Product: The Sims 4
Platform:PC
Which language are you playing the game in? English
How often does the bug occur? Every time (100%)
What is your current game version number? 1.71.86.1020
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? All
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? Just place mirror
What happens when the bug occurs? Mirror reflection is backward
What do you expect to see? Mirrors to work like it should
Have you installed any customization with the game, e.g. Custom Content or Mods? Not now. I've removed them.
Did this issue appear after a specific patch or change you made to your system? Yes
Please describe the patch or change you made. New PC. I think it is GPU related (Radeon RX 6800 XT)

I have send ticket to AMD too. This "reflection bug" only happens with Sims. So I hope you guys can help me.

@Sillyville14 I have a Nvidia card and I don't' see this. Guess someone on AMD will need to test.

Is this since the patch ?

No. Since I build this new PC few days ago. All was good in old PC. I had NVIDIA GPU then.

@Sillyville14 Are there any settings in the AMD settings that could account for this ?

Not that I know. I have enabled and disabled all settings I can get my hands on. I guess I need to wait new drivers from AMD.

@Sillyville14: I have an AMD Radeon (TM) RX 580, and I tested this yesterday (1.70 unpatched) and moments ago (1.71 patched). I couldn't duplicate this problem.

 

I've uploaded two pics (first is yesterday, second is today; there's no statue in the first pic but that shouldn't make any difference, hopefully), and my DxDiag.txt.

 

Can you post a DxDiag.txt of your own? Also, what is the version number of your driver compared with mine in "Display Devices"?

I'm having the same mirror issue, and I'm also running an AMD Radeon RX 6800 XT. I didn't have this issue when I had a NVIDIA 1080 in my build. My game and graphics drivers are up to date. I've attached a screenshot of what's happening in my saves.

@wntrprin : What version is your graphic's card driver? (If you're on Windows, look at your DxDiag.)

@Sillyville14 : The driver version in the DXDiag is 27.20.14535.1000. The 21.2.2 would be your Adrenaline Experience software, right?

 

My DxDiag driver version is 27.20.14501.18003, and my Adrenaline 2020 Experience version is 20.11.2; the latter is the recommended version for me, as per this screenshot of the installer choices that I attached.
