i cant upload it beacause it just hangs and freezes at the start and i cant open the log file so…

Have the log folder in the background first, after the game hangs close Citra (kill the process if you have to) then immediately upload the log file here.

Ok I will do it today

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

  • You are running out of date drivers for your GPU. You need to install the most recent driver for your graphics card from Intel’s website.
  • LLE Audio is designed for debugging purposes. Using this option will slow down your game. Try changing to HLE audio.

Can you tell me how to change the audio I really can’t understand it :neutral_face::neutral_face: and I have downloaded the drive already and also how to install it :grin::grin:
can i download it and install ?

Go to Emulation->Configure…->Audio tab and change LLE back to HLE there.

GPU Driver Version:

This driver is outdated, you need to update.

Download from
direct link:

then follow this guide to install it:

In addition, you should turn off New 3DS mode in the System tab in Citra configuration to see if that prevents some random crashes. If it doesn’t help, use this older Nightly build:

It worked !!! Thanks for helping but will it work if I play other games like pokemon ultra sun ???

Nightly 1392 should work with that game as well.
