    Just hard my 3rd PC lockup simply because I'm enabling or disabling crossfire, bloody annoying, going back to the previous drivers to see if it stops.

    It's not that.
    I know what is the WHQL :)
    And I always update to the "beta" drivers of AMD, which is essentially the same thing as the WHQL without being signed of Microsoft.
    But the Topic name claims that it is WHQL, when it's not.
    For me it's fine, I just wanted to point that out.
    Cheers

    My bad then, since on the website says it was optional, I didn't even thought it would be WHQL :D
    Dispite, like I said, for me WHQL or non-WHQL means nothing.
    Thanks a lot and sorry for the confusion

    I did a bit of non-scientific testing on profiles not saved problem.

    The behavior is strange. If I do normal shutdown (using Windows GUI or doing Alt+F4 on desktop or WinKey+X way- does not matter) then my changes to profile are preserved (hibernate obviously also works). If I do anything else - normal reboot, or even shutdown or reboot using CLI - shutdown /t 0 /s (or r) then my changes to profile are back to defaults. It matters not if I end RadeonSettings.exe process or not between reboots. The only parameters I'm changing in my test are set chill to enable and its fps setting. Seeing how parameters are changing back to 70-144 made me think that rather than settings not being saved, the global defaults are loaded, overwriting custom settings - same as it happens with Wattman for example when it crashes. The defaults for Chill are stored in HKLM\SOFTWARE\AMD\Chill. If I change defaults in this location then game profile also gets overwritten with modified defaults. The other interesting thing is - starting AMD Radeon Settings does not change timestamp on gmdb.blb, but clicking on Games does. Timestamp on that file gets updated again when I close Radeon Settings or click away from Games.

    Would someone with working games profiles (profiles that survive shutting down Windows 10 with shutdown /t 0 /s command) export HKLM\SOFTWARE\AMD\Chill be kind and post its contents here?

    ...and I'd appreciate to be schooled on Chill fps settings. What I know: minimum is 30 and maximum is 300. The defaults are 70 to 144. While I hope I understand default minimum, maximum makes no sense. My understanding is that minimum is what one is comfortable with in particular game and where Chill supposed to kick in if game fps go above (is this immediately or depending on rate / percentage?). The maximum however I do not understand. I do not see logic in stopping Chill if fps are above 144. I'd think Chill would need to be more aggressive after that. Is this what max is? Also, how VSync on/off and FreeSync display range supposed to affect how one would choose the range for Chill?

    In my case, Radeon Settings regularly crashing when disabling Crossfire, but fortunately, it doesn't lockup my system, or at least it hasn't, yet. Usually I just reopen Radeon Settings and redo the process and it goes through the second time.

    Anyone have problems with ReLive with this driver? All my recordings have stuttering audio, but not while I'm recording. Tried lots of different things to fix it, but just ended up going back to Adrenalin 17.12.2 and it records fine.

    Pre 18.1.1 I didn't have these hard locks simply for enabling/disabling crossfire, reverted just the graphics driver not radeon settings or whatever and so far so good.

    1/2, 1/3, 1/4 Dynamic Vsync isn't even an option. Meanwhile NVIDIA has it since the asteroid hit the dinosaurs.

    Five out of the ten "options" are just Overlay/RadeonLink bullcrap. Meanwhile we have no enforceable Vsync and the sh*tiest OpenGL in the business.

    Would be fun to see the less popular voted for options (Or just the full list.) but I guess for a open poll the more tech oriented features would be closer to the bottom of the full list although generic and more broadly sweeping feature requests (IE "Un[bleep] the OpenGL driver!") could certainly see a surge though with 18.1.1 building on ReLive and OSD functionality I am not surprised to see features related to those dominate the list although some other options managed to get through to the top also. :)

    (And well the OGL driver has improved to be fair but it can't compete in terms of performance and that kinda hinders AMD when it comes to games using that API and software such as anything from work programs to emulators and Linux and Mac systems as well.)

    EDIT: Well OpenGL 4.x at least although I don't know how fully 4.5 and the upcoming 4.6 version is supported but for older API versions of OpenGL it might still be a bit of a mess of driver compatibility works or outright hacks.
    (Though that probably goes for several D3D titles too for that matter, some games just don't behave ha ha.)

    Cap, you're back!

    I wholeheartedly agree, but the problem with this part of the forums is that whenever you bring up the obvious flaws in AMD's drivers, you're touted as a Fanboy or told that you don't deserve a fix because you use an old GPU and a whole bunch of AMD fanboys flag your posts to moderators as off topic "crap."

    I have stopped bothering.

    Same for me, i have an annoying "beep" every sec. Return to 17.12.2 and problem solved.

    Looks like there's one known issue with Instant Replay causing stuttering in games with these drivers.

    Yup, we need better OGL for sure.
    DX12/Vulcan adoption is goin' sloooow....
    But we have great DX9/11 performance + Awesome DX12/Vulcan ! :p
    And we have Tweaks ;)

    OnnA, could you explain what the DX9 tweaks do in RadeonMod? Or is this the wrong place to ask about them?

    Yup, go there and ask...

    AFAIK DX9/10 etc. Tweaks in Our Reg.MOD working for some, and don't for others.
    I have some Tweaks ON all the time by my *.reg file :D

    Thanks OnnA. Nothing too obvious in your registry to jump to conclusion. Chill is globally off in your setup - do you overwrite this in games profiles or start Chill manually?
