An error occurred initializing video core

Hello! I had my cousin (who recomended Yuzu to me) download and set it up for me a few days ago since I wanted to play Smash Ultimate. The day of the instalation (it was on wednesday) I could play a couple of matches no problem. Today I tried to open Smash and got the error mentioned above. I have a copy of the text from the Yuzu log which I’ll paste bellow.

My relevant PC Specs are:

-Ryzen 5 1600 at stock speeds.
-Sapphire RX 5500 XT with the latest drivers Radeon Experience has.
-12GB Crucial Ballistix 2400MHz DDR4 RAM.
-Running on WIndows 10 (up to date with all updates and patches)

If any aditional info from my PC is needed please tell me.

Here is the text I copied from the log.txt:

In order for us to provide better support, we need to see the log generated by Citra. This guide will walk you through how you can obtain the log file: How to Upload the Log File.

Your GPU drivers are too old to use yuzu. You need to install the latest optional ones.

I wanted to open Radeon Software to check that I effectively had the latest Drivers and for some reason it showed as if i didnt have it, which is strange. I’ll try re downloading the Adrenaline Software and Drivers again and get back to you. Thanks!

You need 21.3.1. Should be out as an update option in Radeon Software now, but manually installing it also works.

Yeah, now it works!

For some bizzare reason, Radeon Software dissappeared from my PC, which is really strange since I remember updating drivers and stuff last week.

Thanks for the help!
