Hi - i am using the same actions and file type/sizes as i always have, but my actions are now taking 1 hour rather than 2 mins. Any ideas?

Check from Actions panel menu > Playback Options what is set. It should be set to Accelerated.

What are your actions doing?  Are all action or just some actions are taking hours to play. If all try resetting your Photoshop tools and your UISR ID Photoshop  preferences.

Yep, same. For me, it's probably quicker to open each individual file and perform the actions manually.

Hi, is is slower only running in batch? what was the version that worked, and the one that does not anymore?

You can speed up actions if you disable the thumbnails in the layers, channels panel (maybe hide the panels?)
