    Monkey Island Special Editions crash on launch with 16.9.1 (Sep 13) driver


      Both Special Edition of Monkey Island games now crash for me on launch on Windows 10 x64 (all updates installed), with the latest AMD drivers installed (16.9.1 Sep 13).


      The message is a popup "xxx has stopped working" when trying to launch each of the games. And then nothing. It directly returns/ crashes to the Desktop.

      (where xxx is "MISE.exe" and "Monkey Island 2 Special Edition" respectively for the games)


      This is true for the versions of the games on both Steam and GOG.

      I am refering to these games:

      Monkey Island 1: http://store.steampowered.com/app/32360/

      Monkey Island 2: Monkey Island™ 2 Special Edition: LeChuck’s Revenge™ on Steam


      The games worked without issues before updating my drivers to this version.

      However my previous version of the AMD drivers was 16.7.3, and the one before that was 15.11.


      Maybe, it's worth noting that Nvidia's latest drivers also have this issue with these games. Reportedly people reverting their drivers to a previous version can work around the issue.
