Citra won't let me select a game, or even change my game directory folder

my singular game (monster hunter 4U) suddendly got greyed out and does not allow me to launch it, no matter how long i wait. about every 5 seconds, it seems like the game directory refreshes. it doesnt allow me to click on anything except the tabs at the top of the app pretty much.
on the off change it DOES stop refreshing and the game stops being greyed out on the game directory menu, citris crashes after a few seconds

correct, no game was booted. thats the ISSUE, it wont let me boot one

This can happen if you install Citra on a remote folder (such as onedrive). If so, reinstall Citra to a local folder instead.
