    PC: Xbox App in-game menu running slow/ lag


    Hi,

    The solution that worked for me:

    Open AMD Radeon software, click the gaming tab and add a game.

    Add your Xbox App game, for example Streets of Rage 4.

    I don't know why but for Halo MCC, I couldn't find the directory, so what worked was going to the in-game settings and changing the video settings to Windowed at my desktop resolution (1920 x 1080) and this doesn't actually make it go windowed unless the resolution is lower than your monitor.

    For some reason the game doesn't like being in Fullscreen.

    Be patient with the menu on Halo and hopefully you'll get through to the settings.

    That's it.

    My story

    The problem I had was the in-game menu's being slow and laggy. So slow that I couldn't even navigate to play, apart from Halo MCC.

    Halo in-game menus were laggy but whilst playing multiplayer it was perfect.

    I got the Xbox Game Pass and Xbox App and installed Halo MCC, Streets of Rage 4 and Battletoads.

    All of them had very slow in-game menus.

    My old PC with the same graphics card didn't have these problems, which leaves me scratching my head, the solution is related to my AMD software but it didn't happen before.

    My current PC specs are:

    Ryzen 7 3800x, Radeon R9 390, 16GB 3200 ram, 1TB NVME SSD.

    My old PC:

    AMD Phenom II X6, Radeon R9 390, 12GB 1333 ram, 500GB SSD.

    Reading the Xbox App spec requirements it shows you need at least a AMD Radeon RX 560, which was made in 2018.

    My R9 390, even though more powerful is older and was made in 2015.

    ... but that's the App specs, I don't see how that would effect the games as they all have their own recommendations.

    My drivers are up to date as well.

    I hope this helps someone with this simple solution and hopefully you don't have to uninstall, reinstall, reformat things etc. I've done that with other problems and I know it's a pain!

    For

    PC: Xbox App in-game menu running slow/ lag

    if your using the xbox gamepass version of the games most of them are hidden in an encrypted folder that you cannot access. basically what you have done is put the game in borderless windowed mode. not sure why you having menu lag in full screen in most games as that seems a bit weird.

    the r9 390 might be more powerfull as you say but it lacks a lot of the newer features.

    That's interesting, thanks for letting me know about the encrypted folders.

    I actually added the desktop shortcut link for Streets of Rage 4 even though the actual game directory path is hidden.

    The shortcut link didn't work for Halo.

    I installed Gears 5 just after writing that post and my AMD graphics software automatically picked that one up and haven't had a problem with it.

    I don't fully understand it but I'm just happy it's working now :) :)

    xbox menu running slow and games running slow

    Hello there @ElliotHollis, I hope everything is going well!

    Thank you for reaching Microsoft Xbox Forum support!

    I would like you to go through the following steps to clear the Mac address and then perform a quick power cycle on your console:

    Settings > Network Settings > Advanced Settings > Alternate Mac Address > Clear it and the console should restart. It would definitely help if you could restart the internet router while the console is restarting.

    After going through the troubleshooting steps mentioned, I invite you to perform a quick power cycle by turning off the console and then unplugging all the cables. After 2 to 3 minutes, re-plug them back again, then restart your console.

    In case the issue still persists, the next step would be to perform a reset on the console. To do so you will need to follow the steps below to perform a reset on the Xbox:

    Settings > System > Console Info > Reset This Xbox > Reset and Keep my Games and Apps.

    Note =>The "Reset and Keep my Games and Apps" option will not cause losing your games, but please be aware that you need to be completely aware of the email address as well as the password of your account before going for it because it will require you to sign in to the account.

    I also highly recommend checking the link below for further assistance:

    I wish you a lovely day, and I hope this helps you out! All the best!

    Kind Regards

    Stay safe, and happy gaming!

    Xbox downloads speed

    if you are running a game close it down xbox slows down download speed when a game is running to reduce lag.

    Xbox Controller vs mouse + keyboard

    I used to do a lot of PC gaming before my xbox 360 and find it is significantly easier on PC than xbox.

    In PC on games like Elder scrolls it is much faster to change weapons quickly (with shortcuts) then Xbox but maybe my Xbox is just slow. On Xbox being slow, I have a hell of a time getting good graphics to not lag on xbox versus my gaming PC but I guess
    thats the price.
