Citra Randomly Crashing

Issue:
Enter a description of your issue here, in full detail.
I’ve been using Citra for awhile now and this is the first time a crash happened to me but ever since it did it started happening more frequently. Just like today while I was playing Pokemon ASPH I checked my pokedex but when I tried to exit it suddenly stopped and crashed. This also happened to me on other games it would just stop for no reason and crash.

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  • You are running out of date drivers for your GPU.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. Support for Intel® Graphics

You should disable Dump Textures in Emulation>Configuration>Graphics → This option is only useful for those that are interested in creating their own custom textures.
You may also want to delete all the textures its dumped so far: Go to File>Open Citra Folder, then open up the dump folder and delete the textures folder found here (this will delete all dumped textures for all of your games).

Furthermore, don’t use save states to load your progress. Save states save your progress as well as your Citra configuration. This means that loading an old save state will also load your old settings and emulation state. As such, save state’s recommended use is within single gaming sessions and not beyond them.
