Games freezing and crashing shortly after startup

Issue:
Just downloaded Citra and wanted to play Yokai Watch again. I loaded up the first game and noticed that it freezes shortly after the intro cutscene starts. Even skipping the intro I still get a freeze a few minutes into the game.

The log file is incomplete. Make sure you follow the steps carefully:

  1. Open Citra, then go to File>Open Citra Folder (Citra>Open Citra Folder if on MacOS) and open up the log folder. Now keep that open in the background.
  2. Launch your game and encounter the problem; crash/slowdown/glitch and close Citra if it doesn’t do so by itself. Do not restart Citra as that will wipe the log of important information!
  3. Now upload the log file in this chat.
