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

  • The CPU Clock percentage is not 100%. You may experience unexpected game speed.

Please help I can hear the Audio but my screen is black

Similar problem with black screen and sound, but no inputs able to be accepted so I’m stuck on my start screen too. Game I was playing is Etrian Odyssey Untold 2.

Hmmm, according to the compatibility page, your GPU (RX 570) had issues in the past: Etrian Odyssey 2 Untold: The Fafnir Knight - Citra

Maybe some regression has made it worse somehow? Sadly, we can’t test this because the new AMD drivers don’t work with old Citra builds…

The black screen issue started to crop somewhere around the nightly-181x versions. I’d thought that out-of-date drivers would be my issue as well since I see that often mentioned (difference though being most of the folks I see with this issue are on Intel drivers while I’m on AMD). I wonder if in my case even the most recent drivers are causing incompatibilities with recent versions of Citra.

I also tried to revert to old versions or see if it could work on the canary build somehow and neither seem to work unfortunately. Reinstalling seems to have not worked either so I’m sort of stumped on what I can at least do on my end.

Your drivers are up to date. So this is likely an issue with your GPU + the newest drivers and Citra. Given that there was already an architectural issue with your GPU and Citra in the past, I’m assuming that the new drivers haven’t actually fixed that. Hmmm, could you join the Citra Discord server and test out the WIP Vulkan build with this game? I’m wondering whether this architectural issue with your GPU is only related to OpenGL. If it is, Vulkan would maybe fix this for you: Citra

I’m having the same problem on my steamdeck. I have already tried reinstalling citra as well as clearing the Shader Cache and I am still greeted with a black screen. Citra had been working as of yesterday
