  • How to Play Queen of Heart ’99 on Windows 10 64bit

    kang_wonseok, a fellow QoH ’99 fan, notified me about a blog post on how to run the game on Windows 10 64 bit. The following is an edited translation with kang_wonseok’s notes in italics: Note: kang_wonseok found that this method also works for Windows 8.1.
