First, check if you are running any of this software:
- F.lux: don't know what it is
- Shadowplay: i activate this only when i have to record something then i turn it off because it causes some lag
- Raptr: don't know what it is

Please post here if it affects you, with AS MUCH detail as possible.

Minimum you should post:
- What kind of performance problems are you seeing? Low framerate throughout the game? Lag spikes? How often? How long do the spikes last?
everything started when i tried some program from a happysticks video (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zWFIbap_h4s) "FixMyPen" aware of the fact that it was for tablets i tried it, even if i play with a mouse. my latency jumped to a standard 6ms and 4000 reports/sec; also while i play, the game keeps stuttering. I thought it was because of the program messed up everything (it probably did) so i reinstalled win 10 fresh new. it did solve the problem, but for a week only, then it got messed up again.
the reason why i'm posting this here is that on the fallback version the problem disappear, both with directx and opengl. also cutting edge has the problem.
i also noticed that very often on latest, fps don't reach 240 (on menus) and hardly keeps on 144 Hz (in game, i play with unlimited fps)
but the fallback isn't as good as the latest in terms of stability, so i'd like a solution :(

about settings and system:

- Is compatibility mode turned on in options? Can you turn it off? compatibility made no changes
- What GPU are you running on? Do you have two GPUs in your PC? Have you tried both? only one
- Are you running fullscreen? If not, please try this before posting. fullscreen and letterbox, tried every combination, no changes

processor: AMD A10 5800k
graphics: GTX 760
ram: 8GB 1660 Hz
mouse & keyboard: octane kit
monitor: 144 Hz 1920x1080
probably someone already posted the issue
well i am another person that have various issue with latest version
the major issue is that it forcing me on "full screen"
letter box option seems not working properly

other than that (which i consider minor) basically my setting is wiped upon updated to latest version, but this is kinda common when updating to major version
... i also database error (this notice show up after i roll back to previous stable )
havent look for more issue, but hopefully everything else is just fine
i hope dev. can take a look on "full screen issue"

We are well aware that there are performance issues for a minority of users out there using our new OpenGL-only release. If you are, try closing it and report back if it helps.

Extra things you can do:
- Provide gl_info.txt from your osu! folder.
- Switch to cutting edge and wait for the lag spikes, then include performance.log from the Logs folder in your osu! folder.
- Video showing exactly what you are experiencing.

I recently bought a new laptop(msi gt72-2qe) and Osu! seems to have Issues on it, Everything else runs fine. I uninstalled all the software that came preinstalled except SCM.
Your questions:
-Im not running any of those programs.
-I get lag spikes randomly throughout a song It sometimes happens multiple times in a song and sometimes doesn't happen at all. they last about a second maybe even shorter.
-compatibility mode is turned off.
-running a gtx 980m and the onboard intel graphics(4th gen) but the game barely runs on the onboard card so thats not really an option.
-game is running fullscreen.

Im on a very poor Internet connection(like 0.1kbps up/2-3kbps down).I have about 3.6k songs and 20-30 skins, using a logitech g300 mouse and a wacom ctl-480 tablet.

things I have tried so far:
-turning all the performance affecting options off(sb,skins, etc.)
-changed some settings in the NVIDIA control panel that other people suggested in other posts.
-quit all the other programs on the computer(steam,battle.net, etc.)
-updated graphics driver
-updated sound card driver
-uninstalled sound card feature program thingy(nahimic)
-uninstalled and reinstalled osu!

Extra stuff:
-couldn't find gl_info.txt in my osu! folder
-couldn't catch the lag spike on ctrl+f11(it moves so fast), I can try recording a video of it if its necessary.
-performance.log(couldn't fit in a box had to link to dropbox): https://www.dropbox.com/s/nvtl2or9jk4d5v1/performance.log?dl=0
-glview(wiki said to include this so...): https://www.dropbox.com/s/2x2lytntgk1st2v/glview-GeForce%20GTX%20980M_PCIe_SSE2-11.XML?dl=0

Tell me if there is anything else I can post here that would help.
I am using none of those programs on the list and shadowplay is disabled
I use
CPU: AMD Phenon II x4 960T 3Gh
RAM: 4Gb ddr3 ram 803MHz
OS: Windows 7

The problem I am having is whenever i play a map i will typically get a lag spike that drops from 240-140 and it last for about a second or shorter, this happens at least once on every map. I took a video but when it lags it doesn't register that I press a key so it is if I was holding a key down instead, the music however doesn't slow down, stutter. Compatibility mode is turned off at the moment but with it on it still has the lag spike. I am only using my GTX 970 currently. I Usually do run on fullscreen except for recording, this problem occurs when fullscreen and when I'm not in fullscreen

I could not find gl_info.txt
Sorry its a download link.
I made a video and uploaded to Youtube but I get the lag spike at about 40 seconds, I don't know how to get a better quality video.
Hello, I have some fps drop while playing catch the beat. The problem is during a song sometimes, my input lag is going from 0.7ms to 1.1 ms. And it makes a freeze aswell. That fps drop never stop until I did a pause in the song by pressing Echap. Its really annoying because it makes the game less smooth.

For information, I'm using Windows 8.1, the compatibility mode does nothing, disabled or enabled its the same. Reduce dropped frames is enabled because without it, it's like my screen shake. I use letterboxing.

Any solutions for fix this problem? Thanks.
Still having the issue "error while processing". I tried pressing F5, reinstall osu, deleting and upload beatmaps, and downgrade to Stable, and etc. Nothing works for me for some reasons. PLEASE HELP :(:(:(
while I play and do a song, my frame rate drops from 120 to 30 and for a few seconds are firm ... then I lose the song , I can not stand the problem
i have:
sony vaio all-in-one
intel duo core 2.94 Ghz
invidia gtx 240M with Cuda
4 Gb ram + 2 Gb
fix this problem please
When playing on beta/stable(latest) I just keep scrolling through song selection without doing anything. Changing to stable(fallback) fixes the issue. This problem doesn't seem to be connected to my mouse/tablet being bugged as it continues even if I remove both and restart osu!, (and since changing the version fixes the issue aswell). Problem is that my skin doesn't display properly in fallback.
It is really annoying as i can't properly go through song selection.
-ignore doubble post-
getting horrible stuttering iv never seen before and quite a bit of input lag aswell, almost unplayable for me after the latest update

CPU: I5 6200U
GPU AMD Fire pro W4190M

the stuttering varies from once every two seconds for just a little bit to freezeing the game for half a second, iv tried fullscree, windowd-borderless and fullscreen with letterboxing at 1600x900, 1080p(native) and 720p with the same issues. i have also noticed im getting pretty horrible input lag from my Intous pen and touch tablet after the last update, and that fullscreen only decreses latency when using a mouse and that it gets worse with the tablet but thats always been like that on this laptop. its amazing how this game runns worse then Paladins on maxed out settings(no MSAA tho that chomps VRAM) lol. hope there is something that can be done, restarting the computer didnt help btw

problem was GPU drivers that had been reverted to the foulty ones that came with the laptop, fixed it by installing new AMD GPU dirvers

Latest stable release.

Windows 10 latest build
I am running osu! fullscreen.
Current stable build is reading maximum hz of my computer at 60hz, and has incredible amounts of stutter. I don't know what to do, after toggling everything on and off again. Probably just going to revert to the fallback, because this is horrible right now. I also have random stutter on the fallback that is consistently frustrating. :(
Basically, OpenGL is not working properly with my computer, causing massive amounts of lag. It is reading the game at 60hz, but feels far from that, it should actually be reading the game at 144hz, what my monitor is natively. My mouse settings are on raw input, but it feels as if that setting is off and v-sync is on. This is consistent in menus and gets even worse when I try to play a map. I can see my mouse stuttering across the screen. It isn't a "spike" but a consistent sluggishness. This sluggishness involves everything from sliders to hit-circles. Nothing is smooth anymore.
Is this compatible with Nvidia G-Sync monitors?
Putting on "Compatibility Mode" helped a bit, but the openGL only thing is what is definitely causing it. Game still feels sluggish and nearly unplayable. I've turned on OpenGL in the fallback and got the same results as the current stable release.
Solution! I was right, OpenGL is NOT compatible with Nvidia G-Sync. As soon as I turned it off everything was fine again. The game is at least responsive now, but it still doesn't feel as smooth as it did with DirectX

I get a lot of lag spikes on every beatmap. They come in a interval of 2-5s and last for some ms.
And yes a already tried everything possible on my side (switching display mode and so on)

Please capture a replay or you playing with Ctrl+F11. This should open a frame time graph feature.

I'm having problems with high MS in the game, from 15-25ms constantly and it is impossible to play.
I enabled compatibility mode and disabled it and I have it with Monitor synch for the FPS

Hoping that you can help me.

P.S.: I'm desesperated because I can't play and I'm going down in osumania ranking.
Anyone with actual performance issues do not necro-post please.

About 2 days ago my pc was updating and right after the update was finished I played osu.
Everything seemed to be normal 'till I played a beatmap, osu freezed about every minute for 3 seconds while playing any beatmap.
I was searching for a solution to fix it, I found some solutions on the forums, reddit and other sites, I tested it but these solutions didn't seem to be work for me.
After 2 days of searching I still didn't found any solutions which seems to be working.
Here are some things I tried:
-Closed all background apps
-Re-installed osu
-Doing something with the command prompt (seemed to work for some people but it didn't work for me)
-Deleted all beatmaps I got (before I re-installed osu)
-Changed skin for 4 times
-Enabled compatibility option (seems to work but it gives osu more lag)
-Disabled full screen mode
And more which I cant remember.
After I tried all those things I re-installed osu again and now the game just freezes about every 1 minute for 3 seconds (so, not only the beatmaps are freezing, the whole game does)
I really hope you guys can help me. Osu is one of my favourite games and I really want to play it without any issues. :cry:
I just couldn't play because of the latest update. I've been getting lag spikes when i move my mouse, in the menu and during play. There's no lag issues out of osu or any other programs. I tried to switch to fallback, beta and cutting edge to see if it helped but it didn't. I tried to fiddle with my mouse drivers and settings in and out of osu! but that didn't work. The lag spikes would only happen when i move my mouse. This has never happened before the update. The problem might be my mouse but i don't want to switch to a different one cuz i'm so used to it and can't use any other. It might be my processor but i don't wanna do anything with it and make it worse or get a new pc. Please fix this problem. If you think that its just my pc or mouse then i'll just accept the fact. If it isnt, then i'll appreciate the help. Thanks for reading.

After this recent update i now have huge problems with note timing or input lag (I don't know which is the problem). I used to play mania fine but now songs i could ss pre-update i can ony score around 90%. My specs are far from great (Something like amd 4.4ghz dual core and a radeon graphics card, windows 10).
I really hope i can fix this :<
When i start Osu! its running normally with 240FPS and 2MS, but when i start OBS and trying to stream my Osu! i got 25FPS and 33MS (LAGGY FRAME RATE) :?
