Game is now starts with AMD using driver 20.1.3
Game now starts with driver 20.1.3

From driver notes

General driver issue unrelated to game

Some Radeon RX 5700 series graphics users may intermittently experience a black screen while gaming or on desktop. A potential temporary workaround is disabling hardware acceleration in applications running in the background such as web browsers or Discord.

This has happened to me a couple of times with my 5700XT while running YouTube and playing a game at the same time.

Imagine the mods pinning this, since this question is asked constantly :praisesun:

Yep thought I would pop it up rather than just complaining about it :2016whoadude:

Problem still exist with drivers 19.12.2 and 19.12.3 too. Shame.

Yep not a fan of the new drivers, At least with 19.12.1 it runs so more of a pain in the neck than anything else

I love you, dear God I love you. I've been trying for the past 4 hours straight, researching, downloading drivers, codexs, uninstalling, reinstalling, everything, and I was about to EXPLODE, and then I found this post AND IT FREAKING WORKED. I just had to go back to the driver you mentioned and NOW I CAN FINALLY PLAY. THANK YOU ODDBALLS!!!!!

lets be clear since this title is deceptive. this is not a "fix" it is a work around by using old driver version(s) that I would think most users already knew worked. basic trouble shooting here

Game works on driver 19.12.1 (and previous versions)
Update to 19.12.2
Game no longer launches
Kinda narrows down the issues given the one and only change to the system is driver version


Some people need to use the newest drivers to play other games that don't work on older drivers for example. Having to install different drivers, going back and forth installing them, to play different games is not a work around most would find acceptable.

I have submitted a report to AMD. I suggest everyone else reading this post and experiencing this issue to do the same. The RX 5700 series have had other issues like this....some download content in Assassins Creed Odyssey doesn't work either for example, exclusive issue to the RX 5700 series. so far not sure if this is just an AMD driver thing or if specific to certain AMD GPUs. seen at least one RX 580 and RX 570 user say they have this crash at startup and even two Nvidia GPU users (1060 I believe) say they have this crash at startup issue

Lol How is this deceptive it tells people how to get this specific game working with older drivers, And if you actually had any idea on the subject you are trying to comment on you would know that the new drivers are a total mess and not advisable for anyone to install, And how many games do you think these new drivers have added support for since Dec 2nd, Or did you not bother to read the driver notes? It is the current drivers across many AMD cards not just the 5700XT that is causing the problem, And it gives people the info they need to plays this specific game at the current moment in time. I own a 570, 580 and a 5700XT they all do it on the new drivers and Nvidia was never even mentioned in the title as I don't have one to test. And I haven't had any issues with the RX5700XT apart from stuttering in early drivers I can't speak for AC Origins because Ubisoft games are garbage and have some of the worst optimisation of any games and very boring so I don't test them, And what about the people who want to play the game now but can't because the only time they can play is in the holidays and don't wan't to wait months for the fix, The first thing people do is report it, But hey thank you for the bump.

I thought this was obvious but a genuine fix is making the latest drivers work. right? a "fix" doesn't mean a company would suggest something like this

"hey we fixed this issue.....by telling you to use old driver versions because the new ones are broke and we can't fix the new ones"
lol there is no sense in that! The developers and/or GPU/driver manufacturers need to be held accountable for basic compatibility

you took my post far too personal. quite a defensive response lol! (what else should I expect from the interwebz though right?) I wanted to make a point this isn't a long term fix. you will not have a good time being stuck on old drivers if you play newer games. this is a band-aid to get by in a pinch basically.

BTW 19.12.3 drivers working well ;)
(not for Nioh obviously, but everything else I play, they work well!)

New games added, Halo MCC is huge. So someone who wants to play that and Nioh on the same new driver will be having a bad time right now. This is an example, not some end all blanket statement that fits everyone's needs and uses. If you don't need to be on the new drivers, then by all means, stay on old ones

Also what mess(es) are you talking about? Please provide links to established messes that are still happening? I did think 19.12.1 was poor, I got some crashes on that but by the time I updated to 19.12.3 it seems to be as stable as any previous version that was running everything I had in my game library just fine

Lol what are you on about?

"scottjtighe BTW 19.12.3 drivers working well ;)
(not for Nioh obviously, but everything else I play, they work well!)"

So what you are saying is if you wan't to play Nioh don't use 19.12.3! the whole point of the original post, hahahahahahaha!

"BTW" nobody cares how the games you run on your system function, The reason they are here is to get Nioh working on their systems. Its why the post is in the Nioh section, everybody knows its a temp fix just to get Nioh working for now. And nobody came here for Halo or anything else.

As for Issues they have a whole section on it in the release notes under "Known Issues" along with all the games they added support for, And Halo runs on 19.12.1 Dec 2nd driver I play it myself.

But again thanks for the Laugh and the bump, And have a happy New Year
