Moving / Dragging Windows Abnormally Slow since a Few Months Ago
Page 1 of 4     <<   <   1234>>>

I have a pretty decent combination of processor (Intel 8700K) and graphics (GTX 1080), but for some reason since a few months ago whenever I try to drag the window around it lags terribly as if I were moving a window showing its contents on Windows 3.11 using a 386 computer, which means something must be wrong but I can't figure out what.

Is that a glitch or anything that I can fix myself?

Same thing happens here. Very fast computer, it just looks like it's doing a lot of tiny little updates and can't keep up when dragging the window.

what OS and what versions of tixati has this been happening on?

what window is focused when you are moving/dragging the window around?

does it happen for any/all windows?

how many torrents are loaded and how many are running?

do you have any channels running?

try running the diagnostics cpu graph found in the layout menu. now move the window around and see what the graph looks like.

now run the graph for whatever section was most affected in the cpu graph.

I also reported months ago, that the UI of tixati becomes very laggy after some days of uptime. It also starts up slower and slower, until the whole computer is restarted.
This is the same effect.
There is no answer ever since... so i assume the developers dont know whats the problem.

I too have a beefy PC and have tried running only Tixati, then tried say a browser open or Netflix and even a game running at the same time. Every scenario still drags slow. Its not a huge issue as mostly run minimized and ope once something has completed. Everything else is great even minimizing and maximizing, its only when dragging. So it feels like a bug. Also tried with NO downloads and with 3 or even 20 same result. Happened around update 2.63 possibly slightly earlier maybe 2.62 but cant remember back that far really, again not huge issue BUT as others are having it on beefy systems (mine is) I thought i'd post for clarity.

Have been using Tixati for ages, its the one I trust the most. That wont stop even if this particular issue is not fixed. As its NOT a huge problem.

(of course running Win10). A fan of XP/7 BUT I think its a great OS.

I'm still experiencing this issue

It's a similar effect to in some games that have triple buffering or a lot of mouse smoothing. When you drag the window it takes a while to draw all the updates and "catch up" to where it should be. Kind of like a huge amount of input lag, but not quite like that. There is something more going on.

Just installed reinstalled Tixati on my computer after putting in a new HD and I am having this issue as well.

I'm showing about a 30% CPU usage spike when dragging the window versus not dragging it (from about 10% to around 40%), usage returns to normal a couple seconds after I stop moving the window.

Do not know when I started to experience this, however, I also experienced the windows dragging slowly. Experimented a little and seemed lowering mouse polling rate to 250 worked, however, that's just a workaround.

I'm seeing this issue too. I don't know when it started because I don't normally move the program's window, but it must have been recently - probably the most recent update.

I can confirm that the degree of "lag" experienced while dragging the window around is positively correlated with my mouse polling rate. I tested polling rates of 125, 200, 250, 333, 500, and 1000 reports per second (adjusted using Logitech Gaming Software).

When dragging the window at normal speeds around the desktop, the lag is not noticeable at 125, 200, or 250 reports per second.
The lag becomes easily noticeable at 333 reports per second, and increases noticeably as the number of reports per second is increased to 500 and then to 1000, with 1000 reports per second resulting in the most severe lag.

This issue has recently started happening to me earlier this week. If I move the mouse slowly then it moves normally as it usually would. But if I start to drag the window at a normal rate, then it becomes extremely laggy. Hope this issue is resolved soon.

here's a link to my performance screenshot.

There's no CPU graph in the layouts menu of my copy of Tixati but I opened both Task Manager in performance view and also Resource Monitor and then I dragged my Tixati window across the screen for about 20 seconds. Immediately CPU Usage seems to spike up to over 50%. Cpu usage increases in Tixati from the usual 3% to around 8-9% usage. No torrents or any other programs running, aside from Tixati. It also seems that dwm.exe the desktop window manager goes from a usual 0.2% cpu usage at idle to a whopping 23% CPU usage. Now I don't know anything about programming, but it looks like something about Tixati is bogging down the windows desktop manager.

I am using the latest version of Tixati as of writing this. Tixati v2.74 64-bit build

here's a link to my particular pc setup

my mistake. not the layout menu but the help menu (the yellow question mark on the right).

I just installed tixati and I really like it so far. I also came across the same issue with the very laggy GUI when dragging. Otherwise no issues. Here is a screenshot of the GUI diagnostics spiking during drag

The issue seems indeed related to polling rates of the mouse.

I installed tixati on my laptop using the touchpad and there was no lag. I then connected my Logitech G502 to my laptop and the drag lag was there again.

Gaming mouse, 1000 Hz:
my mouse have set polling rate 1000 Hz (yes. sending up to 1000 move messages per second)
tixati window is lagging behind.

Wacom tablet, ~120 Hz:
 tixati window is very responsive

Same issue with tixati 2.75 (as well as previous version) on win 10 build 20221. ryzen 2700x, nvidia 2070 super, 64gb ram
Looks like DWM is maxing out a single core while the window is being moved around. output from telegraf for reference.

Issue is not present on tixati 2.74 /2.75 on win 10 build 19041. I5 5250U, integrated graphics, 4gb ram

Issue is not present on tixati 2.75 on win 10 build 20221. I7 6700, AMD firePro W4100, 32gb ram

I am also experiencing this issue. Slow window drag. Windows 10 9700k chip
