Citra suddenly switches to what feels like 5 fps for no reason

Issue:
so for some reason, sometimes, Citra just starts lagging, which REALLY doesn’t help in a rhythm game, I have kinda found a solution which is just waiting for 2 minutes but I feel like it would be better if it didn’t just suddenly start lagging.

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

  • You are running out of date drivers for your GPU. You need to install the most recent driver for your graphics card from Intel’s website. Support for Intel® Graphics
  • You are using open source system files for Mii data. This will appear as your Mii having broken graphics, but will not affect the stability of the game. In order to resolve this, please refer to our guide on dumping system files. https://citra-emu.org/wiki/dumping-system-archives-and-the-shared-fonts-from-a-3ds-console/
  • You have cheats enabled. This might cause weird behaviour or crashes. Please disable them and retest if your game is experiencing bugs or crashes.

I disabled cheats and haven’t seen any issues so this might be the solution, now I can Space Dance in peace!

so like, it didn’t work, but apparently just deleting everything in the appdata folder solved it, so that’s cool (:
