Config File problems with Command Line Citra

I’m am running citra from a frontend per command line and understand that citra.exe (as opposed to citra-qt.exe) is the correct app to choose. But how can I configure citra.exe?

  • I understand that \appdata…\config\qt-config.ini is used in citra-qt.exe
  • I tried \appdata…\config\sdl2-config.ini but with no luck

Is sdl2-config.ini the correct config file for citra.exe?
If yes, how should I enter input mappings (c&p’d them from citra-qt.exe but they don’t work)?

Thanks for helping me out!

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  • You are running out of date drivers for your GPU.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 NVIDIA’s website.
  • Enabling Accurate Multiplication is recomended in certain games. If you are experiencing graphical glitches, try enabling this option.

After some more tinkering I can confirm sdl2-config.ini to be the correct config file.
However, my input mappings do not work. I input them as


for example. What did I do wrong?

Thanks for any suggestions.
