You can edit it manually or you can run a reg tweak as shown below:

Catalyst 10.12 - sites.amd.com - download

--> To enable Morphological Antialiasing for ATI 5000 series, use the reg tweak:

Code:
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\ControlSet001\Control\Class\{4D36E968-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}\0000]
"MLF_NA"="0"
"SurfaceFormatReplacements_NA"="0"
"TFQ_NA"="0"
Save it as MLAA.reg, click to run and apply. Don't forget to reboot for the changes to take effect.

--> MLAA.reg - tested on Catalyst 10.12, 10.11, 10.10. Will most likely work on future versions as well.

I too use Fraps, and also Windows scissors, HyperSnap, and Winsnap.


For the MLAA, do as follows:

1. Check if your card is ATI 5000, it has to be to support MLAA
2. Control Panel -> Programs and components -> Uninstall ALL ATI software
3. Reboot into safe mode to clear ATI registry remnants with the Driver Sweeper from Guru3D:

Guru3D - Driver Sweeper

4. Download and install Catalyst 10.12, clicking on the pop-up to confirm to "Install [this unsigned] driver anyway"
5. Reboot
6. Run MLAA.reg and confirm to apply the registry changes:

Code:
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

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

7. Make sure to reboot for the registry changes to take effect.

Enjoy.
