Don't know, haven't tested with older drivers
Quick response from the team at Piranha games
For all of you having this issue with MechWarrior Online here is the fix:
Open the Windows Settings Menu by typing 'Settings' in the Cortana search box on your PC
Type 'Gaming' in the 'Find a Setting' search bar
In the Gaming section, please select the 'Game Mode' tab on the left
In the Game Mode Screen, Toggle the Use Game Mode option to 'Off'
Once this is completed, please head to the location below on your PC and manually delete the 'Attributes.xml' file located here. Once this is completed, please try running MWO one more time and let me know if this issue persists.
C:\Users\<USER NAME>\Saved Games\MechWarrior Online\Profiles\<PILOT NAME>
Restart the client and run MWO repair tool with clean profile unchecked
This will reset the shader cache and keep your game settings and keybinds intact.
This temporary fix may or may not remove the Cry engine error window but the game seems to run fine with zero crashing.
