FE Echoes bad performance in EU version

Issue:
So, I’m playing this game with both builds Canary and Nightly of Citra, but I have a terrible performance in the game, dropping my FPS to 10 or even 2.
Of course, there are a few places where I can play the game normally, for example, the chat between characters or the menu before every battle.
And even the cinematics, but this sometimes drops my FPS.
I don’t know if the problem is the version of FE I’m using, which is the Europe version, but I want some help to resolve this problem I have.

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

  • Due to AMD’s poorly optimized OpenGL driver, you may experience slowdowns.

You can try dual boot Linux(e.g Ubuntu) to get more performance. AMD’s drivers for OpenGL have poor performance on Windows unfortunately.

Well, I instaled Ubuntu 20.04 LTS, but now I have a new problem.
Every time I reach a dialogue, the game freezes, and I can’t continue playing.
What should I do??

Ah, this game uses AAC audio so you need to do this unfortunately(due to patent issues Citra cannot ship with the decoder):


Read the part about Linux.
