Bravely Default Randomly loses sound then crashes

Enter a description of your issue here, in full detail.

Whenever I go to play bravely default, I keep encountering an issue where the game will randomly loose sound, then freeze. Sometimes it can be when I’m in the main menu, or during a cutscene, or just transitioning into another area. The game will just loose sound, freeze, and crash completely.

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

  • Due to AMD’s poorly optimized OpenGL driver, you may experience slowdowns.
  • The CPU Clock percentage is not 100%. You may experience unexpected game speed.
  • You are using open source system files for Mii data. This will appear as your Mii having broken graphics, but will not affect the stability of the game. In order to resolve this, please refer to our guide on dumping system files.

Go to Emulation > Configure > System and set the CPU Clock Speed back to 100%. Underclocking the emulated CPU will result in crashes and freezes, such as the ones you’re experiencing.
