Knytt Stories GrayFace
Knytt Stories is a wonderful free platformer. Extended Version is my mod for it.
In order to play Knytt Stories Ex or any other version of Knytt Stories with proper FPS you need to either adjust your monitor refresh rate or use a compatibility setting. Refresh rate of 75 herz works pretty well, 100+ would be ideal. As for the compatibility setting, to access it in Windows 7 or Vista open "Knytt Stories Ex.exe" properties, go to Compatibility tab and check "Disable desktop composition". Windows 8 and 10 don't have that option. There are programs that can temporarily disable desktop composition (WDM) in Windows 8, but it's said that they don't work in newer versions of Windows 10. WDM aka Aero is the thing that allows effects such as transparency in Windows starting with Vista, but causes a very crude forced V-Sync for all windowed mode applications, degrading FPS and making it unstable.
Extended Version v1.5.9

Trivia: Multimedia Fusion 2 is the visual game creation program Nifflas used in the past. In case you wonder if it's any good, it isn't. It's hard to overstate how bad it is. It's very impressive what Nifflas managed to achieve with such a bad tool.
