Video driver crashing - tahuhali - 10-12-2013 12:43 AM

I am using ppsspp to play Kingdom Hearts: Birth by Sleep and everything is working beautifully, except for the fact my video driver keeps crashing making the game not very playable. why? no idea. my computer should be able to handle the emulator just fine:
Windows 7 64-bit
quad core prosessor
8 GB Ram
ATI Radeon HD 4600 series Video card
latest drivers as far as i know.

any ideas to keep my diver from crashing?

Have you reverted to Catalyst 11.11? I had problems with frequent crashes using the latest Catalyst (13.2?) and finally reverted to Catalyst 11.11 on solarmystic's advice, and haven't had a single video driver crash since.

Latest AMD OGL drivers + ATI Radeon HD Legacy Cards (2xxx/3xxx/4xxx) + PPSSPP = Instabilities and Video Driver Crashes.

Downgrade back to the 11.11a performance drivers for a superior experience on your legacy card when using PPSSPP.

I've recommended this to every single ATI legacy card owner using PPSSPP on this forum and have gotten zero complaints from that recommendation. I should know, I'm using the exact same card like you are. Hundreds of hours of gameplay, and not a single crash due to display driver issues.

Also refer to this thread for the various other shortcomings that ATI/AMD graphics cards have with regards to PPSSPP:-

Hi there,

Make sure you are using the latest Beta version which at the time of writing this: v0.9.9-27-g62d1948

Found here: http://buildbot.orphis.net/ppsspp/index.php

Hopefully that will now allow you to play your ripped games that you own. Cool
