I can't download anything on Citra's website


So it’s been 2 days since I’m been trying to download the Citra emulator from the website and my download just keeps stopping every time I download it. It also downloads very slow(3-46 kbps) and it always fails. I think it might have something to do with Github. Why does this happen and how do you fix it?

I'm trying to download citra, but it says it's forbidden

In order for us to provide better support, we need to see the log generated by Citra. This guide will walk you through how you can obtain the log file: How to Upload the Log File.


can you show a screen shot?


Your ISP may be blocking GitHub and you might need a VPN to bypass the block.


The issue with this is that, unless you use the version of Citra without updating, the installer has to download to GitHub.


I have the same issue, when I try to download the emulator, my download stops at half and is always “forbidden”.
I’ve tried:

  • use VPN
  • use other browsers
  • turn off my antivirus
  • download it from other PC
  • download it from my phone

NOTHING works. What should I do?
