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.

My apologies - here it is. I think this should be correct. citra_log.txt (5.9 KB)

Disable the Disk Shader Cache in Citra>Preferences>Graphics>Advanced Tab.

That worked, thank you!!
