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

  • You are running out of date drivers for your GPU. You need to install the most recent driver for your graphics card from Intel’s website. Downloads for Graphics

GPU Driver Version 10.18.10.4276

This driver is outdated, you need to update.

Download win64_15.33.53.5161.zip from https://downloadcenter.intel.com/download/29969/Intel-Graphics-Driver-for-Windows-15-33-
direct link: https://downloadmirror.intel.com/29969/a08/win64_15.33.53.5161.zip

then follow this guide to install it: https://www.howtogeek.com/343287/how-to-fix-the-driver-being-installed-is-not-validated-for-this-computer-on-intel-computers/

Your iGPU has driver bugs so you should use this older build until you buy a new computer: https://github.com/citra-emu/citra-nightly/releases/tag/nightly-1392

Thank you but the earlier you mentioned i tired it out, i didnt seem to have save and load functions, so i gotta play without those or am i dumb bout them not being present

Unfortunately, that Citra build didn’t contain Save States yet. So you’ll have to rely on your in-game save files only.
