7th Dragon III Code: VFD

Issue:
I am emulating a decrypted .3ds rom. My game immediately freezes/crashes once the player character uses a skill during combat. However, this does not happen when enemies use their skills.

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  • You are running out of date drivers for your GPU.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 Intel’s website. Support for Intel® Graphics

Actually, never mind. Downgrading to an older version of Citra (Nightly 1392) seems to have solved my issue. Go figure.

If you wish to use the most recent versions of Citra, which you can do, you’ll need to update your drivers first.

This driver is out of date. To update, download win64_25.20.100.6373.zip from https://downloadcenter.intel.com/download/28289/Intel-Graphics-Driver-for-Windows-10
Mirror download: https://downloadmirror.intel.com/28289/a08/win64_25.20.100.6373.zip

Then follow this guide to install it: https://www.howtogeek.com/343287/how-to-fix-the-driver-being-installed-is-not-validated-for-this-computer-on-intel-computers/

Now you should be able to install the latest DCH drivers directly:
