Latest Drastic version runs games like garbo

They used to run amazing on the last version before the latest update (pokemon games, radiant historia, among others). Glad i made a backup of the previous version though

Are you sure the settings haven't changed? Is this something you can confirm? In particular, the frameskip settings, since I suspect your hardware most games won't run most games fullspeed w/o some frameskip.

If all the settings are the same can you give any FPS readings between versions?

Yes, i made sure nothing changed. I made sure frameskip was set to max since games run a bit slow, but with full frameskip they usually run like a charm. But in this version games no matter what have a slowdown and FPS decreases heavily. I'm honestly lazy to compare framerates with both versions but if you really need results i dont mind doing it for you.

He's not the only one having slowdown I am to and its all games for some reason and you may think its because I use hi res mode but before this update it never had slow down or sound cracking this bad

On my end it's just the weird slowdowns, sound isnt affected for me.

We're looking back through the devices we have to see if we can find performance regressions on any of them, and if so determine why. I'll keep updates posted on this thread.

IRexPvpHD, do you mind providing what hardware you're running on?

CDavid, could you please check if enabling 'multi-threaded 3d' in the video options (and then restarting the app) helps with the slowdowns?

Which device are you using exactly?

Nope nothing changed after enabling it. Performance remains the same.
