AMD gfx users: workaround until 1.11

For those that are running with a AMD card and cant get the game to run with the new drivers:
You need to play with counters instead of sprites.

Go to the game folder, usually:
C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Arsenal of Democracy
Or right click on the game in your steam library and select properties,
then select the "local files" tab and the button "browse local content".

In your explorer you will then under gfx/map find a folder called "units" rename this folder, like for example "unitsbackup".

And the game will start even with AMD newest drivers.
( with a single warning during load that you should click ignore )

If you didnt play with counters before, you need to start a new or load your current game, click options and there you will find a option to "use counters" - set that to ON.

You are ready and can play until 1.11 is ready :)
