Animal Crossing: New Leaf Crashing

Everytime i play ACNL it crashes randomly (game and titlebar freeze, Citra closes), around 10-20 minutes after i start the game, even though i have almost no performance issues.
Now i have to save the game every 5 minutes or i lose progress :moyai:

Hereā€™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  • You are running out of date drivers for your GPU.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 Intelā€™s website. Downloads for Graphics
  • The CPU Clock percentage is not 100%. You may experience unexpected game speed.
  • You are using open source system files for Mii data. This will appear as your Mii having broken graphics, but will not affect the stability of the game. In order to resolve this, please refer to our guide on dumping system files.

GPU Driver Version:

This driver is outdated, you need to update.
