Summary 08007: spangbl: Test Screen can't be accessed
Description It's currently not possible to open the Test Screen in this specific version of the game. This video of the real bootleg in action shows a different number of lives than the default, so it should be possible to do (or perhaps the default is wrong?):
Steps To Reproduce Boot the game, wait for the title screen to appear, press F2. The game will freeze instead of showing the menu.

It is a bootleg. While it is assumed they retain all features, is it a sure thing that test screen can be access the same way once protection was hacked?
In any case, your observation about settings is valid enough for confirmation and examination.
