    Ever since I discovered the Touhou Project through this community, I've found myself more and more interested in the world of Doujin games, essentially Japanese indie games. (More info here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/D%C5%8Djin_soft) I kind of always ignored doujin games in the past as I wasn't a fan of anime and some of the Japanese art styles but I've come around on them and discovered that I was stereotyping these games quite a bit and there were a lot of very high quality games being released that were of interest to me. Being a fan of the Neo Geo game Windjammers, I was quite happy to discover a game known as Crazy Power Disc Perfect, essentially an anime styled remake of Windjammers that throws a lot of new twists into the formula, such as the ability to jump. After having found the game - no easy feat as it was originally released on the internet in 2006 - I quickly discovered that there was a major problem with attempting to run this game in Windows 8 or Windows 8.1. Within a few seconds of the first match starting, the game would crash. I attempted to debug the issue and found the crash happening in dmsynth.dll, which is included in the DirectMusic API for Windows 8. This same crash appears to be responsible for a lot of other older doujin games crashing too, so I went looking for a fix and found someone had figured this out earlier this year, so I thought I would bring it to the attention of the community.

    Sounds like you finished not thrown in the towel. I'd be happy with an ugly box and a Mame set, that could keep me happy on my desert island until the Arcade gods take me. You have to say "that's enough" at some point and enjoy your creation, then start again with the Bride of your creation. Then wait for the angry mod (wife/girlfriend/boyfriend/mum) with torches and pitch forks.
