1) Are you sympathetic to the cause of the Shader 2.0 community who will lose support in a few short days?

2) Do you believe that players should be able to recall CSMs due to poor representation?

1) Sympathetic : Yes. Can much be done ... not really. Technology moves, and while CCP have been really good about maintaining support for old hardware, there is a time it must be let go.

2) Very much so, but how to do it in a way that can not be 'exploited' would be my major concern.

1. As one of the developers of the current shader architecture (DX team member through DX 9.0) I guess the question I'd ask is how many players this change will affect? A small number I expect and I can tell you the jump in the shader revision provides the developer a lot more capabilities.

2. Definitely

1. No. Upgrade, there no reason why development time should be spent working around old architecture. If you want to play something on your P2, play solitare.
2. No. Largely because what the public sees and what actually happens are typically clouded special thanks to NDAs.

I pretty much agree with Prom there : no and no.

CCP are already doing a lot to delay the graphics upgrade, and make sure people receive plenty of warnings, etc. I'm more wondering why they did not do that SOONER. Remember, CCP has to allocate some development time specifically to those with antique computers. Time the devs can't spend on improving the game.
In other words : buy a new CG, stop crippling my game !

About the CSM, no, and because the public has very little visibility on that.
