(note: I previously suggested this post for approval in another thread, but it can be better to open a new one, because of different graphic cards)
I used to play with no problem at all until I updated 343.36-1 nvidia drivers. Each new version gave me the problem exposed below. I always had to revert to 343.36.1, and that always solved the problem to me.
With warthunder 1.53, it’s not possible anymore cause FPS drops with 343.36.1 nvidia drivers. 358.09-1 version solved FPS drops, but made my old problem come back again :
- random freeze (usually need to reset computer), only in game, usually in the first game, but not always.
- sound usually working (but it sometimes loop or get choopy)
- image freeze (always)
- PC don’t respond (sometimes I can kill X)
I can’t say if it’s only on some maps… but it doesn’t seem so. it happens on AB and RB. I’m only playing planes.
