    When I try and run Hunting Unlimited 2008 it pops up a "sys_no_graphics" message then immediately after clicking ok another window pops up saying "Prism3d Engine has stopped working"...
    I'm trying to run this game on a Toshiba Satellite laptop, Pentium DualCore 1.6gz, 1.5gb RAM, and a ATI Radeon XPRESS 200M series video built into it.

  • phoofaphant Jan 17, 2009

    I don't know why. I installed "18 Wheels of Steel: American Long Haul", and before that, I was playing "18 Wheels of Steel: Across America". Across America was working fine, but when I installed ALH, it all stopped.

I had the same problem with my trucking game "18 wheels Haulin". It stopped many times suddently when game playing. When I installed the 18 wheels American Long Haul, I played very safely at the first time. I saved the first game for it to have the files in My Document and then I coppied some truck mod and pasted in the mod file of American Long Haul. Thank God the American Long Haul started the same problem like Haulin' (Prism 3D engine stopped working) many many times. So I removed the truck mod immediately! After doing so, that problem never never happens again!. Guys, if any of you are having some truck mod and in this problem, just sacrifice your truck mod to play your regular game well. I tested for several times- when I had the truck mod in the mod file, that bad problem occured right away 2 or 3 times in an hour; when I removed it, I never saw it happen again!

I read this from the Microsoft website, someone asked the same question regarding a differnt game. Microsoft said to check under the games manufacturer for any updates, if no updates available then..
"If there are no update patches and if the program was working in any of the previous operating systems, I would suggest you to install the program in compatibility mode.

1. Right click on setup icon of the program
2.Click on properties
3.Now click on compatibility TAB
4.Under compatibility section, put a check mark on "Run this program in compatibility mode for:"
5.In the drop down box select windows Vista
6.Under privilege level check mark "Run this programs as an administrator"7.Click on "Apply"
8.Click on "OK" "

This is a very common problem with 18wos try changing your game resolution to match your normal display settings. If that does not work try re-installing the game.

How can i fix a prism3d error I am trying to play 18 wheels steel hauler it played before but now i keep getting prism3d error and it won't open.It starts opening but stops before complete.

This error occurs if the program cannot recognize a 3D-capable graphics card in the computer. Make sure you have one installed. If you do, then getting the newest drivers from the graphic card manufacturer's web site would be the next step.

I want to play hunting unlimited 4 but then it says my prism3d has stopped working instantly,

Hi, What it your operating system? prism3d is part of your video card. updating the drivers would likely to solve the issue but if in case your using a x64 bit OS, you need to configure the compatibility option for the program.
