Hi All,
My WOT game is crashing when I try to launch the game from the "Play" button of the WOT Launcher. I am aware that if this would have been a systematic bug, the forum would have been bombarded with complains, but since I am the 1st one reporting, I have to dig into my Windows system to identify wtf is the issue.
My system is a Dell XPS L501X (i5 M460 2.53GHz, 8GB Ram, 500GB hdd, Intel Video HD + NVidia GeForce GT 420M), and the game is set to use the NVidia card from NVidia Application Selector. The "Exception Code" shows me that this is a fatal memory access violation.

I have installed the game from its full install kit but also from its internet installer, but I have the same error. I will try to update the video driver of my NVidia card or to use the Intel HD instead, but this will make the gaming very very slow.

In Windows Application log, the Error appears as:

Faulting application name: worldoftanks.exe, version:, time stamp: 0x505b52ff
Faulting module name: unknown, version:, time stamp: 0x00000000

I have switched to "Intel Video HD" as prefered graphics processor and after that the game started succesfully. This is very unpleasant for me, because of the poor 3D performance of this card compared to the NVidia card.
I will try to update the NVidia graphic driver version, probably there is the issue. My NVidia graphic driver version is: 266.39

I have succesfully upgraded the NVidia driver on my system and now the game application is runing fine.
I have also battled 3 times to "validate" that the application works stable.

Now my driver version is 306.23. The initial version was 266.39.

The NVidia driver I had until now was the original one from the Dell support site for my laptop system (Dell XPS L501X) and it was almost one and a half years old. It doesn't include an automathic update functionality, and personally I haven't update it manually because my laptop system is a "company" own and not a "private".
Now, desperated to play the game, I manually updated my NVidia video drivers with the official drivers from the NVidia support. I noticed that the NVidia official driver has an automathic update feature, so I will be "up-to-date" from now on.

P.S. I hope my company's IT department will "forgive" me for upgrading my video drivers without their "permision and blessing", I did it with my best intentions for a better goal ... to play the game!

I discovered that if I deny WoT to handle edge-smoothening and instead set my graphicscard( AMD Radeon HD 6800 Series) manually to morphologic filtering x8 I can suddenly start the game without any problem.
No other parameter seem to matter. :Smile_great:
