Mario + Luigi : Dream Team Lags and Needs Rotation

Issue:
I’ve been playing this game with no issues until I got to a point where the game lags at 2-4 FPS ! (see pictures 1 + 2)

Also, I’m including picture #3 here to show that Citrus might benefit from some sort of screen rotate functionality because this part of the game is mostly unplayable!

Rotation is a feature that will be added eventually, but requires significant refactoring of our graphics code, it is not simple to add (same as splitting to 2 windows). The lag is because you are using a very low end pc with an outdated iGPU, there is likely nothing you can do about that, unless you’ve disabled features in your settings.

It seems strange that my processor is suddenly too slow when I hit this part of the game. What I mean is that I didn’t have any problem displaying 70 Luigis before this :neutral_face:. And disabling features makes the emulator way slower than it was before.
