Bootleg quirks

  • The TrueTransparency skin "Live Xp Super 8" doesn't work, because its theme files are in its own subfolder, when it should be moved back to its parent folder.
  • All of the TrueTransparency skins, along with the OS themes all have a "Live Xp Super" prefix. This is also the case in Fares Elahlam's other bootlegs. The stock TrueTransparency skins also have been prefixed, and grandfathered in.
  • The included 5 games are contained in the "Games" program group in All Users.
  • There is a program on the desktop named "كنز الغرائب.exe" (A Treasure Trove of Curiosities; rough translation), which is a VB6 program which contains a collection of interesting facts and trivia.
