DirectX with NES Games
Most NES games suffer strange graphical issues when using the DirectX backend with some graphics drivers; notably NVIDIA. This is a driver bug.
As of, the D3D driver bugs can be worked around by setting Ubershaders to Exclusive. It's unknown what exactly is going on with the driver that's causing Exclusive Ubershaders to work properly.
This title does not need non-default settings to run properly.
