  • I have a problem with my server not connecting or dropping during gameplays. I get almost same error messages shown in another thread (Client stays stuck on "Waiting for steam verification" on fresh install - 7 Days to Die - Nitrado.net Prepaid Gameserver Community-Support) but my Shader Unsupported is about other items.

    I restarted, re-installed, and clean-installed after uninstalling the game. However, the problem persists. I have tried to get a solution by opening a ticket but was not successful. I read some people who were getting the same error on their own self-built servers fixed the problem by updating/installing Microsoft Visual something on their machines. Does anyone know how to fix it? I don't think I'll be able to install anything outside of the 7DTD folder as a renter.


    Server Dashboard "Log" gives me the following messages.

  • I found in 7daystodie.com forum that someone solved the similar problem by re-installing or updating "Microsoft Visual C Redistributables 2022".

    [Dedicated Server] - Sever not fully runnning up... ERROR: Shader Sprites/Default shader is not supported on this GPU - General Support - 7 Days to Die

    However, this solution seems to be for A19. I wonder if A20 shares the same source of such a problem.


    Hope to find a solution soon. I've been playing on someone else's server since I subscribed to Nitrado. lol.

  • Hello i have the Same Problem #### Shader Legacy Shaders/Particles/Additive shader is not supported on this GPU (none of subshaders/fallbacks are suitable) ####
