The character miniatures are replaced by gray squares, plus trying to view a character model in 3D makes the screen go dark. It’s still possible to interact with the game, according to the sonds, but it’s not possible to properly play it. Starting from scratch by uninstalling Citra and any vestiges of it also doesn’t help, as in the avatar creation the game freezes with flickering for some odd reason. The game was running perfectly asides from the major known audio bug before a Windows Update.
Excuse me if I fill the following part wrong. I’m not sure if the GPU field is correct.
None of those are for Windows 8, though. I know the support for W8 got discontinued so I tried updating it to 8.1 using the store, but it fails to do so, it says my computer needs to have been updated by Windows Update, but my computer doesn’t want to update and I Googled for a solution, but for each solution proposed, there was a problem I couldn’t get past.
What I find the oddest is that before I updated (a different update, I don’t know exactly what that was) the computer (because it wouldn’t start without me allowing it to update), Citra and tons other stuff were working just fine. After the update everything became fucky and it doesn’t even allow me to remove it.
huh it beats me, maybe you were stuck on an older version up until recently?
you could try nightly-860 as suggested here, which could work even with ‘Enable Hardware Shader’ enabled. but keep in mind that older citra builds aren’t recommended.
Nah, I was updating Citra a lot, was very up to date. Oh well, vacations are coming and I’ll have more time to deal with computer issues then. It’s a bummer I won’t be able to play Fates on the computer for a few weeks, but that’s fine.
Just an update about a thing I found out just now.
I tried logging in Whatsapp Web and it says the last time I had it active, it was on a Windows 8.1, just a few days before the update. Since I only log in Whatsapp Web in my laptop, it means it HAD Windows 8.1, but after the update it went back to Windows 8, somehow. This is really weird, but it explains how I was running Citra before.
How the eff did my Windows de-upgrade after an update? D:<
I found a way to fix Windows Update (it took so long) and updated my Windows to 8.1 and guess what? Everything is back to normal, and I’m not talking about just Citra. All the interface is just as I remember before the weird update I was forced to do. It’s great, no more worries. Phew.
