Force Custom Resolutions with AMD GPUs


4 comments posted
One very strong use.

This fix could be used to get GTA 3, Vice City, and San Andreas working in an Eyefinity portrait setup. I tried to run those games before in 3x1P but failed because the game expects 640x480 as an available resolution and will not start unless it's available. So of course, there's no way to edit the settings without the game starting.

Thanks, Haldi. You totally fixed some good games with this one.

@ Zencyde - So have you managed to get GTA: SA working across 3 monitors (eyefinity)?

Failure to override timings?

Haldi, hope you are still around - interesting guide.

I have good reason to follow it at the moment (getting a laptop working at 2560x1440 via HDMI - it can be done have done it before from HDMI to a DELL U2711 DVI-D)

Following the guide I ran into a problem... I get the following errors after adlutil list list.txt and after adlutil over dl.txt

Errors Reads:

"ADL_Display_ModeTimingOverrode_Get<> failed!"
"ADL_Display_ModeTimingOverrode_Set<> failed!"

Im using Catalyst 11.2 I think... can you give any advice? I am using ADL SDK V 3.0 - 4.0 but I got 3.0 from a different link.

I got this working in the end

I got this working in the end - I used my Desktop HD6870 to output a .txt file with DVI out 2560x1440 configuration settings, then changed the adapter index and display index to match the HDMI out on my laptop - transferred it to my laptop - uploaded and Wallah! I had my Dell U2711 working at 2560x1440 on HDMI from my laptop PC.

This said, I now seem to have a strange lag in the system. Like its only working at 30hz... Im going to run the screen at 2560x1440 from my desktop HDMI and see what my results are like.
