Nevermind I figured it out. To anyone having the problem of a bunch of random characters with 'DirectSound' somewhere in there, you just need to change your Locale for non-unicode apps to Japanese. On Win10, you can do this by going to the bottom right on your taskbar Click the Language section (should say ENG if you have it set to English) Language Preferences Administrative Language Settings (one of the links on the right) Change System Locale Japanese (Japan).
You will have to restart your computer, but it should work from there on out!

This is my first time trying to download abandonware and I honestly have no clue what I'm doing... I downloaded the game and 3 patches, but I just get errors when trying to run the game or any of the patches with really weird characters (guessing they're supposed to be Japanese characters but get messed up in translation). Any help would be amazing please!

whats the controls?

How to fix your frame rate! Game wants to switch to 640x480 but it may not choose the right refresh rate. You may have to create a custom resolution for 640x480 60hz. You can use nvidia control panel or custom resolution utility. Then make a profile in your graphics control panel to enable either vsync or fast sync for the exe. FIRST switch to your 640x480 60hz and then launch the game.

BTW make sure you get the patch and translation.

So I have enabled "Force 60 frames" yet it is still being super fast, is there anything else that can help or am I doing something wrong?

IMPERIAL BLACK NUMENORIAN, go into custom_e.exe and enable "Force 60 frames".

Flandre has lived for at least 495 years, but since she goes a little crazy due to emotional instability, she has never been taken outside the bounds of the Scarlet Devil Mansion, or rarely leaves the building itself, and as she herself never tried going outside for the respect she has to her sister, she was raised knowing nothing about the outside world. However, she has shown a desire to go outside after witnessing the events of Embodiment of Scarlet Devil. Her initial attempt to do so was blocked by Patchouli Knowledge's rain summoning magic.

To fix the speed try going into "custom_e.exe" (it should be in your Touhou 06 / (Eo)SD folder) and checking the option "Force 60 Frames".

I was looking to play this game, but have heard about the FPS problem related to playing EoSD on Windows 10 (ludicrous speed). Has it been fixed with the version available on this website, or how can it be solved?

I found a hitbox patch that add hitboxes from later games when holding shift here:
And a patch to allow saving replays in practice mode, also like later games:

There's also an updated texture pack:

You can fix the 666 fps by switching the game to windowed/turning the bit from 32 to 16
