The new DMM launcher is now forced for all people, and it's region locked. If you don't happen to live in Japan, you're going to have to work around this. Fortunately it is not incredibly difficult to do, so here's a quick step by step guide on working with the new DMM launcher.

  1. If you have your old DMM launcher, it will automatically send you to the website to download the new one. Alternatively, you may directly download it from this link over here.
  2. You will need a VPN to bypass the region check. Any decent free VPN will do as you do not need a massive amount of data.
  3. Use your VPN to connect to Japan
  4. Install the new DMM launcher
  5. Log into DMM and open up your game of choice
  6. Once the game has launched, you can disconnect your VPN

In the future whenever you want to re-open the game, you don't need to do all the steps over again, only 3 of them:

  1. Use your VPN to connect to Japan
  2. Log into DMM and open the game of choice
  3. Once the game has launched, you can disconnect your VPN

A handy tip is that most games only considered you "logged in" to your account data once you click on the title/splash screen, so to avoid getting kicked back to title screen, you should only advance once you have disconnected your VPN. (This may only apply to some games, not all games care about the connecting IP address changing during gameplay)
