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

  • Due to AMD’s poorly optimized OpenGL driver, you may experience slowdowns.
  • The CPU Clock percentage is not 100%. You may experience unexpected game speed.

Set your CPU Clock Speed back to 100% in Emulation>Configuration>System. You shouldn’t be messing with this setting unless you know what you’re doing.

i changed it back to 100% and it didnt fix it. it worked fine before when i set it to 80% i experienced some lag when i had it to 100% and when i changed it to 80 there was less lag.

Underclocking or overclocking is inherently unstable, so it’s the first thing we try to rule out when troubleshooting. Please upload a new log file with the CPU Clock Speed at 100%.

oh hang on, i pressed the ‘‘reset all settings button’’ and when i launshed it it worked. i still dont know what caused the black screen problem. u sure the cause of this problem is the cpu clock speed? cuz i cant play with this lag :slightly_frowning_face:

Try disabling Hardware Shaders in Emulation>Configuration>Graphics>Advanced Tab. That sometimes boosts performance for AMD GPU users on Windows.

ok i will try that. thanks for your help :3
