OS3.X is well named; it is just a random hodge-podge of components from various ancient versions which causes issues for programs that want to actually take advantage of OS3.9 features. It is not a...

Gateway sold Amiga several years before they were acquired by Acer.

So Acer never owned any Amiga IP, except certain patents which Gateway had retained, if they had not already lapsed by then.

There's no scsi.device in it. Seems to work OK even with HDFs though, WinUAE must access those through a different mechanism.

SetMap is a replacement for the equivalent program from OS1.x.

Mixing such hugely different versions of OS files will not work successfully.

Possibly there is a Birdie/VisualPrefs-type program on Aminet that will patch Intuition to make it look more like 1.x.
