Change detected in the games directory. Reloading game list


#1

When start Citra I get this error:

[0.000000] Frontend citra_qt/game_list.cpp:RefreshGameDirectory:153: Change detected in the games directory. Reloading game list.

Some advice?


#2

What is really the issue? Are you not able to load your ROM.


#3

I have this same issue. Citra doesn’t open and is shown as not responding (Mac OS) and periodically the log updates with

Frontend citra_qt/game_list.cpp:RefreshGameDirectory:153: Change detected in the games directory. Reloading game list.

The ui never loads


#4

Problems on Mac <- I wrote about the fix for it in here. Its a misconfiguration and its trying to scan your whole drive for games.

FYI for anyone having this issue, I’ve just opened a pull request fixing it https://github.com/citra-emu/citra/pull/2669

Just waiting for someone to review it and merge it.
