avoid buying AMD 5000 series gpu has issues with bf1942

Postby E-3 » Wed Mar 11, 2020 11:49 pm

For people buying a new computer last november 2019 came the first report that the new amd rx 5700 is having issues with battlefield 1942 having no crosshair visible. Please see link.

About a few weeks later I noticed somebody having similar issues on reddit please see link.

then this year on discord I noticed another person having the same issues, then I got told that another person is having the same issues on Battlefield Vietnam which is not surprising because the Battlefield Vietnam uses exactly the same engine as battlefield 1942.

I have very little hope AMD is going to fix this driver issue on such a old game, therefore I have no other option then to do damage control and warn every Battlefield 1942 community about this issue.

I attempted to get a popular topic on the amd subreddit I've been unsuccessful so far
in order to get popular I needed upvotes see this.
https://www.reddit.com/r/Amd/comments/ffge2m/rx_5000_series_owners_can_you_confirm_that/

However if AMD decides to fix the issue I will remove reports from every community forum I posted this on.
only the future will tell what will happen.

edit I am myself on rx580 I can run any driver from the latest or early versions and I have no problems with battlefield 1942.
The rx 5700 is having issues from the beginning there for no other option but to force amd to fix it.
