Hello everyone.

We have decided to phase out the Mixed Reality Forums over the next few months in favor of other ways to connect with us.

The first way we want to connect with you is our mixed reality developer program, which you can sign up for at https://aka.ms/IWantMR.

The plan between now and the beginning of May is to clean up old, unanswered questions that are no longer relevant. The forums will remain open and usable.

On May 1st we will be locking the forums to new posts and replies. They will remain available for another three months for the purposes of searching them, and then they will be closed altogether on August 1st.

So, where does that leave our awesome community to ask questions? Well, there are a few places we want to engage with you. For technical questions, please use Stack Overflow, and tag your questions using either hololens or windows-mixed-reality. If you want to join in discussions, please do so in the HoloDevelopers Slack, which you can join by going to https://aka.ms/holodevelopers. And always feel free to hit us up on Twitter @MxdRealityDev.

HoloLens Emulator graphic glitches on AMD Vega

Hi, I've recently upgraded my GPU to an AMD Vega 56 and the HoloLens Emulator (v10.0.17.134.80) now doesn't render text in the start menu correclty anymore (see screenshot below). Text within other OS windows (e.g. Settings) is displayed correctly, but all window menu bars also display these weird symbols. I have previously seen this issue on a mobile Vega 8 GPU, but not on other AMD or NVIDIA architectures.

I also encountered graphic glitches when running my own Holographic Apps on the Emulator on the mobile Vega (that were not present when running the same up in the Emulator on different machines).

Has anyone experienced this issue before? So far, I couldn't find any information on this and I'm not sure where to officially submit a bug report for the Emulator. I would be grateful for any help or information about this issue!

On a side note: The Emulator also always had an annoying tendency to complete freeze up my computer with a blackscreen after running for a few minutes. I believe that is unrelated to the graphic glitches, but I never got around to further investigate that problem..
