Describe your issue:

    • I updated my Crimson software last night to 16.82 and lost the crossfire function in each of my gaming profiles as well as the ability to turn on the AMD Crossfire logo in the "Global Options." This is frustrating because it was a convenient, quick way to gauge if my crossfire was working. I spent the greater part of last night and wee hours of this morning using Display Driver Uninstaller in "Safe Mode" to remove old driver versions and then reinstall every WHQL driver and hotfix from 15.12 all the way to 16.82 in Normal Mode. Every iteration of driver that I tested from 15.12 to 16.82 was unable to provide the global crossfire X function and crossfire X logo overlay. Unfortunately I do not know which version I had installed before updating to 16.82 but I know that it was most likely the Crimson minimal driver setup that was offered before 16.73. Please help! I am pulling my hair out over this. I really would just like the global crossfire X logo function back as well as support for individual game profiles.
