Black screen and Citra crash after installing CIA update (Pokemon X 1.5)

Hey guys!

When installing a Pokemon X update with a .CIA, it shows as “ver. 1.5” on the icon, however, when running the emulation it turns all black and Citra freezes completely, have to exit program via task manager.

When right clicking Pokemon X, going to the update files location and deleting the “00000000.tmd” and “” it works again.

Does anyone know why and how to fix this?

I’ve updated to driver v471.11 (latest) and also tried turning off Accurate Multiplication.

To describe it more accurately, the crash:

  1. Run Citra
  2. Double click on Pokemon X
  3. Shaders etc start loading
  4. After finished loading, black screen
  5. Citra works, but after clicking anything in Citra it “stopped working”
