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.
  • You are using open source system files for Mii data. This will appear as your Mii having broken graphics, but will not affect the stability of the game. In order to resolve this, please refer to our guide on dumping system files. https://citra-emu.org/wiki/dumping-system-archives-and-the-shared-fonts-from-a-3ds-console/

that ain’t it king but thanks

For port forwarding you need to configure your router to open the port you want Citra to use with your computer, here is an example what I have done in my router that is working for hosting Citra room:

192.168.1.2 is the local IP address my router gave my computer, and I have chosen the default port 24872 to be used on Citra.

Every router is different so this is just an example. After you have successfully port forwarded you should just simply get the IP address from google / whatismyip.com etc. that you give to another person so they can connect to you.

If nothing works you have the option to use a public room from the browser.
