I know my problem is because i don't have the game catalyst app profiles for them.

I searched a bit and found out that there's no seperate dl for game App profiles? How am i supposed to get the App profiles now? I tried using the AMD Gaming Evolved but it's no use.

A quick google search found this.


An AMD Catalyst Application Profile (CAP) is a set of instructions for specific settings, and adjustments that are made dynamically to the AMD Catalyst Driver when a supported game is launched. CAPs are designed to enhance a game's performance and graphics quality when using a compatible AMD Radeon series graphics card. AMD CAPs are packaged with the AMD Catalyst Driver, and the most current version of a CAP will be available in the most current version of the AMD Catalyst Driver (including the lastest BETA version).
Please review the release notes of the AMD Catalyst Driver to determine if changes were made to an existing CAP, or a new CAP was added.
Please note that not all AMD Radeon Series graphics cards and/or Operating Systems will be compatible with the most current AMD Catalyst Driver.

I know that, but the CAPs i had to manually download are what got my games to work. Now that there are none to manually download, i can't play a lot of my games. The AMD Catalyst Drivers that they supposedly update with the CAPs don't work.
