Every game lagging in retrostone 2

Hi,
I just got my retrostone 2 and installed retrorangepi on it, but I've found that every single game I open, in any system, has stuttering audio, and I think it's also skipping frames or lagging overall too.

The audio on the screen where you choose an emulator works flawlessly.

Does anyone have any ideas?

Sorry about this problem. There is an issue that appeared in the latest beta that retrorangepi developper uploaded recently.

The gamepad is not working the first minute because something is troubling the boot and makes the driver load very slowly. Then the same issue makes the device lag.

We’re working on it right now. Hope it can be solved very fast.

Pierre

If you enable threaded video and threaded audio the performance is greatly increased. You can toggle it on the retroarch/all config menu

I hope there will be an update to the firmware soon please!

Just got my device yesterday and I was puzzled at first with the controls on the menu, then somehow managed to set them up, then everything had horrible hiccups and audio stuttering, even emuls and ports that were very light for the device. I used to play on much less powerful emulation devices back in time like all these opendingux low powered handhelds that could play most of the emuls without a problem. But if it's a firmware issue, I hope it's resolved, looks too bad now, I know the device can do way more than it looks.

Same issue.. installed the latest version of RetrOrange Pi (5.3.13_desktop_v2) and it feels like games and sound is lagging.
Threaded Video and Audio is already active by default.
