avoid buying AMD 5000 series gpu has 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.

About a few weeks later I noticed somebody having similar issues on reddit please see link.


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.

edit I am myself on rx580 I can run any driver from the latest or early versions and I have no problems with battlefield 1942.
The rx 5700 is having issues from the beginning there for no other option but to force amd to fix it.

Many thanks for the info, as I will be building a new PC soon

(A quick fix for your problem is to put a bit of tack onto the middle of your screen, this also allows you to see the centre of your screen if you have zoomed out in sniper class, or if you are Anti-Aircraft gunner on the battleships, or if you play the game with hud0 enabled)

I have recently bought my new computer with RX5700 installed, and after noticing how *great* support AMD drivers have for old games, I did some research n' finally found a solution.

Basically installing this patch (originally intended for the BF42 HD Remaster) fixes the crosshair and broken HUD, also adds some nice ambient lighting and bloom effects (although they can be turned off).

The game might take a bit more to load up maps or switch to menus, but that's no harm overall.
