I like the installer and the ui, but during the install it did hang for a minute and caused a little anxiety. The screen went blank for a bit, and then all was well.
So far I've tested a few games, will test more later.
1.Star Wars Battlefront: I did notice the corrupted textures on character's face during weapon selection at the beginning of each round. That wasn't too bad, but it's there and annoying. Should be fixed asap. No noticeable improvement in game performance.
I also noticed that same annoying shadow/lighting glitch on the Ice Caves map, that was present in the 15.11.1 beta drivers, but not the 15.7.1 drivers. Hopefully someone will read this and get it fixed. ::clears throat:: AMD_RAY???? Basically there's a black shadow over everything, and once you go into the caves it disappears.

2.Farcry 4: It launched, and ran great. I did notice an improvement here.
I might be able to live with the battlefront thing, but I hope dice will release a patch soon to fix it...
Stay tuned for more tests

Wow, after testing Fallout 4 I have mixed feelings.
3.Fallout 4: Compass corruption, cuts in and out etc... Usually if you're aiming your cross hairs on an object it shows up, but then disappears. This really sucks, because otherwise the game runs great, much better than 15.7.1. I guess I could pretend that radiation broke the compass, for a more immersive experience, but I'd rather have it fixed. It's important to the game... How the hell did testers miss this???
4.Hatred runs great, other than the audio cutting out at the beginning of levels, but this was always there with all previous drivers.
5.Shadow of Mordor seems to run a little better, but there is some graphic corruption in the upper left corner of the screen where it shows your mission objectives. Why? Who the heck knows, but it's terrible. It's likely related to the corrupted textures in Battlefront, and maybe even the corrupted compass in Fallout 4.
Some might say this is minor stuff, but it's pretty annoying.
6.GTA5 runs fabulous, but when setting a waypoint the waypoint track flickers a lot like the compass in Fallout 4.
I'll be testing the rest and getting back, I'm also going to see if X-wing Alliance works... lol It's an oldie, but I still rock it.

7.Dying Light runs well and no issues here.
8.Battlefield 4 runs well, no issues yet.
9.Dead Rising 3 also had no issues.
1. hadow/Lighting glitch on the Ice Cave map in Star Wars Battlefront needs to be fixed asap. This was present in the 15.11.1 beta drivers, but not the 15.7.1 drivers. The workaround is to turn lighting to medium. Hopefully someone will fix this.
2. The compass glitch in Fallout 4 wasn't present in 15.11.1 or 15.7.1, but it is here. It's annoying, there's a way to get the .dll files from the 15.11.1 driver and put them in the game directory.
3. The GTA 5 minimap waypoint glitch is present in Crimson, but not previous drivers. Using the .dll files from 15.11.1, and putting them in the game directory has worked for this as well. Again just a workaround.
4. The Shadow of Mordor glitch seems to be related to the GTA 5 and Fallout 4 glitches. All have to do with 2D overlay. Maybe all three will be solved with a hotfix.
I like the UI, Please just fix the bugs.
Hi! Could you please tell me which dll files youre referring to that I need to put in the game folder for the GTA 5 minimap flickering?
I'm not sure, but you can get them here. There are two files. Place them both in the same directory the game .exe file is.
The link says its for fallout4 but it will work with gta5 as well. Same concept, basically the game is using the dlls from it's own directory first, before getting them from the driver directory. Those dlls are from a previous version that didn't have these glitches.
The compass and minimap issue isn't enough for me to mess with it and fix it. I don't feel like going and deleting those dlls later, or having them interfere with a new driver release or a patch. I did do a similar thing with Typing of the Dead, because textures were missing in that game.
This kind of workaround is nothing new.
Hope it helps.
Watch the video for directions.
Tnx alot for the help!
