"Video driver hung and was restarted" every time after logging in

Since the Sons of Attila update I keep getting this message every time I log in and sometimes it even restarts my entire PC, my drivers are up to date. Anyone else with this issue?

there are certainly other players with the same issue (as there ALWAYS are ^^) - not me though and considering there are only a few (kinda) similar reports i would say it’s safe to assume that the (vast) majority of players do not have this problem…

some things you could try / have a look into:

  • try an older videocard driver to see if the issue persists
  • make sure nothing is overclocked on your system
  • disable unnecessary background tools / apps / services
  • disable any mods in WT (if you got any)

I tried all of these and no dice, rolled back my drivers, even tried 2 different graphics cards and still getting the driver hang error. Might just take a break until the next major update and see if it gets fixed.

I have this problem when there is a whole bunch of smoke, it lowers my textures, and when i tried playing on ulq, it just straight up crashed my game, i run a decent setup, rtx 4070, 64 gigs of ram and a 13th gen i7. All my stuff is up to date. other games crash too sometimes, but its only after playing warthunder. its something to do with DirectX crashing.
