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.


Freezing in main menu

To prevent crashes, use r4830 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 (r4830) 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 :

  1. Run Dolphin.exe
  2. Press Config -> Plugins -> Change the graphics to D3D9
  3. Enter the graphics settings
  4. Go to advance and choose EFB copy to RAM
  5. Play the game
  6. Inside the game (at village) press ALT+TAB to bring up the main Dolphin
  7. Change the settings to EFB copy to TEXTURE
  8. Continue the game

In some cases errors may occur when using the ALT+TAB function. In such case play the game in windowed mode. For more details, see this video. One can download r4830 here: 32bit / 64bit

Incorrect Bloom Rendering

Bloom effects are not rendered correctly, refer issue 2068.

Unknown Pointer Address

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:



Only configuration options for the best compatibility where they deviate from defaults are listed.


Config Setting Notes
Scaled EFB Copy On+Cache Prevent crashes if you are using newer builds. Otherwise, use r4830
