    AMD compatibility?

    I noticed a "Run in AMD compatibility mode" option in the launcher. So it says don't use if you don't know what you're doing and since I use an AMD processor curiosity got the better of me, turned it on only to find it does absolutely nothing. At least not something I can notice.

    Anyone has some info on this?

    I don't know about the rest of you, but I can't view the above-linked thread. I am curious about the AMD compatibility though because I use AMD processors and video cards in my current system. I've already had random crashes due to multicore processing issues with Unity, and I have no idea if those have been fixed yet.

    Funny I searched and found this exact thread yesterday, I too was searching for what it does exactly. I Use and AMD GPU and had no clue what enabling that option does exactly. I run with it enabled and have not noticed any side effects yet, but also no noticeable increase in performance.

    Check out the Known Issues / Self Help thread. Open the General Issues spoiler, and you will find:

    • Add the following line to the target box of a shortcut after KSP.exe: "-force-gfx-st" (without the quotes)
    • Disable it in the Bios / UEFI
    The option in the launcher adds that command line option (-force-gfx-st).

    Now that the question is answered, I'm sending this thread back to its peaceful rest.
