You appear to be on an ancient Citra build? Granted, that game does require an older Citra build in order to run well. However, not that old. Download this build instead: https://github.com/citra-emu/citra-nightly/releases/download/nightly-1543/citra-windows-mingw-20200511-d11d600.7z
Extract it and run the citra-qt.exe file found inside. For Monster Joker 3 Pro, you have to use this Citra at all times. See if the issue remains.

Heya, thanks for the advice! Sadly the issue still stays, would you have any other ideas of how to fix this?

Does it also happen with an unpatched game? If yes, upload your save file and I can check if it also happens on my end. Right click on the game in Citra (add a game folder if you haven’t) then choose Open Save Data Location then zip everything and upload to like Google Drive then link it here. Make sure you give public access so I can download it.

Provide the steps to trigger the error from loading the in-game save so I can follow.

Heya, I don’t know if it happens with an unpatched game, this fatal error is pretty endgame. What I’ve found online is that the patch can cause this exact crash and that the way to fix it is to temporarily disable the patch until you’re back from the “flashback”. But I don’t know how to unpatch the game, would you have any ideas of doing so without corrupting my savefile?

Simply redump the game and don’t touch it (let it stay in Japanese):

I give you the benefit of the doubt that you didn’t pirate the game.

Thanks for the advice! I got it to work :smiley:
