Does anyone know how to fix keyboard lag?

Postby antonioflowers056 » Tue Dec 27, 2016 10:55 pm

Every time I press a key, it ends up responding after 0.5 seconds later. Example: If I press jump in SMBX, 0.5 seconds later he would jump and I don't want that. I messes up my gameplay. Can someone help me out please?

You should probably replace your keyboard with a new one, if you get the same lag everywhere else, and if you're sure it's not the game itself lagging.

Then it might be SMBX itself lagging. Were there any other applications you had on? That could also cause the cpu to drop.

That's probably why it's lagging, especially if there's multiple programs on at once. I'd say you should close all open applications when running SMBX. But that's just a theory, A LAG THEORY! Thanks for watching! (sorry)

I didn't read the question correctly. I thought you meant did I run any other programs and if they are lagging as well. SMBX still lags when nothing else is open.

Oh, sorry, I thought your problem was solved. Then its gotta be SMBX, probably too many sprites on the screen, or too much stuff happening at once.

How about you use a USB plug in controller to play SMBX... Maybe that'll reduce some input lag

Does the lag appear anywhere else on your pc? If not, what are your pc specs?

TVs can be plugged to your computer for bigger screens. In its core, a TV is a screen.

Oh man, I need to learn how to do that. (even though my tv is a pretty old one)

I do not know which TV can and which cannot. I do not know much about TVs myself, but that small detail I do know.
