Citra Freezing every few minutes. Keep having to restart emulation

I’m playing Pokemon Alpha Sapphire and keep having the game freeze on me. It freezes if I hit buttons too fast. And sometimes it just freezes for reasons I cannot figure out. I have to save my game after every battle just in case it freezes again. This report and screenshot is on Canary, but I have the same issue on Citra Nightly.

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.

Go to Emulation > Configure > System and set the CPU Clock Speed back to 100%. You should not mess with this setting unless you know what you are doing.

I’ll see if this works. I had not adjusted the settings since installing Citra. But for some reason it was set on 400%. Hopefully this works.
