Super Mario 3D Land running very slow

For some reason, Super Mario 3D Land is the only game that is running slow, literally in slow motion. I can play Pokemon Ultra Sun, Omega Ruby and Zelda in 100% speed, but not SM3D Land.

Am i doing something wrong or this game isn’t playable?

Here’s some issues I found with your log that might help.

  • Enabling Accurate Multiplication is recomended in certain games. If you are experiencing graphical glitches, try enabling this option.

Unfortunately Radeon can be up to like ~3x slower than Nvidia for OpenGL applications on Windows.

What are your frametimes in like Ultra Sun? if it’s ~16ms you are barely within 100% speed :stuck_out_tongue: On my end I have ~4ms.

You can try dual boot Ubuntu which have better drivers for AMD GPUs for OpenGL. It’s pretty much that or buy Nvidia :frowning:

Looked at your screenshot, pretty strange to see ~9ms but 67% speed.

Well, here a shot of Alpha Saphire. I’m running on 6ms, very playable. I dont have Ultra Sun installed anymore, but it i think it had an even better performance.

But why this is happening only on 3D Land? Even Zelda works fine.

AMD being AMD I think, it’s a pretty common around here :stuck_out_tongue: Ryzen is fine, just not Radeon :confused: but yeah on Linux you should have no issues since the drivers for Radeon there are superior for OpenGL which Citra uses.

I know it’s not an answer you wanted to hear.
