So running Crossfire for the first time in a couple of years I am unaware of AMD CAP and benefits, how to use etc I have installed the latest download from AMD though nothing shows up in CCC.

Any help or info greatly appreciated.

AFAIK, you install CAP, then play a game. It recognizes the executable and sets graphics settings accordingly.

If you are using the WHQL's, use the CAP. Just install it after drivers are installed and you're done.

If you're using the newer beta driver, there is an updated CAP built in, no need to install a separate CAP.

Doesn't work, even edited the game config to no avail :toast:
If you haven't already tried this, considering the context of the above quote, go here:

PC Gaming Wiki: Metro 2033, specifically here.

Also, just as an additional FYI snippit for all experimental PC gamers, a relevant quote from Rock, Paper, Shotgun:

"For more guides like this, check out PCGamingWiki, the website which aims to list fixes for every single PC game in a single, user-editable resource. Our Kickstarter project was recently funded in under 6 hours."

Have fun and enjoy.
