    r7 250 gpu scaling not working?

    travadia

      hello.

      i am a bit confused.. i have games and i want to play them on different resolutions. but my problem is: the games are stretched in full screen and that looks silly.

      so i wanted to make use of the gpu scaling/scaling options in amd (i have amd driver version 17.11.4)

      on many threads i read that gpu scaling is solved in 17.11.2.. but somehow it isnt for me.

       

      let me explain, there are 3 options for me: keeps aspect ration, full screen and centered (my driver and pc isnt english, so i tried to translate the 3 options i can choose in scaling menu)

      what i did: turn on gpu sclaing and then pick "centered" in scaling.

      then i tried to open a game: nothing happens. no sclaing. only full screen and ugly stretching.

      next what i tried: i made a game profile for a game i wanted to start andit is possible to add scaling option to a single game profile, too. so i set up scaling to "centered" in game profile.

      then opened game again: nothing hapens, just ugly stretching.

       

      last thing i did: i changed my desktop resolution and surprise: sclaing worked. my desktop was 1600x900 centered. not strectehd. there were black bars filling the rest of the screen and my desktop was original, not-stretched 1600x900 now.

       

      but my problem is: i dont want to change desktop resolution always, when i want to play a game with different resolution. back then i had a gforce gpu. and there was never a problem with scaling. my screen resolution was full hd, and when i opened a game with lower resolution, my gforce automatic changed my screen so i could play with centered, not-stretched game display. and when i turn off game, my resolution went back to full hd.

       

      but AMD is buggy. it doesnt change ratio when i open game. its still stretched. it only changes centered ratio when i completele change my desktop resolution manually.

       

      what can i do? should i uninstall AMD and amke a clean new install? is there a fix for this error?

       

      greetings and thanks for reading.

          hi again

           

          i am a bit sad no one answered.

          now a new version is out. 17.12.1

          it still isnt fixed and it is even worse now.

          now when i manually change desktop resolution, it isnt centered anymore, it is on the left top corner now. still black bars, but now only right and bottom.
