''Monster Hunter Tri'' cannot be played online since April 30, 2013, because Capcom shut down the ''Monster Hunter Tri'' servers.

{{Problems|{{#vardefineecho:problems|
To prevent crashes, use {{revision|4830}} or enable EFB Scaled Copy and disable blooming before entering in game (Config => Graphics => D3D9 => Enable Hotkeys, after one can use 7 to enable/disable blooming)
 
 
 
===Black Player Textures===
 
Player skin textures go black once exiting the village (armor displays just fine). Fix this by using a blend build of Dolphin ({{revision|4830}}) to disable blooming before leaving the village. Remember to Enable Hotkeys (Config => Graphics => D3D9 => Enable Hotkeys). Then one can use 7 to enable/disable blooming.
 
 
 
Another way to eliminate this problem is to change '''EFB copy''' settings during the game. The steps are :
 
#Run Dolphin.exe
 
#Press Config -> Plugins -> Change the graphics to D3D9
 
#Enter the graphics settings
 
#Go to advance and choose '''EFB copy to RAM'''
 
#Play the game
 
#Inside the game (at village) press '''ALT+TAB''' to bring up the main Dolphin
 
#Change the settings to '''EFB copy to TEXTURE'''
 
#Continue the game
 
 
 
In some cases errors may occur when using the ALT+TAB function. In such case play the game in windowed mode.

===Incorrect Bloom Rendering===
+
=== <s>Custom Colors</s> ===
Bloom effects are not rendered correctly, refer {{issue|2068}}.
+
By default, '''Skip EFB CPU Access''' is enabled for this game. Without it, the character creation menus run extremely slow even on the most powerful systems. But, without EFB CPU Access the custom color selector during character creation does not work. If you wish to use the custom color selector, uncheck '''Skip EFB CPU Access''', use the selector, and then recheck it to resume character creation. See {{issue|6911}}.
 +
*"Skip EFB CPU Access" is not needed for regular gameplay. But it causes no issues other than the custom color selector and greatly improves the character creation menus - hence it's being on by default.
 +
"Skip EFB CPU Access" can be disabled since {{revision|5.0-9735}} and {{revision|5.0-9638}} as the slowdown has been fixed.
 +
'''Skip EFB CPU Access''' isn't enabled by default by default since {{revision|5.0-11153}}.  
  
===Unknown Pointer Address===
+
=== <s>Blown Out Bloom</s> ===
Exiting town will sometimes result in an "Unknown pointer address prefix 30, report this to the devs: 0x30380000 Continue?" error. This can be addressed by using the following patches, refer {{issue|3324}}:
+
The game uses EFB Access to CPU in order to do its bloom effects. Because it is so slow for us to enable that for this case, the bloom will look blown out by default. Unchecking '''Skip EFB Access to CPU''' will fix the bloom, but, make the game unplayably slow even on the strongest of computers. The slowdown has been fixed in {{revision|5.0-9735}} and {{revision|5.0-9638}} and '''Skip EFB CPU Access''' isn't enabled by default by default since {{revision|5.0-11153}}.

Monster Hunter Tri, known in Japan as Monster Hunter 3, is the third console installment in the Monster Hunter franchise, developed by Capcom and released for the Wii in Japan on August 1, 2009. Monster Hunter Tri was released on April 20 2010 in North America, Europe, and Australia.

Emulation Information

Online Play

Monster Hunter Tri cannot be played online since April 30, 2013, because Capcom shut down the Monster Hunter Tri servers.

Problems

Custom Colors

By default, Skip EFB CPU Access is enabled for this game. Without it, the character creation menus run extremely slow even on the most powerful systems. But, without EFB CPU Access the custom color selector during character creation does not work. If you wish to use the custom color selector, uncheck Skip EFB CPU Access, use the selector, and then recheck it to resume character creation. See issue 6911.

  • "Skip EFB CPU Access" is not needed for regular gameplay. But it causes no issues other than the custom color selector and greatly improves the character creation menus - hence it's being on by default.

"Skip EFB CPU Access" can be disabled since 5.0-9735 and 5.0-9638 as the slowdown has been fixed. Skip EFB CPU Access isn't enabled by default by default since 5.0-11153.

Blown Out Bloom

The game uses EFB Access to CPU in order to do its bloom effects. Because it is so slow for us to enable that for this case, the bloom will look blown out by default. Unchecking Skip EFB Access to CPU will fix the bloom, but, make the game unplayably slow even on the strongest of computers. The slowdown has been fixed in 5.0-9735 and 5.0-9638 and Skip EFB CPU Access isn't enabled by default by default since 5.0-11153.

This title does not need non-default settings to run properly.
