Have any of you tried playing the new game Inside on your macs through boot camp?

I have some GFX issues. The AMD graphics driver often stops responding and crashes the game. I have updated to the newest drivers through Apple Software Update, so I don't know what else to do.

Any advice?

I've had this on my console PC and various Steam games.

It works well if you use the AMD program to update your drivers - download and use the AMD Auto Detection Program.

There's a workaround, albeit iffy. Can google installing amd driver in bootcamp. Starts with an x, the website I'm thinking of. Basically, you need to disable Apple's driver and then jump through some hoops of fire installing the real latest drivers. It helps some games, but it is AMD so YMMV.

mxdriver is what I'm thinking of that I remembered right as I clicked reply. Google that. There are more complicated workarounds out there if you feel confident deciphering some instructions.

Thanks - have you tried the latest version? Is it safe to use?

Thanks.

Just tried AMD AutoDetect. It says that there is no supported AMD hardware :(

This happened when I exchanged my R7 360 for an RX 470. I took out my R7 and used the integrated A10 one for an evening and downloading the latest drivers gave me that error.

Actually go down to "Manually Select Your Driver"
Fill in the boxes and "Display Results"
Download only the "Minimal Setup".
Then it will load the minimal driver for your card and run it, then from there it will ask to load all the rest of the AMD programs and drivers.

I tried that. I get redirected to the Apple Boot Camp AMD drivers, which is the drivers I already have installed, but isn't the latest AMD drivers.
