How can I improve my performance in the Fire Emblem games?

I’ve tried a lot of different settings, but in every Fire Emblem game I try, they always run at consistently low framerates. I have a good system and I can run Shin Megami Tensei IV at near perfect speeds, and I can run SMT Strange Journey and SMT Devil Survivor perfectly.

System Information

  • Operating System: Windows 10 Home 64-bit
  • CPU: AMD Ryzen 5 2600 Six-Core Processor 3.4GHz
  • GPU: Radeon RX 570 Series
  • RAM: 16GB
  • Citra Version (found in title bar): Citra Nightly 1636/Citra Canary 1872

Below is a log from when I tried Fates Birthright. I’ve also tried Awakening and Echoes, and they both consistently run at about half the framerate of Fates. If necessary, I can provide logs for Echoes and Awakening as well.

I did not find anything wrong in your log file. Please wait for a moderator to assist.

Please try putting the resolution upscaling back to native in Emulation>Configuration>Graphics.

Hi, sorry for the late response. I forgot to mention, but resolution has 0 effect on overall performance. In fact, when I was playing Echoes, the game performed worse for me at native than at a higher res for whatever reason.
