Black screen on Citra Mac

Every time I try to load up the ROM for Tomodachi Life, sound comes on but the screen turns black. I tired disabling the Hardware sharer but it still doesn’t work. I’ve tried countless other methods but the game still won’t run properly. The weird thing is that one of the times, the game actually did load perfectly fine but I have no idea why it won’t work now after I closed out of it. Please Help!

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

  • Enabling Accurate Multiplication is recomended in certain games. If you are experiencing graphical glitches, try enabling this option.
  • You have GDB debugging enabled. This will cause Citra not to launch games. This is only intended for debugging purposes and should be disabled in settings.

this did not help. it still does not work

Deactivate GDB Stub. Also try to resize your window after launching your game.

resizing the window worked! Thank you so much.
