[Solved] Lagging with no acceleration on

Active Colors » August 24th, 2018, 4:56 am

Comparing to 4.2 r3111, having no acceleration turned on 4.3 r3237 slows down some (or all?) actions. Take a look at the comparison. Watch how the labels appear (by changing alpha) on the mouse over action:

4.2 r3111

4.3 r3237

(click to animate)
The lag can be obviously seen.

Code: Select all

Can I get a .rmskin of this exact skin? I'd like to compare apples to apples.

Hm.. There is certainly a difference with hardware acceleration on vs. off.

I think this is related to the other issues swirling around certain GPU chips, particularly the Intel HD 630 integrated graphics ship when hardware acceleration is turned on.

We are digging into it...

In looking at that a bit closer, I see pretty much the same "lag" in 4.2 as I do in 4.3 w/o HWA...
