AMD catalyst recognising javaw.exe as Jedi Academy

Jump to solution

I used to add javaw.exe profile in catalyst in order to play minecraft using my dedicated amd r7 gpu.

After a catalyst's update, it started recognising javaw.exe as an old game, Star Wars Jedi Knight: Jedi Academy, and now minecraft runs in the integrated gpu, with much lower performance.

Does anyobody know how can I run Minecraft back in the dedicated GPU?

I think you need to click on the marked panel and then select javaw.exe.

Everything related to minecraft is set to high performance and still it runs under intel's gpu...

In device Manager...do you have any yellow marks?

Do you have the computer power plan set to 'Performance" ?

It is. As I said, minecraft used to run under the amd r7, but then catalyst started recognising javaw as this Jedi thing. Counter strike and other games run normally under the r7.

I would try a clean install of the AMD drivers...note that now it is suggested to disconnect from the internet while uninstalling/installing the drivers and rebooted the computer.

Clean Install AMD Graphics Drivers

DDU has new instructions..make sure you have the latest version

I did it twice, reinstalling java and everything. It is still being recognised as Jedi Academy and minecraft doesn't run under the r7. I just don't get why it used to word and now it doesn't
