Lag when cutscenes play in Ace Attorney - Dual Destinies

Whenever I run Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney - Dual Destinies the emulator’s speed drops to around 50%. Sorry about the text in the screenshot being in Spanish

The log file is incomplete. Make sure you follow the steps carefully:

  1. Open Citra, then go to File>Open Citra Folder (Citra>Open Citra Folder if on MacOS) and open up the log folder. Now keep that open in the background.
  2. Launch your game and encounter the problem; crash/slowdown/glitch and close Citra if it doesn’t do so by itself. Do not restart Citra as that will wipe the log of important information!
  3. Now upload the log file in this chat.

I’m pretty sure this should be it. Btw, my citra version is now 1929

You should update your drivers to the latest available:

Secondly, set your CPU Clock Speed slider in the debug settings back to 100% (you may even want to underclock for cutscenes in certain games to speed them up. Be careful with this though, as it can cause freezing if you go too low)
