[4.1] Slow Game Launch (any game/emulator)
And saves !!!
I´ve backuped and did a clean install. Strange, it looks even slower to open the games that came with recalbox. I´m updating to 4.1 to see if it gets better.
Im sure im using an original SD card 64gb, even checked via software.

I only updated to 4.1 and changed system language.
@Raphael-Bueno-Hatencia you can download 4.1 directly from here:
If after a clean install launching the stock roms is slow, the problem might be with your tv/monitor an the video configuration.
@paradadf I downloaded 4.1 img from the link. But as my clean updated img, it is taking more time to startup games them before clean install.
What video config I need to change? I use a TV Samgun FullHD.
@Raphael-Bueno-Hatencia I'm on my phone right now so I can't see your file. But there is plenty of info in the forum and the wiki.
At the bottom of the page, there is info about tvservice commands. Use them to find out your tv prefered resolution to change it in recalbox.conf.
PS. Your tv image mode might be the problem as well. Try using the GAME mode of your tv (if it exists)!
@paradadf I´ve tryed:
Because of the link I found my TV and the specs. Using hdmi_mode=4 everything should be 720p all the time, including the general emulation(default).
I can sense a little speed up, but the screen stills goes black and i can see on top of tv saying its now 720p, as it was already them game starts.
@Raphael-Bueno-Hatencia what's the output of tvservice wirh CEA?
Raphael Bueno Hatencia
ervice wirh CEA
I don´t know if understanded. But my tv output is 1080p.
I did change global videomode to default, so my recalbox is always on 720p and there is no change on resolution. I thought this whould fast things up but no, still slow to startup.
@Raphael-Bueno-Hatencia if you read the link I gave you thoroughly you will understand that setting video.globalmode to default isn't the best option (always). It defaults to the tv standard resolution wich might be very high, this the slowdowns!
So please, give me the output of the command tvservice explained at the bottom of the same page.

hmm I thought that by using only 720, that was going to be so CPU intensive. Thank you =D

@Raphael-Bueno-Hatencia first of all, your global.videomode should be CEA 4 HDMI.
You have slowdowns in SNES, right?
What about a bad power supply? Don't you get a lightning icon on your screen?
@paradadf Yeah, i putted back to CEA 4 HDMI
Nope, my slowdowns on starting the game is on any emulator, gameboy, snes, gba, mega drive etc.
But yesterday I´ve tried Dreamcast, and it ran super fast. I pressed X, recalbox zoom in the coverart, and dreamcast logo was showing on screen. It was instantly.
Not, i had that problem last year, but i bought a new power supply and the lightning icon never appeared again.
@Raphael-Bueno-Hatencia then it's related to retroarch only ... N64 should start very fast too
@Substring Yes it was faster than anygame that uses retroarch.
But it is a clean install from 4.1 image, and I didnt touch anything retroarch related, why the problem remains?
I did another script: https://file.ac/qmVg05xNb0A/
@Raphael-Bueno-Hatencia are ypu using a usb key ? Or did you just reinstall from scratch and test with the free roms ?
@Substring I reinstalled from scratch the 4.1 img using sd card and the first tests was using the free roms. Them I added the roms of other system for testing. All roms are in the SD card
@Raphael-Bueno-Hatencia could you try another tv?
@paradadf I´ve tryed in another tv HD, native 720p and it worked fine!
Them another test in a common pc monitor, All roms starting fine and fast.
I thought the problem could be a config on my main TV fullhd, but when I tested it, it was working fine too after the other tests, nothing was changed, not even a rom.
I really don´t understand.
@paradadf After turning off and on again, it was slow again!
I tried to change everything on my tv, hdmi ports, gamer mode, everything, nothing worked.
I realized that in my other screens tests, I used ps3 controller, not my ps2 controller with twin ps2 adapter usb. Trying without it, using only ps3 via bluetooth it worked fine!
So this is the problem? Maybe I should only use that adapter when playing multiplayer with 4 controllers. It was pratical because there is no need to recharge battery. Is there anything we can do to make speed with adapter works normally?
