ACNL Flickering Black Shaders

So, I’m having an issue with the shaders in Animal Crossing New Leaf. When I try to start a new game, in the intro sequence, the lighting and textures are bugged, everything is flickering black. I’m not epileptic, but it’s still fairly jarring.

I tried searching for a couple hours for anyone having the same issue I was, but I couldn’t find anything helpful. All the solutions I read, I tried. Nothing’s worked. I really don’t know what else to try. I’ve emptied the shader cache a dozen times already…

Any help is greatly appreciated, thanks y’all.

If Canary is not working for you, please use Nightly instead for the time being. Canary is an experimental testing build of Citra, things will break using it and will be fixed later.

On your comment about epilepsy, if you are epileptic you should not be using emulators in the first place. I understand you aren’t, but epileptic people should stick to the original hardware where they are can guarantee they will not come across bugs that may trigger their epilepsy.
