I hereby give my permissions
You can modify it for whatever you want
EDIT2: A temporary workaround can be found here. Keep in mind that the AMD Catalyst Un-install Utility currently supports Windows 7 only and should not be used with windows 8.
using this method works for me,running 13.3 Beta :banana: Thanks
That's great, sakulthefirst.
I will add the translated file as an alternative, but I am going to leave the guide as is until the utility becomes functional with newer drivers.
Which brings up the question on many people's minds.
Will you be releasing an updated utility?
For anyone having issues with trying to Downscale with CRU (Custom Resolution Utility), just noticed these notes from the author:
So, if you manage to do any kind of downscaling with that utility, you're either really lucky, or your screen is just capable of using higher resolutions than advertised.
This seems to be alternative for CRU http://www.tomshardware.co.uk/forum/322663-33-radeon-custom-resolution-manager
Going to give it a try, thanks.
I can't get it to work, seemed simple enough to use :/
Following the link, it appears it is working for some people, but they are adding resolution below their native resolutions, or so it appears to me.
Not made for downsampling purposes.
Is it possible to add a 21:9 resolution like 2720x1166 or 2560x1080?
I tried it before but it upscaled the image back to 16:9. But only after i updated my driver back to 13.3. It was fine with 12.11.
changing VDisplay to 822 didn't help either.
No because I did post this as an alternative for CRU, which according to above posting, is also not made for downsampling. But this tool is much user-friendly
I was able to get the CRU working just fine for me, I am not sure what your problems are. Although, my brother has the same model laptop as me except a newer version with Windows 8, and his has had problems running it there. Might be a coincidence but you never know. Best of luck!
Yes, it's a neat utility, but this thread is about and for downsampling, and CRU hasn't worked for most people either so an alternative to that is less than ideal for downsampling.
can someone tell me how to lower the pixel clock with the GUI tool
Maybe, kinda something like this ---
Hello! i am new here at the Downsampling area!
So i have some Questions!
I have a laptop whit Mobility Radeon 8500
And can i Use Downsampling whit my built in display or do i need a Other monitor to use downsamp?
Whenever I open Downsampling GUI, I get a cmd box saying: "ADL_Display_ModeTimingOverride failed! Press Enter to Continue..."
When I press enter, it starts the program, but I can't get it to do anything, it just keeps giving me that same message. I've tried several versions of the graphics driver, along with a new Windows 7 installation, but to no avail.
I'm using an Alienware m17x R3 that has switchable graphics. Would this have anything to do with it?
the current downsampling gui doesn't work with any 13.x drivers.
in order to get the resolution you want, you'll have to revert to 12.x drivers
(i have the 12.11 install on my hdd just for this), use the GUI to get your
resolution, then install a 13.x driver on-top of your 12.x
My drivers are v.8.851.2. I have tried many versions between this and 13.x, but the outcome is always the same...
Lowering the pixel clock isn't probably something you do directly; might have to lower other stuff (such as resolution or refresh rate). I could be wrong though.
Switchable Notebook Graphics do not work.
do you have Java installed?
Yes I do.
