So after getting Mantle to run great last night, tried today and BF failed to load 5 times in a row with the "BF has stopped working"

I removed the frame rate limiter from my user config and Mantle/BF4 started working again, this it the same problem my cousin was having last night but this has only started today with me.

 

Mental Mantle :wth: it's just so fickle, but when it works right, it's awesome.

Me neither - but Mandtle does eat up CPU cycles so if i am alt tabbed, normal windows performance is stuttery. But once i get back into the game its butter smooth. Mantle so far is pretty awesome for me.

Go to My Documents>Battlefield 4>settings and open PROFSAVE_profile with WordPad and edit the line

GstRender.MantleEnabled 0   (1 is true, 0 is false)




Now you can stay on the new Driver and test Mantle in your own time, and if you get stuck, then manually change it back to load DX11 by default.

i'll switch back to the hdd where i applied mantle and try this. +rep.

Don't change settings or go alt tab once you start, and you will have brilliant experience! thumb.gif

I have no problems with alt tab either.
While running the 14.2 beta in mantle mode I am getting a large increase in vram usage. From typically 1700-1800 in DX11 it goes up to 2600-2700 with mantle with same video settings. Also with mantle enabled BF4 does not run very well. I am regularly getting very large fps drops even at times when not that much is happening. Also the screen still seems to be brighter (higher contrast or something) but it is not as bad as the 14.1 drivers. I will say that the 14.2 betas in DX11 mode are running much much better than the previous betas.

please explain how is possible that you have 7 job threads if mine is 4... even in multigpu and 64 players map

Make a user config and add the line

 

Thread.MaxProcessorCount #   (# = 1~12 or what ever cores you want to use)

 

But if I add this line, BF4 Mantle runs like crap, even if it's set to 4, which seems to be the default. I just have to let it do its own thing and Mantle runs fine.

thank you wink.gif tried that...it goes to max 6 job threads (D3D and Mantle both)
the result is that w/ D3D 11.1 my setup is really fast and smooth at 1080p... no MSAA and ultra textures even 100-130 fps, MSAA 4x even really good... no bad spikes which ruin the experience, range 60+ - 100 fps...
w/ Mantle (but textures high and MSAA off because of the vram issue) multigpu suffers a lot now and fps is lower than D3D and also unstable, with many abnormal fps drops... that is, if Mantle becomes smooth is welcome for sure...but i don't really need it now
hope AMD does an increasingly better job with Mantle... keep up the good work AMD thumb.gif
