    Runs fine on Android too. The only thing I wonder about is I can't use it with LTE network data, connection timeout all the time. Only WiFi works. :( This is the only app with that problem. Maybe there is a restriction to local network only?

    @warlord Well, this needs to work in the same network, so using network LTE is a different network than what you're using in your PC.

    For OCD reasons... what is responsible for creating c:\AMD with atikmdag_dce.log on every boot? If I delete this folder, on the next boot it's back. Nothing interesting is inside the log, just says "*** Log File Version: 1.0 ***" and that's it.
    I'm pretty sure this is new with Adrenalin, never had this (mis)behavior before. If something needs to make log, there is temp folder inside Windows (it's in HKLM, not user), no need to crap in root.

    I ended up making the folder hidden and making the text document read only so it can't write to it.

    *edit*

    I just checked inside the folder and the text document was gone.... wtf?

    Drivers seems to stabilized OC in older cards.

    It's not AMD's fault, happens since Windows 10 v1709 was released on any driver. GPU-Z can also randomly freeze the computer at startup.

    I have had zero issues so far with this driver. Every feature available and works right out of the box(RX 480@580). Even AMD link :D

    Anyone have any Diablo3 tips? I can't make it work without stutter with any driver. Not a major issue, it plays well but not perfect like other games.
    Good driver this one overall.

    Never experienced stutter in Diablo III since day 1 and 7800HD series. Now especially is butter smooth with my system and currect drivers. Something is fishy with your system in overall :) Check your settings.

    Don't forget to test your internet speed and settings. Perhaps stutter due to bad connection?

    D3 is very CPU bottlenecked and overall has a terrible engine. People playing in groups always have fps drops even with most powerful CPUs when there's a lot of stuff happening on the screen. The latest patch also introduced random game hangs for quite a few people, and a bunch of other crap that was hotfixed recently.
    Considering you have a FX 9590... well, try putting Physics to Low, completely disable shadows, the sound (in-game) and set HardwareClass to 1 in D3Prefs.txt.

    Drivers have nothing to do here. AFAIK, the last long-standing issue GCN cars had with D3 was fixed almost a year ago.

    Sigh, I don't even think the AMD Link app will try to connect unless your on wifi because fowarding port 58888 still does nothing v.v

    This driver... (switched from 2017 January one)
    Afterburner (4.4.2) clocks control do not work anymore, voltage does, but thanks to one of Onna's posts in this thread I discovered OverdriveNTool.

    OSD, alt+r, doesn't work too well, flashes like crazy in warcraft 3 (directx 9) but it allows changing some settings in-game which is a good addition.
    The other two hotkeys, something+O, something+L, they directly don't work in warcraft 3 and "radeon settings" crashes... they work in GTA5. Overall the OSD is worse than RTSS.

    Wattman, "allow me to let you change the clocks... but not really" I find it really amusing that at the end of the day it boils down to the graphic card staying most of the time on the max power state, even when only watching a video, so the different phases do not matter anyway. At least with OverdriveNTool I can switch profiles fast.

    Changing GPU Workload kills the driver HARD, one of my two monitors goes off and radeon settings complains that driver doesn't work and asks me to install a driver, a reboot solves the issue.

    But yeah every half year Afterburner compatibility thrown away to the trash... if at least the "new" features could compete against an old functionality of afterburner...

    Meh.. if you want a bit less under the carpet solution... What I did is to change DalDCELogFilePath value in registry to my Windows\Temp path. Unfortunately AMD didn't use reg_expand_sz, so you can't use variables in case your %windir% isn't on C, you must use full path. In my case it now reads C:\Windows\Temp\AMD\atikmdag_dce.log and it works, just needs 2 reboots - in first reboot it still creates empty AMD folder in root. The small problem now is that Disk Cleanup doesn't pickup this junk in Windows\Temp coz it's always less than 7 days old and if you feel really anal about it you'd need to do it manually.
    I'm curious if this was reported to AMD, though seeing how they did nothing for now a year re tasks Author being set to some workgroup computer inside AMD, I'm not going to hold my breath.

    I ended up changing the folder security permissions so it cannot read or write to it at all... and made the folder hidden.
