Crimson global settings or game profiles don't seem to do anything.

As the title says, changing any setting doesn't seem to have any effect. I've been trying to improve Fallout 4 performance but have realised that nothing I change in Crimson does anything. I'm testing this mainly by changing anti-aliasing settings, as I find this easiest to see in game. The only part that works is overdrive/fan speed setting (both global and game profile works, though when using a game profile I usually have to restart fallout 4 a couple of times to get the fan going).


I have tried reinstalling Crimson many times, using AMD cleanup and DDU first, and tried all the recent Crimson versions since December.

I have tried removing the exe from Crimson and re-adding, both by letting it scan and also browsing to the correct exe.

I have tried using both the Fallout 4 exe and the launcher exe.

I have tried running the game in both fullscreen and borderless windowed.


Eventually I gave up and went to Radeon Pro for adjustments (works fine) but this doesn't include the Shader Cache option and I would like to try this. I assume as nothing else works in my Crimson profile, the Shader Cache isn't either, but it's impossible to tell. I don't know where it's located so can't see if it's filling up.


Thanks in advance for any help.
