My guess is in the upgrade hot key got confused. Try this:
- Go to Radeon Settings / Home Page (Via desktray icon or right-click desktop 'AMD Radeon Settings)
- Click Preferences (@ Bottom)
- Change the 'Toggle Radeon Overlay Hotkey' key. Click in the box than select a new combinaison. (I like CTRL+SHIFT-Z but use one not already used elsewhere.
- Try it. Let us know if that worked or not for you.
Same problem. Overlay not work.
AMD FX 8350
Sapphire RX 480 8GB
Clean install 18.12.2
Edit: I change language to another language and Overlay again work.
Edit 2: Not working performance metrics. This is "nice" driver.
Edit 3 (temporary fix):
1. AMD Clean Uninstall Utility
2. Download and install driver
3. Change to another language you know
Hello, first: report issues online when i click on that, there is "Redirecting to page" loop, i waited about 30 min and nothing happend, second what is amd reference and how can i obtain that in the problem report wizzard?
Best regards and thanks in advance!
I had a similar problem. The overlay showed up for me but the performance metrics did not. I applied the fix that marekbujko said above.
Asus ROG STRIX RX 480 8GB
Changed the language of Radeon Settings to a different one. Tried the performance metrics and now it is showing.
Switched back to english language, and it is still working. I haven't restarted my computer, so I don't know if the fix is permanent.
I finally got the overlay to work....
I had a similar problem, it would seem the overlay would work on the desktop but not in the games, it would freeze my cursor but nothing would come up. I reinstalled drivers and changed settings followed others posts but nothing worked.
I did finally manage to get it to work with fortnite (only game i'm playing right now) I did the following:
disabled the windows 10 game mode and other capture settings in windows control panel
found the game executable and 1.) disabled fullscreen optimizations 2.) ran in windows 8 compatibility mode
I really think it was modifying the executable that made the difference, once i restarted the game the overlay popped up with both alt+z and alt+r as well as messages regarding recording screen clips.
I hope that helps somebody else
Also, if you have copyright protected content openned in your browser or something like that (In my case it was spotify on google chrome) the ingame overlay won´t appear and if you use the hotkeys to recoord there will be a pop out noifying that there are protected content being played.
