 Cyna Games > How to register?
Kyodai Mahjongg is a shareware program, meaning you can freely test the software for a period of one month to see if it suits your needs. If it does, you are invited to register if you continue to use it. Registering will remove all the reminders from the game.

What registration will bring you

  -- No more reminders during the game.
  -- Free upgrades forever; customers who purchased KMJ back in 1997 are still able to download the latest upgrade for free.
  -- Be satisfied that you contributed to indie game development. We all need your support!

How to register
Online registration: US $22.95. You can pay by Visa, MasterCard, AmEx, PayPal and other methods:

Note: this is a special offer, limited in time, which I'm doing because there have been many people requesting for ways to buy KMJ, and until I find a better solution.

I've been trying to return to game development for a few months now, both to modernize KMJ a bit, and maybe do other projects. We'll see. In the meantime, I've been re-establishing contact with fans, and it's always good to see that Kyodai Mahjongg remains a beloved game so many years after I considered it 'finished'. So I'm now giving you the ability to purchase it again, this time manually from the author himself.

- For faster processing, as well as gift requests, don't forget to indicate your desired user name (usually that's your first & last name, but you can choose a nickname as long as it's at least 8 characters long). Otherwise I'll use the purchaser's name as told by PayPal.
- Sales numbers don't justify setting up an automated payment process, so for the current time I'm handling everything by myself. Unless you're lucky and I'm on my PC when you're buying, I won't be able to process your payment immediately, so please allow for up to 48 hours (usually a couple of hours) before inquiring.
- There is currently no way to access the 'private' forum on; apologies about that. What you're buying is your unlock code for Kyodai Mahjongg itself. And my personal thanks, of course.

You can also contact me on Steam, if you have an account as well. Add me as a friend, then send your best wishes, your worst outrages or some cheap game from my wishlist. Following the social experiment, there will be cake.

Postal mail registration is no longer available. See here.

Compatibility with Windows Vista and later
    It has been brought to my attention that many Windows users were getting error messages when quitting the game. This is something that might happen in default configurations for some people. The fix, however, is very simple: uninstall Kyodai Mahjongg, and reinstall it in a different folder. The problem is linked to the fact that Windows will sometimes prevent any program from creating new files in folders contained within C:\Program Files (x86)\. Installing Kyodai Mahjongg to, for instance, C:\Games\, should eliminate the issue entirely.

How do I upgrade to the latest version?
    All upgrades are free for registered users. Just get the latest version and install it!

How do I enter my registration information?
    You will receive your user name and password immediately (and automatically) after the order is confirmed. The e-mail will also contain all instructions on how to unlock your copy of Kyodai Mahjongg in a few seconds, and what to do in case you lose your password.

    Kyodai Mahjongg is distributed on the try-before-you-buy shareware principle. Ah, shareware... Old term, innit? Now the youngsters are calling these 'indie games', except indie games don't always allow you to try the program to ensure it meets your needs before you register. Please be aware that since the trial version is fully functional, registration is final and non-refundable.
