I updated to 0.6.9 and tried to launch the game, but then this happened. I've tried re-installing the game but the same problem still occurs. 

 

I run Mac version 10.11.6

2.5 GHz Intel Core i7

AMD Radeon R9 M370X 2048 MB

I have this problem to, running the game under wine on Debian Linux. I have it set up slightly differently, in a 64bit prefix with windows emulation set to a more recent version, but get exactly the same issue. Unfortunately as we're not running on a windows platform I doubt it will get much attention at all. The problem is probably some imperfect implementation in wine. Having done some googling there doesn't seem to be a fix floating around the internet yet. Be patient and eventually someone will come up with one.

It's quite likely due this patch introduction Dx11 with the option to continue using Dx9 and some API confusion.

I was also having critical errors and could not launch the game after the update (using a Windows 10 pc).  I use the camouflage remover from Aslain's mod pack, and had re-installed that after the update.  I tried de-installing the camo remover, and the game launched normally.  Re-installed it, critical error again.

There seems to be a problem with the modded file camouflages.xml, which is used instead of the default file if you are running a mod that affects camouflage. 

If you are using a mod, this might be your problem.  A quick fix or way to test this, is to delete or rename the modded camouflages.xml file, which is found here:

     World_of_Warships > res_mods > 0.6.9.0 > camouflages.xml

After deleting or renaming that file, I was able  to launch the game normally.  Hopefully mod developers can update their camouflages.xml files soon.

Good luck!

I'm not running any mods (nor  have I ever), but I will try this when I get home. Are you running on a platform other than windows?

This fix worked for me. Cheers, mate.

Unfortunately I didn't find the XML file you deleted, so it's not the issue I'm having

The error I get is an access violation at address 0x00D81E60 which is the same as the OP, so this probably affects anyone playing with the mac wrapper or on linux.

Thought I was gonna get a fix from today's update, but there was none.

Also, I run the game in vanilla.

I'm updating my GPU Drivers in hopes that it'll get fixed. I'll edit once I find a fix.

we just ave to wait till Codeweavers are able to make a new wrapper that  is able to deal with  the changes.  ( tanks was the same and it eventually got a fix)

 

Having said that Wargaming really should get there act together and get the patches to them sooner so they can be put out the same time as the patch. 

 

Mac people buy premium ships etc, there gotten our money, we shouldn't be subjected to this every patch.

How long is this going to take though? The RN BB flag missions only last a week.

If you have the same address in the error as me and the OP see this link...

https://bugs.winehq.org/show_bug.cgi?id=43515

seems a bug with an empty environment variable ProgramData... set that and try again.

edit: I tried the fix they suggested and it works.

The fix is pretty simple, you need to set the PROGRAMDATA environment variable, I don't think it matters what you set it to as WoWs doesn't use that path. I just set mine to c:\

Update: I went to WoWs and downloaded their new wrapper. I installed the Wrapper and replaced my original files. The game now works and still allows me to connect to SEA servers.
