Question about ValuSoft 18 Wheels of Steel: American Long Haul for Windows

2 Answers

From what I'm seeing..all these freeze ups and Prism 3d engine graphics errors seem to be on an HP computer..mostly desktops.. In 18 WOS ALH I suffer this problem mainly when monitoring the DRIVER statuses.. In LOG area I review the DRIVER's progress one by one..and most of the time.. the game crashes my PC and I got to restart the PC and my progress is lost. Today I got that PRISM 3D engine stop and had to restart my pc. I have windows VISTA 64bit on my HP desktop Duo Quad CoreI PC can't seem to get any answers to my problems with VALUSOFT so I hope you can be able to help me. Thanks. JIM

I had the same problem and what I had to do is get a laptop with a nvidia video card. If you have a desktop then all you have to do is go out and buy a new video card and install it and use the new one from now on.

My Wheels of Steel game freezes and I get a Prism 3D error that says the game must close. Do I need more 3d memory for my computer


not 3d memory, more RAM , go into your local computer store and ask them about gaming on computers, have your full computer specs to hand and you could probably get an upgrade.

I can't speak to this specific conflict, but generally this type of behavior is caused by buggy software or outdated drivers
The latter can be corrected by updating your hardware drivers. Begin by making sure you have applied all critical security & optional hardware updates available for your system at windows update. Then, you may update your bios, graphics and network adapters, etc. by following the excellent instructions outlined in this tutorial: How to Update Windows Drivers XP. Finally, make sure your system meets the suggested minimun requirements for running that game. You might need to upgrade ram, for example.

You can also take a look at the Application Logs in Event Viewer, to see specifically what error is causing the freeze. (Start>Control Panel>Administrative Tools>Event Viewer). Look for warnings or Errors reported at the time of the application failure. If you right click on the Event ID # and choose properties, you will open an Information window that provides the option to get more information in Help & Support about the particular event in question, and oftentimes this will allow you to take steps to remedy the situation.
That will give you a few opportunities to troubleshoot the cause.
I hope one or the other will provide a solution.

If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread.

check your virtual memory. it may not be allocating enough space on your hard drive to properly run. also there's a screen for software compatibility. programs that used to run flawlessly on win 98 may not run on windows xp or vista.
