Unfortunately, the card you are talking about is not the fastest ;)
https://www.videocardbenchmark.net/gpu.php?gpu=Radeon+X1550&id=613
but I guess your motherboard is still with an AGP graphics bus and you didn't have much choice!?

Anyway I'm going to give you a 'hidden' procedure to display your frame rate (FPS).
Once you have activated this display, you will be able to see how many FPS you have WITH and WITHOUT your graphic card.
If the numbers are almost the same, there is still a problem :(
  • Open "mGalaxy\Data\Preferences.xml" with a text editor
  • Locate this line: <advanced_showfps>false</advanced_showfps>
  • Edit it to: <advanced_showfps>true</advanced_showfps>
  • Save
From then, you will see the FPS displayed on the right top corner.
Check the speed of the Base theme and the 3D Themes WITH and WITHOUT your graphic card.
Report your finds here

PS: for your info, here are the typical FPS on a i3 CPU with an entry level GTX 750 at 1920x1080px resolution:
Base, Presenter, Presenter II, Stripe: 450 FPS
MyVintageRoom, MySnes, MyArcadeRoom: 100 FPS

first of all I want to thank you admin and creator of mgalxy!! good as I avia said that when you put a video card I would say how it turned. I'm a little sad about the fact that I got a 2gb video card and nothing has changed!! because it is an ati radeon X1550 series.. would have any idea!! follows attachment!!

Let's say it's MUCH better Elvis! (especially since your CPU - and therefore I imagine your motherboard and chipset - are more than 10 years old)
3D themes will need a bit more power (though I guess you don't have a problem with the basic theme or Presenter I & II)

If I were you, I would buy a graphic card, even the cheapest one...you should see an instant difference!

that the interface speed is slow !! I do not have a video card, only the one integrated into the motherboard itself. then I will pass her model ok .. it is necessary to have a graphics card !

the purpose is just one more question!! how do I make the inteface of the mgalaxy more fluid because it is slow. downloaded the resuluçao and nothing changed! any tips how can I improve this? my cpu is AMD ATHLON 64 X2 DUAL CORE 4400+ 2.30 GHZ 4GB RAM....
You mean that the solution provided didn't work ?
If so, how can you tell that the interface is slow ?
Wait!! The message you receive is when launching mGalaxy itself...or an emulator?

Concerning the speed of the interface, that is more A GPU concern than a CPU one. What is your GPU (graphic card)?

Sorry, the info I gave you was for Windows 10! Sorry for my mistake!

I can read here and there that you have to download this update:
https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=36805


From there, it should be all right!

Could you try this and report if that fixes your problem:

1. Locate "mGalaxy.exe". Right-click on the executable and select “Properties”.

2. Navigate to the "Compatibility" tab and check the option “Disable fullscreen optimization”. Press Apply to save changes and exit.
