Can't load state after an update

I can’t load the game after I updated Citra Nightly. Right after I click into the saved files, it automaticly turns off.

Save states are not a replacement for in-game save files. They’re a lot more unstable and tend to break upon new Citra releases, or when your progress is save state loaded and save state saved repeatedly. They’re meant to be used within single gaming sessions, not beyond them.

Regardless, you’ll need to load your save state on an earlier Citra versions that was still compatible with it. In order for me to find out what version that is, I’ll need a log file. Please upload one using the guide that the bot posted above.

The log file is incomplete. Make sure you follow the steps carefully:

  1. Open Citra, then go to File>Open Citra Folder (Citra>Open Citra Folder if on MacOS) and open up the log folder. Now keep that open in the background.
  2. Launch your game and encounter the problem; crash/slowdown/glitch and close Citra if it doesn’t do so by itself. Do not restart Citra as that will wipe the log of important information!
  3. Now upload the log file in this chat.

But what if it turns off immedietly? I can’t open the file then because it happened to fast.

here’s the code after the crash

Not sure what you mean. You open up the log file folder before you even launch the game. Just keep the folder open in the background, go back to Citra, and encounter the crash. After the crash don’t reopen Citra as that will wipe the log file. Now upload the log file.

So long as there was a boot attempt for the game, the log file will record it. Your newly uploaded log file doesn’t even finish logging the Citra settings that it records when you open Citra, let alone launch a game. Which means you launched Citra again after the crash, which again, wipes the log file of all the previous information.

I tried it once and here is the file, I’m not sure if it worked.

Sorry for the wait. this should be the build you need:
Download citra-windows-mingw-20221223-b588d61.7z from Release nightly-1823 · citra-emu/citra-nightly · GitHub
Extract it using Winrar or 7zip, then launch the citra-qt(.exe) found inside of the extracted folder.

Now launch your game and load your save state. Afterwards, save in-game. Now you can continue playing on the latest Citra build(s) by loading your in-game save file.

It worked, thank you very much.
