Failed to Initialize Video Core!

Issue:
When I want to run my game, it prompted me with an error message saying: “Please ensure your GPU supports OpenGL 3.3 or update the driver.” I found a similar thread containing the problem but the solutions in there didn’t help and the topic was closed. My driver is integrated and my GPU definitely supports OpenGL 3.3. I also tried dragging the ROM directly to Citra but it didn’t work either. Can someone help me?

System Information

  • Operating System: Windows 7 Pro 64-bit
  • CPU: 2.53GHz
  • GPU: 1760Mb
  • Citra Version: citra-qt-gcc-jit-sse3-15

Thanks!

You’re using an unofficial build, if you want support, use only official builds when repporting.

We only provide support for the Nightly Builds downloaded from the official site, preferably recent ones.


It looks like you’re running VMware (why?) and the GPU driver supports up to OpenGL 3.0. You didn’t even state your GPU so we can’t if it support OpenGL 3.3.

@hendryhu try updating you drivers and download the official builds they are much faster than the unofficial builds because they are uploaded daily.

Hello Leo121, I need help.
