8. The "Simulator error (-1000)"

In practice, all simulator errors due to issues related to the display drivers. Listed below are the reasons, which cover more than 95% of the reported errors.

8.1 Intel graphics

Intel video cards are not supported (although some low display resolutions may work). You should try modest game settings and a low screen resolution.

8.2 Intel and nVidia / ATI/AMD/Radeon HD Video Card

Some - mostly laptops - computers may have two graphics cards. In general, the other is an Intel-based motherboard integrated graphics, and the other is so-called improved performance graphics card. Read an article written for the solution here.

8.3 ATI/AMD/Radeon HD Graphics Card

Radeon GPUs have compatibility problems with the OpenGL interface, which is used in Suunnistussimulattori implementation too. All display modes may not work. Suunnistussimulaattori is still looking for a solution to this very irritating problem. There is also Radeon cards that works with Suunnistussimulaattori just as well as the NVIDIA cards. For example AMD Radeon HD 7450M driver version 8.9. Hardware requirements will give information on screen resolutions ATI Radeon HD 4650 card works with.

There is a possible solution to this problem. At least it solved this issue with a Radeon HD 4650 card. Download fix (please read the instructions on download page first) here. NOTE! The fix is included to currently downloadable versions of the game.

9. "loadlibrary failed with error 998: invalid access to memory location"

You have an ATI/AMD graphics card (see 8.3). You can do the following steps:

9.1 Rename file C:\Program Files (x86)\Pulssit\Suunnistussimulaattori\2.0\bin\atioglxx.dll to another name or remove it

9.2 From the game settings (Edit | Settings) set screen resolution to 800x600

9.3 Try to start the game

9.4 If number 9.3 was successful, try to find a suitable resolution for you

10. OpenGL driver version too small (1.x)

See 8.2, system has loaded primary graphics controller, Intel, drivers. Or your graphics controller drivers are just too old.But that is a rare case, more likely you have corrupted drivers. In both cases, please install new graphics drivers.
