I did not find anything wrong in your log file. Please wait for a moderator to assist.

The log file is incomplete. Make sure you follow the steps carefully:

  1. Open Citra, then go to File>Open Citra Folder and open up the log folder. Now keep that open in the background.
  2. Launch your game and encounter the problem; crash/slowdown/glitch and close citra if it doesn’t do so by itself. Do not restart citra as that will wipe the log of important information!
  3. Now upload the log file in this chat.

i am facing the same issue too,please kindly help me.

Disable Accurate Multiplication in Emulation>Configuration>Graphics>Advanced Tab.
Older GPUs like your GT 210 tend to not be able to handle this setting very well.

thanks for the help,it is working now

Just out of curiosity, why are you using that GPU with your CPU? Your CPU’s integrated Graphics card is superior in performance to your dedicated GPU by a lot.

oh well i didn’t know that till now

so,that means the cpu is better than gpu i have,so i can remove the gpu?i do know this is the wrong topic,but i wanna know the details

To give you a little background information (some of which may seem basic to you):
Your GPU is providing the frames that are pushed to your monitor. This is what allows you to ‘‘see’’ things. It also calculates the graphical parts of most programs (games, videos, ect.).

Your CPU does the main legwork of computer calculations, and whilst it’s good at a lot of things, it’s pretty bad at computing stuff like graphics and and the like. Hence why a GPU is needed.

Your specific CPU model, the Intel(R) Core(TM) i3-8100 CPU @ 3.60GHz, also has access to a so called iGPU, which is short for Integrated GPU (meaning it is a GPU that is packed together or inside the CPU)
This used to be just for people without a dedicated GPU to still be able to get a picture on the monitor to use. Nowadays, they’ve gotten pretty good. To the point that these CPU + iGPU chips have better GPU performance than older dedicated GPUs like the one you’re currently using.

Not really too odd, considering:
Your CPU (Intel(R) Core™ i3-8100 CPU @ 3.60GHz): Released in 2017
Your GPU (NVIDIA GT 210): Released in 2009

Performance has come a long way since then.

As for how to remove the dedicated GPU, that goes a bit beyond Citra Support. What you can do without actually removing the dedicated GPU is manually tell programs to run on your iGPU instead:
Shut down your computer and take a look at the back of your computer. It should look something like this:


Your display (monitor) is currently connected to your dedicated GPU’s display connector, which means your PC will use your dedicated GPU for it’s graphical processing.
You should connect your monitor to your motherboard’s display connectors. That way, it will use your CPU’s, in this case, superior integrated GPU for your PC’s graphical processing.

Turn your PC on again after connecting your display to your motherboard. If it doesn’t show you an image, then your integrated GPU is likely disabled in your motherboard’s bios → which would mean you’d have to look up a tutorial on how to turn it on for your specific motherboard.
If it boots right away → great.
You should upload a Citra log file after using Citra for a bit on your iGPU so I can see what GPU driver version is installed for it. I would be able to provide you with the right drivers and instructions to update it to the latest version available for some extra performance.

Ofcourse, this is all optional. If you’d rather wish to have someone more tech savvy with you when doing something like this, or you just don’t want to go through the hassle, that’s completely fine. It’s up to you.

Well thanks, that was very informative I will do this as soon as possible

i have the same problem when like deleting the save thingy, because it continuously says its coirrupted citra_log.txt (21.6 KB)

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

  • Due to AMD’s poorly optimized OpenGL driver, you may experience slowdowns.

What do I do with that though? Do I update that in the log?

Okay so is this what I have to do?

“same problem”? None of the previous messages were about save files or the like so I’m not sure what you’re referring to. Could you elaborate on your problem?

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
  • You have cheats enabled. This might cause weird behaviour or crashes. Please disable them and retest if your game is experiencing bugs or crashes.

Good evening I have tried all of the above but it still doesn’t work any help is appreciated.
