I did not find anything wrong in your log file. Please wait for a moderator to assist.

It seems you accidentally reopened Citra before uploading citra_log.txt which would clear the log. Redo the steps to get a new log and make sure you have started the game before you close Citra.

There is also an “old log” that you can upload.

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

  • Please enable the Vsync option if you are experiencing screen tearing.

Update the drivers:
Make sure Windows 10 is also updated, you should be on 20H2.

Enable Shader JIT as well in the advanced graphics settings in Citra configuration.
