Here’s some issues I found with your log that might help.

You need to load the save state on the version it was created on, then save in-game normally so when you use the latest version you can load the save normally and create new save states.

You can find older builds here: https://github.com/citra-emu/citra-nightly/releases

Save states are not a replacement for normal saves, you still need to save normally every now and then so you won’t run into these issues again :stuck_out_tongue:

You should update the drivers though, 368.71 is from 2016.

Hey man im pretty sure i saved on the newest version and just to be sure i still tried loading the game on the older versions but i still have the same issue,its weird because i save stated another game before this one and it is still loading.

Save States aren’t the most stable way to save your progress. Please remember that using your in-game save files to save your progress is the recommended way to do it. Ideally, you should only use Save States within a gaming session to prevent progress loss.
