Metal Drift is a futuristic arena combat game in drift-tanks. It is team-based with online multiplayer. You can level up your player and your weapons over time to unlock more weapons and upgrades for your tank. Metal Drift features 56 different tank configurations with various weapon and upgrade selections to choose from. In addition, the drift-tanks have a unique energy system that allows the pilot to direct acquired energy into a speed boost or to power up weapons for extra damage. The game also features 5 different arenas, each with their own racing lines and boost tunnels.

I decided to play around with some joystick emulators and have made a pretty good 360 controller setup in Metal Drift.

I get an error:

Video device does not support hardware vertex shaders - cannot run game
I used to be able to play this on an older computer, but I've since upgraded it and I'm now getting this error. For some reason, programs have been having a hard time knowing my system specs/checking what graphics card I have properly, and I believe Metal Drift also isn't detecting my video device properly.

Is there any way to force launch? If not, could a way be made?

I have this game on Steam. It certainly needs more people playing. With real people playing, the game is very fun and I find myself going on for several hours longer than I planned. A lot of people need to buy this game. The more people it has, the funner it is.

Wasn't this on some "to be released" slot of "Instant Action" before it went down?

Yes it was. We were supposed to be a launch title for Instant Action.

hmm, if you're going to continue those tournament/grudge match videos i think you should implement some sort of spectator role.

1. you could get hit instead of the opponent, making it unfair
2. the two players now can't move around freely as there is always a camera car somewhere
3. it's annoying to watch as you have to back out to avoid the points i made because they started battling.

if you had some spectator role with a non-collision free camera, and options for a battlefield overview from the two team's sides and a top view, and maybe a follow option to track individual players, it would greatly enhance the quality of the videos. (and that means more people will make videos too, which is good for advertising).
