    No, it is not a known bug so no fix for it is planned. Try to upgrade to the latest 2.2.0 beta and updated DirectX runtimes to the latest version.

    "Properties" command in the context menu takes you to the properties of the graph you're right clicking. So it is supposed to be that way, no graph - nowhere to go.

    Boosted Afterburner startup time a bit more due to optimized GPU context switching in profile load routine. Now it starts in less than 1 second opposing to 4-5 seconds in beta 7 on my 580gtx+9600gt system and I guess it is the limit for current Afterburner architecture.

    Thanks for you help Unwinder :D

    After doing what you said the screen capture works fine, but now I get the same problem with video capture.

    BUG HD 5870 Cold Boot Freeze

    I ve got a Problem with the 2.2 Beta 7, that on every cold boot of my pc, it will freeze after a short time. After the Second Boot everything works without problems.
    Using now 2.1 and it also works.
    It is maybe a problem with the memory in use function.

    Regards,
    Darkennight

    nothingless: Try an older driver. My HD 2600 does that if I use anything newer than 10.5. If you want to confirm that is the problem, check out GPU-Z. If that too shows 0/0, that is exactly the problem.

    Same complain again, but this time with a picture.
    I mean seriously, I want to check my temperature "history" or fan speed or other stuff, MUCH more often than to go in to options!

    So why the one icon that is intended to be on sight most of the time does not link you there!! Where is the common sense, how many times do people go in to options that they needed to save one more click from main window?

    Also please, can you merge two icons in to one when temp show temp in tray is enabled? I doubt you find people complaining.

    Holy fu*ck? Where is the common sense?! And cloning the same "question" in multiple threads? Act this way in your home please and try to talk this way to your parents. Bye.

    Downloaded latest beta to test videomemory usage of my cards in games as GPU-Z 0.5.5 and Process Explorer 15.05 don't work properly on Vista.

    I have 5870 1GB Crossfire so it's not using any ADL functions which are not present in the drivers but the "hole" implemention as Unwinder described (I'm using 11.9 WHQL) to calculate the videomemory usage. I understand that only one GPU videomemory is calculated (Crossfire uses effectively 1GB) and MSI Afterburner gives option for one GPU which makes sense.

    My problem is that the numbers I get seem to be double the real usage of a single card. Is this by design in crossfire?

    To explain:

    1. In games like dirt 2 1680x1050 8AA max settings it reports 1400-1500MB, which is not the case for 1 card with 1GB and as I researched from other guys screenshots with NVIDIA cards it uses about 700-800MB for that kind of settings which is close to the half of the memory usage i get.

    2. In games like crysis wars and Battlefield 3 Beta which are way more videomemory intense I got numbers well above 2000MB at about 2300-2500MB

    Others report with same graphics settings about 1000MB usage (with NVIDIA). If the usage for one card was 2400MB the game would be a slideshow which isn't running at about 60-80fps

    Thanks

    PS: I wrote all that because i wanna know how to properly use the videomemory data. Right now i guess it calculates both cards memory because the offset from one card doesn't seem to be a fixed number.

    Yes, each GPU in Crossfire config is adding the same input into videomemory usage. So for 2x Crossfire it will be doubled.

    Try to add it to OSD server's exceptions list.

    You did absolutely nothing with this profile. Once again, add it to _exceptions_ list, i.e. disable this application detection, rather than just clone defaults for it.

    If I turn off detection level the game starts, but I lose the Osd into the game :(
