Diagnostic Log

citra_log.txt (4.7 KB)

I did not find anything wrong in your log file. Please wait for a moderator to assist.

It seems you accidentally reopened Citra before uploading citra_log.txt which would clear the log. If you still have the folder open in the background then upload citra_log.txt.old.txt instead. Otherwise, redo the steps to get a new log and make sure you have seen the issue in-game before closing Citra.

Do you remember what you did prior to it being corrupted? I haven’t seen a save file spontaneously become corrupt. Cheats or save editing may corrupt save files so be careful if you use them. I don’t think you will be able to repair the save file.

I use a cheat that keeps 3d off. And I had played around 12ish yesterday and closed it. Reopened at about 3ish and i was greeted with a black screen and when i finally got it working again my save was corrupted.

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

  • You have cheats enabled. This might cause weird behaviour or crashes. Please disable them and retest if your game is experiencing bugs or crashes.

I see. Unfortunately it is probably RIP unless you have a backup.

Sorry for the inconvenience.

actually I got my save file from my other hard drive, so it only set me back about 7 hours.
but thank you for your help
