Fallout 4 problems after Crimson intall

The compass on Fallout 4 started to flicked after installing the Crimson.

There are multiple people having the same problem with 2xx and 3xx series cards after installing Crimson. Fallout 4's forum on Steam is full of people complaining about this.

I'm running a MSI R9 390 on Win10 Pro.

Here is someone's youtube-video showing the problem in effect:

Yup, same thing happening to me, reason why I checked here actually.
Didn't expect this since AMD's very recently released 15.11.1 beta driver had no issues, even with the Fallout beta patch.

Re: Fallout 4 problems after Crimson intall

I experienced the same problem, installed the fix from nexus and everything worked fine. but then after a day or two my display driver started crashing(text became unreadable, black spots everywhere as if my pixels were broken), tryed fixing it several times, uninstalled .. didn't remove it , tried to do a system restore from windows.. didn't work.. repeated the process like 10 times until it finally had a result. my computer finally is working again but still cant play games.

Have you overclocked the card?

Re: Fallout 4 problems after Crimson intall

Pretty sure I read that the crimson software/driver was causing some GPUs to get stuck at 20% fan speed.
Have you downloaded the new drivers they posted since then?
The new driver is listed below the originals, "AMD Radeon Software Crimson Edition 15.11.1 Update."
Hopefully your card didn't get damaged.

Have you checked your GPU and CPU temps while gaming and made sure nothing is overheating?
