EoSD help for W10
« on: March 28, 2020, 03:05:40 PM »
As the title suggest, I can't get ESoD to work on my desktop, which runs Windows 10.  I tried compatibility mode, dx8 to dx9 converter, and fanagling with the settings in the custom exe.  None of it worked.  All I get is the error message included in the attached image.  Someone please help me with this.  I've started to hit God enough to 1cc touhou games and I want to finally go back and beat ESoD

Huh, the image didn't attach.  I'll post the text from the log file in a second when I get to my desktop

...It did attach.  I just couldn't see it on mobile.  Here's the text for the error message anyway

EoSD doesn't like running in a path containing non-English characters, e.g. Japanese characters, accents in Windows username.
Rename or move the EoSD folder and try again.

In the compatibility settings try disabling "Full Screen Optimizations" and in the W10 Settings search and disable "Game Bar".  This will fix a lot of problems not only in EoSD but in other old games, especially when playing in full screen mode.
