Black Screen when just starting the emulator?

For some reason, my PC frequently displays a blackscreen on the whole screen for a second, just when citra is running. This doesn’t happens due to a game, it is the emulator itself, since it already happens when no game is running whatsoever.

I disabled hardware renderer in the configurations and also updated the drivers for the graphiccards, but nothing changes :confused:

The effect gets even worse, when running a game, and just some seconds after the game started, the emulator crashes or rather it just simply closes itself really quickly.

Take a screenshot of the issue.

Please take a screenshot, and how much ram do you have?

I have 8,00 GB RAM. Here’s the screenshot:

Also, in the last days, the emulator worked perfectly fine. After i updated some drivers, the issue was still there but on the next day it worked perfectly! I also updated Citra to Canary 1208 without any issues. Until now. All what i did was just dumping another 3DS game and copying it onto my PC, and just some seconds later the blackscreen is back and the emulator closes/crashes again when starting a game :’(

when it crashes close citra and don’t open again, open the folder C:\Users\%username%\AppData\Roaming\citra\log and upload your log again.
