    Crimson 16.10.1 missing display settings

    rkok

      After installing the latest crimson 16.10.1 the Display menu is now missing from Crimson.

      So, I can no longer change freesync settings nor can i change virtual super resolution or color temperature.

      In addition to this, advance settings is ALSO missing so i cant even change any settings to do with multi display or multi gpu selection.

       

      FFS AMD, do u guys even test your bloody applications before you release it?

              Describe your system:

              • AMD Graphics Card
                • AMD R9 290X 4GB ( x 3 in crossfire configuration )
              • Desktop or Laptop System
                • desktop
              • Operating System
                • Windows 10 Pro 64bit
              • Driver version installed
                • Radeon Software Crimson Edition 16.10.1
              • Display Devices
                • Acer XR34 CK1 Freesync monitor connected via Mini Display Port - DP 1.2 enabled.
              • Motherboard
                • MSI Gaming Godlike X99
              • CPU/APU
                • Intel Core i7 - 5930K
              • Power Supply Unit  Make, Model & Wattage
                • EVGA SuperNova G2 - 1600w
              • RAM
                • 32GB

              Describe your issue:

              • From crimson main menu - 2 of the usual menu tabs are missing in this version of the driver package. one of them being Display settings.
              • Another thing that is missing is the ability to access advance settings - the clickable link is now just a text table on your UI.

               

              I have installed this driver with the following procedure

              - complete uninstall of existing 16.9.3 driver using DDU in safe mode

              - install new 16.10.1 driver in normal mode after a restart, with AV (anti-virus) disabled

               

              Also noticed, once 16.10.1 is installed, if i attempt to re-install over the existing driver without an uninstall, the second attempt will succeed but upon system restart i now get an error saying ATI dll is image is corrupted, and now the system is unusable as windows will freeze in a matter of seconds. - I am now forced to go into safe mode to restore the system. Just before the system freezes, if you right-click on mouse context menu, you will suddenly see 2 BLUE crimson icons instead of the usual RED icon -> the Radeon Pro features are suddenly enabled via context menu (even tho you cant use it because windows would have come to a complete freeze by the time your eyes spot these icons and read their description)

                  I am using the latest 16.10.2 now and the missing menu problem is gone now.

                   

                  However, these issues still remain:

                  1) driver upgrade from x->y succeeds but windows crashes upon restart + login. In safe mode you can still see the radeon pro version of crimson activated (but it will crash if you try to activate it). This seems to be a driver install problem where the wrong DLL or settings are configured for the 'upgrade' install option.

                   

                  with the above I was forced to use DDU for a clean uninstall and then a fresh install of the new driver which is really inconvenient.

                   

                  2) occasionally while gaming in full screen mode, the game will automatically 'alt-tab' back to windows desktop for no reason

                   

                  3) on system restart (this only happened once so far) the crossfire mode is disabled and I had to re-activate it in the crimson advance settings. i suspect this problem is related to the display adapter detecting and using a different enumerated device for the monitor resulting in 'new' set of settings. this problem also relates to some people seeing their windows desktop defaulting to a LOW resolution when the display wakes from sleep -> windows fails to detect the current display via display port and defaults to its backup display which is a low resolution display.

                   

                  #1 is definitely an AMD issue which i think they need to resolve as its been around since the past few releases of Crimson driver updates.

                   

                  #2 and #3 i think is a Windows 10 issues - but no excuse here as AMD should work closer with MS to resolve these issues too.

                   

                  lastly, this probably doesnt matter much to me anymore but it may still matter to a few out there ->

                  DIVISION - this stupid game still only scales up to 2 x GPU. with my 3 X crossfire setup the 3rd GPU is never utilized at all.

                    Facing exactly the same issue. I've successfully used amd gpu passthrough in virtual machines for quite some time now. First with Xen-Hypervisor and now via qemu and vfio. And i'm very thankful that your driver at least installs fine in virtual machines. (Nvidia, if you're reading this: Get your 'i won't install in virtual machines'-nonsense together!)
