Final Fantasy IV : The complete collection

RE: Final Fantasy IV : The complete collection
The change just removed a legacy BGRA path (rather than RGBA) which was used to improve performance on some older NVIDIA cards - it was actually hurting performance on newer cards. Plus the code added complexity that sometimes introduced bugs when making other changes.

In theory, the worst that should happen is that things might get slower.

What this probably means is that some AMD drivers are mishandling RGBA, or else some combination of settings. It might be doable to reintroduce BGRA, but it'd be best to figure out exactly when we need to enable it, because it's pretty decently slower on more modern NVIDIA cards.

With that said, many Windows games use Direct3D 11 - have you tried switching to the Direct3D 11 backend? I would expect it to work better for AMD and Intel cards.
