Citra Fatal Error on Open

Enter a description of your issue here, in full detail.

Can’t load up Pokémon X on Citra Nightly, immediately pops up with fatal error. I’ve looked at similar posts, but the specifics seem to differ, so I’m not sure how I find out what’s wrong exactly. I’m not the most technical person, so if someone can help me figure out what to do, I’d much appreciate it.

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

With the ROM corruption point, I’m unsure how to check if this is the case. I used a batch CIA decryptor on the ROM file and everything seems ready to go (besides actually booting the game).

The instructions to dump ROMs from the 3DS aren’t exactly helpful, as my 3DS is 7000 miles away. The whole point of me using Citra was to solve this issue.

Well, your RomFS is broken as you can see in the log.

[ 13.971709] Service.FS core/file_sys/archive_selfncch.cpp:OpenRomFS:193: Unable to read RomFS

If you have dumped your game using GodMode9 it would be allready decrypted and ready to play. There’s no need to use any decryptors or whatever afterwards. So if you did that than you broke it by using that decryptor on an already decrypted game.

If you obtained the game any other way that would be piracy which is not supported anyway.
