Screen Flashing? 17th January 2013

  • Hi as soon as the patch for the 17th of January finished i went into a game and my screen kept flashing.. i do not think its my computer that is doing it because i had a Zed and a Olaf in my team that were also complaining that their screens were flashing, does anyone know why this might be happening, its NEVER happened before its been doing it since the patch finished..

    Go to AMD website and update driver for your video card.
    I just updated to beta driver 12.11 and it immediately fixed the problem.
    This may have been caused by riot updating graphics but as far as myself and my friends who only run AMD.

    I personally found that updating to beta driver 12.11 fixed the screen tearing.

    I am running Radeon HD over clocked 7850 by Saphire Dual X. Windows 7 32 bit.

    Here is the link to the driver.

    I'd like to highlight this post. We're looking into the issue with the AMD 7XXX series cards. I'll do my best to update you guys and gals when I have more to share.
  • Update for you guys: This is a very high priority for us to fix. I don't have an ETA right now for when a fix will be ready.

    If everyone could start grabbing the latest drivers from AMD I would really like to know if it solves the problem. I'm especially interested in having people who previously tried the beta drivers and they did not fix the issue.

    I use a 7750. My drivers currently are version 13.1. I still get the flicker around 10 times a game so it is greatly reduced. Would like to see it stop all together tho without having to revert to beta driver.

    Thx

    Edit: A few people mentioned that 13.2 fixed the problem. I am using 13.1 and see no update for 13.2. Am I missing something or was it a typo?

    I don't have anything concrete to share. It's not a strait forward fix in the code.

    They might be referring to: http://support.amd.com/us/kbarticles...etaDriver.aspx
  • We are going to be testing a fix to resolve screen flickering issues. It has the potential to affect multiple aspects of the game so we're going to need to spend a decent amount of time affirming that the fix didn't incidentally break anything else.
  • Hey guys, we've been talking with AMD. We believe the 13.4 drivers for the 7XXX series cards should resolve the issue. You can find the drivers by going to this webpage and then selecting the proper video card series and operating system.

    If anyone experiences the flickering with the 13.4 drivers, please post here with dxdiags.
