FE Fates Lag in scenes and combat

I have been playing on citra for about a year now specifically the fire emblem games and I have about 70% on everything, and I used a laptop with an I5 and on my new desktop that I have been using the fire emblem fates game goes down to 2-20% on my new computer and would like some help.

I did not find anything wrong in your log file. Please wait for a moderator to assist.

Does the game run better at native 240p? Unfortunately AMD GPUs like the RX 570 don’t work well with OpenGL applications on Windows, you could try dual boot Ubuntu(Linux) to access the open source Mesa drivers which would boost performance significantly.

The other option is to switch to Nvidia, like the GTX 1650 Super(it’s important that you get the Super version) which has good cost per frame similar to the RX 580. It’s around $160 new.

If you are a hardcore Fire Emblem fan you probably would want to turn off combat animations so that should help speed things up :stuck_out_tongue:
