Bravely Second - Black Screen, 0 FPS

When running Bravely Second, the emulator turns into a Black Screen with 0 FPS. I’ve been reading previous topics related to that and I configured the New 3DS Configuration as FALSE in the qt-citra.ini file but to no success. This only happens with Bravely Second, this does not happen with other games (this includes Bravely Default, which runs perfectly).

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 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.

Bump as I have not been able to solve this.

Hm, memory read errors. In some cases you need to set region manually in Citra to match the game. Usually it’s a sign of a corrupted rom and you ought to redump it using the guides below. Have at least 4GB free space on your SD card.

Perfect! Works now. Thanks a lot! =)
