Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate crashes when navigating to "New Game" or "Continue"

I can open the game and it plays through the opening cinematic all the way to the main menu. I can open options, languages, and DLC tabs, but when I try to either start a new save file or load one, the game and audio freeze, turns my whole screen black for a couple seconds, and Citra goes to an all white screen and becomes unresponsive. I also get a report from AMD software saying it detected a driver timeout (which I assume is why my screen goes black for a bit).

System Information

  • Operating System: Windows 10 64 bit
  • CPU: 7th gen intel core i5 7400
  • GPU: amd radeon rx 480 4gb
  • Citra Version (found in title bar): nightly 1784
  • Game: Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate
  • Screenshot of Issue (include the full Citra window including titlebar):
    Right before crash (either new game or continue instantly crashes game)

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

  • Due to AMD’s poorly optimized OpenGL driver, you may experience slowdowns.
