Invalid rom format bug

Whenever a game runs a cutscene (presumably a movie file, like the intro of a Fire Emblem title or one of the FMVs in DoA Dimensions, Citra shuts down with the “Invalid rom format” message.

I have no clue why this happens and I know it isn’t the roms as they run fine on the PC version of Citra.

You said it only happens when encountering a cutscene or the like, but the log file suggests that the error happens before the game even fully launches?

What format did you dump your game in?
