How to make Animal Crossing New Leaf faster?

I had Ubuntu OS last month and ACNL was going on smooth 60 fps, but now I have Windows 10 Pro and average fps in ANCL is 40 outdoors and 60 indoors. I know that my specs aren’t the greatest, but if it could once run on 60 fps, and it can’t, isn’t it the problem of the emulator. Although, I think it’s because Windows consumes a lot of power.

System Information

  • Operating System:
  • CPU: Ryzen 5 2500U
  • GPU: Radeon Vega Graphics 8
  • Citra Version (found in title bar): 1629 Nightly, 1865 Canary
  • Game: Animal Crossing: New Leaf

In order for us to provide better support, we need to see the log generated by Citra. This guide will walk you through how you can obtain the log file: How to Upload the Log File.

No it is because AMD’s drivers on Windows have poor OpenGL performance. Linux has more optimized drivers for OpenGL for Radeon.

If you had a desktop computer instead of a laptop you could change graphics card to Nvidia to have better performance on Windows.

thank you so much, finally I arrived to a clear explanation
