While this problem goes away when you reboot your computer, that's annoying if you don't reboot often. This simple drop-in fix will make Jade Empire run smoothly even if the system has been up for a long time. It was tested with the GOG and Origin versions of the game, but should work with any other version as well (like the Steam release). Installation ============ - 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 directory.
