Emulator Suddenly Extremely Slow

I was using the emulator and I had it running at a fast speed, but all of a sudden it started to lag, and then to the point to where the game was unplayable.

Using it on Windows 7, 64-bit id that helps.

Re: Emulator Suddenly Extremely Slow

consider whether the game entered a new mode which is more intensive and your computer is a toaster; delete your ini file; reboot and blow dust out of your fan; uninstall your streaming software or other desktop enhancements

Re: Emulator Suddenly Extremely Slow

I did as you said, and I got the game up again at the original speed, but then it slowly started to lag again and became just as bad as before.

Re: Emulator Suddenly Extremely Slow

did you really blow dust out of your fans? that's a sign of dusty fans. You may also need to set your system power options to high performance.
Did you consider whether the game entered a new mode which is more intensive and your computer is a toaster? You could demonstrate that by writing some of the relevant information. For instance, some pokemons should run fast until the 3d engine starts.

Re: Emulator Suddenly Extremely Slow

I did, although this laptop is brand new, it shouldnt be an issue yet... or maybe it is and I know nothing about computers lol

I had it at high performance. I'm playing a patched version of Ace Attorney Investigations 2, and I don't think it's from entering a new mode. First time the issue came up, I got maybe 10-15 min into the game, but after deleting the .ini file and having to restart it didnt even take 5 min for it to start up.

Re: Emulator Suddenly Extremely Slow

force it to always use discrete video, if you have the choice (not integrated); disable or remove security software; watch for junk running in the background. a new computer is not likely to have dust in it. a new computer is VERY LIKELY to have junkware running
