Constant frame drops in every game

Issue:
Whenever the game I play loads a different scene, the framerate drops to half, goes above my limit, and then goes back to normal.

I did not find anything wrong in your log file. Please wait for a moderator to assist.

The log file is incomplete. Make sure you follow the steps carefully:

  1. Open Citra, then go to File>Open Citra Folder and open up the log folder. Now keep that open in the background.
  2. Launch your game and encounter the problem; crash/slowdown/glitch and close citra if it doesn’t do so by itself. Do not restart citra as that will wipe the log of important information!
  3. Now upload the log file in this chat.

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.

Enable Accurate Multiplication and Disk Shader Cache in the Advanced tab in graphics settings in Citra configuration and hopefully it will smooth over time.

Do not expect buttery smooth, perfect frame pacing 24/7 though. Even i9-10900K would have some stutters in Citra.
