th generation card..and the numbers 10 show that it is a card with low performance (cards with 30 are medium perf. and with 60 High performance and for 90 Extremely high end card)..
      while for AMD it goes like this…
      eg. HD 7970:- 7 means 7th generation 970 means extremely high…and if the number is like 750 it means high end , 670 means medium performance and 450 Low end card..
      Now you know what the numbers mean you can choose the card on your own..just go to flipkart or any other online site or maybe any shop near your house and you will find many cards there… Just keep in mind the above points..
      Hoping that this helps.. :)

  4. Thanks for this information Sir. Sir if i will buy Nvidia GeForce GT 610 Graphic card then all the games which will be released in 2013 and 2014 run or not?

  5. As i know that nvidia geforce gt 630 will not support in my system because im havng core 2 duo processor, 2 gb ddr2 ram and 250w power supply unit. So sir pls help as i hav heard that geforce 630 requires more than 300 w power supply.

    • Hello Vicky,
      In that case you can upgrade your Power Supply to 300w, it won’t affect your Motherboard as the motherboard will take it’s normal power consumption..
      And if you get 610 then I doubt that you will be able to play the high end graphic games to be released in 2013-2014..So better upgrade your power supply and get either 630 (650 and 690 will cost too much)..

  6. I have a dell d620 duo core wit webcam,ram 2gig,procesor 1.83ghz total graphics memory 256mb,adpter information chip type intel gma 950….harddrve 100gig,but i cant play games like assasins creed,devil may cry,splinter cell,what cn i possibly do to play games?

  7. I have a computer having (Pentium d 3.4GHz,80 gb hard disk,1gb ram,250 mb graphic card builtin and pc dell Gx620)it can run Gta 4 game

  8. hi sir,
    i bought assassin’s creed 2 and had it installed in my computer.i created a ubisoft account . but the game didn’t load due to lack of graphics card. can the 3D analyzer help me with that?(i tried but i was unable to find .exe file)..pls help me…

    • I can’t tell you exactly if you will be able to run Assassin’s Creed 2 or not but there’s no harm in trying.. and about locating the .exe file. Follow these steps:
      For Windows XP
      1. Open my computer
      2. On the Menu Bar you can see FILE, EDIT etc. Click on Tools >> Folder Options . Now find here “Hide extensions for known file types” and remove the tick mark from it.

      For Windows 8:
      1. Open my computer
      2. On the Menu Bar you can see FILE, COMPUTER and VIEW. Click on View. Now on the right hand side you will see an option “File Extensions “. Put a tick on it.

      Now run 3d Analyzer and click on open and then in the browsing window open the folder where the game is installed and this time you will see the file name with extensions eg. game.exe

      Hoping that this will solve your problem.

        • Hello Bhagya,
          Yes this works on all windows..
          and if it doesn’t the follow these steps:
          1. Right Click on 3d Analyzer and go to properties.
          2. Now go to Compatibility Tab and then put a tick mark on “Run this program in Compatibility mode ” and then choose Windows XP Sp2 from the drop down menu
          3. click Apply and OK
          Now 3d Analyzer will run.
          It should run normally but in case if it doesn’t then you can follow the above steps.

    • Hello Rohit,
      First of all a friendly advice, while commenting if you don’t own any website than leave that field blank instead of filling the website’s name on which you are commenting 😛 (like you have done here)

      And bro 3D analyzer emulates games which require Direct X 9.0 / 8.0 , not above that so any game upto the release of GTA San Andreas is supported by 3d Analyzer but the games released thereafter are not supported,
      Ashwani Kumar Singh

    can i run gta liberty city with 3d analyser

    • Hello Lalith,
      All PC’s have Inbuilt Graphic Card..Follow the steps below and let me know:
      Open Run and type in there: dxdiag
      Now a Window opens up. There’s a Tab saying “Display” in that window, click on that and tell me the values of all the fields there. If your Approx Total Memory is above: 128 MB then you can easily run the game. I have played it on P4 with 64 MB Approx Total Graphic Memory. YOU won’t need 3d Analyzer for that. :)

    • Hello Shwetabh,
      Sorry but you can’t run these games with 3d Analyzer or any such software. And every PC has an inbuilt Graphic Card, though it cannot run those high end games. Open run and type dxdiag and press enter. Now a Window opens up go to the Display Tab and there you will see your Graphic Memory. But if you want to run the above games than better buy a Graphic Card.
      Check out this guide here to choose Graphic Card for you PC: http://www.iocreed.com/how-to-choose-graphics-card-for-your-pc/
