I know, that this is kind of modern HW related, but it shows, why it's good to have some older machine for playing older games.

Nice, good to hear, that they are not throwing old games overboard!

For sure, they don't want to cope with sh*tstorm from community.

This early access driver is being provided for users who have had issues launching a small number of DirectX 9 based games. This alpha driver has not been fully tested by AMD and is not recommended for general use.
