Citra crashing when saving

Issue:
Citra crashes with no error message when I try to save my state on dragon quest 7. I’ve played 20 hours in to the game savinf the whole time but now it refuses to. I have deleted and reinstalled the app, restarted phone- the basics.

Save States break across different Citra versions. Since there were a couple of updates recently, it’s highly likely that that’s what broke them. You need to rely on your in-game save files to record your progress and preferably only use save states within a gaming session and not beyond it.

That is very likely the issue. I noticed my save states causing crashes in other games as well so the problem is not an isolated issue anymore.
