[Bug] Graphic corruption Links 2003 w/ R5600XT & 20.2.2 Driver

Hello, I had to recently replace my AMD R390 card and decided to go w/ a new PowerColor Red Dragon RX5600XT.

Using the Radeon Adrenaline 20.2.2 drivers I am seeing graphic corruption in Links 2003 as shown in the attachment. The checkerbox corruption effect occurs on the foreground 3D player and additional corruption happens elsewhere onscreen, and the ball does not show on the overhead sub-view when hit.

Normally on this old game I have to override the anti-aliasing and choose 8XEQ and Supersampling to get the most detail out of it.

Unfortunately no combo of options works.

Links 2003 is using the last .exe patch from this location:

Links Country Club - Official Site for the Links 2003 Golf Game and Links 2003 Courses - Golf Games ...

Visual Pinball X (I'll create a new thread for this: [Bug] Graphic corruption/artifacts in Visual Pinball X (5600XT 20.2.2) )
Am also seeing graphic drop outs with Visual Pinball X when you load a table into the editor and hit F6 to adjust the table's height and viewing angle. The table is completely missing. If you load it up with F5 to *play* it though it is there. Very odd. 

Notice also in the picture a few replies below that the anti-aliasing creates the weird 'blocks' on a pinball table too, on the flippers and launch lane.

Anyhow, these are two datapoints for this new card and new drivers. The R390 doesn't have these issues w/ the 20.2.1 drivers of course.

I submitted a bug report at https://www.amdsurveys.com/se/5A1E27D23A3DE966.

Is there another place I should submit to get AMD's attention? Thanks!

I saw in another thread https://community.amd.com/message/2960733?commentID=2960733#comment-2960733 that this may be related to older DX9 games not taking AA or AF (maybe more) overrides, which these two are, I believe.

Re: Graphic corruption R5600XT / Links2K3 & VPinball X / 20.2.1 Driver

Creating and changing game profiles on the driver panel can cause similar problems. You need to delete the game profile on the driver panel and try again. Also, such graphic issues should be reported to AMD with the link.

Thank you for weighing in, these issues arise even with no profiles for the games present unfortunately.

I've also submitted a ticket to the form you referenced.  Will keep crossing my fingers for the next build.  Seems like this generation of 5XXX drivers are quite an concern.

Dang, continues to happen with today's 20.2.2.

Visual Pinball graphic corruption with these little squares on the tables are also present.  Something to do with anti-aliasing?

This is after full uninstall with DDU and the AMD Cleanup utility.  No game profiles created.  Standard global profile (non-gaming, non-egaming).  Didn't have this issue w/ an older R390 with these drivers.  Wonder what card generation I could move to that wouldn't have these.  Maybe the Vega 64?

Thanks, good to know if it gets to the point I switch teams to NVIDIA.  My prior AMD card the R9 390 worked fine too.  I've got another week to return this 5600XT, thinking upon it.  

I'm inclined to stay in the AMD camp as I'll eventually get a Freesync monitor for playing emulated games via MAME at their original frequencies.

Just to be sure, I uninstalled the Adrenaline package and did a device manager install of just the drivers from the install directory to take the Adrenaline UI etc. out of the mix. 

Unfortunately I have the same problems, graphic corruption on 3D objects in the foreground which were probably trying to be anti-aliased.

This seems to be a driver issue. So it has nothing to do with stability issues for you. You may try changing screen resolution settings to a 4:3 format for this game because the game that supports the old and 4: 3 format. And the new Radeon driver, I think, creates incorrect graphics due to this format.

Re: Graphic corruption R5600XT / Links2K3 & VPinball X / 20.2.2 Driver

Thanks, I did go back to 4:3 and tried full-screen and windowed modes but the graphic corruption remains.

While my old R390 (circa 2015) works, I wonder if I could go with a Vega 64 or something like the 590 and get working results from the driver.
