[Fix] Dragon Quest 8 Overworld Framerate Issue

Noticed a lot of people having this issue and spent a while looking for a fix. I tried toggling graphics settings and cpu underclocking/overclocking (messing with the cpu just crashed citra for me). This 30fps framerate cap cheat fixed it for me, but I’ll post USA/EU codes as well.

Note: There were 30fps cheats without the L+R but they did not work as well as the L+R codes for my JPN version. Hope this is useful to someone. (Edit: This was using the latest Canary build.)

If anyone is skeptical, I just finished the game using the fix and had no issues. I know sinking 40+ hours into something that might bug out at some point might seem awful, so I wanted to show that it worked (for me, at least).

I also read about some camera bug that stopped progress early in the game. Never ran into that problem. But I also played the JP version.

Anyway, have fun.
