Build 260 -- We don’t need no stinking d3dx9_43.dll

We don’t need no stinking d3dx9_43.dll

A couple of people reported that the previous build wouldn't run on their Win 10 laptops because Windows couldn't find a certain DLL.

The missing DLL is part of DirectX but apparently some laptop manufacturers are leaving it out to save space on hard drives.

Mojo started using that DLL yesterday when I made its on-game icon transparent. That's why the error message began yesterday.

In this build, I tried to solve the problem by writing the equivalent of the DLL code and putting it in Mojo's source code. Now Mojo calls its own code instead of the DLL and the DLL is no longer needed.

Many thanks to Fugo, Mikeusnret, and VorAlex.
