Citra crashes when loading Super Mario Maker

I have finished setting up Citra, and have configured my settings. I went to File > Load File and selected my Super Mario Maker 3DS File. After clicking this, I get an error which states “Citra has encountered an error while running the video core.”
Any help is appreciated.

citra requires OpenGL 3.3.

I know, my Integrated Graphics support OpenGL 3.3

i think you are using windows generic drivers, which can cap your integrated gpu capabilities, words from your log screams generic driver to me:

GL_VENDOR: Microsoft Corporation

i would use a 3rd party tool to check opengl supported version on your system.
if that’s the case you must install your graphics adapter manufacturer drivers.

If you don’t have a dedicated GPU, the onboard iGPU doesn’t support OpenGL 3.3, which is required for Citra.

Thanks for the help, I’ll just get a graphics card. I had already planned to do it, but I wanted to see if there was anything else I could do to use Citra.
