Ever since 8.1, the game will randomly freeze, but ONLY in the garage. These freezes come in two flavours. Either a hard lock of the entire machine, nothing doing except hold the power down for 4 seconds, or it dumps the desktop with an nVidia kernel error in the event log.
I'm running the latest drivers from nVidia, re-installed WOT, still random freezes. Re-isntall the drivers, back dated the drivers, tried really old drivers, back to new drivers, even re-installed my OS.
Computer is fairly new, no problems in 7.5 or 8.0, only 8.1.
Only reliable solution so far is to switch back to the old rendering engine, which kinda sucks since it can't take advantage of the card.
So to re-iterate: ONLY in the garage, and only with the new Rendering engine after 8.1 (New engine in 8.0 was fine) the game will randomly lock up. sometimes it's fine for an hour or two, sometimes after 30 seconds of being in the game.
It doesn't seem to matter what I'm doing in the garage, but it's usually during a mouse over of a button, or when the screen would fade to black or see through.
I'm happy to upload any logs that could help shed light on this or run any sort of official debug software WG wants me to, I just want to have the nice rendering engine stable again!
I've submitted an official ticket for this.
