"Fatal Error" (Black Screen) [Android]

I’ve been trying for hours now to get Fire Emblem Fates to work. I can run the emulation, but every time I’m met with a black screen (with no audio) and a “Fatal Error” message. I tried to see if any other games would let me play (such as Shin Megami Tensei IV), but the same thing happens.

  • GPU:
  • Citra Version (found in title bar): bed6a4f12

^ This looks like a corrupted ROM. Seeing as you said this happened to multilple games, maybe there is/was an issue with the storage drive that you’re storing your games on. You’ll need to redump your game. Please refer to our game dumping guides:

Dumping Game Cartridges
Dumping Installed Titles

Make sure your GM9 is up to date and that you have enough free storage space available on your SD-Card to perform the dump.
