Citra emulator freezes upon launching a rom

Issue:
Whenever I try to launch a rom using any build (currently i’m using the newest nightly build" Citra just freezes right away. I goes from speed 9% to 0% and stays there. here’s a pic for help http://imgur.com/rulpaUg The pic shows bleeding edge but I switched to nightly build and it’s the same.

Log:
There’s no errors that come up in the console

I’ve downloaded the newest nightly now to test the game, it’s working as intended. Read the FAQs, I can bet you’re missing some system files…

How do I find out if I am?

You’ve these files https://citra-emu.org/wiki/Dumping-System-Archives-and-the-Shared-Fonts-from-a-3DS-Console/ dumped from your 3DS ?

I would also check to make sure your region is set to the region of the game.

OMG tysm lmao idk why this worked but it did!!!

Could you explain which reply fixed your issue? Will be helpful when other people search in the future.

I had my region set to USA but my roms region was Europe, and I did as you said. I made sure I had the same region as my rom did, so I just changed my emulators region to Europe (to match my rom) and it fixed it!

Did you dump the ROM yourself? We’ve had this issue yesterday and we assume that it was because people downloaded “modified” “region-free” ROMs from the internet which are not actually region-free.

All ROMs of unmodified commercial games which have been dumped properly should work (with auto region).

how do you change the region to europe?
i only see countries
