Because your iGPU has driver bugs, you’ll need to use an older version of Citra in order to prevent random freezing and crashing from occurring until you upgrade your hardware:
Download citra-windows-mingw-20191214-ddb7ead.7z from Release nightly-1392: Merge pull request #5020 from jroweboy/dynamic-mf · citra-emu/citra-nightly · GitHub
Extract it using Winrar or 7zip. Put the extracted folder anywhere you want. Now run citra-qt.exe from the folder and run your game.

AMD’s new GPU drivers requires a workaround that is only present in Citra Canary for now. Please use that in the meantime.


thank you so much, will keep note of the hardware situation

We have a proper fix in Citra Nightly right now. So it should be safe to update.
