I did not find anything wrong in your log file. Please wait for a moderator to assist.

I am also experiencing this issue myself. After the update, the games are unplayable and couldn’t progress from the start screen. The audio is fine, it’s said to have 30-45 FPS and ongoing speed, but the screen is black and there is no video output. I can’t play Pokemon X because of this. I thought the issue was on my part so I deleted my files for Pokemon Ultra Sun, Omega Ruby, and Y just to see if it was because of my files. Turns out, it wasn’t only me who is experiencing this. We are looking forward to be fixing this issue, thank you!

This driver is out of date. To update, download win64_25.20.100.6373.zip from Legacy Intel® Graphics Driver for Windows® 10
Mirror download: https://downloadmirror.intel.com/28289/a08/win64_25.20.100.6373.zip

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

Now you should be able to install the latest DCH drivers directly:
Download and install igfx_win_101.1191.exe from Intel® Graphics – Windows* DCH Drivers
Mirror download: https://downloadmirror.intel.com/691496/igfx_win_101.1191.exe

Your issue is probably also related to out of date GPU drivers (the recent change in Citra requires users on old Intel drivers to update). Please upload a log file so that I can give you instructions on how to update them if you require them: How to Upload the Log File

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

  • You are running out of date drivers for your GPU. You need to install the most recent driver for your graphics card from Intel’s website. Support for Intel® Graphics

This GPU driver is out of date. To update, download and install gfx_win_101.3222_101.2111.exe from Intel® Graphics – Windows* DCH Drivers
Mirror download: https://downloadmirror.intel.com/738230/gfx_win_101.3222_101.2111.exe

I already downloaded the driver. What’s next?

Did you also install the driver? If so, check to see if the issue persists in Citra. If it does, upload a new log file.

i did download the driver but it’s still the same

The driver still appears to be on the old version. Are you sure that you installed the driver correctly? Try installing it again and make sure to let your PC update without doing anything else on it.
