Jade Empire Stutter Fix

Jade Empire has a known issue where, if your system has not been restarted for a
long time (on the order of many days), the game will stutter: it will still be
running at a high framerate (depending on your hardware and settings), but
animations and movement will be janky and stuttery as if it was running at a
much lower framerate. While this problem goes away when you reboot your

- Extract the contents of this archive (in particular `d3d9.dll`) into your
  Jade Empire installation directory, next to `JadeEmpire.exe`.
- Run the included `vcredist_x86.exe` installer to install the
  *Microsoft Visual C++ 2015 x86 Redistributable*. You may already have it
  installed in which case the installer will do nothing.

To uninstall the fix, simply remove the `d3d9.dll` from your Jade Empire
