D3D12 + SSAA Crash

When using the D3D12 Graphics Backend with the SSAA enhancement enabled, the game will crash when loading any sport. In order to prevent this, either disable SSAA, or change to a different graphics backend.



Using anti-aliasing causes problems with shadow transparency.

Revision OS CPU GPU Result Tester
3.0-735 Windows 7 Intel Core i7-2700K @ 3.5 GHz NVIDIA GeForce GTX 580 Menus invisible with DirectX 9. Stuttering and significant FPS loss with LLE enabled. Perfect with DirectX 11 and HLE. Drezus
3.5-1070 Windows 7 Intel Core i3-2100 @ 3.1 GHz NVIDIA GeForce GTX 650 60FPS constant with DX11 and HLE. Good on 3x Native, probably could do 4x with these specs. DX9 still has invisible textures. tommyB
5.0-16517 Windows 10 AMD 5950X NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070 Game plays absolutely perfectly. Used Emulated Wii Remote with a Real Wii Remote over Emulated Controller. Single Core was used, though this game does not appear to be dual core sensitive. JMC4789
