Can anybody explain what's this fix for? Thanks
The Yuzusoft fixes are big. It may not sound like much to people not into Visual Novels, but in VN world they're big. I wouldn't say they're the Call of Duty of VN world, but people who've been in the community for a while usually have an opinion on them or at least have tried their games - and if you're into moege then you have to have played at least one of their games.

Also, they're the gold standard for customization settings in VNs (when Sakura Miko promoted their game, going to the options was one of the thing she highlighted).

For a long while now, I was stuck with Proton 4.11 because that was the only one that can correctly install WMP9 and have the correct window behavior for their custom Kirikiri engine. Not needing to tinker with it anymore is great!

Working for me too! I wonder if it's to prevent the launcher from forgetting your username and password... that would be great.
