When I launch the game and log in, everything is fine but after a half minute the screen freezes but the cursor still is moveable. I can only exit by the task manager.

Do you have some mods? If you do - first step is to get rid of them and to check if the game works then

 

Also... was it called "game integrity check" on the launcher? Something like that

I had this problem and it seems to have been caused by selecting too high a graphics rating.  When I dropped from High to Medium the problem went away.

Seriously guys there is a forum search option this question has been asked in a variety of ways by a variety of players and it gets pretty dull a having to copy and pasted the answers constantly... here is the C&P and I may just post a thread and ask for a sticky....

 

have just posted on another thread on this section here ----->   

 

The cache trick does seem to work IF you have larger memory capacity in your rig how to change it....

1) Go to World_of_Warships/res folder

2) Find engine_config

3) Under " animation" you will find <streamCacheSizeKB>2048</streamCacheSizeKB> feel free to change this number to "UPTO" 1/2 of your system RAM total though much above 4096 is overkill...

 

For general slowdowns,  then here is an oldie but goldie, for Big World engine...

 

1) Find your Wows executable file, make a shortcut to it (maybe to desktop) 

2) Right click on the shortcut, click properties, then click on "TARGET" right arrow all the way to the end of the string.

3) Hit the space bar (ensuring you have NOT highlighted all the characters) then type in +fullproc

4) Apply and OK.

 

Copy and paste (Sorry)

 

Just a few observations from my own personal hell that has been WoWs random crashes etc.... 

 

1) Uninstall ALL mods also delete mods folder AFTER uninstall and reboot.... See if this solves the issue. If it does then you will need to add any mods you wish to use one by one until you find the culprit.

2) Check your drivers on Graphics card... most of the crashes I get are alongside a bong noise and a gfx error....

3) And the best one... go to your WoWs launcher...click on  " GAME SETTINGS", click on  "CHECK AND REPAIR" then click "CONTINUE"....and wait for it to do its' thing.... solves maybe 90% of issues (mainly after a large update...

4) Nuclear option and best if you have a fast connection, is to uninstall, delete ALL WoWs folders, reboot and do a clean install...

 

For maintenance purposes here are some suggestions for you...

 

1) IF you have a large mechanical storage drive then once you have a nice fresh install running copy the whole folder over to a second directory and name it backup WoWs.... remember to delete ALL the contents of the update folder before hand as WoWs stores all updates files which are useless once the update is completed so save the massive space here.

2) IF you have a very fast connection then the best advice is to do a full uninstall/reinstall at EVERY MAJOR patch... this gets you away from the issue that the engine seems to have with corruption on older files and locations etc... 

3) Once you have launched into the game go back to windows and close the WG Game Centre... remembering to also close it in your notification panel.... this thing is as buggy as heck and causes all sorts of random stuff to happen to your machine.

 

For Diagnosis ideas keep an eye on memory usage as there is a well known issue with WoWs and memory leak / release of paged memory... if you are running low RAM in your machine then this could be what is happening after an extended playing period.... simple solution is when committed memory is running too high restart the client and/or reboot the machine... to reset the process.

Also check what stuff is running in background as I have found on occasion that having Chrome open on certain scripted pages can cause issues too...
