Citra crashes while loading games

Hello There. I am having problems loading any of the games. When I load one, it uses my ram a lot ( and I mean a lot! ). the fps counter slowly goes to 0, everything becomes slow and it takes a lot time to close. I forgot to mention that I have recently updated to the newest version.

I did not find anything wrong in your log file. Please wait for a moderator to assist.

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

  1. Open Citra and go to File>Open Citra Folder 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.

ok there it is

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

I can see a couple of issues that might be contributing to your problem. Please follow the following steps.

To update your drivers: Download (direct link) from

Then follow this guide to install it:

Furthermore, because your GPU has driver bugs, it’s best to this older version of Citra until you upgrade your hardware: Download citra-windows-mingw-20191214-ddb7ead.7z (direct link) from
Extract it using Winrar or 7zip. Put the extracted folder anywhere you want. Now run citra-qt.exe from the folder.

Lastly, because you’ve messed around with a bunch of the settings that need be changed back to default, it’s easier to just generate a new config file. Go to File>Open Citra Folder, then open up the config folder and delete the qt-config.ini file there. Now restart Citra from the folder and launch your game.
