I wanted to play Conviction before playing Blacklist and I don't know what to do now. Is it AMD's fault or Ubisoft's fault that Splinter Cell Conviction is not supported by the R9 200s? Every time I open it it says it's not supported and then when I play it, I get loads of graphical stuttering and bugs. Someone said to downgrade Catalyst to 12.X but I'm not going to do that. That's a silly solution. I bought this game thinking that it would play on my new $250 graphics card but I guess I'm wrong. I'm sitting here having a panic attack out of frustration because all I want to do is play a game that I paid for, but I feel like I've been cheated. Nowhere online does it say that the game is not supported with these cards. Only when it validates my system do I get that message. I know it's a long shot, but can AMD update their drivers or something? I am having a hard time justifying buying any Ubisoft games or keeping AMD stuff since this has happened on more than a few games so far.

Just to update, I sent manyt questions to Ubisoft and they don't know what to do because they are uninformed. Twice they told me to update my graphics drivers and then asked me if my system meets the minimum specs. I'm pretty sure my custom built $1000 system meets the requirements for a 4 year old game.

Hmm, haven't played Splinter Cell Conviction with my new R9 290, so gonna try it later.   Splinter Cell Black List works perfectly though.

That would be because Ubisoft needs to patch their game to properly detect the card. Go to their forums.

Sounds like a NVidia deal. There are a lot of games which are not working with AMD or very bad with AMD. Like Warface. Only graphic artifacts with actual hardware and drivers. I think its because Nvidia made a lot of deals. 

Hmmm.... what can i say...



ok ive made reseach N.... has the same problem ... the graphiccard should be suppored... but i dont trust N.... ... the deals they are making are so N.... like. And because its a Ubisoft Game and N... has much deals with them, it could be the reason. Dont know.
