Little black boxes

Issue:
I just got UltraSun for Citra and O have the latest version of it and I am using the nightly mingw folder, and whenever I start it up, it plays well, but then as I start gameplay, little black boxes constantly pop up on the emulator. I tried resetting back to default settings, updated my and tried othert things and it still happens. Any help will be appreciated, but keep in layman terms, please.

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

  • Enabling Accurate Multiplication is recomended in certain games. If you are experiencing graphical glitches, try enabling this option.

Nope, that did not do anything… and it crashed

Issue 3

GPU Driver Version: 26.20.100.8141

This driver is outdated, you need to update.

Download and install igfx_win10_100.8587.exe from: https://downloadcenter.intel.com/download/29808/Intel-Graphics-Windows-10-DCH-Drivers?product=196588
direct link: https://downloadmirror.intel.com/29808/a08/igfx_win10_100.8587.exe
Also do this:

  1. Open Citra then go to File->Open Citra Folder
  2. Open shaders folder then delete the opengl folder if it is there.
  3. Emulation->Configure... then click on Graphics on the left
  4. Click on the Advanced tab and turn on Accurate Multiplication

The Disk Shader Cache currently has a bug when Accurate Multiplication is turned off causing it to load all shaders slowly from zero every time you start the game and makes the precompiled cache extrememly large + the RAM usage skyrockets until you crash.

Thank you. I am working on it right now!

It worked!!! No more little black boxes and flickering! Thank you so much! Though I hope I did not damage the ram on this computer too much :frowning:

It’s doing it again, and I followed the directions. It was doing well earlier today, but then it started flickering with small black boxes… again :(. This came up after it needed an update today

Upload a new log please.

Ok I booted it back up, and I am not seeing the flickering/little black boxes now. But at the same time, I want to know hay that happened again…
