What configuration is actually needed? IIRC the config file contained some
magic numbers in hex, not something that should ever have been exposed to
users (hell, I have no clue what they mean either :).

I can't think of anything that would need configuration here, can't we
auto-detect everything?

Well, better than editing text files is using regedit.

If you want to fix this, finding out what the hell the old settings did
would be a good start ;)
