Unfortunately, I know next to nothing about D3D or OpenGL...

I do wonder why the game appears to work fine.. I haven't noticed any
anomalies in the graphics output as far as I can tell. If this is also
the case for those 3 other games, wouldn't an override via the
registry for this value not be an acceptable solution?!
