Citra Not Responding - Omega Ruby

Issue:
I load up Omega Ruby and it takes me straight to the Language option, skipping the entire intro and just stays frozen there. Then Citra stops responding and crashes the emulator. Starts at 85% FPS and crashes down to 0% in about 5 seconds

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

GPU Driver Version: 10.18.10.4358

This driver is outdated, you need to update.

Download win64_15.33.50.5129.zip from https://downloadcenter.intel.com/download/29473/Intel-Graphics-Driver-for-Windows-15-33-?product=64895
direct link: https://downloadmirror.intel.com/29473/a08/win64_15.33.50.5129.zip

then follow this guide to install it: https://www.howtogeek.com/343287/how-to-fix-the-driver-being-installed-is-not-validated-for-this-computer-on-intel-computers/

Since you have an old GPU which can randomly crash due to a driver bug you might need to use Nightly 1392 until you upgrade your computer as it is the last build before the Split Presentation Thread change: https://github.com/citra-emu/citra-nightly/releases/tag/nightly-1392

If that doesn’t work, try redump the game using the guides below. Have at least 4GB free space on your Nintendo 3DS’s SD card:


It worked! Thank you so much :grin: happy gaming
