I need help loading a save state

let me give more context, I have been playing pokemon y and all is fine but Citra asks me if I want to update as a new version came out, I ignored it for a bit but later ended up updating, now I’m sad, why because I can’t load my save states, I tried downloading older version or deleting and re-installing but it keep saying bad_alloc error when I try to load my save states, nothing works and I had gotten to the 8th gym and ev trained all my pokemon so I would prefer not restarting, anyway can anyone please help, thank you

btw I deleted citra so i cant provide a log file sorry

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.

What version did you use before? There was a hiccup a while back so you had to load the state on an older version then save normally in-game and then you need to load normally on the latest Citra so you can make new save states.

Remember that you still need to save normally in-game even when you use save states to not lose progress like this. Save states are not a replacement for normal saves.
