    Ok this is a heads up for people who have the problem I had this morning.

    Here's a video of what happened to my game.

    After several tries of installing the new 12.4 update and failing amd made a fix for this and my game no longer looks like the above video.

    Here is the link that I used.
    And this where I found the above link.

    And it says it's for:
    ATI Radeon HD 4500 Series
    ATI Radeon HD 3600 Series
    ATI Radeon HD 3400 Series
    ATI Radeon HD 2900
    ATI Radeon HD 2600
    ATI Radeon HD 2400

    Hope this helps a few people. C:

    The hotfix works for the HD 4200 series as well. Even though they don't say it does, I tried it since I was experiencing the same thing. :D

    edit: I have since gone back to a driver from 2010, because the newest driver (even with hotfix) didn't fix the issues with Diablo 3. So if you are playing diablo 3 and having issues with monsters showing up ect, you might want to back track the driver it fixed all my problems.

    The hotfix does fix the issues with TS3 however.

    It broke for me after 12.3. This solution might work better if it downloaded in under a day. Will update with confirmation after it finishes, which doesn't look to be any time soon. Seriously, why are they using servers that are behind a 12.8 kbps dial-up?

    Okay, well the 12.4a hotfix fixed it. At least that cuts back on the impossible graphical glitches.

    What about the radeon 3200 series? I tried downloading the hotfix anyway but it didn't make a difference. Also my rollback button is grayed out. Anyone else have this?

    Hi, apparently, I am doing something wrong. It doesnt matter what site I try to click the link for the hotfix from, it takes me to a page, then a pop up for a login appears. the pop up is the same kind that you would see if you were logging into a router. No other site does this, just the link for the hotfix.

    anyone know what setting may be odd that I can fix to get the hotfix.

    Weirder note: My game was running perfectly! Shut down the computer for a week. When I turned it back on...triangle hell. No updates, no changes, just a standard power off like I do everyday, then bamo. Any ideas?

    Thanks for any and all assistance folks. its always appreciated.

    I have the same exact problem as xamiel, when I try to use the link for the hotfix, it brings up some screen requiring a login, I would really appreciate any help, thanks :(

    I too face the same problems when trying to reach the download link for the fix. ?
    Has ATI closed down the server for the fix?

    Perhaps running our graphic card software on a past driver would help?
    ATI recommends using v. 12.3 afterall ?


    Currently trying to download a recent version of the driver.
    I´ll give a heads-up and download link if it works.


    Tried out reinstalling an older version of the driver.
    but failed.

    Instead i just removed Catalyst Control Center and it´s drivers and returned to my present driver. It worked. And will go for a temporal solution until ATI/AMD will find a solution (or update the drivers)

    ( Removing Catalyst Control Center and It´s drivers serves as a temporal solution, but games whom demands a driver like 12.4, will not be able to play proberly, however The Sims 3 should be running smoothly )

    Odd. It wasn't asking for a login before. :shock:

    Oh well, I had backed up to a driver from the end of last year anyway, since even with the fix there was still graphical issues with diablo III.

    Steps to back up:

    Download driver you want to back up to (I choose the one from 12/5/2011)
    Uninstall your current driver
    Restart your computer
    Run the install file
    Restart computer again
