What is oldblivion?
Oldblivion is a piece of software which allows graphics cards which are pre DirectX9 to run Elder Scrolls: Oblivion from Bethesda. This means that Oblivion can run on cards such as Geforce 3, Geforce 4, Radeon 9200 and so on. Oldblivion is still in an early development phase but it's fairly stable, however there still are a few bugs and kinks to work out.

How does oldblivion work?
Oldblivion attaches to Oblivion and applies certain patches to it. Some of these patches are for making sure that Oblivion doesn't crash when run on hardware which lacks certain new functionality. It also changes the shaders used by Oblivion from pixel shader 2.0 and vertex shader 2.0 into pixel shader 1.1 and vertex shader 1.1.

Supported cards
If you have a card which works well with Oldblivion but is not listed here, please let us know.

- Geforce 4 series
- Geforce FX 5200 series

that is very impressive. It looks like some folks will be able to play and hold off their new PC purchase/upgrade a bit longer
