Issue:
Since i downloaded citra I can’t play anygame cause it’s on 2-3 fps which makes it literally unplayable.

System Information

  • Operating System: Windows
  • CPU: amd fx™-6300 six-core processor
  • GPU: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050
  • Citra Version (found in title bar): Newest
  • Game: Super Pokemon Rumble
  • Screenshot of Issue (include the full Citra window including titlebar):

my log is here: I don’t get why i keep playing with 6 fps Citra log - Pastebin.com

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.

Go to Emulation>Configuration>Graphics>Advanced Tab and enable Hardware Renderer, Hardware Shaders and Shader JIT.
Not sure why you turned these options off in the first place. Turning off Hardware Renderer specifically means that Citra will run in Software Renderer (which is really accurate but also extremely slow).

now instead of 2 FPS it’s 5, doesn’t really seem like an improvement but thank you.

That seems very odd. Are you sure you enabled these settings: afbeelding.
If so, please upload another log file.

yeah I’m very sure. here:new citra log - Pastebin.com

so? Are there any solutions?

Perhaps there is an issue with the regular installation of Citra. Try setting up a portable Citra build:
Download citra-windows-mingw-20210306-8e3c767.7z (direct link) from Release nightly-1696 · citra-emu/citra-nightly · GitHub
Extract it using Winrar or 7zip. Put the extracted folder anywhere you want. Inside the extracted nightly-mingw folder, create a folder called user. Now run citra-qt.exe from the nightly-mingw folder and run your game.

If you’re still experiencing the same issues after this, please upload a log file using the portable Citra version. (you can upload directly to the forums by drag-and-dropping the file you want to upload into the text box).
