Here’s some issues I found with your log that might help.

  • Enabling Accurate Multiplication is recomended in certain games. If you are experiencing graphical glitches, try enabling this option.

Your CPU’s iGPU only supports OpenGL 2.1 and Citra requires OpenGL 3.3. You will need to buy a new computer.

welp now im going to depress me out and buy that sh##

You may need to upgrade your graphic card, basic onboard gpu cannot run it.

He is on a laptop so he can’t do that :stuck_out_tongue: and he doesn’t have Thunderbolt 3 connection either so external GPU is out of the question too(also it’s very expensive, better to just build a desktop computer imo).

If he is serious about gaming he definitely should consider a desktop PC.

I’m also play using laptop and have the gpu Nvidia GT640M, it is not external GPU but build-in, he is basically using the mobo gpu and hence got this problem, not sure whether if his laptop really doesn’t have the gpu. If not then yes need to consider building a desktop or can just find other laptop with build-in gpu in package.
