No game was booted in your log. If you are experiencing a crash then do not open citra again until after you posted the log as it gets purged when you reopen citra.

Save states tend to break when you update Citra. Hence why you should use your in-game save files most of all for recording your progress, and only use save states within single gaming sessions, and not beyond them.

If that save state is critical, then you’ll need to find the Citra build that you saved that state on and load it on there, then save in-game. If you don’t know which Citra build that was, upload a log file after attempting to load that save state in your current Citra version. I should be able to find out which Citra build you saved it on from that.
