Describe your issue:

World of Warships crashes to desktop after a few minutes of being at the port. Event 4101 sent by source "display" is logged in Windows “system” event logs, with message "Display driver amdkmdap stopped responding and has successfully recovered." The game must be closed and restarted.


Steps to repro:

1.       Launch World of Warships.

2.       Log in to your account and you are taken to the port screen.

3.       Click around the tech tree / modules / profile / rotate your ship / hover over some different modules.

4.       Eventually the game will stutter and crash to desktop, and must be restarted.


World of Warships is affected and easy to repro. I haven’t played any battles because I’m afraid the driver will crash and my record will go down from “quitting” matches. I have also seen the crash happen two times during FURmark tests.

The game is set to mostly “High” settings, with some settings turned lower. It is a little bit difficult to grab a screenshot due to the fact that the game crashes.

Let me know if you need any additional information or need me to try anything!
