Wait! I think my problem was partially solved because I changed the power settings to High Perfomance when you mentioned it!

Leo Epitav, you have my thanks. I can now at least use MV ;)

I have already removed all M4a files.  The BGM folder only contains a few custom tracks, no default files at all.

I have a feeling it's an encoding issue. Can you try installing this by any chance? www.cccp-project.net

I still think the whole HTML5 thing for this version of RPG Maker was a really bad idea.

Especially after all the bad things I heard about HTML5 not being supported enough due to these exact reasons.

Heck, even people have problems with YouTube now that they switched from Adobe to HTML5.

A lot of people, including me use SMPlayer because of the HTML5 YouTube Player being laggy and terrible.

I also feel like MV should bring back the RTP style with optional

downloads for Windows RTP, Mac RTP, and iOS RTP or something

so everything isn't all bundled up in one big folder making everything look

so confusing compared to the previous makers.

P.S: Does Enterbrain not develop RPG Maker anymore?

They did a better job on the programs it seems.
The Youtube player is just badly optimized for anything but super high end PCs (and that's no guarantee either as some owners of those have issues especially with HD video), phones, and gaming consoles (as YT works well on the PS4 and Vita in the browser and I hear no issues with the Xbox One either, the 3DS one is terrible though, it works well on my smartphone as well).  Both Chrome and FF had issues with memory leaks with HTML5 video on YT.

I've installed it, and it doesn't seem to make any difference.

At the beginning of the game the title screen comes up without the music for a second or two.

In the first part of the intro cut scene the music changes, and there is a period of silence before the new music starts (in Ace it was an instant change)

A bit later when there is a change to a different map, the new BGM for that map doesn't kick in immediately, even though the Play BGM event command is on parallel process.

Could People Please Say What Version of Windows are you using?

Windows 10 seems to work fine for me as long as I have my laptop plugged in (fixes lag problem but I Never had BGM Issues or force closing).

Now people with laptops And Pcs should say what windows they use because I heard Windows 7 have problems with mv.

I have the same issue except it's a 4-5 second delay. The problem doesn't occur in battle mode so maybe it's related to loading maps?

Reposting my system specs: 

Mother ASUS

i7 2600k @3.40 GHz

16gb Ram @1600 MHz

ATI - r280x (latest stable drivers)

850w PSU

HD: 1 128gb SSD, 1 1tb and 1 500gb 

W8.1
DirectX updated, Drivers updated, OpenGL obviously supported.

Edited package.json with the removal of the blacklist.

The editor delays still happen, the in-game autotile fps stuttering issue still happens.

This is what happens in-game when using autotiles (it's an empty 40x23 map filled with the top-left water autotile, and no, the stuttering is not because of the record software, it happens everytime), otherwise it seems to run at 60 without issues, but theres definitely something wrong with autotiles, even Ace didn't have this issue even using higher resolutions.

-Default Res:  

-With Yanfly's Engine Core Plugin (1920x1080):

So, this must be a bug or a problem with the engine itself, because even without plugins it still happens.
Then there's the delayed sound issue too, where it starts 1 or 2 seconds after it should.

It seems like, when the animated tile changes (probably requiring a full screen redraw) is exactly when I see the lag happen.   I can see my party moving smoothly across the map, but each time the tiles change is when I see the party stutter.

Did everything as instructed, still lagging.

  • Lag during tile placement (Holding down mouse button to map, there is a noticeable lag between 1st and 2nd tile placement, then the rest place smoothly)
  • 0.5~2 second lag while switching between Database tabs
  • Massive lag when playing on a map with lots of autotiles / water tiles
I challenge anyone to create a 256x256 map, fill it with water, and then record a video of you playing it and walking around without lag. I think people saying that they aren't getting lag just haven't tested certain scenarios--for example, my first night with MV I was also happy to report no in-game lag, but I was just playing on small <50x50 maps with normal amounts of autotiles. Edit: Just opened VX Ace, made a 500x500 map with pure water, and proceeded to play it without a single frame drop just fine.
 
I will likely be seeking a refund on this software and returning to the makers that actually work. I have a custom built $1500 gaming PC that has no trouble running games like Witcher 3 on Ultra, having some dinky sprites walk around a tile based map should be no problem (and it wasn't, for all previous makers installed on this same machine)

First time I've seen the shelves full in my local shop in a while. Still no soap, though.

When you really think about it, the Trolley Problem is pretty dumb.
