But the game doesn’t open at all .
Citra automatically closes after i tried to click the game

citra automatically closes when i try to load the rom without showing any notifications or dialog box.

It looks like you accidentally reopened Citra before uploading the log. The log gets cleared every time you open Citra. Have the log folder open in the background first, then try start the game and when Citra closes, immediately upload the new log here.

i tried as you said but when i open a game it closes as if i’m closing it manually.
it does not show any notification.

[Uploading: error.png…](this is the one when i open it in 3dsemu emulator.)

pls can anyone solve this

It should still save in the log after it crashes, just have the folder open in the background and upload citra_log after the crash happens.

no bro i only tried as u said.
it does not crashes rather it closes like i’m clicking the close button.
pls refer the above srnshot

Hm, that icon looks old. Make sure you are using the latest version available at


Use our installer.

I know what you said, you didn’t want to listen though :stuck_out_tongue:

Please stop asking people to pirate content, and mentioning piracy sites.

Finally, with that name, it’s not a 3ds title in the first place.

sorry but i need a solution for this so only.
could u see the screenshot and refer something

i opened it on 3dsemu it too closes suddenly

We are unable to help you as it has become apparant you downloaded a rom from a website and didn’t generate it on your own Nintendo 3DS.

Feel free to ask again when you have dumped your own purchased copy of the game on a hacked 3DS.

Downloading roms from a website is illegal and is called piracy. Make sure you have read and understood the rules:

okay i will try when i have dumped

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.
