Watch Dogs: Legion Crash - Event ID 0 from source nvlddmkm cannot be found ➶
Watch Dogs: Legion keeps crashing when enemy drones are searching for you, especially when taking control of one.
To reproduce, cause some trouble and then hijack one of the riot control drones that’s after you, and use it to shoot at other enemies.
Eventually the game crashes.
Update 2023-11-29: The FIX: Crashes stopped when I turned off raytracing and DLSS in the graphics quality settings. I managed to continue the game.
Update 2023-11-27: More evidence of a problem with the drones in the game and Nvidia’s drivers causing a crash.
Update 2023-11-20: The game still crashes, so this does not fix it :( I’m updating my ticket with Ubisoft support to let them know.
**The fix**, from user SamS_98 in the above Microsoft Support link:
Open the NVIDIA control panel (usually located next to the clock in your system tray, bottom right)
Click on “Help” in the top row and click “Debug mode”
What this does, it downclocks your card to the founders edition specs. You would have to enable this every time after a reboot.
The reasoning I have found for this is that ever since one of the driver/windows updates, most games are unable to handle the factory OC cards and will crash after a while. Sometimes 5 minutes, sometimes 1 hour.
