I may have a solution to your problem. You're probably missing the d3dx9_42.dll file.

Download the file from here:
http://www.dll-files.com/dllindex/dll-files.shtml?d3dx9_42

Drop the file into the main install directory of the game (usually located here):
C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Half Minute Hero

My apologies the site seems to be down at the moment. Here's an alternative link for you to use:

I had the same problem, and I dropped the file in. Now the game loads, but there's no music or sound.

I'm assuming you get an error every time you run the game followed by no sound. This should get your sound working:

Its says "This application has failed to start because MSVCP100.dll was not found. Re-installing the application may fix this problem" so should i just uninstall and reinstall or is there something i can download

No need to reinstall. In some cases people are missing 2 other files. You can get the files here:
http://www.dll-files.com/dllindex/dll-files.shtml?msvcp100
http://www.dll-files.com/dllindex/dll-files.shtml?msvcr100

Drop the files into the main install directory of the game (usually located here):
C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Half Minute Hero

You need to put the file where the game was installed on your computer. So it'll be the area where the executable to run the game is. An easy way to get here is to:
1. Locate Half-Minute Hero in your games library.
2. Right click on the game and select properties.
3. Click on the Local Files tab up top.
4. Here you'll notice an option that says Browse Local Files. By clicking this you will open a window in the spot where you need to put the file.

I actually placed it in the exact location where it located me before I knew where to and it didn't work at all. .my game still doesn't launch :(

If you don't mind I'd like to send you a friend request so I can talk with you to solve your issue faster. I noticed you don't accept random requests but I'd like you to be able to play your game.
