0 fps freeze on Citra

Hey! I’ve experienced an issue where my games will drop to 0 fps and freeze completely, when it isn’t frozen it runs smoothly at 30-60 fps. The freeze happens frequently, and seemingly for no reason, making me unable to progress.

Here’s some issues I found with your log that might help.

  • You are running out of date drivers for your GPU. You need to install the most recent driver for your graphics card from NVIDIA’s website. Official Drivers | NVIDIA
  • The CPU Clock percentage is not 100%. You may experience unexpected game speed.

I have now updated my driver and put the clock to 100% and the issue still persists.
