Game freezes on win 8.1 machine

Postby psolow » Wed 4 Jun 2014 19:20

The game freezes mid-game. Sometimes the whole game freezes (sound repeats, mouse freez etc.), Sometimes it's just the picture, and i can hear that I can interact with the game behind the picture.
I'm on a brand new machine w/ new install and all drivers are up to date. I have tried to change settings, but to no avail.

cant find a crash dump

Your laptop computer has two graphics controllers: INTEL HD and NVIDIA GEFORCE.

Please select the NVIDIA GEFORCE graphics controller to play Wargame Red Dragon:

1. Right click on the background of the Windows Desktop and click NVIDIA Control Panel.
2. Click Manage 3D settings under 3D Settings in 'Select a Task...'.
3. Click the tab Program Settings under 'I would like to use the following 3D settings:'.
4. Click the button Add under '1. Select a program to customize:'.
5. Open the folder Wargame Red Dragon.
6. By default the path is Local Disk (C:), folder Program Files or Program Files (x86), Steam, SteamApps and Common.
7. Select the application WarGame3 (or WarGame3.exe) and click the button Open then click the button Apply.
8. Select 'High-performance NVIDIA processor' under '2. Select the preferred graphics processor for this program:' and click the button Apply.
9. Close the NVIDIA Control Panel and run the game.

Or he should just turn off intergrated graphics in bios.

Thanks for the quick reply.
You say my drivers are not up to date. Can you be more specific. My windows update tells me that i'm up to date. I have updated to the latest divX and Nvidia tells me to update through Lenovo.
Levono system check tells me that my drivers are up to date.

Based on what FoucsSupport said :

There are 2 graphic drivers installed on your computer : INTEL HD which is the driver for the graphical unit on the motherboard and NVIDIA's drivers for your graphic card. Your computer doesn't know which driver use for the game it seems.

Do as FocusTechSupport wrote and tell if things are better.

Hi,

Wich driver do you use? I know that since the last nvidia driver (337.88), some games (A3, WRD...) randomly freeze (only screen). My advice will be to downgrad your pilot to the previous version, if you hadn't trouble with it, until the next nvidia patch.

Sadly no luck. I set up wargame in NVIDIA controle pannel, but it did not help.
I can play for a while, but suddenly the screen freezes. There seems to be no real pattern to the problem.

Any other suggestions?
