Hey! I had a question about the AMD Catalyst 14.12 Omega drivers, because I have problems launching minecraft with shaders, which worked perfectly before, and after updating my drivers, I can't really use shaders anymore. If it can help, my AMD Card is the R9 270, Processor is i5 4440 and 8GB of Ram.
