I'm getting constant crashes right after launching the game. Sometimes when I disable and re-enable Crossfire it works. The game needs some attention though since I get weird flickering on some shaders no matter the graphic settings.

Following up is my latest crash report which is identical to the one before that.

I am getting the same crashes with both Catalyst 15.7.1 and Catalyst 15.9.1 Beta.

Please AMD software engineers if could you look into it.

This appears to be a typical software driver bug and is not likely to be caused by a hardware problem.
The crash took place in a standard Microsoft module. Your system configuration may be incorrect. Possibly this problem is caused by another driver on your system that cannot be identified at this time.
