I was playing Pokemon Super Mystery Dungeon, and the game started having serious issues loading new cutscenes and areas. The areas issue wasn’t so bad, the game just stuttered for a moment, so it was pretty manageable. The cutscene one is worse, however. When loading in cutscenes I haven’t played before, the game got stuck on the black screen from a previous fade-out (which was meant to fade-in to the new one), and while I could hear the sound effects and text blips, I couldn’t see anything. …Then the audio started to stutter, worse than I’ve ever heard it. Citra stopped responding for a moment, too, as if it was going to crash. After a bit of horrible audio and a black screen, the visuals that were meant to fade it suddenly appeared and everything seemingly went back to normal.
This happened twice today - first with the scene where Deerling, Pancham and Shelmet are outside the Foreboding Forest, and again with the scene that plays after you return and talk with Nuzleaf. I had closed Citra and messed with the configuration a little bit - because the first time all that had happened was just some lag and minor audio stuttering for a moment, and when I tried again and it played that scene like normal, I got through the gameplay level with no issues, and the following scene where you talk with all the characters had run without any issue even though I hadn’t gotten to that scene before, so I assumed I had fixed it. …Clearly, I did not, because once the following scene with Nuzleaf played, the problem came back.
I assume the area loading issue and the cutscene issue may be connected, however I’m not entirely sure.

I think this is the right log file? I opened Citra a couple of times after the issue 'cause I thought maybe I could figure something out on my own. Sorry if it isn’t the right one.
