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  • You are running out of date drivers for your GPU.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.


To update your drivers, please follow these steps: Download (direct link) from

Then follow this guide on how to install it:

Furthermore, because your GPU has driver bugs, you’ll have to use an older citra version in order to prevent crashing/freezing:
Download citra-windows-mingw-20191214-ddb7ead.7z (direct link) from
Extract it using Winrar or 7zip. Put the extracted folder anywhere you want. Now run citra-qt.exe from the folder.

Lastly, because your current settings are a mess, it’s faster to simply generate a new config file. Go to File>Open Citra Folder and open up the config folder. Now delete the qt-config.ini file found inside.

Now start up citra from the folder again and try out your ROM.
