GTA V problem with directX and AMD card (i think)
So recently I switched from an old GTX 1650 to a Rx 6700XT. Before the switch I uninstalled the drivers of the 1650 with DDU and put in the rx 6700xt.
Everything worked pretty fine. Until I tried to launch GTA...It gave me the error "err_gfx_d3d_init" so I just googled it. Apparently all the "fixes” shown in the internet are trash or at least not working for me.
Just in case I uninstalled my Graphic mods (QuantV) and I at least got into the game. But holy it did look bad. For comparison I've searched some vanilla game footage on youtube and compared it to mine. Well. Take a look yourself. It does look like I'm running on dx10 or something.
So I reinstalled GTA and deleted all folders that could cause any problems in the appdata thing and documents folder.
After all that it still looks exact same and whenever i install Quant i get the same error as before Anyone can help?

You have 2 separate issues and unless you have a bad hard drive or bad RAM reinstalling will not help either one. Reinstalling seldom fixes anything.
First of all are you aware QuantV may contain malware? Not sure if the SP install phones home or just the FiveM version but keep that in mind to minimize the risk of all your partitions being wiped clean.
Your second issue might be related to DirectX (try 11) or your AMD card. AMD makes excellent graphic cards but are notorious for horrible drivers. So try updating your drivers or reverting to a previous one.
Also, set your in-game visual settings to default to see if it fixes any visual issues. Remember that a good monitor, properly calibrated for brightness, contrast, colour saturation (and proper profile) negates the need for crap like QuantV.
If outdoors, in rl, you see dark blue skies and saturated colours, have your vision checked by a qualified eye specialist - as those don't exist in real life, only with ENBs and graphic mods like QuantV.
@JohnFromGWN Mhh well lets dont look that close at the Graphic mods than (that have always worked btw. and i kinda "need" to produce my vids).
I just want my GTA to work in general again.
Should i downgrade my current AMD drivers to an older version? I mean yeah. Im running GTAV in dx11 and it looks like dx10 BUT it does run! It just dosnt go into my mind why it doesnt work like ususaly.
@Jeskoisdoof You have nothing to lose by trying, but while it could help with stability problems I don't think it will help with the way you perceive the quality of your graphics.
From your screenshot the graphics seem fine but I'm viewing them on a great tablet, so I expect better quality.
@JohnFromGWN look...this is my vannilla GTA on reseted graphic settings. Its suppost to be a perlecent colour and a chrome grille. But it just looks off!![0_1670335771410_Screenshot 2022-12-05.jpg](Uploading 100%)
I also made a short vid to make it clear what i mean

@JohnFromGWN the image is just showing the same as the vid, and you can see the vid. Right?
@Jeskoisdoof did you change the paint with a trainer? Definitely looks matte rather than metallic.
@JohnFromGWN dont have a trainer...this is the just installed GTA V after my PC "reset"
I hate to tell you this, but when I built my current desktop I decided to go all AMD. Unfortunately I had issues with quite a few games that I had never had with my older Intel and nvidia rig.
I googled similar problems but couldn't find any answers. I updated and reverted AMD drivers, and spent a few frustrating days troubleshooting to no avail.
What I did see on forums, over and over, are that AMD drivers are shit.
So I kept my Ryzen on my ROG mobo and returned my AMD GPU, replacing it with nvidia. Never looked back, unlikely I will ever buy an AMD card again.
That's just my personal experience, hopefully you'll be able to resolve yours without an RMA.
