GamerOS Windows 10 & 11 DIY Preset

I play Genshin, and although I don't use this preset, I based mine on it. I have not been banned. The only incident where I couldn't login was when I had a floxif virus on my PC. Genshin was the reason I found it, really.
A little more on this, but if you also play Honkai (from the same devs), it uses the same anticheat, but sometimes one updates before the other. I use the following script to prevent one from overwriting the other everytime you change games (which of course takes extra loading time):

Fair warning: this theoretically can cause your game to load a 'blank' file to your kernel (though it never happened to me over nearly two years of use) and cause bluescreens.

Code:
type nul > UniFairy.sys
Icacls UniFairy.sys /remove:g %username%
Icacls UniFairy.sys /remove:g SYSTEM
Icacls UniFairy.sys /deny %username%:F
Icacls UniFairy.sys /deny %username%:(DE,RC,WDAC,WO,S,AS,MA,GR,GW,GE,GA,RD,WD,AD,REA,WEA,X,DC,RA,WA)
Icacls UniFairy.sys /deny SYSTEM:F
Icacls UniFairy.sys /deny SYSTEM:(DE,RC,WDAC,WO,S,AS,MA,GR,GW,GE,GA,RD,WD,AD,REA,WEA,X,DC,RA,WA)

that creates an empty file where (Mi)Hoyoverse's anticheat would install its file, but making it system locked. Then the anti-cheat would create it on the next available folder, which is the same one where you put the game.

Also of note, some versions require UAC to be enabled, even if on the inbuilt admin account, in whatever notification settings you'd prefer, otherwise they'd crash the system, especially on remote play via steam.

Friendly "warning" people, be VERY careful about discussing cheat software/hacks. Thank you :)

I am still finding goodies in this gameros present. Takes some time to still go through it all to make sure I don't mess anything I need to keep but the amount of work and time involved in it is a god send.

Once again thank you so much for putting this up here for us to tinker with!

That's not a hack, just of a workaround to select the installation folder of a program without that option in the setup. Perfectly legal, even from Hoyo's standpoint (as their EULA only states I cannot install or run the game without the bundled anti-cheat, but it says nothing about where I have to install the damn thing).

Furthermore, this has the same effect of installing and opening one of the games, then installing the other when there's an anti-cheat version mismatch between either. One would install it on the default location, the other on game folder. Or installing and removing one version, then installing the other two. the guy who came up with this workaround simply found a way to do it with an empty file, instead of purposefully restoring an installation leftover file.

I don't see a problem with the instructions -- EXCEPT it needs a strong disclaimer that if the installer messes up, and tries to actually load a zero-length file as a kernel driver, then Windows will crash. As there's risk involved, it's better to share the original post and let readers decide if they want to try it.

Wait, what?

That is not what happens. The game will register where the 'anti-cheat' is located at the install and load from there. The script simply prevents it from installing the anti-cheat "system-wide" for every Mihoyo game which use it (Genshin Impact and Honkai Impact 3rd as far as I know, probably Star Rail and ZZZ but neither was launched so far). That also happens naturally for every game but the first you install if they happen to be using different versions. And it is important BECAUSE both games won't always update at the same time (and they usually don't).

Bluescreens would actually happen if they happened to be using the same "System-wide" version when installed and then one game updates before the other. Then if you've started it as admin, you'll be booted to the loading screen, the anti-cheat will 'update', and you can log in again, every time you start a different game. But if you're not running it as Admin... then you get a 'Less_than_equal' or something bluescreen.

Either way I added a warning.

The instructions create a null driver file, which is untouchable, to force a game installer to error out and skip a step. While it may work this way right now, you have no idea whether future versions of same installer will change their logic. Therefore there's a non-zero risk that the game installs and wants to run the fake driver.

It's not the hack, but informing users to be careful since you can't control the game publisher's actions. The problem is we have a lot of less experienced users, and don't know how to recognize when it's a not a bad NTLite build that's crashing their system.

For anyone wanting to run this in a vm with Looking Glass and the IddSampleDriver, you need to keep the component Media streaming, and the framework, else the driver will give a 19 error code.

Final GamerOS Presets, I dont think there is any more to discover at least for my purpose, many thanks and hopefully this is it, when stuff changes I'll update them, updated presets are the 2022 the windows 10 one was created oct 10th as to fix issues, that the previous presets had (reg file is the minimal processes tweak to be merged)
Having issues with getting the Xbox App to open after using this. Some dependencies ripped out? All xbox services enabled! Any help would be greatly greatly appreciated :)

with forza like most games, all depends what it's client is.
For example I would want to try Chris Titus's updated preset for win10 22h2 and try it with just winget. I guess it won't work since you'd have to log-in to MS account like you have to on MS Store, to make download accessible, if that makes sense.
EDIT: To be more clear, I'm talking about Forza Horizon 5, but FH4 (which is strictly UWP app) would be also nice to have working
