View Full Version : Slow reading: PC is taking too long to read gfx on-screen. Unable to continue

08-22-2017, 02:26 AM
During your calibration session Genesis suddenly stops and presents the Machine GUI with the error "Slow reading: PC is taking too long to read gfx on-screen. Unable to continue"

This error is likely due to your system not having enough resources available during calibration.

1) If you have a high resolution monitor, try switching to a lower resolution.

2) Turn Runescape graphic settings down, close out any unnecessary programs during calibration, and if using a virtual machine try allocating more resources. If not using a vm, try Trent’s Tinybot VM; this will fix it if it's caused by the operating system. Additionally, try installing any pending updates (Windows or otherwise) and give your machine a reboot.
Here's a link to Trent’s VM: https://www.robotzindisguise.com/forum/showthread.php?25151-How-to-Minimize-Your-Bot-4-4

3) If you have edited the Environment, revert back to the default. In-efficient environment settings could cause this issue.

4) Finally, in order to improve performance on your system, try a hard Java Reset (http://https://www.robotzindisguise.com/forum/showthread.php?26416-How-to-Perform-a-Java-Hard-Reset).

Having the exact same issue.

Things i've noticed can help ( Kinda)

If native resolution is higher than 1920 by 1080 it seems to cause this error on my PC

If two screens have different resolutions it gets this error or gets stuck during calibrating for me.
