Does your computer meet the minimum requirements specified on the side of the game box?

Something else may be causing your computer to go slow.
When the game is running slow start up Task Manager.
You can start this by clicking Ctrl Alt Del then clicking on the task manager button.

You are looking for the bottle neck that is causing your system to run slow.
Is the CPU running at or near 100%
Is the Physical Memory Available Counter down below 10,000kb
Is the Hard Disk light constantly flashing

Let me know if you are seeing one or more of these symptoms and may be able to give you some advice on what you can do about it.

    I have just checked out the support page for that game.

    Looks like a nice game too by the way :)



    http://www.americanlonghaul.com/support....



    It looks like it relies heavily on the graphics card and drivers being correct.



    You have paid for this product so the people that wrote the game should provide support to you and help you get it working. There is a knowledge base article and Technical Support Links on the above page also.



    I'm not sure how old your Notebook is but I would look closely at the video card requirements and make sure your machine meets them.

18 wheels of steel american long haul will not run on my win7 computer, so I want a solution. Plus I am 10 years old.


Hello jad_1234, Try to run your the game using Windows XP compatability mode in Win7. To change the mode to XP do the following:
  • Right click the game icon
  • Select Properties
  • Select the compatibility tab
  • Check the "Run this program in compatibility mode" box
  • From the drop down menu select Windows XP
  • Click Apply then Ok
  • Try running the program again.
The compatibility mode has helped me play several games in the past. Post a reply with any issues or please rate this solution if you found it helpful. Thanks, Edward
