Avoid buying AMD 5000 series gpu because of issues with Battlefield 1942.

Post by mortarman » March 11th, 2020, 4:13 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.

https://www.reddit.com/r/classicbattlef ... indows_10/

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.
see screenshot.

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.

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.

Can't you just paint one on your screen with some duct tape or a sharpie?

And just stay stationary and snipe when somebody runs by it. Brilliant!

Nah HRD. You don't need a software crosshair anyways. Crosshair always stays in the same place.

You do, however, need to remove and re-apply the duct tape in between each shot, to compensate for kick-back, yknow?

Using tape is the easy way - do what I do and use a sharpy and sandpaper!
