Avoid buying AMD 5000 series gpu because of issues with bf1942

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.
http://team-simple.org/forum/viewtopic.php?id=7614

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.

and this

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.

...

But then it's only a Driver issue.


You could try once deinstalling your AMD GPU Drivers with DDU and after you install the newest directly downloaded from AMD.

(If it works after, ... good / if not try a previous driver from before your actual one and if even this won't help, then you have to wait for a fix or surround by some settings.

I am myself on the rx580 I can run any driver the latest or early versions  and I have no problems with battlefield 1942. 

the rx 5700  is having issues from the  beginning  so no driver fix there for no other option but to force amd to fix it.
