I was just trying to edit around k2 a little to make it work on windows 8 and accidentally stumbled upon a fix for
(at least i think)
all fangames that crash on windows 8.Here's how to do it:Step 1: download this file and save it anywhere https://www.mediafire.com/download/2hytbp9b2450ta4/dmsynth.dllStep 2: go to C:\Windows\SysWOW64 , find this file, and click propertiesStep 3: Click advanced on the security tabStep 4: Click change owner(yours will have a different owner than mine)Step 5: Click advancedStep 6: Click Find NowStep 7: Scroll down to find "Administrators" (the one my mouse is on) highlight it then click OKStep 8: Click OKStep 9: Click Apply then click OKStep 10: Click on Administrators then click Edit...Step 11: Make sure you are still on Administrators then click Full Control (this should auto check all boxes)Step 12: Very Important Create a backup folder and copy your current "dmsynth.dll" into itStep 13: Copy the downloaded dmsynth.dll into C:\Windows\SysWOW64Step 14: Select "Replace the file in the destination"
Then enjoy playing fangames without worrying about windows 8 versions or crashes
I only tested this on the Kamilia 2 Guy boss fight and some save in I wanna be the favorite difficulty, so please feel free to tell me about any issues.
I've now thoroughly tested tons of games with no crashes.
Edit: some users are reporting that after a recent windows update that games crash again, This is because windows updated the dmsynth.sll file. If this happened to you then just redoing the above guide will fix it once again.
