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

umm… i dont understand…

Literally every few seconds or just when there is a new screen etc? You should enable Disk Shader Cache to reduce stutters, you might need to clear the old cache first just in case by opening Citra then File->Open Citra Folder and delete shaders\opengl folder.

i did what you suggest and it did helped! but there are still some drops but they are less big then before.
if you might know any other way i can improve the emulation speed i will be glad!

btw. the drops happening literally every few seconds

Since you are on a laptop you might need to do this:

Open Nvidia Control Panel and in Manage 3D settings, set Power management mode to Prefer maximum performance. If you have GeForce Experience installed, turn off Battery Boost:

Finally, use a high performance power plan in Windows, if you can’t select one you can create a new power plan on the left and select high performance that way.

wow! it helped even more! most of the time the game run normal (exept these moments that you enter a battle etc) thanks for the help!
if anything else comes up about some new ways to improve the emulation even in screen changes and battle intros, i will be glad to hear it here!
thx again!
