Citra Crash after running rom

Whenever I run a ROM on Citra, it just crashes. Besides the information below, I also have OpenGl 4.0 which is higher than the requirement needed (OpenGl 3.3). Please solve my problem so that I can play Citra, especially Pokemon.

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

  • Enabling Accurate Multiplication is recomended in certain games. If you are experiencing graphical glitches, try enabling this option.

Should I enable Hardware Shader or Accurate Multiplicaion on Log or in the Emulation window. Also, I have OpenGl 4.0 and not 3.3.

Your GPU driver is outdated, download and install the latest from Intel’s website.

I enabled Accurate Multiplication but still it crashes :confused:

Is it free or not? I dont have a credit card :stuck_out_tongue:

Disable ‘Enable Hardware Shader’ before launching the game if updating your GPU driver doesn’t work.

I have downloaded the driver but it doesnt open for installation
