bigbox is truly annoying me


Recommended Posts

Ok I am just wondering if there is some secret setup for Bigbox to run smooth each time because when I first started using it np at all i mean none...

Now it's laggy as hell choppy rough transitions startup video loops like crazy before ever opening up to big box... I mea damn enough!

 

with what i am running no way should I be dealing with these issues... Alienware custom built laptop and Alienware alpha gaming console... bigbox is slow and choppy on both systems wth.

It's also worth asking what the size of your library is, how many images and videos did you grab, if your install is done caching, and if you have a GPU. Your GPU isn't a slouch for mobile, but it's still a mobile CPU, and if you don't have a GPU, then the more and more you add to your library, the more and more it needs to load. If you only have a CPU, then the CPU is doing two jobs at once instead of 1. It's also worth noting that a GPU plays a bigger factor in to Big Box than it does LaunchBox.

Well yea, your higher end gaming centric PC has a GPU, you should never buy a "gaming device" without a GPU and CPU. In this case though, your Laptop may have been top of the line previously, but now it's not and there is no GPU available to help. At a certain point hardware becomes too weak. Mine and my wifes PC could handle Big Box well, but her old PC, even though it has a GPU and CPU in it, I would be afraid to load BB on it for fear of it catching fire.
