Adds Anti-Aliasing to HLMV

[b]1.[/b] Locate "Dxsupport.cfg" in your Team Fortress 2/Episode Two/Generic Source Game bin folder.(Default Path: C:\Program Files\Steam\steamapps\\team fortress 2\bin) and copy it to your Source SDK bin folder. (Default Path: C:\Program Files\Steam\steamapps\\Source SDK\bin\(Orangebox or ep1)\bin\) Open the file in notepad (or any other text editing program) [i]NOTE1: If the file already exists in the SOURCE SDK bin folder don't bother copying it over. Although it wouldn't hurt too in case you accidentally did so.[/i] [i]NOTE2: If you can't find it either in your Source SDK bin folder or TF2/Generic Source game folder then download a copy --> http://www.mediafire.com/?kktznnmyzwx.[/i] [b]2.[/b] Locate your Graphics Card in the file (There may be multiple entries, if so do it for all of them.) If your GPU doesn't exist within the file, go to the bottom and find either Nvidia Unknown or ATi Unknown. [b]3.[/b] Add or modify under your graphics card entry: "ConVar.mat_antialias" "8" [b]4.[/b] Save the file and enjoy Anti-Aliasing (This can also work for other Cvars/console commands.)

    Posted by demon_firefox I experienced several issues when activating AA/AF through Catalayst and In-Game. Furthermore ingame AA/AF might be a bit faster and cleaner then "driver" AA/AF.
    For me its the opposite D: The game one makes me lag even on 2x and forced one runs smoothly even on 8x

    Posted by IppE Easier way is to force anti-aliasing trough catalyst control center or nvidia control panel. Sure works for me.
    Not rly 'cause you always have to set it before using hlmv. @JakeyB Nice tut!
    Not if you have it set all the time. I for one have 8x AA and 16x Anisotropic forced all the time.
