My Citra software has been bugged, it didn’t notified me for update. I also tried Help>Check for Updates and it said “No Updates found”, but the update is available and no updates found? This is weird it has been bugged, and I created a topic to ask if I uninstalled Citra and reinstalled it, do I have nightly 1753? If I am gonna do this, I feel my entire save files is gone after reinstall Citra, does it erase my save files? If so, then how do I backup my save files? (Sorry for my grammar English)
My Citra version: Nightly 1716
Are you using a portable build (do you have a folder called
user in the same folder as Citra’s executable "citra-qt(.exe))? If so, back-up the
user folder somewhere safe. Then install Citra using Citra’s installer. After installation, open up the updated Citra and go to
File>Open Citra Folder. Move the contents of the
user folder you backed up into the folder that opened up and overwrite when prompted.
If there isn’t a
user folder in your executable folder, then you’re fine to just delete the build and (re-)install Citra using Citra’s installer. Your save files shouldn’t be affected.
Where can I find user folder? File>Open Citra Folder>nand>data>00000000000000000000000000000000>extdata>00048000>F000000B and there is user folder???
Or the user folder should be in Citra folder?
^ Citra will store the folders in your screenshot inside of a folder called
user if it detects that
user folder in the same location as where citra-qt(.exe) is located. If that folder doesn’t exist for you in that location:
Ahh gotcha, now I understand what you mean. It‘s difficult to me to understand lol but thank you, it‘s helpful
So even if user doesn‘t exist, should I take Citra Folder to somewhere safe and uninstall or just uninstall Citra?
Citra saves it’s installation data and updater to
%localappdata%/citra. Citra saves it’s user data to
%appdata%/citra (so this contains your save files and such). When you uninstall Citra,
%localappdata%/citra gets deleted,
%appdata%/citra remains unaffected.
So uninstalling shouldn’t affect your save files whatsoever. However, you can always back up your user folders regardless. It’s never a bad idea to have an extra back up just in case after all.
