Radeon Adrenalin broke Command and Conquer

Postby rawman024 » Sun Jan 14, 2018 7:01 am

Just a heads up if anybody has radeon adrenaline 17.12.1 like i do it has broken Command and Conquer game line along with lord of the rings battle for middle earth and witcher 1. I kept getting error "exception in exception handler" when trying to launch game. It was pissing me off so started googleing and finally found out it was my graphics driver update that broke game. AMD will correct the error in a future update but for now you can download a early access update for your amd graphics cards "Radeon Software Adrenalin Edition 18.1.1 Alpha" here http://support.amd.com/en-us/kb-articles/Pages/RSAE-18.1.1-Alpha-Release-Notes.aspx. AMD says This alpha driver has not been fully tested by AMD and is not recommended for general use. But if you need to play your directx9 based games this update should work for you. Hopefully i can save others the headache i went through trying to figure this out.

Happy Gaming

if i posted in wrong place i am sorry

Sounds like their update was not tested and not intended for general use. I swear I think companies use the public now as testers instead of actually paying testers on anything electronic or software related.
