Talking ATI Catalyst 12.11 Beta 11 Modded driver For Legacy GPU - 12-27-2012, 05:09 | posts: 1,869

Anouncement UPDATED: 09/03/2014

Developers have updated asphalt 8. Therefore the profile for asphalt will be
Removed. The new version of asphalt 8 no longer has the Black Texture Bug
Please give it a try If you are amongst one of the many people that play that
Game.




Some Information:
The only Update prepared at the moment is for the DX9 Swither
-Driver Cleaner and Package Cleaner
-Flash GPU Acceleration
------------------------------------------------------------
I did work on improving driver installation and some files did
get updated. I can probably release those but I don't plan on
releasing anything else until the profile system and the update
system is implemented.


The New Profiling System I've been working on is close to completion
for x64Bit Operating System. However, the number of games currently
supported is limited to only two games. Here is some information
about the Games that are currently supported.

Games Currently Supported

Title: Asphalt 8 Airborne
Support Level: Temporary, since applications that get updated
has a high chance of becoming broken again. Therefore it's hard to
determine whether or not this bug will re-occur.
Description: Resolves Black Road Textures and other texture bugs.

Title: Company of Heroes 2
Support Level: Permanent, but requires user to install the Performance
Switcher. Otherwise the Game will get block by the Profiler when user
attempts to start the game.
Description: Resolves a bug in which Users may encounter a black
screen or even a BSOD during gameplay.

Other Thoughts:
I'm also currently working on Hardware Acceleration Profile
for Switchable Graphics to as an attempt to improve Hardware
acceleration. Therefore I may need some Testers.

Note:
The Hardware Acceleration Profile only applies to Switchable
Graphics Users using Fixed Mode (Requires User Manunally
switch their GPU between high end and power saving).





Previous Anouncement
I've decided to drop Support for Windows 8 Users as developers for Metro apps seems to have moved on. Some Metro apps like Asphalt 8, Youtube apps, and others applications have two versions. (Windows 8 Uses the old version while Windows 8.1 has the latest Version). Therefore I would like to ask everyone to upgrade their Operating System to Windows 8.1 and remove and re-install all apps previously used in Windows 8.

Recommended Apps to Remove:

-All Video Applications. (Microsoft Applications can remain however,
you must make sure that all appications are updated through
Windows Store.)
-All Game Applications (Only applies if you downloaded them when using
Windows 8)



If you have experienced performance gains in a specific game when using a Performance Switcher, please post your results, state the name of the game along with the Lowest, Average and Highest FPS for each Switcher used for the game.

Upcoming Driver UPDATE ??/??/2014

NOTE:
-The Legacy Performance Switcher are used for setting up the driver
performance. Otherwise everything remains on stock settings.
Users may need to download the Latest Dx9 Switcher or the Legacy
Performance Switcher in order to make use of these settings.
-Legacy Users experiencing Directx Errors when attempting to play
BattleField 4 should try Updating BF4 to UPDATE 2.

Note:
-Resolved a bug in which a driver would be installed from Windows
Update when the Driver Update is set to enabled. (This Feature
became broken after one of the previous update)
-Re-added AMD Video Transcoding package to installation.
-Updated the Package Cleaner to cleanup some remaining entries
for the AMD Video Transcoding Package.
-Resolved a bug which caused the Alternate Installer and the Cleanup
Utility to sometimes load extremely slow.
-Updated AMD Setup as an attempt to improve load times along
with with some minor bug fixes.
------------------------------------------------------------
-Attempts to Resolve a bug in which the driver cleaner would trigger
and error message during it's Pre-Clean phase. This applies to the
yellow icon that would appear in device manager when a driver fails
to load after encountering a problem. However, in this case the driver
did continue to work but the error message stated otherwise.
-Resolved a bug in which Legacy Users may encounter white/bright
artifact when playing Wolfenstein: The New Order during the first
mission after the plane crash....
------------------------------------------------------------
-Resolved a Bug in which AMD HD Audio Clean Up was broken
-Resolved a Bug in which the driver Cleaner would sometimes
crash during cleanup.
-Resolved a Bug in which the GPU Restarter would sometimes
fail to complete it's process.
-Resolved a bug in which the Flash GPU Acceleration Switcher
would not function correctly.
-Updated the Driver Cleaner and Package Cleaner to improve
driver and software cleanup.
-Updated the Catalyst Control Center Download system.
(allows users to update CCC without having to download
a new version of the modded driver.)
-Added Application Profile Download (Allows CrossFire
and Switchable Graphics Users to download profiles to
support their devices.) Single GPU Users can also download
them but it's not as beneficial as using the Performance
Switchers in attempt to improve your in Game performance.
-Updated the Flash GPU Acceleration Switcher to support
active switching when using FireFox. (Closing FireFox is
no longer neccessary.)
-Update the Legacy Performance Switcher as an attempt to
add Support for 64Bit Applications.
This Update will not be released until I think It's ready to be release as I'm still considering other possible changes.
---------------------------------------------------------------------
-Updated the GPU Restarter to resolve a bug in which
the Windows Task-bar would get displaced after Users
log into their account again.
-Updated the driver to support Windows 8 and Window 8
Users who upgraded their system to Windows 8.1.
-Updated the Alternate Installer to resolve a bug in which
Users attempting to download CCC would sometimes get
redirected to the first menu.
-Resolved a bug in which the Alternate Installer Display
Driver was broken for x32Bit

What Are Some Games You Would
like to see the driver Optimize for?


Max Number of Games for each
Release will be limited to 1-10 Games


Currently Supported Games Not Released
Company of Heroes 2 (Resolves Driver Crash and Artifacts)

Tip For Users who Use Multiple Cleaners
When using Multiple Cleaners along with
aSimple CleanUP Utility it's recommended for
Users to Use the Cleaners in the Following Order.

1. aSimple Cleanup Utility
2. Alternate Cleaner
3. Alternate Cleaner

The reason for this is, aSimple CleanUp Utility Searches
the registry for location of files and folders to perform a thorough
clean. Thus if those registries are removed and cannot be located
many files and folders will continue to build (Taking Up Hard Drive Space)
The name of these files are automatically assigned by Windows.

Other Thoughts
Users Can also use the Default AMD Cleanup to remove the Files and folder
then perform a Cleanup by any Third Party Cleaner to get around the Bug.

Another Way Users can get rid of those Files and Folders
is by performing a Full System Cleanup Via aSimple Cleanup Utility.
However this method will Uninstall all Installed Software as attempt
resolve software related bugs due to a bad installation.

Ok.. did some general playing and lite benchmark on 10 games using this driver..!!

Result for my HD 4650:

This driver is having a bad avg fps. I mean,, the peak FPS count for games are very good and very high but .. the low's are very very low.. and so it is not giving a smooth game-play .

Massive trouble in games :

Assassins Creed III
Hitman Absolution
Prototype 2
Medal Of Honor WarFighter

rest all games had a performance degrade..

Final Word :

I liked the 12.10 modded Dellon more than this one

EDIT : Found problem with the ' atiumdva.cap '. The cap file included in this driver is from the 12.11 beta 11 Actual package right, so I'm not able to play videos. but when I replace the cap file with the one in the 12.10WHQL Original the video starts playing.. Dellon have the look at this issue .

I think AMD will release 12.10 very soon. They have to patch some security vulnerability in the software.

Ok thats good...

But it will be more good if they try to fix some bugs and try to improve a bit of performance for the DX10 part of the HD4000 series GPUs...

just a new catalyst for only a security vulnerability fix does not feels nice

A new Catalyst is coming in a few days. Let's hope it's for legacy cards too.

Default Great community of modders - THANK YOU! - 12-28-2012, 01:40 | posts: 154 | Location: Innerworld

As it was not enough that many times we have to rely on selfless actions of videogames' modders who work in most cases for free to help the others enhance their gaming experience and/or solve problems instead of the devs...

Nowadays, we need similar creative and adventurous people, who are enhancing our gaming experience on even lower level, i.e. the graphic drivers.
In other words the gigantic company which we payed (not a little) for their products made from sand and a few metals is unable to provide their customers with basic support, i.e. optimizing the drivers for new games.

So clearly, Mr. Dellon132 is more competent than the whole friggin' amd.
That is something to remember during my next card purchase.

This kind of aggressive marketing strategy: "buy a new card from us at least every 3 years or F U! and eat our lies about quarterly support" is beyond! all understanding and either amd should really quickly change its menageriement or their slippery slope to bankrupcy is willful and intentional.

I pray to you, Dellon132, for early 64bit version of your modded drivers..

And don't mind any trolling, name calling, jealous, incapable twats who will try to throw their poisonous spits on your efforts..

Unless the performance is connected to a certain bug in a certain game you shouldn't expect any performance increase whatsoever for legacy cards. They've basically squeezed as much as possible from the 4k and 5k series and are working mainly on increasing performance for the 7k series (as they get better at understanding the new GPU) and improvements for the 6k series should also show up.

Obviously there are cost-effectiveness in the equation and it's just not viable to have a separate team work on legacy card drivers not to mention the mess and trouble the current driver developers would have if they would have to cover every card from the 3k-series all the way up to the 7k-series and give each GPU equal amount of work. We'd see a driver release every 6 months at most.

The biggest difference between AMD and nVidia when it comes to legacy products is that the nvidia drivers are bloated with unchanged old legacy drivers. AMD decided to separate legacy drivers from the main kit. And really, with a 4k-card you shouldn't need any new drivers unless there's bug in a certain game, and then you must find out if it's a driver issues or a game bug, then you must create an issue report and wait for a hotfix for that particular issue if they can recreate it.

I disagree with the people who defend AMD without having a legacy card but.. my next build will be based on an AMD apu processor. Ironic, huh? The apu's gpu is strong enough to play light games.

Try this

Update (June 5th, 2012): As requested in the comments below, you can permanently enable Test Mode () by opening an Elevated Command Prompt and typing the following commands, then rebooting:

bcdedit -set loadoptions DISABLE_INTEGRITY_CHECKS
bcdedit -set TESTSIGNING ON

When you enabled Test-mode do you see a watermark on the bottom right of your desktop that shows Test Mode along with your OS Version?

Hmm... Try uninstalling and delete your current driver in device manger then scan for hardware changes and it will install another driver. After doing so, select update driver in driver software then click on "browse my computer for driver software." Next select "Let me pick from a list." Now you should see all drivers you installed for the card. Install then uninstall and delete each one. Delete all drivers except the WDDM 1.1 and the basic adapter. When you're finish restart your PC and try installing the modded drivers again.

The problem you are currently experiencing will be fix in the next update sorry
for the inconvenience. Will Release Hotfix for 64bit OS soon.
