Fire Emblem Fates: Special Edition Fatal Error

Issue:
I was able to play Fates fine 2 days ago until yesterday when I received an update for Citra Nightly 1065. Whenever I try to start up Fates my screen goes black and I instantly get an error message,

“A fatal error has occurred. Check the Log for details. Continuing emulation may result in crashes and bugs.”

Open citra, launch the game, when this message appears click on continue, it may crash or freeze, close citra afterwards, open the folder C:\Users\%username%\AppData\Roaming\Citra\log and upload the citra_log.txt again.

Ah ok! Here is the newly updated Log file

Try changing your system region to ‘Auto-Select’ on Emulation > Configure > General.

Nu uh, it still does the same thing even when I changed the system region to ‘Auto-Select’

Download the previous nightly build or the one after that, or the next, etc. see if the older versions work.

Ok, so even when I get to using an older version. The same issue persists. However the Log file has alot more information now. I am using Citra Nightly 1056. Here is the newest Log file update for it.

EDIT 1: I never had any issue with the builds since… I think 800? Maybe even further back to 600. I am not quite sure. But definitely remember 800.
EDIT: 2:Although I started playing Fates since version 900ish and up till now everything was fine for that game.

I found some issues in that log that need resolving:

  • Citra is currently utilizing open-source system files which may cause emulation to be less accurate, but not affect system stability.

Did you install any mod, update or DLC?

Any mods? No I haven’t installed anything besides the base game. Although I did plan on installing the DLC and a mod that adds unrecruitable characters to my army. But that’s kinda irrelevant since I didn’t install anything besides just the game itself. As for updates, the only updates I got was from Citra itself to update the emulator itself. Which is when I couldn’t play it anymore. None of my other games have that issue. Just Fates.

there is an error: Unexpected file or directory in C:\Users\metal\AppData\Roaming/Citra/sdmc/Nintendo 3DS/00000000000000000000000000000000/00000000000000000000000000000000/title/00040000/00179800/data/00000001/AddonData

try moving that AddonData folder elsewhere. if that doesn’t work move the entire save folder 00179800.

OMG THANK YOU SO MUCH BIO! You’re the best! Although… Why was the addon folder there? I didn’t place it there? It just kinda appeared there.

it beats me tbh…

Well then! Consider the case of the mysterious Fatal Error… Solved!
