Hello tankers,

I encountered a new problem yesterday and wanted to leave a trace of what helped me to solve it, in case anyone else had this problem too. I haven't used Discord for few months until yesterday. The application updated and was ready to go so I started playing WoT with my friend.

 

With 4 attempts in a row I wasn't even able to finish a single battle as at some random point (no matter if I was alive or dead and spectating) my game would freeze. And it froze completely. I wasn't able to do anything, mouse cursor wouldn't respond, same with keyboard, no ALT+F4, CTRL+ALT+DELETE or ALT+TAB options possible. The only way out was a hard reset.

 

As frustrating as such problem can be, the solution (at least in my case) was luckily very easy. Following the advice of my friend I turned off VoIP in game (to do that you need to uncheck the voice chat option in in-game sound settings) and the problem was gone. Just like that.

 

I didn't inspect any further (at least not yet) on whether there was some problem with sound card drivers or maybe with some of aslain's pack mods that I use so I have no idea what the real source of the problem was but as the way to solve it was so simple I decided to write it down here in case anyone experienced the same problem.

 

Cheers.

Hey, it's usually Discord overlay that causes troubles with games (even if it's hidden), so disabling that completely might help you.
