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

  • Enabling Accurate Multiplication is recomended in certain games. If you are experiencing graphical glitches, try enabling this option.

Try these two builds:

Hi tywald.

How do I install / unpack the builds from above? Sorry I am a complete computer noob.

I unzipped both builds and ran the citra-qt executable. I still get the same error as per when I posted.

Download citra-osx-20200707-f4e727c.tar.gz and citra-osx-20200707-bd7ee8c.tar.gz from the links. MacOS already have tools (e.g Archive Utility) to open those archives. It should extract by simply double clicking on the files.

I still get the same errors, though. Citra still crashes after I run Pokemon Y

Try redump the game using the guides below. Make sure you have enough space on your Nintendo 3DS’s SD card:

It is recommended that you dump the update as well so you won’t have the save glitch:

3DS card?? I’m running the citra emulator on macbook.

Nintendo 3DS stores data on an SD-card, when you dump your purchased games with like godmode9 it will save the dump on the SD-card then you transfer it to your Mac (which you should have tried to do already since you said you tried to run Pokémon Y).

I give you the benefit of the doubt that you didn’t pirate the game which would be illegal, take a look at the guides above so you can get the game from your Nintendo 3DS to your MacBook properly.
