The log file is incomplete. Make sure you follow the steps carefully:

  1. Open Citra, then go to File>Open Citra Folder (Citra>Open Citra Folder if on MacOS) and open up the log folder. Now keep that open in the background.
  2. Launch your game and encounter the problem; crash/slowdown/glitch and close citra if it doesn’t do so by itself. Do not restart citra as that will wipe the log of important information!
  3. Now upload the log file in this chat.

Oops sorry

^ This usually indicates an edited or badly dumped game. You’ll need to redump your game. Please refer to our game dumped guides:

Make sure your GM9 is up to date and that you have enough free storage space available on your SD-Card to perform the dump.

Your log file doesn’t tell me anything to alarming. Try redumping your game after updating Godmode9. Also make sure that you have enough free storage space available to perform the dump. Please refer to our game dumped guides:

I havent the slightest idea what redumping is and why i need it. I also read the links you sent but Im trying for a simpler fix .How do I delete the save game from pokemon x so I can start again with a new one since I have to mess with some coding programs which I don’t understand or have the time to learn.

Dumping is the act of creating an archival copy of your bought game in a format that an emulator can read. In most cases, this process requires a hacked console to perform the dump.

Redumping your game therefore means to do the above process again. Which in this case is necessary to check whether this is a dumping issue (or maybe your ROM got corrupted somehow).

As for how to delete a save file, right click on your game in Citra’s game list (you may need to add your game to a game directory for it to show up here) and select Open Save Data Location. Go up one folder in the file path and delete both the 00000001.metadata file and the 00000001 folder found here.

Your save data should now be deleted.

Thanks but I did a clean reinstall of citra and it works fine now
