I was on V07. Pixio sent me in an e-mail V06
, fixed the saturation toggle from enabling "Response Time" too. Okay so here is what I did, I just discovered a fix by complete accident
So I installed the newest AMD drivers; non-whql-win10-64bit-radeon-software-crimson-16.11.5-nov25
. Then I factory reset my monitor then installed the downgraded firmware and then factory reset again. I then loaded up CRU and performed the "V-Rate" fix for the monitor's freesync range (55-144).
FreeSync is, for now, working again but only in specific games. I went around testing some games and discovered the following:Works in:
Counter-Strike: Global Offensive
Left 4 Dead 1Does Not Work In:
Left 4 Dead 2
No More Room In Hell
What do all the games that it doesn't work have in common? They're all modifications of the same engine...! Left 4 Dead 1 is a much older version of source engine, where Contagion and Left4Dead 2 are near carbon copies even down to bugs in the menu settings. No More Room In Hell probably is a variation of the Left4Dead 2 engine as well, but can't confirm. I then discovered a fix by complete accident so now I'm even more confused
and wish someone with more knowledge could chime on on this with me.
After every failed launch where it looks something like this
, I have to press tilde(~)
and type quit
into console. The monitor then refuses to show anything but a black screen which requires me to have to press the POWER
button. However, out of sheer frustration and accident I by mistake press the Adjust Aspect Ratio
button. This immediately brought my monitor back to life without me having to turn it off. I then launched Left4Dead 2 and once I went into fullscreen it did it's usual thing
, however this time i pressed the aspect ratio key and it immediately fixed the problem.
So... now I'm confused. Refreshing the monitor fixes the glitching, it doesn't matter what aspect ratio button I press but it's just dandy after that.
