Bootleg quirks

  • This bootleg comes with WineD3D and DirectX 9 drivers, both as a setup hotfix and dropped files to system32.
  • Like Windows XP NeoMax 2016, it has an issue with ampersands in the System Properties, where "Powered by DMS&Tomecar" gets interpreted as "Powered by DMSTomecar".
  • The Internet Explorer title is set to "[Insira o texto aqui]". The person who integrated these registry tweaks clearly forgot to configure that first.

  • The autorun is removed.
  • The CD label is set to "EXTREME_GAMING".
