Is there a way to fully restore default files on citra?

The reason I’m asking is because a while ago my friend was having some problems getting miitopia to run, so I looked up a tutorial to see how to fix the issue. It was mainly for pokemon games, but after doing everything the tutorial said to do, I noticed miitopia still wouldnt run and none of my pokemon games ran after that. I also forgot to make a backup file.
I tried installing a different version and that still didnt work, so I’m curious if there’s any way to full 100% factory reset Citra as if I had just downloaded it for the first time? I hadn’t encountered in issue like that until following the tutorial.

Here’s some issues I found with your log that might help.

  • Due to AMD’s poorly optimized OpenGL driver, you may experience slowdowns.
  • You have cheats enabled. This might cause weird behaviour or crashes. Please disable them and retest if your game is experiencing bugs or crashes.
  • You have mods installed. This might cause weird behaviour or crashes. Please disable them and retest if your game is experiencing bugs or crashes.

I have mods installed for a completely different game, that being OOT3D. Does that effect an entirely seperate rom?

And I disabled all cheats, relaunched the game, and still the same error appeared (new log after disabling all cheats and removing mods from OOT3D

A while back I played a randomizer of Pokemon Y, but it was a completely different ROM using the same save file. Did that happen to effect the actual game itself?

I’ll try deleting the save file and see what happens.

The game can’t be affected by that, but the save data most definitely can.

As for your original question, if you don’t mind nuking your save files for all your games, start Citra, then go to File>Open Citra Folder. Shut down Citra and delete every folder found here. Now uninstall Citra and reinstall it. Citra should now be completely reset.
