Citra Starts and Stops

Issue:
The application opens then closes immediately. No “Insert game here” stuff. I just downloaded Citra and I’m pretty much clueless to what to do. I don’t think the FAQ tells me how to fix this.

System Information

  • Operating System: MacOS High Sierra
  • CPU: 2.7 GHz Intel Core i5
  • GPU: Intel Iris Graphics 6100 1536 MB
  • Citra Version (found in title bar): 1697, b3cab3c

Here’s what Apple sent me when this happened (it’s long):

In order for us to provide better support, we need to see the log generated by Citra. This guide will walk you through how you can obtain the log file: How to Upload the Log File.

This might seem like a weird question, but do you have a controller plugged in?
If so, can you try opening citra with no controllers plugged into the machine?

If that doesn’t work, you can try this earlier version that’s normally recommended for mac users, as sometimes they have problems with the newer versions: Release nightly-1587: Common: remove a mod from AlignUp (#5441) · citra-emu/citra-nightly · GitHub

I don’t have a controller connected at the moment. Thanks for the earlier release suggestion though!

Wait which file should I download?
citra-osx-20200707-bd7ee8c.7z
or
citra-osx-20200707-bd7ee8c.tar.gz (nvm)
