I was running Ys8 with latest PH3 Patch very well. i played till middle of chapter 1 and i had to take a lunch break. so i was closing the game-window. Later, i want to play further, the game was not opening. i didnt change anything on computer, windows or the game itself. just a little lunchbreak to eat something. then my neighborhood friend was helping me.
he dedected the ys8.exe process for 2 seconds in windows taskmanager. then it vanished and nothing happens.
he looked at the game files, there was the settings.ini with resulution data like 1600 width and 8XX height. no equal 16:9 size. with minus values at the pos-coordinates.
with the file time there i closed the game for the lunchbreak.
he asked me, what i did to the game settings. i did nothing, but i maximized the game window such as maximizing a browser or word window. should be ok.
so he deleted and re-installed from scratch, and the game was working well again,
and he looked at the game files again. the ini-file got 1280x720 and positiv pos-coordinates.

so he said, maybe the game only can launch with correct 16:9 size-data. but the game is allowing to change the window for any size or maximize it (no real fullscreen, just maximized). And the game itself saves the user-given window-size.

so he did a write-protection to adjust.bin, config.bin and settings.ini to keep the very first state after the re-installation. he said, this is a bug because the game should handle this without re-installation or settings-restore.

but yes, maybe this information can help someone.

and if needed
there is the "factory" default ini what cames from the installation.
