Cant play citra all of a sudden?

citra was working perfectly fine before. I was able to play games on it anytime. I lost my device for a few months though. Now that I’ve gotten it again, it says this every time

Citra updated its requirements recently, hence the issue. You’ll need to use an older Citra version until you upgrade your hardware: Release nightly-1782 · citra-emu/citra-nightly · GitHub
Download citra-windows-mingw-20220901-d380980.7z , extract the file and open citra-qt(.exe)

For your hardware, you’d want to also disable V-Sync in Emulation>Configuration>Graphics>Advanced Tab to prevent random crashing and freezing from occurring.
