Certain Text and Images not Appearing in Pokemon Ultra Sun

In Pokemon Sun and Ultra Sun there is certain text and images that won’t appear when playing the game, specifically at the beginning. When it asks what language I want to play the game in, the language options don’t even appear nor do the character appearance options along with certain letters in the keyboard when typing my name. It does this when loading from a save as well. Instead of a box surrounding the text, there are scattered words across the screen and no indicator of what I am selecting.

To update your GPU drivers: download win64_15.40.47.5166.zip (direct link) from https://downloadcenter.intel.com/download/29971/Intel-Graphics-Driver-for-Windows-15-40-

Then follow this guide on how to install it: https://www.howtogeek.com/343287/how-to-fix-the-driver-being-installed-is-not-validated-for-this-computer-on-intel-computers/

Furthermore, because your GPU has driver bugs regardless, you will need to turn off Accurate Multiplication in Emulation>Configuration>Graphics>Advanced Tab to prevent some graphical issues from occuring.

Deactivate Hardware Shaders in Citra>Preferences>Graphics>Advanced Tab. See if that fixes the graphical issue.

no it did not fix that

Go back to the same menu as before and this time deactivate Hardware Renderer. This will make the game run extremely slowly, but if that fixes the graphical bug, it tells us more about the problem.

oh thanks, it fixed the bug but how do I play the game? It runs super slowwwww.?

Try to see if this older Citra version doesn’t have the graphical issue with Hardware Renderer enabled:
Download citra-osx-20200707-bd7ee8c.tar.gz from https://github.com/citra-emu/citra-nightly/releases/tag/nightly-1587
Extract it and then run the citra-qt executable found inside of the extracted folder and run your game.

I tried this and it immediately booted with the correct graphics but it’s so slow it’s unplayable
