AMD Adrenalin Driver Update Breaks Some Older Games
AMD Adrenalin Driver is Causing DirectX 9 Games to be Unplayable on PC
14 January, 2018, 06:01
In the waning hours of 2017, a new story popped up about AMD's latest drivers. Heralding the arrival of AMD Radeon Software Adrenalin Edition, CEO Lisa Su wrote that it was the firm's biggest release ever, and would provide "a truly outstanding PC experience". Today, AMD is confirming that they will be fixing the bugs in the old DX9 games.
This new-found bug is preventing DirectX 9 titles from booting up whatsoever, although luckily not all DX9 titles are affected - that really would be a nightmare for a gamer's back catalogues.
The controversy started on AMD's own official support forums. There are a lot of great games on the list, but the most notable are the first two Witcher games, much of the Command and Conquer series, The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim and The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion, and most games based on Valve's Source engine like the evergreen CS:GO and Team Fortress 2. These titles seem to be having little issue with the new drivers, however, pointing to what is possibly a more localised issue. There are surely still a good number of players of these classic RTS games and the other games bullet pointed, even though they might be a decade old or more. BTW Terry is head of the driver and software team at AMD, above you can read his response. The initial response came way to quick and seems to be the default position not to fix old games. It would have been extremely odd if AMD had not looked into this issue. A fix will be made available to consumers as soon as possible according to AMD. Either way, for now, PC gamers will have their backwards compatibility preserved. One day, however, DX9 titles will probably only run on older hardware with older drivers.
