I have an AM8 with an MKS GEN 1.4 board with a Bowden extruder at the moment.

What I would like to do is to make my menus a bit more responsive, similar to what the guy at Lokster Space has done with ver 1.1.5 of Marlin with a tutorial how to do so. I've been through the file ultralcd.cpp but nothing matches what the tutorial is telling you to change.

The following link is the details for the upgrade: How to make the Marlin menus more responsive on Anet A8

Could anyone please help with my situation.

Supposedly, it's no longer necessary in a recent Marlin version, already the inline bool handle_adc_keypad() function from ultralcd.cpp has implemented a smaller (100 ms) time delay. You could lower the value of #define ADC_MIN_KEY_DELAY 100 to #define ADC_MIN_KEY_DELAY 50 to see if that has any effect.

Also, look for next_button_update_ms = now + 300; (4 instances) which employs a 300 ms time delay after buttons are pressed. Try lowering the 300 ms time delay.
