So, the moral of this story I suppose that I learned is to be careful w/ the "FPS Optimizer" program, it's a very powerful tool. Or in my case, just dont friggen use it ='.'=
Seems to be a good rule for all older games on newer hardware:
Capping the framerate to 50 in the *.ini file allowed me to play Shogo again.

Not using external tools, when not absolutely necessary is another one. DOSBox is the only exception from that in my experience, it never failed me.
