Citra stops responding and crashes


In both Citra Canary and Nightly, whenever i try to open a game, it’ll stop responding and closes. The log file is completely blank after the crash. It has been doing this for a couple days.

I have the same problem, citra crashes right after I try to start any games, the log file is always empty because the game just fails to launch.

@Donkition @MW149 If the log is empty, try restarting your PC. It’s hard to find the issue without the log file.


My PC has been on and off multiple times since it started, and it’s happen with every build that’s been released starting earlier this week. I’ve reinstalled Citra entirely also. Someone with a similar issue mentioned changing the information back on the system tab, but I have changed mine back to what I think it was before whatever update reverted it.
