  1. I really like the rating feature in Bigbox. Sometimes I’ll scroll through and look for games I’ve never played with good ratings. However, games rarely have these ratings. I feel like something is off since the most popular games have no ratings at all (i.e., Mario’s bros, Metroid, sonic, Zelda, etc). Is there a way to force syncronization of ratings, or have people really not voted on some of the most popular games in the world?
  2. I posted on the other Bigbox lag thread but I'll post here as well. I'm using Xpadder now, which has eliminated my problems. It's not the prettiest solution, and it at least confirms that the problem doesn't lie in my controller or receiver, but it'll do for now. Thanks @Jason Carr for investigating!
  3. I've been using Xpadder for the past couple of days with a lag free experience, which tells me that at least the problem doesn't rely on the controller signal making it to my computer. Only major thing I lose going this route is controller automation through Bigbox to close apps like Retroarch, Mame, and the like. But I think for now I'm just going to program escape commands in Xpadder and skip Bigbox's implementation of controller support. Thanks to those who are investigating this!
  4. @Jason Carr I had a bit of time to play around tonight. So first thing is I removed the media directories from Launchbox and loaded Bigbox. As expected all images and videos were absent. The unresponsive controller issue persisted using the default theme. Then I loaded the beta. Everything was running beautifully on first launch, going in and out of games. But when I shut down the app and then restarted it the unresponsive controller issue reemerged. It's sort of the same thing that happened with the prior betas where things initially felt like they were running smoothly but shortly after the problem would recur. I don't know if that makes things more or less difficult to figure out? Sorry. I ran the controller config recommended by @Z3R0B4NG and there was no stuttering of the D-pad or joystick, though I don't have a second monitor to run the config on simultaneously. Is there a way to open Bigbox in windowed mode to see if the controller input is stuttering while Bigbox is loaded?
  5. I typically use text list views only. I'll do what you recommended tonight about copying Launchbox over. Thanks!
  6. @Jason Carr I have since switched to the default theme and have all transitions turned off. No improvement. Are there any themes out there that bypass all images and videos that I can test on?
  7. I'm running Windows 10, genuine XBOX 360 controller(s) and wireless receiver. Controller lag issue happens with a single or multiple controllers attached. Using the default Windows 10 driver for the wireless receiver. In device manager: My driver is listed as “Xbox 360 wireless receiver for Windows”, date of 4/10/2018, version 10.0.17134.1.
  8. I can't tell you how many times I've prepopulated the cache without any meaningful impact on the stuttering, unfortunately.
  9. I'll just chip in the thread I created in 1/2017 regarding this: https://forums.launchbox-app.com/topic/35069-bigbox-lag/ From my end, I have 2 systems: one with i7 4770k, 16GB RAM, GTX 970, and the other with i5 4460, 16GB RAM, GTX 650. Both run SSD drives where both games and images / videos are loaded. Both stutter frequently when scrolling up and down using xbox 360 controllers connected via official Microsoft receiver, and no stuttering whatsoever using the wireless keyboard. Both systems run Win 10 and even with the Launchbox as the only software installed, the problem persists. I too typically use Powershell to wipe out as much bloat as possible. Also wanted to add that one of the recent betas that @Jason Carr created seemed to fix the issue but then after upgrading and then trying to downgrade the fix did not return, so I'm at a loss.
  10. I also think that overall, the performance is much better than in previous releases. The part that makes me wonder about hardware performance being an issue is that for me, when the stuttering is occurring, the videos are still playing, and it's still accepting input from the keyboards. And when this happens on an i7 4770 overclocked at 4.2ghz, I just can't imagine how this is a hardware issue, but I'm not a programmer so I don't know this stuff. At any rate, thanks much for improving the performance; Bigbox is far more usable now!
  11. @Rjay we have a very similar setup. I launch from Kodi, and I also use a Logitech keyboard, which runs every so smoothly, always, regardless of Launchbox / Bigbox version. Im back to running beta 6 and so far it is the smoothest version of the beta.
  12. Hey @Jason Carr, I reverted back to beta 1 and it does seem like everything is smoother. I'm not getting the stuttering / lag at all. I agree that the testing is sorta difficult since the behavior is rather sporadic. I spent about 10 minutes going in and out of games, testing the UI, back and forth and it seems pretty smooth on this beta. Going back to beta 9 makes it skippy again. Super weird! Edit: Just restarted beta 1 again and now it's being skippy / laggy. I don't know, you are probably right, maybe the issue was never corrected to begin with.
  13. I am having the same thing as well. Updated the new beta and now whether the controller option is checked or not, getting the stuttering again.
  14. I messed around with the default theme, unchecked "use all controllers", and everything is buttery smooth. This is awesome, you are the man @Jason Carr!
  15. Yeah unfortunately I’m still getting frequent hangs, and just like in the videos I posted, the videos are still playing in the background as if it’s just not receiving controller input for a bit. Controller speed is definitely snappier on the beta, so that’s a plus!
