Citra fps issue

Hey, so I was playing Dragon Quest Monsters: Jokers 3 and I had perfect fps, but when I move it goes to 10 fps but then it goes to 30 fps again (while moving) for 2 or 3 seconds and then it goes back to 10 fps.

Please try your game on this older Nightly version: Release nightly-1543: Merge pull request #5225 from FearlessTobi/port-3672 · citra-emu/citra-nightly · GitHub

The change after this Nightly version changed the core timings which this game didn’t really like. Performance should therefore be better on that older build. Just make sure to enable Accurate Multiplicationin Emulation>Configuration>Graphics>Advanced Tab as the older build had a crashing bug when that is disabled when the shader cache is enabled.

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

  • The CPU Clock percentage is not 100%. You may experience unexpected game speed.
  • You have cheats enabled. This might cause weird behaviour or crashes. Please disable them and retest if your game is experiencing bugs or crashes.
