Whenever I attempt to open any rom in Citra, it crashes before loading the actual game, a few seconds after the black loading screen appears. Resetting all settings fixes this for one or two opens of a game, sometimes requires resetting all settings multiple times.

try to switch with Nightly Build?
Please upload a new log file.
Hmmm, please try out a portable Citra build to rule out a bunch of things:
Go to Download Citra - Citra and select
Manual download. Then under Nightly Build, click on your operating system’s icon to the right of the latest build available to download the build.
Extract it (.7z can be extracted using Winrar or 7zip) and put it wherever you wish. Inside the extracted
nightly-mingw folder, create a folder called
user. This Citra should now store all of its config, save files and such inside of this
Check to make sure that this

This seems to fix the problem.
It turns out that this doesn’t fix the problem, but I have discovered the strange bug that causes it. I have two screens, one of which is a drawing tablet. If I open a game on either version of Citra on the drawing tablet, it crashes, but does not crash if opened on the other screen.
I was losing my mind over this bug and this was the only thing that solved it, thank you so much.
Adding to this, my second screen is a common television, so I think the bug may occur on any secondary screen, regardless of what it is. It’s also ocurring in the current Nightly version (1853).
