Aikatsu My No.1 Stage! QR codes un-scannable

Aikatsu My No.1 Stage! QR codes un-scannable:

So, I’ve been testing Japanese based games on the citra engine as of late and I’ve stumbled upon an Aikatsu Game (Specifically my no.1 stage) and everything works exceptionally, except for the scannable QR codes.

This game also uses the rear camera like Pokemon and requires extra qr codes to summon in items. The issue is, Pokemon qr codes can be scanned in Pokemon itself but this game cannot scan any of its designated qr codes, give it if it were from their original game cards (which i have in my possession and has been shown in the trailer that it does work) and 3ds qr codes as well. If anyone has a solution to this particular problem, I would be extremely grateful!

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

  • Enabling Accurate Multiplication is recomended in certain games. If you are experiencing graphical glitches, try enabling this option.

Hello, beside QR code, I wanna check with you if you experience random fps jitter when playing with the songs? I have no clue to find out the issue and fix it.

Hi there.
To answer you question, No. The game runs perfectly on my engine and nothing else is broken/not working.

You have a few options:

  • Check your game optimizations
  • Alter your settings
  • Re-install Citra (Use Nightly, Not Canary)

Oh btw, did you find any DLCs and if so, do work for you? (Extra Stages, Songs, etc.)

If you find a way to make the QR codes work, please let me know.

Thanks, Have a nice day.

Here are the steps to make a workable QR code.

  1. Prepare a white background png file with 1140 x 1140 dimension
  2. With your QR code, past it to the centre of the prepared png
  3. Configure Citra to use file as QR code source
  4. Enjoy

Here are some reference for you.
