There are several games in my steam library that use the hl2.exe application name and I simply want to save seperate application settings for each one. Right now I have one for CS:S and I'm being asked to overwrite it for Minerva. Mind you these application files are in different directories.

Nevermind.

While I had thought the CCC was going to overwrite the profile I had created for CS:S it did not. It created a whole seperate profile for Minerva even though the applications were the same name.

Anyway, what's the best combination for the Filter, Anti-Aliasing Method, and Morphological Filtering settings?

The source engine has all AA and AF settings available inside the games, so I don't think it's necessary to create a profile for them. Just use the in-game options The only exception is Vampire Bloodlines, which doesn't have these settings (not even using the console or switches), so a profile is a must have.

 

Morphological AA is useful for games that do not support regular AA at all. E.g. games that use deferred rendering, some PoP games etc. I wouldn't use it on games that support regular AA as it makes font corruption and the image becomes a bit blurry as well.
