Game loads and plays for a maximum of 45 seconds, always experience the grey screen/flickering and sound issue by the time I get to the characters name. I get the most play time when v sync is disabled.

Disabling the audio stretching, vsync, and shader cache helped get me through the opening cut scenes, and now I’ve turned the shader cache back on. Game runs great now. Even able to turn it up to 2x internal resolution.

Please try our latest Citra Nightly or Canary builds instead for Android. The play store build hasn’t been updated in years at this point.
