I have tried multiple play store fixes from around the web and seemed to receive multiple force closes and various other issues when trying to launch Google play and Google apps. So, I decided to take the time to actually fix the files for the rom that I am currently using. Therefore, if you are someone who modified the DPI of your phone manually, happens to be running the Alpha for CM9 (or are willing to try with other roms) you can download the Vending.apk and GoogleServicesFramework.apk from this thread here and see if it helps you too. I should mention that you have to Clear data on the Google Play Store after replacing the files so it can again work properly.

I know many people are going to just say "why didn't you just download LCDModderPro, since it has the market fix?" Simple answer, because I wanted to do it myself. That is one of the great things about Android, it's open source and you can modify things to meet your needs. So why did I post this if I just wanted to do it myself? Well, once it was done I figured I might as well share... below are the links if anyone finds it to be useful.

Google Play 3.5.16:
My attempt at a CWM flashable zip: http://d-h.st/L5B
The files if you just want to copy them to /system/app yourself: http://d-h.st/AhT
The original files in case something goes wrong: http://d-h.st/5FS

Google Play 3.5.19
CWM Flashable Zip: http://d-h.st/d0t
The files if you just want to copy them to /system/app yourself: http://d-h.st/JGo

Google Play 3.7.13:
CWM flashable zip: http://d-h.st/fvz
The files if you just want to copy them to /system/app yourself: http://d-h.st/GfI

I am requesting that only people more experienced try this one ^^ out. I am trying something different this time around and I only actually edited a couple of lines, literally one in both the GoogleServicesFramework.apk and one in Phonesky.apk. It has been working for me for three days now, if you have an issue or it fails to work let me know.

Don't forget to clear data for the Google Play store after installing

Thanks, works great. I like the fact that I can get Google Play working without the use of an extra application. I'll hope you keep this updated.

Google Play Version 3.5.19
I downloaded and installed the newest Google Play store version (3.5.19) and it appears that google has changed the display metrics from DPI to Height/Width. I am waiting to see if the old problem of apps becoming unsupported reoccur with the new version. As of now, after clearing data and toying with the DPI some more, I still have access to all my downloaded apps and the error hasn't occurred. I will update if it proves necessary...

Oh nice, I hope the issues will be a thing of the past so we can run custom DPI with no hassle. Thanks for the fix, its appreciated.
