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

  • Please enable the Vsync option if you are experiencing screen tearing.
  • You have cheats enabled. This might cause weird behaviour or crashes. Please disable them and retest if your game is experiencing bugs or crashes.

Disable cheats, then restart Citra (important, otherwise they remain active). Now try your game again. If it still crashes, upload another log file.

Thank you for taking the time to help me.

After days of trying different things out, I have found out that the problem was that a mysterious text that suddenly appeared at the top left corner of Citra ‘YES DC’ was somehow causing the emulator to crash after I try to boot any ROM.

I found this fix on Reddit: FIX! navigate to “C:\ProgramData\NVIDIA Corporation\Drs” and delete the file named “nvdrssel.bin”
