Citra save state isn't recognized

I accidentaly overwritten my save state on slot 1, but when I checked the states folder there were 2 state files the new one and the old, I’ve tried to change it’s name (old) in order to make Citra able to read it, is there anyway to manually load a save state? (both states are from Citra 1716 Nightly)

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

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

I’d like direct your attention to the the game ID in the name of those save states:
0004000000055D00 → Refers to your game ID (Pokemon X in this case)
.01. → Refers to the Save State slot.

So that save state is a save state of Pokemon X in slot 1.

0004000000164800.01.cst doesn’t have the same game ID. This is the save state for Pokemon Sun in slot 1.

If you’ve overwritten your save state in a particular slot, then that previous save state is gone. Regardless, you should be using your in-game save files most of all as they are a lot more reliable. Make sure to only use Save States within a gaming session, and not beyond one if you can help it.

Oh, I didn’t realize that I had a save state for Pokemon Sun since I don´t play that game as often as Pokemon X, thank you for the reply
