TAStudio performance bug since 2.2.2 #1310
After the release of BizHawk 2.2.2, I have a huge performance drop each time I'm using TAStudio.
This largely depends on what action you try on which controls. The most laggiest one is handling the piano roll obviously and nearly anything that relates to it (number of columns, window size, frame colorness, etc). The most lightest one is simply pressing a hotkey binded for a TAStudio feature or doing things on the right side of TAStudio (play pause etc).
Tests done with the lynx core:
Unfortunately I fucked up and only 1 tastudio got recorded twice.
Left side BizHawk 2.2.1
Right side Bizawk 2.2.2
Tests start at left and then right (2.2.1 and then 2.2.2)
default config + no throttling + lynx electrocop + follow cursor a new empty project in TAStudio
BizHawk 2.2.2: 85-100 fps when doing nothing. 30-50 fps when hovering the mouse over piano roll with some speed.
Tested the artifact, got a little FPS back, better than nothing. No need to reopen, I will buy a new PC or laptop. I would say I don't have THAT potato configuration, but it's still old. Full configuration and settings of my PC: http://speccy.piriform.com/results/VSaYiF3pztwFD7noHkcWDDS
General performance overhead still remains. The lowest number I saw was 34 (very fast mouse movement over piano roll and even clicking sometimes), but I also had a little bit higher fps like 60.
