Black screen after latest update

I just booted Citra today, updated it, and tried to open Final Fantasy Explorers. I can hear the audio, but the screen is pitch black. I tried toggling the shaders and other graphical settings, but nothing changed.

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

Since you have a desktop CPU i7-7700 and you mentioned you have GTX 1060 3GB then if Citra is using your iGPU instead that means you haven’t connected your monitor to the graphics card and instead connected it to the motherboard.

Reconnect the monitor to the graphics card then start Citra and see if that fixed it.

That worked! I had to look up some other guides to, uh… figure out what you were talking about, but it worked! Incidentally, swapping my monitor input also caused other games to work better, too (like Dark Souls III).

I see, yeah every game was using iGPU and not Nvidia before it looks like :stuck_out_tongue:
