Citra VERY slow (but it wasn't before)

The emulator is VERY slow when a few versions ago it was buttery smooth. I could play Super Mario 3D Land full speed (on the VERY same PC) and now its hardly playable. Same goes with other games such as zeldas (OOT and MM).

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.
  • LLE Audio is designed for debugging purposes. Using this option will slow down your game. Try changing to HLE audio.

Damn! it was the audio thing. I don’t rember having changed it!

Thanks a lot!
