AMD plans to issue an Adrenalin hotfix for broken DirectX 9 games

In case you weren't aware of, AMD's latest Radeon Software Adrenalin Edition introduced some crashing issues on a number of DX9 games. The bug has apparently caused some DirectX 9-based games to not work properly.

Whichever gaming API in use, one of the best gaming keyboards goes a long way. Command and Conquer 3, Command and Conquer Red Alert 3, Command and Conquer 4 Tiberian Twilight, Battle for Middle Earth 1 and 2, and The Witcher Enhanced Edition are among the DirectX 9 titles that have been reported as buggy under the new driver.

Unfortunately, to continue to play any of these titles you will have to roll back your drivers. It's not the flawless solution, but if you are only playing the occasional DX9-only title this issue is not the end of the world.

Regardless, fellow old school PC gamers who are still now playing DirectX 9 games need not worry any longer about the Radeon Software Adrenalin Edition driver problem.

All games travel down a similar road to obscurity in their lifetime, although at varying paces. Yet, all games will eventually reach the end of the road for popular support - even on PC, the backwards compatibility champion. As well as the above crashing upon startup games, the list includes; Skyrim, Tales of Berseria, Payday 2 (works, but unstable), Source engine games (unstable), and Spellforce 2.

No need to panic if you're an AMD users. While new drivers for old titles are not expected, new drivers shouldn't break things without a fix either. It would have been extremely odd if AMD had not looked into this issue. AMD may reconsider their position in due time, however. Here's hoping the Radeon driver team gets the problem worked out sooner rather than later.
