Xow cpu usage

Anyone else who is using xow, check your cpu usage on htop (or any other program) it's a bit of a hog for something that's just meant to operate a dongle.

Curious if anyone else is getting core spikes like this.

yes its bec of libusb1.0.24 downgrade to 1.0.23 solved it .. https://github.com/medusalix/xow/issues/141

sudo pacman -U https://archive.archlinux.org/packages/l/libusb/libusb-1.0.23-3-x86_64.pkg.tar.zst

also edit /etc/pacman.conf to have IgnorePkg = libusb till libusb 1.0.25 comes out

i had seen that, but it seemed odd to me that the issue is a year old. Anyway, rather than downgrading packages i just found a usb cord that fits, but if anyone has performance issues this will be useful at least.

this is good to know. I usually have it installed because I like the xbox dongle better than using blue tooth but hadn't been using it since I installed Garuda just because I got a 8bitdo pro 2 and a 8bitdo Bluetooth dongle I have been using(my pcs built in Bluetooth has so much lag and/or missed inputs for some reason regardless of OS)
