HOW TO FIX "Default Radeon WattMan settings have been restored due to unexpected system failure" - AT LEAST FOR ME

     I've been having this issue for quite a while now. You can check it here ("Default Radeon WattMan settings have been restored due to unexpected system failure" and "Radeon Settings: Host Application stopped working" ) and here (Lineage II - 16.12.2 driver crashing when opening multiple game instances ).

 

     What I found out is that some game graphics settings conflicts with the driver's graphics settings. In my case, any of these 3 game settings makes the game crashes.

The solution, for me, was disabling these in-game features and enabling them on the driver:

I suggest disabling all the driver's graphics settings and lowering game's graphics to the minimum and then start increasing it slowly to see what is causing conflict with the driver.

Thanks redfury for all the patience on helping me to find this out. Please, amdmatt, send this to developers because this is clearly a driver issue. This isn't happening on Crimson 16.5 and not happening with iGPU or any other graphics card either.
