Citra crashes whenever I try and load the game "Assertion failed! Shader not linked"

Whenever I try and load a game “Mainly Pokemon X”, I get a loading screen for a split second and it crashes soon after just fully closing the application leaving no error message other than the log provided. I can only run games when I have ‘Hardware Renderer’ turned off but this just leaves the game running at 10 fps and at 20% speed.

The new AMD driver requires a workaround that is only present in Citra Canary for now. Please use that in the meantime.
