[Bug] Links 2003 and NAVI+ cards; no anti-aliasing in windowed mode + graphic artifacts on golfer

Summary:
1. For NAVI and higher cards Links 2003 using latest drivers (21.1.1) displays a white polygonal 'spike' coming out of the ankle of the golfer in full-screen and windowed mode.
2. Driver fails to apply anti-aliasing to windowed mode while playing.

Setup:
Install Links 2003 from this site ($6):
https://www.linkscountryclub.com/proshop/links-2003-download-version

Install Patches (1.07 and AMD/NVIDIA Patch):
https://www.linkscountryclub.com/download

Download the following course and put it in the \Courses directory in Links2k3:
https://linkscorner.org/courses/course.php?crz=1890

Create profile in Radeon software on .exe called LinksMMIII.exe
Anti-Aliasing: Override application settings / 8xEQ / Supersampling
Morphological: Disabled
Anisotropic Filtering: 16X
Texture Filtering: High
Surface Format Optimization: Enabled
Tesselation Mode: AMD Optimized

Verify the following settings via regedit:
Computer\HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Microsoft Games\Links 2003\DisplaySettings
Mode 15 (1920x1200) or Mode 14 (1920x1080)
Windowed 1

Repro Steps:
1. Launch Links2k3 via LinksMIII.exe
2. Choose Play Golf
3. Select the Pilgrims Trail Course from Above
4. Use alt-v to change view to 'close up' where golfer is largest in foreground.

Observe:
White polygon spike coming out of ankle, it also has a shadow interestingly.
No anti-aliasing in Windowed mode, golfer's club and shorts show this, see pic.

Expected:
No spike, and anti-aliasing in windowed mode.
This all works fine in non-NAVI cards like the prior gen RX590; no spike and anti-aliasing is applied in windowed mode

Actual:
White polygon spike coming out of ankle, it also has a shadow interestingly.
No anti-aliasing in Windowed mode, golfer's club and shorts show this, see pic.

Note:
Thank you for fixing the issue with anisotropic filtering not working, with 21.1.1 this has been re-implemented and looks great. :) @Matt_AMD

As a potential temp workaround; looks like if you're in windowed mode and are not anti-aliased if you 'alt-enter' and go into full-screen mode you get anti-aliasing as expected, then if you alt-enter back to windowed mode it will *retain* the anti-aliasing from the full-screen and it will stay anti-aliased in windowed mode for the duration of the session.  Fresh restart of the game will go back to the jaggies in windowed mode.

  1. Start game windowed mode. No anti-aliasing.
  2. Alt-Enter to full-screen.  Anti-aliasing.
  3. Alt-Enter back to windowed mode. Anti-aliasing for the duration of the game session.
