    I managed to build and deploy the Demos (see below how) for my I8910, but the shaders won’t compile when running the demos. For example, when running the skybox demo I get:

    “Vertex Shader compile: error in file ‘effects.pfx’: Failed to compile shader: Compile Failed. Error o:33:43 invalid nu…”

    Any ideas? Google turns up very little. Maybe the .pfx file is not really included at all?

    System info:

       Samsung I8910 version: I8910XXIE4 dated (18.05.2009)

       S60 5.0 SDK v1.0

       Power VR SDK version:

    And for those wondering why the SDK don’t work out of the box, here is a small howto:

    Getting the SDK running with an I8910:

    1 – install S60 v5.0

    2 – install the PowerVR SDK (change path to a short one!)

    3 – install the missing .lib files found in this .zip in your EPOCROOT


    Hi Espenr,

    This is a bug that has been identified on the S60 platforms and it is related to the language you have selected on your platform: Anything different than English will cause the shaders compilation to fail. I believe this problem will be solved in a future firmware release but, for the moment, to workaround this issue, please set the phone language to English.

    Best regards.
