FPS drops to 0 at the beginning od the emulation

Issue: When I start an emulation the FPS and speed drops to 0. This issue began to happen the second time I launched Citra (at first it performed normally). The screen freezes and Citra gets super laggy. I waited some time and nothing happened, the emulation remained unresponsive. I’ve tried changing some graphics settings but nothing worked. It doesn’t make sense since I was able to run the emulation the first time I launched Citra… suddently it stopped working! My setup is not high-end but it can handle Citra emulation.

Thank you for your support!

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

It seems Citra doesn’t recognize my AMD Radeon HD 7730M GPU…

You need to go into Radeon settings and setup “Switchable Graphics” for Citra:
