Here’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  • You are running out of date drivers for your GPU.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 Intel’s website. Downloads for Graphics

GPU Driver Version:

This driver is outdated, you need to update.

Download from
direct link:

then follow this guide to install it:

it says that my drivers are up to date. I had it working for 10 minutes but if i put it in fullscreen it crashes and now it wont start and shows the error message

Upload a new log please.

Core_CPUClockPercentage: 265

Change this back to 100%.

If that doesn’t fix it then your log has a lot of memory read/write errors which are a sign of a corrupted rom. Redump the game by following the guides below. Make sure you have enough free space on your Nintendo 3DS’s SD card:

In some cases, changing region in Citra to match your game can fix some errors as well.

you see i am not using a 3ds at all because mine is currently broken. I think i have a working rom because my friend uses the same one and it runs very well. Could this maybe be me having a bad pc? thank you for your time
