Camera flickering in Tomodachi Life

Issue:
Enter a description of your issue here, in full detail.
When I use the camera in tomodachi life, it keeps flickering and sometimes only shows one image of what had been displayed on the camera while also flickering. I have also tried using Citra Nightly, but it didn’t work either.
Note: When I open “System” in Citra and click preview of camera, its working fine. I also saw someone on reddit with the same issue.

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

  • You are running out of date drivers for your GPU. You need to install the most recent driver for your graphics card from Intel’s website. Support for Intel® Graphics
  • The CPU Clock percentage is not 100%. You may experience unexpected game speed.

It has never worked, as documented in this issue post here: Tomodachi Life camera flickers when in use · Issue #5903 · citra-emu/citra · GitHub

You’ll need to wait for further emulator improvements, sorry.
