plus plus slow.

Post by daveyvegas » February 12th, 2018, 8:17 am

Hi just wondering can someone please help me.
I've been running plus plus for about 2 years with about 1500 roms and a large amount of snaps and icons with no issues. I have downloaded most of these individually over the years from well know rom sites. The problem is that a recently downloaded a rom set file contain a large amount of roms . I put all the zip files in the rom file and performed an audit as normal . The problem is plus plus works painfully slowly.. All the games work but to scroll down the games list takes decades.!!! I have tried removing the recently added roms and performing an audit but the problem still remains..
Can someone plz help..
Thanks

That's cool, I also use the same version. Besides deleting a few CHDs I never use to save space, I basically have full ROM set for it and there is no lag when scrolling the game lists. I'm pretty sure that my 0.119 had a major meltdown sometime in the distant past and got corrupted beyond repair. The only way I could fix it was to grab a fresh copy from the Kaillera site:

http://www.kaillera.com/download.php

Of course, if you do end up going down that route, make sure to save your ROMs and variables like CFG, NVRAM, INI, etc. Add everything back into the fresh copy of 0.119 and see how it goes from there.
