AMD 20.2.2 color bug.

When I open a full-screen game and I edit the colors within the driver by pressing ALT+R and then I quit that game, the colors remain the same on the desktop as if it would still be in that respective game. Previously it would just revert back to the original colors I've had on desktop and automatically switch to the colors I chosen for that respective full-screen app. Is there a fix for this? 

//update : I've already tried to reinstall the driver multiple times and deleted the AMD folders from C Drive and checked to delete old registry entries from DDU.

Re: AMD 20.2.2 color bug.

Apparently the driver 19.12.1 seems to have done the job (i don't know if its gonna last). How comes that an older driver is better than a new one? I still want to use the newer driver but I can't until this bug is fixed or atleast there IS a fix for that. until then ima stay on this one..

This is perfectly normal. Because the driver adjusts the colors for the display, not the game. The GPU drivers do not support custom color selection for only games.

That's the problem. The driver DOES NOT ajust the color for the display. When I adjust my colors for the game and then I quit it, the colors stay THE SAME. I still have the same colors I had when I was playing and this is not normal.

Re: AMD 20.2.2 color bug.

AMD tends to use more than one fork of the drivers meaning they fix something, then use another fork to fix a different problem then release it without having fixed issues that had been fixe in another fork. I don't know why they do this but it happens way more than it should.

You need to let AMD know and tell them what driver worked as well as what did not.

Do not use overlay. Just run Radeon Software and apply color changes. And then go to the game. Probably, color change will be applied. If overlay fails to perform the necessary operations, this problem is a software problem not a driver problem.

Re: AMD 20.2.2 color bug.

this makes no sense. so why there is a option to set custom color for every game profile? natural expected outcome should be modified colors for one game only and it should be restored to global setting when game app is closed.
