Re: AMD Catalyst 10.10 C hotfix

Thanks man, thought I'd posted them but obviously not.. These drivers can also be modded for the 5 and 4 series to enable 'morph AA'.

(Modified Inf files to enable MLAA for 5xxx and 4xxx (and possibly lower?))

Yep, I have. I didn't install because nothing mentioned applies to me or that I'm overly concerned with.

Great post though, as I'm sure others will be interested.
 


Re: AMD Catalyst 10.10 C hotfix

AMD Catalyst™ 10.10c Hotfix



I can confirm this one installs and works very well for for my ASUS EAH5870 1Gb. DO NOT MOD IT. Just run and install.


To enable Morphologic AA + Texture Filterring Quality + Surface Format Optimization + Mipmap Option, I did:


1. Install Catalyst 10.10 Hotfix C

2. Reboot

3. Modify 13 values in these 2 registry branches:

Code:
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\ControlSet001\Control\Class\{4D36E968-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}\0000]
"EnableUlps_NA"="0"
"MLF_NA"="0"
"SurfaceFormatReplacements_NA"="0"
"TextureLod_NA"="0"
"TFQ_NA"="0"

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\ControlSet001\Control\Class\{4D36E968-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}\0000\UMD]
"AntiAliasSamples_SET"= "0,2,4,8,16"
"AntiAliasMapping_SET"="0(0:0,1:0) 2(0:2,1:2) 4(0:4,1:4) 8(0:8,1:8,2:16) 16(0:16,1:16,2:32)"
"AntiAliasSamples_DEF"="1"
"AntiAlias_DEF"="1"
"EnableUlps_DEF"="1"
"MLF_DEF"="1"
"SurfaceFormatReplacements_DEF"="1"
"TFQ_DEF"="1"
4. Run this Catalyst 10.10c.reg, confirm and apply, Ok

5. Reboot



What I have unlocked is this:





As you can see the Mipmap option is available too . : )


Now, for best quality I set:

- Mipmap -> Hiqh Quality
- Morpho -> On
- AA Edge-detect
+ UNCHECK Surface Format Optimization, with this unchecked the dynamic AA quality (when graphics move) is much better.


~~~~~~~~~~~

Entirely taken by this process, I got a terrible flu with a sore throat, so some of you may wanna pray I get better, cause I got it bad. :(

Glad to see you finally got it working for ya..

It seems that some do get access to the new settings straight away although if not either try the modded inf's or change the Registry key MLF_NA key and change it value to 0.

I could suppose they get unlocked straight away if one instalis 10.10c after the modded 10.10a. I could not install hotfix a, so installing hotfix c didn't automtically unlock the new settings for me.

Just MLF_NA is not it, you also need stuff like MLF_DEF and SurfaceFormatReplacements_DEF. Besides, you may want Mipmaps as well.

Anyway, do not use the same .inf for hotfix c - it'll mess it up, I tried. Hotfix c installs fine without changing the .inf' files. Then if you don't see the new features and you want them, moddify the reg.


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Also, I liked experimenting with this value, looks best to me this way:

(I tried 32x but it would antialiase too much so 8 or 16 is enough)

Code:
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\ControlSet001\Control\Class\{4D36E968-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}\0000\UMD]
"AntiAliasMapping_SET"="0(0:0,1:0) 2(0:4,1:4) 4(0:8,1:8) 8(0:16,1:16,2:16)"

Re: AMD Catalyst 10.10 C hotfix

Nice post..

Your right about the reg key MLF_NA and I should have mentioned that there are several of this type that need to be switched to 0. I did post the correct infs needed above somewhere. It seems 4 series users are having sporadic results with this set although I'll have more news on this later..
