SnowRunner have an issue with RDNA2 GPUs. There are many posts on game forums, reddit, steam.
This is the steam thread addressing the problem:
I only started playing the game a month ago. But reading from other comments, people say this problem started to occur few months ago. I've tried previous drivers (22.6.2) and for me problem was fixed but others still reported it continues.
I think after Directx11 upgrade for radeon driver (after 7/22) broken SnowRunner for RDNA2 and it has been months without a fix.
Unfortunately things such as this, make people say "amd is bad"; troll, fanboy or otherwise. And people have right to say it. Nobody should suffer such visual glitch for months on fav game after paying premium price to Rdna2 gpu. Stuff like this give radeon bad name nonetheless. Please work on this on your next update and fix the issues with SnowRunner.
Thank you for sharing screenshots, it will help to identify the problem quickly.
Those box-shaped texture tilings or brown dots, those happen on every gpu. It is engine related and there was a response from developers at sabre with an apology and they are trying to fix it. Few weeks back on SR reddit.
Our problem though are these spikes or earthquake crack like deformations on terrain as Radeon gpu users. So far I never seen someone with other brand gpu having it, everybody experiencing it has RDNA2 gpu. In short, it is AMD driver. And other AMD Gpu's don't have the issue, isolated to RDNA2/6000 series.
Hello to everyone reading.
I was considerating the purchase of an Radeon RX 6800, but now reading this post Im not that sure.
Swnorunner is the main Truck SIM game I play so it will be a really bad option to get this GPU if it have problems with this game.
Was this fixed, or is it still an issue???
Issue still persists. SR just got an update as you probably know and they didn't fix anything on their end regarding game engine.
For RDNA2, you can fix the issue by switching directx11 API dll manually as explained here:
Да, я только что попробовал новый драйвер, 23.3.1, и проблема все еще существует.
Проблема в том, что когда трейлер остается без присмотра на карте, и вы возвращаетесь к нему, тогда появляются шипы.
Я понимаю, почему люди покупают nvidia из-за такой проблемы.
Я много раз устанавливал и старые драйверы и новые. Каждый раз через AMDCleanup utility. Переустанавливал игру, вычищал реестр. Не хочу сносить Windows(11). Хотя вернулся бы наверно на 10. Microsoft тоже подкидывают проблем
I've come to the conclusion the bug happens when a trailer is left on the map by the player and you leave the area, quit the game and come back later (or leave the map and come back to the trailer). The spikes in the ground are always by abandoned trailers when I play.
What strikes me as odd is that for all the months that this bug has been hapenning that no one who works for AMD software also plays Snowrunner. It seems so unlikely that no one at AMD plays Snowrunner and therefore hasn't looked into this issue. I've posted on the Sabre3D forums about it so they don't seem too bothered either.
These are the things that drive people away from a particular brand.
Actually It may not be only related to trailers, I'm seeing it in coop now where there are no trailers around just mine and my partners truck and the spikes come up right in front of me.
SAPHIRE RX 6700 spikes problem after saving and loading the game, GYGABITE RTX 3060 Ti no problem, tested on the same PC, Win 10 and Win 11, all possible versions of drivers, I bought AMD only because I had a gaming monitor that only supported freesync, but I'd rather buy G-sync and nVidia than deal with constant problems from AMD, never more AMD
