    Using 1040 base with 15.15 dll's in win 8.1 with my 290's clocked at 390x speeds I'm only 100 points under in Firestrike Ultra UHD :D

    still testing games. W3 seems to run very well at 4k so far. WOOOO!

    1040 doesnt work with my The Witcher 3.
    Trix r9 290
    15.5 beta
    win 8.1 most updated.
    i use atidxx64.dll

    game just doesnt start, screen goes black and instantly closes tw3.exe
    got none of the programs mentioned on first post that may interrupt this file.



    Edit:
    Strange enough game does run with atidxx32.dll, altho my windows is obviously 64 bit and i put the atidxx64.dll in my x64 folder in TW3 directory.

    what could cause this? and btw no improvement at all, at least with atidxx32.dll.

    It doesn't "work" with atidxx32.dll. It loads fine because the game is not even asking for it and you then proceed to play with the installed 15.5. If you don't mind me asking, is there a specific reason you are using the 15.5 betas? Also, just to be sure, put all the four files in the game's bin folder.

    Well because 15.5 beta is the driver that is optimized for tw3.... so thats why :p

    By putting dll from other drivers in the game, you basically negate the installed driver. That's the whole point. If it's only for that, just install 1040. It already contains the Witcher optimizations.

    PRMinisterGR, with the help of Wagnard, or some other programmer, won't it be handy to have a tool like AMD driver injector? A tool that will automate the process of injecting and removing specific version of driver .dlls from the directory of the game of your choice? The tool can be made to work something like this: It will have four separate folders for four different APIs, like a folder for DirectX 9, a folder for DirectX 10~11, a folder for OpenGL and a folder for mantle, which it will use as a library. Within the Library, each subfolder name will represent the driver version, so that it'll be as easy as just to extract your repository to the respective folders. For further identification of driver files, a CRC32/MD5 hash check can be implemented so that it'll be possible to tell which version of driver is currently being injected to the desired game. And of course, the application must have the ability to inject the desired version of the driver to the location of the binary of the game title of your liking, and have the option to remove them as well. Is this a bad idea?

    1040 will be a better overall driver. I'd wait for the dll's to be posted by Pr and just use them for the game only.

    Thanks, that's exactly why I asked. 1040 has been so awesome I didn't want to switch if not needed :D I'll try to wait... but the game unlocks for me in just over 2.5hours :banana:

    Sorry for the delays guys, I had a power problem in the building. I'm downloading the 15.6 drivers now, and the DLL will be up as fast as possible.

    I'm currently using the dxx64.dll from 15.6 on my 1040 drivers for batman. Works great! :D

    I would recommend the dll from the 15.15-Arkham.Knight set. It has the optimizations and it is from the decent driver set.

    Having an online repository with files that AMD gives for completely free, is very different legally from distributing those files with other software. A simple copy paste is all that is required anyways.

    Start by trying the 14.12 DLL, and then go as back as you dare without the game hanging. The original Catalyst hotfix for this game was 10.10c, but it's way to old even for me to upload, and it wouldn't work 99.9%.
