Winter Sports 3: The Great Tournament (aka Winter Sports 2010: The Great Tournament) brings home the Olympic spirit by delivering the thrill of competition on a true worldwide stage. Compete in eight of the most popular winter sports events: snowboardcross, alpine skiing, free ride skiing, short track speedskating, ski jump, biathalon, figure skating, and bobsled. Play a Campaign, Quick Cup, Free Cup, Career, or vie with friends in four-person split-screen and online multiplayer. Play against anyone, anywhere; rise to the top of the global leaderboard, and become a true world champion. You'll feel like you're right on the snow and ice with high-impact graphics, real-life physics, and an up-close presentation style designed to deliver maximum impact.


Downhill Skiing Textures

When playing the Downhill Skiing event textures seem to load from inappropriate locations, showing mountain textures on the course, and course textures on the mountains. These seem to pop back and forth arbitrarily while progressing through the course.

Revision OS CPU GPU Result Tester
5.0-15839 Windows 10 Intel Core i7-6700K @ 4.2 GHz NVIDIA GeForce GTX 970 Title starts up and plays without issue. Kolano
5.0-15993 Windows 10 Intel Core i5-2300 @ 2.8 GHz AMD Radeon HD 6770 Intro/Menu. Direct3D 11, 3xIR, 1xAF, 1x MSAA. Past the screen with the warning about wearing a tightened wrist strap, the screen always turns black and an empty Warning dialog box appears. At this point, I cannot exit Dolphin normally, through the Task Manager, or otherwise without restarting my computer. I didn't test at native resolution (1xIR) because at this point I was tired of restarting, though I imagine that wouldn't make a difference. This is decade-old hardware and another user has marked it playable, though. SpectraNocturne
