Final Fantasy Explorers Crashes on Startup

Issue:
Final Fantasy Explorers crashes on startup. I do not receive an error message. I recently dumped an installation of the game, along with several other titles, from my 3DS using the Dumping Installed Titles and System Archives dump instructions listed on the Citra site. So far this is the only title that crashes; though the compatibility is listed as “Great”. I was unable to find information on this happening to other Citra users who had attempted to boot the game.

System Information

  • Operating System: Windows 10
  • CPU: AMD Ryzen 5 5600X 6-Core Processor
  • GPU: AMD Radeon RX 6800
  • Citra Version (found in title bar): Nightly 1737 HEAD-28039d3
  • Game: Final Fantasy Explorers
  • Screenshot of Issue (include the full Citra window including titlebar):
    Screenshot is not available, I do not receive a prompt following the crash

UPDATE: I am now able to load FFE - The problem seems to have something to do with the .app file produced when dumping the game with threeDS. I dumped a .cxi copy of the game using GM9 and am now able to start the game without crashing.

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

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

Update: Tried deleting and re-dumping the game using threeDS and I am still experiencing the same problem. The other games I dumped are, at the minimum, launching.

This looks like a badly dumped ROM. Could you try dumping it manually with GM9 instead of ThreeSD?
