Hey guys, installed the new Crimson driver set. I made sure to uninstall the drivers completely as recommended by AMD and installed the new drivers. Everything went smooth then went to fire up star wars the old republic. Went to get into a fight and noticed my characters lightsaber was not showing up, just the tracer effect and a lighting effect if close to walls. So I went through and did a reinstall and still had the same issues.


To make sure that it wasn't my video card I installed the old set of drivers I was using before

Driver Packaging Version15.201.1151.1005-151012a-295347E-ATI


These are the beta drivers. Fired up the game again and the issue went away. I had then noticed I was having some other issues in game afterwords(turned out to be my heat sink on my cpu came loose after I had pulled my case apart) hoping that had been one of my issues I installed the new drivers again and still ran into the same issue. No other problems other then the graphic for the lightsaber not shwoing up.
