    Super helpful developer, super useful program. It's the ONLY way to fix certain games like Hoyle Casino Empire in w8.

    A really great piece of software, driven by a developer who's both active and supportive.

    If you're having a problem, post in the forum! The creator is very hands-on and willing to try to tackle whatever challenges a particular game presents.

    Thanks for developing this tool. As our native resolutions get higher and higher, the ease of playing older games continues to decrease. A windower tool is sorely needed as time goes on, and this provides, in spades. It has issues, yes, but working with numerous rendering methods and having a bug-free experience is, well, neigh impossible. Now if only it was possible to upscale things without upscaling.. ala CRTs.
