SolvedHardcrashing my system into a restart

Hey guys, NTW player here

So I recently got NTW, yep great game and amazing graphics for a pretty old engine.


I mean I've already read about 7 discussions about this issue (9 if you include the horribly made ones)

So basically NTW will make my entire system pull a restart at some point if I press the "End turn" button on what I like to call the "map screen" (Im unaware of its proper name) and it has about a 20-30% chance of hardcrashing my system into a restart, which can be annoying, but it will rarely or never hardcrash in 'battle mode" (where you assemble your troops to tactically eliminate the enemy)

I have updated graphics drivers, changed preferrences.script and even asked so many NTW players how to fix this

My simple answer from many NTW players was "its poorly optimized and crashes a lot" and thats actually appauling, I mean about 90% of the people who claim the easy fix is "oh delete the pref.script file it fixes it 100%" which is false, it doesnt fix the problem

If anybody has a solution to this godawful mess of a poorly optimized but great looking game, please tell me.


EDIT: No other game does this apart from Dayz (which rarely happens compared to NTW plus it is an early alpha) and MoWAS2 (men of war) but games like battlefront EA or battlefield or far cry 4 or any other game requiring serious graphics dedication never does this, I would really love if anybody could give me SOME type of solution.
