You’ve disabled Hardware Renderer in Citra>Preferences>Graphics>Advanced Tab. Turn that back on.

Additionally, you have upscaled 4x, which is a bit much for your integrated GPU. Set that to 2x maximum (option found in the graphics settings; Internal Resolution).

Thanks for helping! I made changes both per your suggestion and it made no difference to the speed :frowning:

Apologies, I missed a setting. Go to Emulation>Configuration>Graphics>Advanced Tab and enable Shader JIT. I must be tired to have missed that one lol.

Thanks I appreciate the help. I think it’s helping but speed now goes from 0% to like 88% and back to 0% every 2 seconds. I just restarted my computer to see if it helps but no luck.

Odd. Maybe there’s something else that I missed. Just for sanity’s sake, try resetting all settings:
Go to Citra>Preferences>General and select Reset All Settings. Then test your game out.

Done. It gets stuck at 0% for a bit and then goes up to 80-101% and back.

You think my computer just sucks lol?

Technically, your hardware meets minimum spec (barely). But we also need to take into account that this is MacOS…
Not sure what else we can try, sorry.

Thanks a lot! Appreciate your time
