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


These drivers are outdated, you need to update.

The other thing to do is to use the codes to increase performance(credits to blizzardy):

[60 FPS cap]
60B9F410 00000000
B0B9F410 00000000
00000030 42700000
D2000000 00000000

For 30 FPS, change 427 to 41F. You can try 417 which lowers fps even further but increases speed.

[Disable Stereoscopic 3D]
60B9F564 00000000
B0B9F564 00000000
00006B20 089F036A
D2000000 00000000

Depth in the graphics tab needs to be set to 0% for the code above to work.

Add these codes at Emulation->Cheats

Capcom for some reason set the internal fps cap to 200 which is why it’s pretty slow on Citra, combined with forced FSAA(“3D display”).

WOW this actualy work! (the code part) the speed boost is very nice xD i put it to 30fps for a balance of speed/little frameskipping Thx so much

EDIT: I found one thing if you change the “F” of 41F to A will set it in 20fps cap and each lyrics from A to F increase 2fps caps for a major control of frameskip like put it in C for 24fps cap,
the 15fps you show is too much frameskip D: in 20fps (41A) look better and great speed if needed for low pc

EDIT 2: just found the code for MH4U in compability citra page and its work so well xD and the 30fps cap code part the 41F work same as i said before 41A (20fps cap) for more speed to F

It’s easier to use like and get the hex value from the “Float value” field.

Using the cheats fix my sound problem, but drops my fps to 0. Currently on an old citra mingw build. My specifications are:

CPU: i7 8700k
GPU: Geforce GTX 1050ti
Memory: 2700hz 4 gb RAM
