It used to be preferences.xml in the main map. But my preferences.xml doenst contain resolution settings only <scriptsPreferences>


According to google and some old ( 2015 ) forum of world of warships there should be something like this:

<windowedWidth> 1920 </windowedWidth>
<windowedHeight> 1018 </windowedHeight>
<fullscreenWidth> 1024 </fullscreenWidth>
<fullscreenHeight> 768 </fullscreenHeight>

somewhere in the preferences.xml but is gone in the current version of the game ( at least in my preferences.xml ), where is the resolution stored nowadays?


I ask this because of some weird bug nvidia or wows related that if i have the aspect ration on "AUTO" the pc resets itself ( game triggers a silent BSOD )

If i manually set the aspect ratio to 21:9 ( i got an ultra wide ) the fatal crash never occurs. 



Because of some weird reason since the last game update the game changed the aspect ration from 21:9 to AUTO on its own. ( which triggers a fatal crash again )

I want to know where the settiing aspect ratio is set nowadays in xml. ( or some other file )


Please dont say preferences.xml because this is my whole preferences.xml:

user_preferences.xml, but game will keep write his own data, especially when You launch a game and move focus to another window. So edit this file and make it read-write only. However it would not stop game from switching radomly to ex. auto, but after restart You will have at least good

preferences file.
