I did not find anything wrong in your log file. Please wait for a moderator to assist.

Make sure you have port forwarded correctly in your router. If you are unable to do so, or are behind a NAT you could try like Hamachi and use the virtual IP that is generated there. Your friend also need to install it, as you need to be in the same virtual network in the program.

You can then simply host an unlisted room and your friend insert your virtual IP in the “Direct Connect to Room”(under Multiplayer menu in Citra at the top).

Hmm… I would not like to release a port in the router… Is there any other way how to play together? But thanks for the answer

Hamachi is one alternative solution which I explained in my last post. It will tunnel your connection, allowing you to host without port forwarding.

You can also join a public room that is already setup properly.

Okay, thanks. I will try it with Hamachi.
