I have been hoping for a solution to this serious problem. But I'm seeing that the issue is not solved.
A lot of people with an amd setup have this problem for months. On GTA 5 there are some shaders problems that create odd artifacts when they are set on "very high". The only solution is to set them on "normal". But, in this way, we lose many graphic details and we are compeled to have a not-full experience of this amazing game....
Pls AMD!! do something or try to suggest us an effective solution =(
As I always (by habit) never use something that is going to "optimize" something for me, I am very curious as to which of the three choices have a positive effect with the game shaders.
Nothing change. I've tried your suggestions but the problem persists. I've tried not only to change the shader cache option, but I've also tried to adopt your same setting that you use on call of duty.
The only playable solution to have a decent game experience is to switch the shader option to "normal" inside the game option. Moreover, I had to substitute the d3dx9_43.dll inside the system 32 windows folder in order to avoid a lot of random crashes of the game. As I supposed, it's a driver problem because with some old amd drivers there is not this huge complication. For example, using the crimson driver 16.7.3 whql the issue doesn't exist. All works fine... (but obiviously I can't play with new games such as ac origins, using that old driver).
It's really disgraceful that a lot of new amd drivers can't handle a 2014 videogame -.-°°°
my specs are:
OS: Windows 10 64 bit creative edition
Graphic Card: Sapphire Nitro Radeon r9 380 4gb
Processor: Amd fx 8350 8 core
PC Sink: Artic Freezer A30
Power supply: 650W
Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-970A-UD3P (rev. 2.х) socket am3+ chipset amd 970
HD1: ssd ocz-arc100
HD2: wdc wd10eads-65l5b1 1 TB (here I install all my games)
The temperatures are around 70/75° for the gpu
and 55/60° for the cpu
The shader cache should have no effect at all on the 'graphic details' of any game. That's not it's purpose. That setting could be a little high for your card/computer as well...nothing wrong with using "normal".
I wish I had this game to offer to test and offer you good advice. I can offer this though and hope it helps. If you are using a custom profile for GTA5, that profile or whatever the drivers custom override or enhancement feature is doing to your game, may be an issue that I have no help for. Some engines just don't play nice with the drivers taking over. However have you chosen the option of resetting that profile to default and then deactivating it, this will ensure the driver and only the game engine is running things. This has fixed issues I have had in the past with Battlefield 4. I know different games and engines but just a thought.
Shame you can 't get it working. Make sure you report it to AMD maybe they will fix it. They fixed the recent DX9 issue pretty quick. Have you checked any game forums for that game like on Steam or other gaming sites. Sometimes those guys figure out some pretty creative work arounds to issues. Good luck to you!
Hey after a quick google search many are saying this isn't an AMD issue but actually a corruption in the user account on windows. Try creating another user account and launch the game from there. Maybe you get lucky and it works for you too! Definitely an easy thing to try!
With this information you provided leads me to think that the user profile corruption is a likely culprit. Seeing as the cache location would be within the folders unique to the profile! So very possible their is an issue with read/write or security settings that gets fixed by using a new profile. Again very easy to create another user profile and try the game from there. Hope he actually gives this a try.
Seeing as there is this thread Radeon Adrenaline Edition GTA V Artifacts
I'm unsub from this.
I have done a complete format C of my primary hd and I have re-installed the game with a fresh installation. The user profile is not the problem. I have substituted the .dll file in order to avoid the error err_gfx_3d3_init that always occured after 5-10 minutes of gaming.
That's too bad. I haven't a clue then what to try next other than a new driver or an update from the games maker. I know I just uninstalled a few old games I liked that were broken when MS abandoned windows live. Unfortunately your game isn't really that old and probably an easy fix if the appropriate party would just fix it. Good luck!
