Hi Gleb,
Yes, but then you don’t know which one of those commands might show the graphics driver problem!  I guess you can experiment with which parts will work.  The descriptions of the presets say what they include:

Then you can identify individual commands to do those things. Most of the stuff is in the “set” command, see

Publication preset 2 includes white background and silhouette edges, commands:

set bgcol white
set silhouette

It also turns off depth-cueing (mist):

~set depth

… and changes to “licorice” style ribbons (which doesn’t show helix and strand differently):

ribscale licorice

You might also be interested in other “set” options  (see link above), and “lighting”:
