Well I've been using roadrunner for about 6 months now and I gotta say I love it. My only gripe is the performance. Im currently using the january 2006 release on my carPC. It works perfect and sounds amazing! It is however slow when switching menus, espically the first time I launch a menu. I thought it may be because i have a via board but frodoplayer is fast as hell on my system, menu switchs as soon as I hit the button, no lag at all. I would use frodoplayer except the sound frodoplayer puts out is disgusting. I was switching back and forth yesterday to compare the frontends and frodoplayer sounds like im in mono and my highs are very dull. I launch roadrunner and BAM loud and clear like im at a damn concert. Anyway my main purpose of this thread is to figure out how I can improve performance in RR. I want fast menu switching. Even if I run a plain skin its still slow, although not as slow as say the alpine skin. Do i need to upgrade my release to the april version or will this not help? Any Tips to slim down RR to make it faster? Like maybe to load all the menus in advance so they are fast and responsive when its up and running? Any help is appricated.
