  • Enabling Accurate Multiplication is recomended in certain games. If you are experiencing graphical glitches, try enabling this option.

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

  • Due to AMD’s poorly optimized OpenGL driver, you may experience slowdowns.
  • Enabling Accurate Multiplication is recomended in certain games. If you are experiencing graphical glitches, try enabling this option.
  • You are using open source system files for Mii data. This will appear as your Mii having broken graphics, but will not affect the stability of the game. In order to resolve this, please refer to our guide on dumping system files. https://citra-emu.org/wiki/dumping-system-archives-and-the-shared-fonts-from-a-3ds-console/

So I can’t play at animal crossing, pokemon or others 3ds game ?
( I’ve put my log for some help)

If you want to play faster than normal game speed then unfortunately Radeon is not performing well with OpenGL on Windows if you still have only ~30fps with Limit Speed Percent turned off in the General tab in Citra configuration. You could try dual boot Linux(e.g Ubuntu) for more performance. The other option is to buy a computer with Nvidia.

Ok thanks that’s what i tought because my sister has a worse laptop than me but with a Nvidia and she doesn’t have lag.
Dual boot Linux makes citra faster ? I read the installer and it seems pretty big

Yeah Linux has open source Mesa drivers which boosts performance for Radeon with OpenGL applications like Citra. Here is a video to demonstrate the difference:

However it’s with RX 580 which is more powerful :stuck_out_tongue:

wow what a difference ! Yes RX580 more more powerful :laughing:
Ok thanks a lot, I keep you posted !

Have u try it btw? I have sama spec :slightly_frowning_face:

mine is very slow like 1 2 3 -1 0 speed also same

citrabot can you give me a video fixing these all

I’ve already told you what you can do about your issue here: Pokemon X Game crash - #8 by SleepingSnake

As I mentioned there, your hardware is incredibly old and ill-suited for Citra. So there’s a good chance that there’s no way to make it run at decent speeds on your device.

then my pc is a waste

It’s most definitely time for an upgrade.

i dont know how to upgrade my pc

In your case, you’ll need to buy a new PC. Your hardware is simply too old to upgrade to anything that I could recommend.
