I just recently started receiving the error below while launching Fortnite. I am running the latest driver version 22.5.2. I only receive this message while launching Fortnite and no other games. The game is pretty unplayable in the current state. Is anyone else running into this issue? Thanks in advance for any help.
Do you think this is possibly a result of a windows update? Did you by chance just run these windows 10 updates? I wonder if uninstalling these updates from yesterday and today would be a hotfix.
what im doing for now is just go back and downdload amd 22.2.2 to play fortnite until a patch or fix comes out. the game is normal on 22.2.2. i really dont know what caused this bug though
This is odd because I get the message, however I see no performance issues with the game so it may be a combination of your hardware as well as drivers.
I am running:
I don't think it is a Windows update as I haven't updated for a few days and Fortnite updated earlier when I launched Epic Games Launcher.
That is strange. Did you all download the new version of 22.5.2? I haven't touched it because I have the 22.5.2 from May. It doesn't make sense to me that 22.5.2 is rereleasing. Should it not be 22.6.1? That tends to be the naming scheme for the drivers Year 22 Month 6 Revision 1. Either way if you did update to the new 22.5.2 I suggest trying to find the original.
I Had the same issue and message, I recently bought myself a MSI 6650 XT and when going on fortnite I get the exact same message.
The issue is I cannot downgrade to 22.2.2 as they do not support my card, So unfortunately until they do a Update I am stuck with lag. Really hope a patch comes out soon
Auros Z390 Pro
Crucial - BL16G26C16U4W.16FD x 2 (32 gb)
Samsung EVO 860 500 gb
Sapphire RX 580 8gb
MSI G271 Monitor
Recently installed 22.5.1 Adrenalin drivers, and I get the same message launching Fortnite to downgrade to 22.2.2.
The game has been running fine for me with an average FPS at 120. ( My monitor is only capable of 120 refresh rate, so I have Fortnite settings at capped at 144 )
I do see it go above 120 fps when in game.
I also have textures set to medium, shadows off, view distance at epic (suggested optimizations to max fps)
So I'm also waiting to see if there is any solution or fix for this warning.
Hi Don’t laugh , but I’m getting same message .
I’m running a dinosaur i7 970 six core and amd sapphire r9 270x 32 gig ddr3 ram before update , was running steady 60fps medium settings now laggy as and jumping from 30 - 50fps
the latest legacy driver is installed that just came out ,but it still says warning known issue and that 22.2.2 recommended but can’t install as not supported for my card
Same issue here. Super frustrating as I’m not a computer person… I did everything right to my knowledge- removed prior versions and updated… i still get the warning message and fortnite fails to launch/crashes very often. Mostly just replying here so I can check back for updates
Hi , I tried other driver versions , and also have other cards r9 270 and a HD 7790 as I am running 4 pcs that we play squads on in Fortnite. all are coming up with the same driver message , they all worked fine the day before the new fortnite update, will keep checking back here for a solution as 22.2.2 not compatible with my cards
This is the exact thing I see when launching Fortnite. Sapphire RX580 Pulse. The game runs absolutely fine... Actually I do notice a bit of texture flickering in the grass if I have textures set to full, so I dialed back textures and have eliminated the flickering and gained almost double the frame rate to 144 from 75-90.
I guess I'm not going to concern myself with the error message until it affects the game's ability to run, but it's certainly annoying. Aside from that, the silence on this issue is also annoying since it's been discussed for so long... What's up AMD? Nothing to report after all this time??
Ah, so I'm not going crazy then.
Niece is upset, her PC is running a Sapphire Radeon R9 290X Tri-X card, and getting this 22.2.2 error. She had 22.6.1, and we downgraded to 21.5.1, because 22.2.2 doesn't work with this card. Same error both times saying it needs to be 22.2.2, and if she plays anyways it is choppy and crashes.
We've done the full uninstall of drivers, reinstall, and even tried the 21.Q1.2 drivers to see if any change.
I know an older card, but, still has some life in it.
No you not going crazy haha , it all lies in the hands of amd to fix the driver issues I guess or at the very least fortnite to give an option in error message to turn off the notification at beginning, my cards still work but as you said they seem choppy now
I messaged up Fortnite about this as well. I figured if anything it's a Fortnite issue more than AMD since it's their app asking for a driver that doesn't seem to exist for this card. Plus, it's saying that no matter which version you install, it has known issues? and then insists on 22.2.2 again. I dunno... personally sounds like Fortnite's problem, but, posting in both places because so long as it's fixed, I don't care by who.
