Citra closes/crashes when attempt to play a game

Issue:
Like the title says, Citra crashes/closes itself whenever I try to run a rom.
It worked fine a few days ago (exept I couldn’t play on 30fps due my gpu) but now I can’t even try to play because of the instant crash/close.
Did it got messed up after my GPU update I made yesterday?

I have to admit, I’m not that familiar with Computer stuff ^^;

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

  • Due to AMD’s poorly optimized OpenGL driver, you may experience slowdowns.
  • Please enable the Vsync option if you are experiencing screen tearing.
  • You have cheats enabled. This might cause weird behaviour or crashes. Please disable them and retest if your game is experiencing bugs or crashes.

I’ve re-install the whole Emulator and tried to start a game (because it didn’t let me to open the cheats so I could disable them), but it still instant crashes/closes while it tries to load the game.
I looked up into the log and it got an error with linking shader or something, so it probably has to do something with my latest update of my GPU Driver :frowning:

Thanks to the fact that you said that the amd update did not work for you, I tried to download the previous version of amd adrenaline 22.6.1 and now it works fine.

This is the link in case you want to download the previous version

Download canary citra. Citra nightlin doesn’t work with “Adrenalin 22.7.1” drivers but otherwise you get a performance boost when using Citra canary.

that worked for me, thank you very much :slight_smile:

Update the graphics drivers to version “Adrenalin 22.7.1” and download citra canary, that will solve your problem while increasing the performance of citra.

AMD’s new GPU driver requires a workaround that is only present in Canary for now. Please use that in the meantime.
