Low FPS on MacBook Air (Mojave) - Pokemon X


I am pretty new with Citra so I don’t have any experience. Now my problem is that my Pokemon x isn´t actually working. Its super slow (FPS) and as soon as I start the game (enter my game) it first has 0 FPS and then tunes it up a little. It stays at 10 - 30 FPS but it is barely enjoyable to play that way. Maybe the reason for that is, that I’m using my MacBook Air (Mojave).
Now I´ll try to show you my log and I hope you can help!
Thanks for your replies!

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.

Yeah the Y chips are veeeeeeery low power, the TDP on this one is just 7W.

Well, I don´t have any idea of what you’re talking about. What would you recommend me to do? I got a Mac so does an Intern even work??

Basically what I said was that your MacBook Air is weak :stuck_out_tongue: It simply doesn’t have the horsepower to run Citra at high speed.

Oh okay, that’s a bummer :(. But thanks for your replies!
