AMD has released the Radeon Software Crimson ReLive Edition 17.3.1. With this latest graphics driver package there is support for Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Wildlands. Another driver highlight will appeal to Radeon RX 480 owners, with AMD claiming performance uplifts of up to 6 per cent for owners of these graphics cards.

Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Wildlands was released by Ubisoft today. The game pits you as a 'ghost' in an elite US Special Forces Team, sent behind enemy lines to cause chaos and break up the alliance between a crime cartel and corrupt government. This co-op game is set in some expansive South American 'wildlands'. Many reviews are still in progress but the game has already garnered 'very positive' (82 per cent) user reviews on Steam.

In Ghost Recon Wildlands, AMD users can now also benefit from using multi-GPU setups (DX11). Incidentally, on Friday Nvidia devoted a blog post to GameWorks effects in Ghost Recon Wildlands and published a 4K 60fps video of the game in action. It’s a current free game with select GeForce GTX 1070, GeForce GTX 1080 and GeForce GTX 1080 Ti GPUs, systems and laptops.

Elsewhere in the new AMD driver there are quite a collection of fixed issues. In gaming there are some fixes for Battlefield 1, For Honor, CS:GO, and DOTA 2 wrinkles. In general there are fixes affecting Radeon Settings installs, mouse cursor corruption, WattMan settings, Borderless Fullscreen mode, and AMD FreeSync.

Unfortunately various known issues remain including a couple for the newly supported Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Wildlands (both are multi-GPU quirks). Sniper Elite 4 also has a couple of known issues; FreeSync isn't playing nicely with the game on some systems, and supersampling can cause image cropping in the game.

For the full rundown of fixed and known issues and direct links to the driver files head on over to the Release Notes. Driver downloads are approx half way down that page. There's no Windows 8.1 32-bit​ version, for the reasons recently reported.

The ReLive control panel still doesn't display when I summon it with either default or custom hotkeys, using Instant Replay enabled and record desktop… Why isn't this in the damn known bugs list? I was definitely not the only one with this issue. Huff.

Have you reported it to them? Known bugs are usually ones they can replicate.

Works for me without any issues. I use ALT +F1 to bring the tab up but I've setup:-

Ctrl+Shift+R - Record
Ctrl+Shift+I - 30s Replay
Ctrl+Shift+S - Screenshot

I'll screenshot my setup when I get home.

I didn't, for a multitude of reasons that pretty much boil down to lack of immediate requirement of ReLive and apathy/laziness…

I might consider it if they still haven't received any reports on this though.

Perhaps I should mention that the app does work, and I can get to see the control panel when I'm on my desktop. The moment any kind of full screen app is launched, borderless or not, it refuses to display. On top of this, every single Instant Replay I tell it to save comes out as something similar to a 262 byte file I can't do anything with. I don't think it's the hotkeys themselves which are the issue.

Edit: could it be that the Instant Replay files at 262 bytes are just placeholders for the real thing? Did consider at the time if perhaps it was the same bug and Instant Replay wasn't receiving my hotkey inputs in-game, thus only spitting out 262 byte files, but surely if it places one every time I use the hotkey (with correct timestamp) then it must be receiving the input? Just not saving anything. :confused:
What is your hotkey input?
