I did not find anything wrong in your log file. Please wait for a moderator to assist.

Yeah this is a regression with the CoreTiming changes, you can try underclock Citra in the system tab to like 20% or so but it can cause crashes or use this build until it gets fixed: https://github.com/citra-emu/citra-nightly/releases/tag/nightly-1543

What do I download, and how do I install? I’m pretty new to Citra tbh
