How to Fix War on the Sea Issues

Verify War on the Sea Game Integrity on Steam

Every time that you encounter the game crashing on War on the Sea, you should first verify the integrity of the game. This process will repair any missing or damaged files that cause your War on the Sea game to crash. Below are the steps on how to do this:

  1. Open Steam and click the Library tab.
  2. On the left side, find and right-click War on the Sea’s icon.
  3. Select Properties and go to Local Files tab.
  4. Under this section, click the “Verify integrity of game files…” button.

Wait until the verification is complete and see if the issue has been solved. If not, proceed to the next step.

Update PC Drivers

Another reason why you’re getting a black screen and random game crash while playing War on the Sea is your outdated PC drivers. Below are the download links where you can get the latest and official drivers for your computer.

Stop Resource-Hogging Software

Chances are you have lots of applications installed on your PC. Some of these applications have been constantly using the resources that possibly trigger War on the Sea crashing. We highly suggest closing the applications that you are not using while playing War on the Sea.

Some of the most popular applications that eat lots of resources while in the background are web browsers like Opera and Chrome Browser, Media Players like GOM Player and VLC,  and more. You can also check the Task Manager and see if there’s any application eating lots of resources in your background.

Exclude or Temporarily Disable Antivirus

Another reason why War on the Sea keeps on crashing on PC is your antivirus. Antivirus companies such as AVG, Norton, and ESET have been usually updating their software to enhance security. There’s a chance that War on the Sea’s executable file (.exe) is being marked as a virus.

If you download War on the Sea from the official site such as Steam, we’re 100% sure that the game files are safe. Your antivirus may be giving you a false positive report. So, you have to exclude the .exe of War on the Sea and see if the problem has been solved.
