    Lagging Platform Categories

    @Jason Carr That is correct. I am reffering to Big Box. While browsing through Platform Categories,it lags loading the assets. First my marquee stuff pops up,then the main screen populates with video and info. The time it takes for this to happen is longer or shorter depending on the category. Longest time is about 8-10 seconds total for categories that have alot of platforms on the second level. I have tried turning off the marquee,as well as switching to wmp for video playback,both resulted in no change to the behavior.

    Just want to verify,that after removing all but a few Collection playlist xml's from the data folder,and starting bigbox,and moving to the Collections category,in the Platform Category menu,it no longer suffers from the lag. So,it is most definitely tied to the amount of Platforms/Playlists in that category.

    Lagging Platform Categories

    @Jason Carr Hey...So I would first like to say that I did not experience this issue in 8.7,or any version previous to that...this only just started happening in 8.8,and has continued in 8.9. I have a bit of lag when switching through Platform Categories (Arcade,Consoles,Handhelds,etc.),but,I do not get this lag while browsing Platforms (Atari 2600,Atari 5200,etc.). The amount of lag seems to have something to do with the amount of Platforms that are in that category. This is only a guess,but,looking at the behavior,it looks to be the most probable reason for it. When I go to Arcade (which I have roughly 30 Platforms/Playlists),it loads up in about 2 seconds...when I go to Collections (which I have about 270 Playlists),it loads up in about 8 seconds....when I go to Pinball (which has only 5 Platforms),it loads up almost instantly. I have tried multiple themes,and they all show the same lag in the Platform Category View,but not in the Platform View. I did reinstall 8.7,and it did not have the problem anymore,but,I switched back to 8.9 because my platforms were all messed up when I rolled back,I assume due to all of the changes made between the two versions. I also updated windows,and my graphics drivers are up to date.I have not tried the latest beta. It is run off a cabinet.No Firewall,No AntiVirus,No Adware Blocker....I don't even use the web browser on that PC. If you need more info,I will be happy to provide it,Thanks.

    @goofersseems like all I have are the 2 default bezels below.I did see the couple threads you posted under,and that you were working on making some,and I also grabbed the pack of 18 bezels for mame that are available...but,I still have to implement them into rocketlauncher myself. Here is a link to the google drive,but,you probably already have these ,as you posted in that same thread... https://drive.google.com/open?id=1Z-XWMVh4IsW_uAOklrwSa3idPFe9zJug

    Just to be clear with anyone who prefers the wheel fading...there are four views for every platform.. 1.Character Art View 2.Box/Cart/Disc View with fading wheel 3.Box/Cart/Disc View without fading wheel 4.Text Games View So both options are intact. For systems with only carts,views 2 and 3 will not rotate the carts...for systems with only discs,views 2 and 3 will rotate the discs

    Done. Examples:

    The wheel does fade when box/cart art is displayed. The main theme uses 3 wheel views,and the addon themes only use 2...so there is room to add another view in. I suppose I can have a look at adding that as an option,but,the box and cart would require a drop shadow or glow to at least set it apart from the wheel,or it will overlap and look messy.
