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

  • Due to AMD’s poorly optimized OpenGL driver, you may experience slowdowns.

Download citra canary

The “Adrenalin 22.7.1” drivers cause citra nightly to crash when running a game, but they work perfectly on Citra Canary while greatly increasing performance.

I am using canary. Also tried nightly but its worse

I am using canary. any other idea how to fix this?

Lets rule out an issue with your current Citra installation or appdata first:

Go to Download Citra - Citra and select Manual download. Then under Canary Build, click on your operating system’s icon to the right of the latest build available to download the build.
Extract it (.7z can be extracted using Winrar or 7zip) and put it where ever you wish. Inside the extracted canary-mingw folder, create a folder called user. This Citra should now store all of its config, save files and such inside of this user folder.
Check to make sure that this user folder is in the same folder that contains citra-qt(.exe)
Now run the citra-qt executable found inside of the mingw folder and run your game. If you encounter the same issue as on your regular Citra version, upload a log file using this portable build.
