Title: Crt emudrivers adrenalin update needed
Post by: xbrunox on January 07, 2020, 04:59:05 pm
Hi Calamity,
I've a small request... Not so small really...
Pls can U release a New version of Crt emudrivers
Based on adrenalin 19.12.2 or later Pls...
Unfortunaly previous adrenalin version have very big problems with supermodel emulator (Ian the authors has speak with AMD drivers team too) and the older Crimson version Unfortunaly don't support vulkan that Unfortunaly is necessary for the latest Cxbx version..

From what I understand it is a tremendous amount of work to update these driver sets which is why it doesn't happen often.  I would be willing to contribute towards funding Calamity's time for a new update as well just to get better vulkan support.

As said it's a lot of work. I'd like to release a version per year at least. I'm currently working on an update of Switchres which has been postponed for too long. I won't be able to focus on CRT Emudriver for some months.

It's a shame about AMD drivers.

What I've done is downloaded the exact driver that is patched, for instance for my R7 250 I use the 18.5.1 driver and install that first. Then I install the CRT EmuDriver afterwards. I know have Vulkan usuable as well as the features from CRT EMudriver like VMM functional.

Interesting, do you mind helping me with a r380x?  Are you saying download an official adrenaline set that works with my card, install the package and then emudriver on top?  I'll give it a shot if that's all that is to it.

Whats the issue with supermodel emulator?
Just out of curiosity. In my setup sega rally 2 has some graphic flaws but always thought its an emulator issue, not a drivers issue.
Could anyone elaborate a bit please?
Thank you

Supermodel works very slow on the adrenalin drivers, on win7 x64, unless you use the legacy engine. Not sure about win10 compatibility.

I have similar problem with cemu, in my case testing 1.7.2b version with major vulkan improvements.

The vulkan driver 18.5.1 outdated makes visual glitches. I find this workaround with perfect results now.

 1-Download latest drivers
 2-Expand vulkan files, in my case: amdvlk32.dl_, amdvlk64.dl_, vulkan32.dl_, vulkan64.dl_, vulkaninfo32.ex_, vulkaninfo64.ex_
 3-Replacing files of system32 and syswow64.
     3.1) amdvlk32.dll and amdvlk64.dll
     3.2) amd-vulkan32.json, amd-vulkan64.json
     3.3) renaming vulkan32.dll to vulkan-1.dll, vulkan64.dll to vulkan-1.dll, vulkaninfo64.exe vulkaninfo.exe

I don't know if this method is avaible with opengl... :dunno

Hi! I do the same method for OpenGL. In my case i don't notice better performance in supermodel emulator, maybe my GPU isn't so good (ATI 7750).
 
Yuhuuu i tested rev729 and its 60fps perfect! Maybe latest wip it's the problem  ::)  (*)

These files for replace on system32 and syswow64:
atig6pxx.dll
atig6txx.dll
atiglpxx.dll
atio6axx.dll

(*) Seems superior wip revisions from 729 lose performance...at least with my gpu.
