Citra crashes when trying to load Pokemon Y

Issue: Unable to load into the game.
Enter a description of your issue here, in full detail.
This is the first time I am using Citra as an emulator on my laptop as I have ran into errors multiple times before as well. I am currently unable to play Pokemon Y as there seems to be some error when I open the file. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated. :slight_smile:

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

GPU Driver Version: 9.17.10.2867

This driver is outdated, you need to update.

Download win64_15.33.50.5129.zip from https://downloadcenter.intel.com/download/29473/Intel-Graphics-Driver-for-Windows-15-33-?product=72055
direct link: https://downloadmirror.intel.com/29473/a08/win64_15.33.50.5129.zip

then follow this guide to install it: https://www.howtogeek.com/343287/how-to-fix-the-driver-being-installed-is-not-validated-for-this-computer-on-intel-computers/

Since you have an old GPU which can randomly crash due to a driver bug you might need to use Nightly 1392 until you upgrade your computer as it is the last build before the Split Presentation Thread change: https://github.com/citra-emu/citra-nightly/releases/tag/nightly-1392

Thank you so much for the solution provided! I tested it briefly to see if it works and it seems to be working fine! Will get back to you if any more issues arise!

Many thanks, once more!
