PPSSPP Crashes my AMD Driver (Windows 7)

PPSSPP Crashes my AMD Driver (Windows 7)
So a while back I upgraded my computer and some games now crash my graphics card (like Tekken 6 or FF4). There was a thread a while back with a similar issue, but the solutions on that thread didn't help me. Any ideas?

OS:Windows 7 Ultimate x86
CPU: Intel Core i3-3250
Ram: 8GB
GPU: AMD Radeon R7 200 Series
PPSSPP v1.21

I'm not sure where to check which version I have, but I'm relatively sure that I disabled it (I had to manually edit an xml file to do so).

You can check your driver version in "Settings > Tools > System Information"
   


I have it on all the time and I have no problem with it at all. Ive been using PPSSPP since 0.8.8 and no driver related crashes happened (not even once)

The driver version is 15.301.1801.1001.
PPSSPP worked fine on my old comp, not sure why it doesn't now.

I was messing with my settings and apparently switching from Opengl to Direct3D9 fixed it. I'm not sure why OpenGL would cause crashes, but at least it works now.
Thanks for your help Accel!
