Looks like running game in windows 7/8 compat mode solves the crashes, but then framerate goes to hell and game is not pleasant to play.
I'm sure it's also the game devs problem but man what a shitfest.
That steam post also mentions crashes in Old Blood as well, but I can tell you, having played all the way through OB using 17.8.2 just a few days ago, with frequent checkpoint reloads, that I had not a single crash of any sort. What I *can* complain about is the extremely long checkpoint reloads and very long pauses as cutscenes were loaded; except for these, though, gameplay was pretty much flawless. Texture popup & LOD issues are greatly reduced (as to be unnoticeable, really) from the FuryX. I'm highly suspicious of crash claims when Vega is under heavy load, as I've had zero gaming or benchmark crashes, and am inclined to blame power delivery to the card rather than the card itself.
In any case, thanks for the headsup! I intend to play through New Order as well soon, before the new game comes out!
I have an RX480 card and games like Doom, BF1, forza horizon 3, etx. run fine. So I think if the power delivery was faulty I'd have problems with those games too. Also lots of people complaining about same random crashes in W:NO.
I blame mostly the gamedevs because I want to think that AMD people looked into this issue but couldn't fix it, because of reasons. I will play this game because I can't refund but no more games from that lazy devs.
