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  • You are running out of date drivers for your GPU.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.
  • Enabling Accurate Multiplication is recomended in certain games. If you are experiencing graphical glitches, try enabling this option.

Drivers are up-to-date, Accurate multiplication option doesn’t work.

Try turn off Disk Shader Cache in the graphics options in Citra. It has issues for some users with some games at the moment.

Are you sure drivers are up to date? It should end in 5129 and not 4276 if it is.

@tywald i have a samsung laptop and all driver updaters says that im up-to-date, the driver is old, but even the intel website says that i have to upgrade through samsung website, BUT samsung only provides for my PC an old version ending in 4242, when i try to instal the most recent driver from intel’s website, it prompts an error message saying that my pc doesnt meet the requirements. Also, disk shader cache is already disabled. thanks for your answer btw

apparently when i restart the windows the emulator makes that error, then i have to restart it again for the emulator to work, i think that i may have some function problem causing this to happen, but if i restart the windows it works again, but thank you very much for the tips, also i will try to force the update. Really thank you for the attention man, and sorry for the bad english.
