EasyWorship 7 running slow
Open EasyWorship and click on HELP//ABOUT EASYWORSHIP and let me know which version and build number you are running.
We will need some more information regarding the specifications of your computer. Please follow the steps below:
1. Click on the Windows Logo Icon (Start menu) at the bottom left-hand corner of the screen,
2. Type in "DXDIAG" and click on 'DXDIAG.exe' or 'DXDIAG run command',
3. Click Yes when a yes/no question appears,
4. Click on Save All Information.. at the bottom-right of the DXDIAG window,
5. Save the information under an obvious name such as "dxdiagoutput",
6. Attach the saved file to this ticket.
make sure that you are running the computer using a Performance or High Performance power plan
Ok, I added the attached file.
(The computer is indeed running on a performance power plan.)
A few things I can think of.
- What Version and Build of EW are you running? The latest is 220.127.116.11
- Is this a pre built or did you build it yourself?
- Is the 16 gigs of ram a single 16g stick or two 8 gig sticks? A Ryzen system really needs two sticks of ram configured in Dual Channel mode with XMP Enabled. A single stick in single channel mode and without XMP enabled leaves a lot of performance unused.
- What Speed of ram. You really need 3200 or 3600 ram for peak performance.
- Did you install the latest AMD Chipset Drivers direct from the AMD Support site or the one from AsRock (which are highly outdated) or even worse thru Windows update? Here is a link to the proper AMD provided chipset driver. The AMD chipset driver included special optimised Power Plans for Ryzen processors.
- For the Graphics card, are you using the latest NVIDIA provided driver (HIGHLY preferred), the vendor supplied driver, or even worse from Windows Update? Again you really need to use drivers directly from the Nvidia Support Site. I recommend the Studio drivers as they tend to be more stable as they are created for Production use like EW rather than optimised for games. I know that some people disagree with that but either the Studio or Game Ready drivers are much better than the ones from Windows Update.
A couple of other things to look into is to open Task Manager and keep it open on the control screen and watch high high the CPU and the GPU go when running a schedule. That could narrow down if it's the cpu or gpu usage that's causing the issue.
Also look at what your transition settings are. I have no idea what EW defaults to these days, but we have found that the Blend with a 0.50 second time seems to run the most smoothly. It's possible that somehow the timings were changed to something longer that is causing some of, if not all of the issue. That setting is found under Edit - Options - Transitions. Click on the type of transition to see options for timing, etc.
Glad to hear it. And thanks for letting us know.
